We take Nissan's biggest and baddest SUV for a spin to see how it stacks up.

Detroit, Michigan

Nissan's entry in the fullsize, three-row SUV market is all-new for 2017, and it offers a fairly compelling mix of ability and economy relative to the competition. Not the least of which is the entertainingly old-school V8 engine under the hood.

There are, of course, tradeoffs.  For one, it’s hard to argue for the Armada’s bulbous styling and rather old-fashioned tech compared to sharper designs and faster software from the GM platform mates (Suburban, Tahoe, Yukon, Escalade).

Want to get a clearer picture on the negatives vs. the positives for the Armada redux? Well, our latest video is here to help.
