2008 Nissan Armada LE 4x4 Review
Plenty of what you want, but uses plenty of gasoline too
What’s New – For 2008 Nissan has made significant changes to the interior of the Armada. Better quality materials make for a more luxurious cabin, and overall it’s a welcome upgrade from previous years.
Competes With: Chevrolet Tahoe, Toyota Sequoia, Ford Expedition
What We Think – The Armada has a comfortable spacious interior and it’s quiet, especially for a truck. With a towing capacity of 9,000 pounds and the capability to carry almost 1,500 pounds of people and equipment, the Armada can also haul a lot of fun stuff.
Nissan Armada LE 4x4 – 2008 Review: Here in the Land of Plenty, we enjoy perhaps the widest variety of automobiles from which to choose as anywhere on the planet, including large sport utility vehicles. You know, the kind with plenty of space inside, and plenty of hauling and towing capacity. Unfortunately, there’s a trade-off: they consume lots of gasoline, which costs plenty of money.

You can go down the list when considering the 2008 Nissan Armada and check the box next “Plenty” on every score. Like all large, four-wheel drive SUVs, plentiful economy isn’t one of its strong points. We can hope for the future – clean diesel or hybrid – but in the here and now those faced with the need for a large vehicle like this will have to pay at the pump. That’s the bad news.
The good news is that if you need a large SUV and can afford some luxury, the Armada LE does a good job of filling those qualifications. A spacious interior made from nice materials, 9,000 lbs. of towing capacity and nearly 1,500 lbs. of payload is a lot of utility. There are also plenty of the nifty features that buyers expect for $50,000, including a rear view monitor, navigation system and heated seats and steering wheel.
