The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Nissan Armada has become one of the oldest vehicles in a segment filled with newer, more efficient, higher-tech alternatives. The 2015 Ford Expedition isn't totally new, but the much-needed refresh gives it heady twin-turbo power and a slick-riding adaptive suspension.
