The 2007 Nissan Armada sits on a 123.2-inch wheelbase and measures 206.9 inches long overall.

Good-quality materials spruce up the interior, and passengers enjoy a comfortable ride. Numerous storage bins throughout the cabin store gear. Back-up sensors come standard, as do power adjustable pedals. Gauges look easy to read, and controls seem simple to operate. With its more than 10-inch ground clearance, visibility of the road ahead looks good.

Standard safety equipment includes four-wheel ABS with emergency braking assist, electronic stability control, traction control, tire pressure monitoring, electronic brake force distribution, front and rear solid disc brakes, dusk-sensing headlights, rear parking sensors, front seat-mounted side airbags, and side-curtain airbags for all three rows.
