We usually do it by dividing up in two cars which becomes ungainly and socially difficult.
The 2013 Nissan Armada allows you to take the entire group in one vehicle at one time.
Nissan built the Armada as a large, powerful SUV with good towing capacity and off-road capabilities.
The 5.6 liter, V8 engine puts out 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft. of torque and will go from zero to 60 mph in around seven seconds.
The car weighs between 5,251 and 5,814 pounds depending on the drive system and seven seconds from stop to sixty is better than respectable.
The Environmental Protection Agency rates the Armada at 13 city and 19 highway mpg for the two wheel drive and 12 city and 18 highway for the four wheel drive.
The Armada can haul an amazing 97.1 cubic feet of cargo with the second and third seats folded flat and can tow as much as 9,000 pounds depending on the towing package selected.
It has good ground clearance at 9.8 inches for the two wheel drive and 10.4 inches for the four wheel drive model. It’s a big SUV and Nissan installed brakes to match the Armada’s size with 13.8 inch by 1.2 inch front vented disc and 12.6 inch by .6 inch rear discs.
Nissan made four-wheel anti-lock braking, electronic brake force distribution system and brake assist standard on all Armada’s.
The wheels on the Armada can be either 18 inch aluminum alloy or 20 inch aluminum alloy and can be mounted with P265/70R18 or P275/60R20 all season tires. The Armada comes standard with a full sized spare.
Nissan’s options and standard equipment list allow the buyer to customize their Armada to meet their needs.
Options and standard equipment include oil pan skid plate on four wheel drive models, running boards, dual front tow hooks, heated outside mirrors, front and rear sonar systems, power lift-gate, keyless entry and ignition system, navigation system, information system with a color monitor, Bluetooth connectivity, rearview camera, heated front and second row seats and a DVD entertainment system with an 8.0 inch monitor.
