TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2016 Chevy Suburban is a capable full-size SUV that can carry up to nine passengers in a refined interior and tow up to 8,300 pounds of family entertainment. The 2015 Nissan Armada has become one of the oldest vehicles in a segment filled with newer, more efficient, higher-tech alternatives.
