Eric's Autos: Reviewing the 2018 Nissan Armada
Except for the price, it's basically the same as an Infiniti QX80.
It has a roomier second row than rivals like the Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition.
It has the strongest standard engine in its class.
What's Not So Good
It's almost half a foot longer than a Tahoe.
It also has the widest turning circle of the bunch (20.6 feet).
There's not as much cargo room as the Expedition.
Under the Hood
The Armada's standard engine is a 390-horsepower 5.6-liter V-8. Behind the brawny V-8 is a seven-speed automatic with racy rev-matching downshifts similar to what you'd get in Nissan's 370Z sports car. This is an unusual and unusually cool thing to find in a burly SUV.
