Nissan Armada

Nissan Armada

We’re sure that Nissan still wants its full-sized Armada to do well, but there’s just a number of things about it that makes the though of it burning up the sales floor a pipe-dream. In a market that includes the Toyota Land Cruiser and the Jeep Grand Cherokee , Nissan isn’t doing the Armada justice by keeping its outdated looks going.

That’s the biggest concern we have of the Armada, but its not the only one. The SUV does have a lot of optional equipment available, which is a good thing if the Armada’s basic template was already good enough to stand on its own. But it’s not, and Nissan should’ve just done its customers a solid by at least adding some of this equipment as standard features.

It’s performance numbers is up-to-par with its competitors, which is a sigh of relief. But for the most part, the Armada really deserved better than what Nissan’s giving it in it in 2014.

So we’re hoping that a next-gen model is in the works. Otherwise, the Armada will likely continue to loiter in obscurity, as its rivals take most of its sales away.
