2010 Nissan Armada vs. Its Competition

Of this group, the 2010 Nissan Armada is still, to most, the best-looking, and it has a strong V-8, but in most other respects the rivals have it beat.

The Toyota Sequoia became bigger and burlier with the last redesign of the full-size Titan, but it's a bit of a gas-guzzler with either of its V-8 engines.

Ford's Expedition has an especially well-designed interior, though its performance lags other competitors.

GM's full-size SUVs, including the Tahoe, were completely redesigned for 2007 and continue to stand out for their excellent handling and fuel-efficient powertrains, while still being as responsive if not downright powerful.

The Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid might be worth consideration if you just can't get past the fuel economy issue.

The 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe isn't your ordinary Jurassic SUV: it's capable, and the Hybrid edition gets better city fuel economy than most German sedans.
8.2
Truck toughness and a roomy three-row interior make the 2010 Ford Expedition a very well-rounded full-size SUV.
8.0
The 2010 Toyota Sequoia is hardly in sync with the times, but it does offer competitive towing and hauling abilities—along with plenty of interior comforts—for those who need a real truck.
