Armada is a truck just check the specs...But that is right for heavy pull...get it. For cozy savvy stylish ride take the Murano.

If you are a practical buyer you can take this crossover Murano for other Euro brands that have higher price and of same features.

With this new pricing like Toyota, Nissan must be very careful in knowing what it so be marketed for these two cars.

This will cater to select buyer only. Like for the Armada. So in the end Nissan must pull it well in the market as it goes on sale this May.

Yup Murano’s 360 value offer is good. Coz’ this technology savvy features are only offered on more expensive crossover. So getting the substance and style in lower a price in not bad at all.

For most practical buyers who are looking for extra space, a three-row crossover is a better option. Plus the 360 value offer for Murano...its really a better deal than the Armada. Think about it.

As I know the similarly priced Ford Expedition and Chevy Tahoe both drive better that the Armada while serving the same needs. Although Armada makes some sense if you need an SUV that can tow a large amount or go off-road.

Yes, I see Armada and I see a running plastic truck. But Murano’s 360 value offer as a crossover line up is definitely enticing.

Just a little comment about the good interior for the Armanda. I think the Armada doesn’t offer as much interior space as its external dimensions might suggest, and the steering wheel and secondary vibrations that radiate through the cabin continually remind you that this is a truck-based vehicle. In addition, many of the interior plastics remind you of the cost cutting days at Nissan. Maybe for some sort of handy technology it does but not the overall performance of the car.

With the technology savvy upgrades for these two SUV of Nissan, I don’t think that they deserve to earn recognition from it after all. This 2010 Nissan SUV line up is promising anyways.

I beg to disagree! I think Mitsubishi is lot better. Anyway, in fairness to Nissan, I like the interior of the new Armada. It’s not every motor company who pays special attention to the interior.

With all those amazing specs, I wouldn’t mind spending more than $40K. Besides, we’re talking about Nissan. They might not be the best but I believe, performance wise, they are better than any other Japanese brands.
