Combining power and space in an SUV has never felt more effortless than the 2017 Nissan Armada. How do we know? The Armada is the winner of the SUV of the Year honor from Popular Mechanics. It’s clear that the Armada has pulled away from the rest of the SUV fleet out on the Waterloo roads.

Every year, Popular Mechanics releases their Automotive Excellence Awards. The winners are determined by their editorial staff, after taking every vehicle in every segment for a test drive. What makes the SUV of the Year win more impressive for the Armada? The editorial staff only declares the top choice in each segment. No second place; no sub-categories. Just the best.

With a new 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine leading the way, dominance comes naturally to the Armada. It can power up to 390 horsepower (which is best in its class) and tow up to 8,500 pounds (about 3,855.5 kg). Throw in four wheel drive, advanced safety technology, and three rows of seats, and the Armada is ready to bring everyone along for a capable journey.
