Let's just say this decision will not be based on what you think- I don't need a bed but I also don't need a third seat.
I do want a large, safe vehicle that is FUN and different than all the rest. Test drove the Titan CC 4x4 and it was love. Great power and sound.
Test drove an Armada awhile ago but need to test again.
Love the looks of both.
Are they the same in terms of fun? (I know that the Titan has leafs in back and does not have full time 4wd)
Does the extra weight of the Armada take away the fun that the lighter weight Titan has or are they so close the difference is only the third row seat?
Ready to buy so please guide me here!
Great forum!!
Thanks in advance

The Armada and Titan are siblings, but they really represent two distinctly different groups. The Armada is about carrying people, and the Titan is about mix-mode. Short-bed doesn't do either real well.

The Armada LE (captains chairs 2nd row) can carry 4 adults as comfortably as any vehicle on the road. Awesome room, tremendous visibility, quite smooth ride. It's like your in your own zip code.

Design wise, it's obvious the Titan/Armada was completed around the Armada. The Titan's rear end lacks serious continuity with the front of the vehicle. The Armada has a very complete looking design, like it or not.

The problem with the Armada is that half the drivers are Soccer Mom's. Pretty ridiculous actually. They have no idea how to navigate in such a large machine in tight areas or back the thing up if they had to, or really appreciate the Engineering of such a fine machine. They drive them cause their husbands were too pridefull to buy them a MiniVan.

I can't agrue that Minivans are about as Manly as a lawn chair, but now a major demographic of full size SUV's are Mom's. Titans are still dominated by guys drivings because they love trucks!

Something to think about.

Armada has faster than titan. Not sure why. Maybe the rear? The Armada is only 300 lbs more vs. a comparably equiped titan. I find I use the 3rd row more than I thought. I went with an SUV because I figured I could get a trailer for a grand and haul whatever I want like a truck, but also have the benefits of the SUV. Glad I did. I also like the SUV on road trips more. The second row is more comfy than the Titan. But then again, it costs more. You need to prioritize what is right for you. ;)
