I'm between 12-14 in the city 16-17 highway.Ted Turner said:Hi Folks,
I'm interested in what your actual mileage is. The lease is up on my Toyota Sequoia and I'm thinking about getting an Armada. I'm currently averaging 16-17 MPG with my Toyota.
You forgot to mention the $76k base (gas engine) priceTitanIam said:Man 15 mpg is piss-poor. Yeah, I know I keep harping on it but diesel is the answer. Nissan have Renault and Nissan Diesel as resources so let's hope the 2007 Amrada Diesel is as great as their Endurance gas engine.
These are the stats of the 4L M/B 420CDI V8 common-rail diesel and what Nissan should be trying to emulate:
0-60 in 6.1 seconds
150 mph (limited)

Why? The GL is a different class to the Armada. Of course it will be $30k more than a QX.Cillyone said:You forgot to mention the $76k base (gas engine) price
If you think that Nissan is going to put anything less than a full blown truck type diesel in the Titan/Armada you are dreaming, do you think they want to make the Toyota T-100 like mistake and have an underpowered truck compared to the competition. Domestic diesel options range form $5600 for Dodge with a manual trans to GM at $7600 with the mandatory Allison upgrade. I am sure the diesel option from Nissan will be at least $5K and that will buy a LOT of gasoline. I myself am buying a cherry used Dodge HO 6spd Cummins from a good friend very soon and will become an oil burner.TitanIam said:Why? The GL is a different class to the Armada.

If you look at the price of the M/B E320 vs the E320CDi you will not see a significant price difference. Also the Jetta TDi is only hundreds more than it's gasoline counterpart.
Point is, is that Nissan could deliver a diesel Titan/Armada at a cost close to it's gasoline counterpart and should not fall into the 'heavy duty' trap for pricing. Let's hope not.
...repeat after me: TWENTY FIVE MILES PER GALLON !!!!!
