Review Roundup 2022 Nissan Armada Post


The Nissan Armada is as durable and beastly as its name implies. And the all-new 2022 Armada is truly a no-nonsense, full-size, off-road SUV with a powerful V8 engine that you'll quickly fall in love with. With its biggest competitors being the Ford Expedition and Chevrolet Tahoe, the Armada again blows them out of the water. 

As the 2022 Nissan Armada is hitting the streets all around the New Port Richey area, your friends at Maus Nissan of New Port Richey wanted to share some of the best full-size SUV reviewers have to say about the formidable 2022 Nissan Armada.

Many of these reviewers got to experience the durability, performance, and handling of the Armada for themselves and have plenty to rave about. So, let's see what they said after their close encounter with the 2022 Nissan Armada. 

Kelly Lin of MotorTrend says that this full-size SUV has incredible power under the hood. 

"A beast of an engine, the 5.6-liter V-8 engine delivers 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque in the Armada. A seven-speed automatic transmission routes power to either the rear wheels, or all four wheels, depending on the configuration."

Car and Driver's Eric Stafford touched on the improved driving and handling experience that comes when you get behind the wheel of the 2022 Nissan Armada.

"Our test vehicle had a smooth and hushed ride even though it rolled on 22-inch wheels (18-inches are standard). Its soft-riding nature didn't negatively affect our sense of control, but its steering was imprecise and slow to react, which allowed the SUV to wander on the highway like a member of its Spanish namesake. Along with impressive results in our emergency-braking test, the Nissan's brake pedal delivered good feel and consistent feedback."

When it comes to how the Armada stacks up against its biggest competitors, Cars.com's Jane Ulitskaya had this to say: 

"The Armada's refresh for 2021 made it more competitive in the full-size SUV class, where it competes against SUVs like the Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia. The 2022 Armada's starting price falls below those three SUVs, yet the Armada boasts higher standard horsepower and tow ratings."

As far as the trim levels to go with on the 2022 Nissan Armada, Edmunds' Christian Wardlaw hits it right on the head. 

"The sweet spot in the 2022 Nissan Armada lineup is the SL trim level. It adds many of the features most people prefer, such as larger wheels, leather seats, a power front passenger seat, remote engine start and a premium sound system, at a competitive price. You can also option the Armada SL with captain's chairs or a Midnight Edition package with trendy blacked-out exterior trim."

Even the interior is getting rave reviews from Eric Stafford of Car and Driver!

"A cushy and spacious interior supplements the Armada's classy outer shell. Its cabin is well insulated from outside noise, and most materials are attractive and soft…. Even compared with newer rivals, the Armada feels fancy and has plenty of third-row legroom. The top-of-the-line Platinum model has quilted seat surfaces and imitation open-pore wood trim, accentuating the luxury-SUV ambiance."

This is just a glimpse of the many great reviews for the 2022 Nissan Armada.
