TCC’s Bottom Line
For those who need to get work done, but with some style and comfort, practicality still reigns in the 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe. Competitors to the 2009 Nissan Armada offer roomier interiors and better options, but the Armada should be commended for its handsome looks and powerful V-8 engine. The 2009 Toyota Sequoia is a good interpretation of a full-size SUV, but it’s just not in sync with the times.
