Nissan LEAF, Armada Repeat in KBB.com 5-Year Cost to Own Awards

2021 Nissan Armada | Greenville, MS

The value of driving and owning a Nissan is being celebrated once more with the 2022 Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Awards. The LEAF takes home its fifth consecutive honor while the Armada has two consecutive wins under its safety belt.

For the LEAF and Armada to win, they had to prove to KBB.com’s panel of judges what drivers could expect in depreciation, the cost of fuel, fees for insurance coverage and financing plans, state fees, and the projected price of maintenance and repairs when behind the wheel of the eco-friendly LEAF or adventure-ready Armada.

“This data allows new-car shoppers to see the big picture of what a new vehicle will cost them over time, helping them to save money by choosing a vehicle that best meets their needs and their long-term budget,” said Janice Yoell, senior manager of valuations for Kelley Blue Book.

2014 Nissan Armada Still Holding Strong as a Full-Bodied SUV

2014 Nissan Armada

The 2014 Nissan Armada is one of the few full-sized SUVs still doing well in 2014, but there’s a reason that it’s hanging on in this market of shrinking utility vehicles. For all the focus on lightweighting and working towards EPA rating by midsizing, there is still a sizeable demographic of people who need the room that the 2014 Armada offers.

The interior is the most important part of this large and in charge SUV. There are three rows of spacious seating for you and your entire crew. Your top-level Platinum choice will get you the whole shebang of extras, of course, getting your second-row passengers heated seats and video monitors in the front headrests, so those long drives in the approaching winter will be comfortable and entertaining.  The 2014 Armada also boasts a total of about 173.8 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s a lot of luggage room!

The drive is a lot easier than you might expect in the big-bodied Armada. The 5.6-liter V8 engine yields 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque to provide plenty of capability, too. You can comfortably take this beast around corners without that anxious feeling of top-heaviness, and it’s ready to handle a decent amount of off-roading, as well.

James Ceranti Nissan is glad to see Nissan’s well-polished Armada still around. For more information on why it might just be the SUV for you, be sure to stop by.

Why An SUV May Be Right For You

Until a few years ago, SUVs were not buyers’ first choice because of the heftier price-tag. Small mid-size cars won out. The economy was hard as it was and everyone wanted to save a buck or two. But thanks to the economy bouncing back and a rise in individual pay, SUVs became an option again. Recent trends show a shift away from high-end sedans towards family-size SUVs. Think about it, would you rather drive cross country in a tiny coupe or a spacious 7-seater? Nissan Xterra SUVDon’t sacrifice style just because you have to tote the kids around, though. The stereotype of minivan-driving soccer mom is waiting to be broken. With three SUVs to choose form, Nissan offers something for everyone. The Pathfinder may be the most common of the three with its bold lines and technology like the Nissan Intelligent Key. If adventure is calling your name, check out the Xterra. It seats five, has great cargo space and you can buy a hatch tent attachment to make camping a breeze. If elegance is more your style, the Armada is calling your name. Premium comfort and room for 8 mark this as the largest of the Nissan SUV lineup. Keep the kids entertained with dual headrest DVD monitors. SUVs are made for long-distance traveling, made with sturdy bones which also provide top-notch safety for your family.
