AutoPacific Take on Nissan Armada’s Win – The Nissan Armada wins the inaugural Motorist’s Choice Award® for the Utility Vehicle class. Armada also won AutoPacific’s 2006 Vehicle Satisfaction Award® for its class. Owner ratings for exterior styling, seating capacity, driver’s seat comfort and ease of getting in and out were important factors in its win. However, Armada really excels in being Fun to Drive with excellent ratings for power and acceleration from its standard 5.6L V8 engine. Owners’ perceptions of feeling safe while driving and Armada’s reliability and dependability also contributed to its win.
IntelliChoice Analysis – Following on the heels of it’s corporate cousin, the Motorist’s Choice winning Infiniti QX56, the Armada sets the standard for exciting and rewarding full size SUVs. With a 5 year Ownership Cost of just $48,372, $1700 less than it’s competitors, the Armada blends the virtues that have helped so many drivers fall in love with Nissan’s big SUV.
