The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

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.
