TCC’s Bottom Line
For those who have to haul people and tow, the 2011 Ford Expedition provides truck toughness in a well-rounded wagon. Rugged good looks and a strong powertrain make the 2011 Nissan Armada desirable, but compared to other large SUVs its lacking in most other respects. The 2011 Toyota Sequoia offers good towing ability, powerful V-8 engines, and a macho, over-the-top look, though in most other respects its hard to make a practical case.
