Even though it's now the oldest design among full-size utility vehicles, the Nissan Armada looks very butch and better-looking than most.

Expert Quotes:

Its sharply cut lines mix well with its bulbous fender extensions and sloping side lines
Motor Trend

From the flared fenders to the huge chrome grille, the Armada is only a few notches down the butch ladder from the Hummer H2.
Car and Driver

to me the Armada is about the ugliest SUV ever made (the Pontiac Aztek was really a minivan, so it doesn’t count)
MSN Autos



Almost nothing about the design of the 2011 Nissan Armada is subtle. It looks macho and imposing from nearly all angles on the outside, and the flared wheel wells are still among the largest and most exaggerated among full-size trucks. The roofline, with a slight upward curve to the point that it meets a wider pillar at the rear door (with the rear-door latch up high) is, besides creating a stylish silhouette, a nod to the former Pathfinder, and the very upright profile front and back projects a serious impression.

Inside the look isn't nearly as aggressive-looking—it's actually now one of the more softly-contoured designs in this competitive set—and while it's one of the more dated designs among full-size trucks it still feels well-laid out and straightforward. Smaller controls and more delicate buttons in general, though, project that it takes aim at suburban types more than the work-gloved crowd.

Conclusion

Even though it's now the oldest design among full-size utility vehicles, the Nissan Armada looks very butch and better-looking than most.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
