TCC’s Bottom Line
There's very little that's fresh or contemporary about the 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe, but they're tough, roomy, straightforward trucks that perform surprisingly well. The 2013 Ford Expedition stands as one of the most accommodating and well-designed of the mega-SUVs, although its styling and features have fallen a bit behind the curve. 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.
