Nissan's entry into the full-size SUV market is certainly bold and masculine. Some may find the styling a little too unusual for this relatively conservative segment. A smooth and powerful 5.6L DOHC V-8, mated to a 5-speed automatic provides the power and torque (305 bhp/385 lb.-ft.) for heavy-duty towing (up to 9,100 lbs.). A fully independent rear suspension improves ride and handling. The Armada will accommodate up to 8 passengers in 3-row seats. Entertainment via a DVD player and 256-watt Bose(R) MP3/CD audio system is available.
