The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Nissan Armada has hunky good looks and a buff V-8 engine, but there are more roomier and more useful options among the big utes. The 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe stands out as a stylish, accomplished, and usable full-size sport utility vehicle.
