Popular Mechanics Names the 2017 Nissan Armada the SUV of the Year

Even on the coast of Maine, you don't need a fleet of ships to rule. All you need is the 2017 Nissan Armada. How do we know? The Armada was named the SUV of the Year by Popular Mechanics. The combination of a powerful engine, premium cabin, and safety features makes the Armada the king of the Sanford roads.

Popular Mechanics' editorial staff took every vehicle in every segments for a test drive, and used the experience to determine the winners of their annual Automotive Excellence Awards. And out of all SUVs, they determined that the Armada is the best. What could make this win more impressive? There are no second place winners or subcategories. It's simply win it all or nothing. Don't you want an SUV that chooses to win it all?

It's not surprising that the Armada was chosen as the winner among SUVs. After all, it can carry up to eight passengers in a comfortable cabin, powered by a 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine. That engine packs a best-in-class 390 horsepower rating, and can tow up to 8,500 pounds. On top of power, it's also capable, offering four-wheel drive. That'll come in handy when tackling winter roads in Dover, Rochester, and Saco.
