The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Chevrolet Suburban is a traditional large SUV -- handsome and straightforward in design, purpose, and performance. Rugged good looks and a beefy V-8 powertrain can only get you so far: the 2013 Nissan Armada falls behind the full-size SUV leaders in safety, features, and fuel economy.
