2008 Nissan Armada review and picture


The 2008 Nissan Armada is such a steady choice that its features are being used to better many of the other cars in the Nissan line up. In its fifth year of being on the market, the Armada has greatly improved but still remains one of the better choices of sports utility vehicles on the market these days and offers some strong competition for its rivals. Still, you have to know how to handle this baby to get everything that can be got out of it, and its strong points need to be emphasized. If you aren’t able to do this, it might be better for you to look into other full size SUVs.

The Good:

  • strong V8 engine
  • great performance
  • off road capability
  • high towing capacity
  • spacious
  • third row seat folds flat

The Bad:

  • some of the materials used on the interior are poor in quality
  • spacious but not as much as its rivals
  • no good on fuel efficiency
  • wide turns and thick handling

The Nissan Armada isn’t all new for the 2008 model year, but it does come with a few interesting changes, one of the main ones being that it has been made over into a more luxury oriented SUV, while still retaining its off the road charm. It’s equipped with a redesigned set of headlights and a brand new grille, as well as a new look for the cabin and a bunch of new technology features. One of these new features is a navigation system, and they also include Bluetooth connectivity and remote start. The navigation system is a quality one, with nine gigabytes for storage of music files.

A full sized SUV, the 2008 Nissan Armada comes in two trim levels, the SE and LE. At the base level is the SE trim, which comes standard with the following features:

  • dual zone automatic climate control
  • full power accessories
  • eight speaker sound system
  • auto dimming rear view mirror
  • 18 inch wheels
  • CD changer
  • MP3 input jack

At the top of the line is the LE trim level, which really brings the luxury and technology with more and better features, including:

  • ten speaker sound system
  • second row captain chairs
  • heated front seats
  • 20 inch alloy wheels
  • keyless ignition
  • leather upholstery
  • rear view monitor

Those features that come with the LE trim level can, for the most part, also be added as options to the base SE trim level. There are more options besides that, such as captain’s chairs, which lowers the amount of passengers that can be fit, Bluetoth connectivity, auto dimming side mirrors, a navigation system that can store music, a sunroof, satellite radio, and rear DVD entertainment system.
