Powerful and rugged full-sized SUV; seats up to eight; plenty of cargo space and towing capacity
When it comes to brute power, the Armada is king. Its V8 engine can handle three rows of people, at least 6,500 pounds in tow and the gear that goes with it all. The three available trim levels offer a price point for almost everyone, with the Platinum model having all the luxury appointments of its competitors, but at a lower price.
