Behind the new West Virginia-front-tooth grille of the 2008 Armada, this SUV is largely unchanged. Sure, it gets new headlight designs, a new rear fascia, and an updated interior, but beyond that, it's all content. Outside, that content includes twenty-inch wheels and two new paint colors. Inside, a headed steering wheel is optional, as is a power folding third row seat. Nissan has added a bundle of new entertainment goodies, too, including Bluetooth, XM radio with NavTraffic real-time traffic info, and a new Bose stereo with Nissan's new Music Box hard drive, third row speakers, and an amplifier. While those new goodies might help keep the Armada competitive with new SUVs from Ford and Chevrolet, we're not so sure the new front end will help.
