The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Chevy Tahoe delivers almost all the towing and hauling capacity of a full-size truck, and seating for up to nine. After rotting on the vine for years, the 2017 Nissan Armada's redesign brings it upscale and makes it competitive with its recently updated truck-based full-size SUV rivals.
