Expert Rating

4.5 (Excellent)
13 City / 19 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2013 Nissan Armada OVERVIEW

The 2013 model year is essentially a carryover year for the Armada, as it only features minimal changes. These minor changes include: standard video monitors on the Platinum trim level, laterally adjustable sun visors, standard power passenger seat, USB and VTR jacks, standard Bluetooth connectivity, and five new exterior colors. The largest addition to the 2013 model year is the Platinum Reserve Package, which adds in: 20-inch dark-chrome rims, dark-chrome grille and side-view mirrors, premium Chocolate/Almond leather seats, and dark chrome interior accents in a satin finish.

Standard on every 2013 Armada is a 5.6-liter V-8 engine that pumps out 317 horsepower and 385 foot-pounds of torque. This engine connects to a five-speed automatic transmission that tosses the power to the rear wheels. Four-wheel drive is an available option. The Armada can tow up to 8,200 pounds with two-wheel drive and 9,000 pounds with four-wheel drive, so it is ready to hauls just about anything a family can toss at it. Unfortunately, its 13 mpg city and 19 mpg highway with two-wheel drive, and 12 mpg city and 18 mpg highway with four-wheel drive can hurt the wallet a little. However, what full-size SUV gets good gas mileage?

In terms of competition, the sub-luxury, full-size SUV market is a pretty full one. The Armada’s key competitor is the 2013 Toyota Sequoia, which features a 5.7-liter V-8 engine with 381 horsepower, a 7,500-pound towing capacity, 13 mpg city and 18 mpg highway, and standard cloth seating for eight. Next up is the 2013 GMC Yukon with its 320-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 engine, 8,500-pound towing capacity, 15 mpg city and 21 mpg highway, and standard premium cloth seating for eight. Finally comes the 2013 Ford Expedition, which comes standard with a 5.4-liter V-8 engine that produces 310 horsepower, a 9,200-pound towing capacity, 14 mpg city and 20 mpg highway, and cloth seating for eight people.

Competition is plentiful, so the Armada must really deliver in the 2013 model year, is Nissan expects to continue offering this full-size SUV.
