The 2017 Nissan Armada has been named the Popular Mechanics SUV of the Year in the annual Popular Mechanics Automotive Excellence Awards, which was presented in conjunction with the 2017 New York International Auto Show. The nine awarded vehicles are featured in the May issue of Popular Mechanics, on sale now.
Popular Mechanics highlighted that the Nissan Armada offers “a luxury SUV experience at a Nissan price,” and that the Armada “does it best” in terms of delivering an 8-passenger SUV with low-range 4-wheel drive.
The Popular Mechanics editorial staff drive every vehicle in each segment to determine the winners, and no second-place picks are chosen, and there aren’t any category divisions beyond overall segments like Pickup, SUV, and so on. Nissan cites that consumers “are in agreement with the experts at Popular Mechanics” due to a 156% increase in Armada sales in 2017.
The 2017 Armada starts an all-new generation of the vehicle, with a new design, a 5.6-liter Endurance V8 with best-in-class horsepower, a new 7-speed automatic transmission, and more features than any vehicle in its class, including Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Backup Collision Intervention, Moving Object Detection, and many more.
