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.
