2008 Nissan Armada Review

The 2008 Nissan Armada SUV, with seating for up to eight, offers a smooth ride on independent rear suspension and the power to tow up to 9,100 lbs. The Armada is available in two models, the SE ($34,950) and LE ($40,250.) Both are powered by a 317 horsepower, 5.6-liter, V8 engine, and come with a five-speed automatic transmission. Both front-wheel and four-wheel drive are available.

Estimated fuel efficiency on both the SE and LE is 13 mpg city, 19 highway on the 4x2 and 13/18 for the 4x4. Both have a 28 gallon fuel tank. Interior passenger volume is 188.4 cubic feet with cargo capacity at 20 cubic feet when all seats are up and 97.1 when they are down. Maximum ground clearance for the Armada is 9.86 inches to 10.69 inches. The driver's seat is adjustable eight ways, the fold-down front passenger seat six. The second row is a 40/20/40 on the SE and fold-flat captain's chairs on the LE. The third row is a 60/40 split flat-folding bench seat.

The standard audio system on the SE is an eight-speaker AM/FM in-dash 6-CD unit with MP3/WMA capability. The LE has a ten-speaker Bose audio system. Both models of the 2008 Nissan Armada are pre-wired for satellite radio and a back-seat DVD entertainment system is an option.
