Of this group, the 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.
