Nissan Armada Drops V-8

In a rapidly greening auto industry, another automaker is walking away from the gas-guzzling V-8 engine. Nissan is following some other automakers in dropping big V-8 engines from their largest SUVs.

Nissan is jettisoning the 400-hp V-8 that powers the three-row Armada SUV, leaving the low-volume Titan full-size pickup as the only nameplate under the brand with the engine.
