The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you plan to tow, a 2008 Dodge Durango with a V-8 will work nearly as well as a Tahoe or Expedition, at a lower price. The 2008 Nissan Armada has hunky good looks and a buff V-8 engine, but there are more roomier and more useful options among the big utes.
