Full-size SUVs have become luxury vehicles. When you just want three rows of seats, a good minivan or mid-size crossover can cost under $35,000. But when you demand road-dominating presence or heavy-duty towing capabilities, a full-size model typically costs $50,000 and up. And once you add enough options, best-sellers like the Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon, and Ford Expedition can top $80,000.
If you’re looking to spend a little less, you might consider the Nissan Armada. It’s not dirt-cheap either, with a base price of $48,600, but it provides lots of features for the money whether you want a base model or a well-equipped one. And although it has been around for a while, the Armada is newly updated this year with revised styling, a more advanced interior, and a more powerful engine. Let’s go over the details of this often-overlooked full-size SUV to consider whether it deserves to steal more customers from its more popular competitors.
