2. Nissan Armada
Looking at a 2015 Nissan Armada is kind of like going back in time a few years, style-wise. It’s narrow boxy exterior is paired with a more utilitarian interior lacking in many of the gadgets of a modern SUV. Despite this, the Armada is still a powerful, sturdy vehicle. The 9,000 lbs. towing capacity is made possible by a 5.6-liter V-8 engine. Owners get about 317 hp and 385 lb-ft of torque out of this one, which is a little less than other contemporary vehicles. As far as ride is concerned, up to eight passengers will feel little thanks to the independent rear suspension. Go for the four wheel drive and optional towing package.
