The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Nissan Armada pairs good towing performance with a roomy, comfortable interior worthy of a luxury label. Old school is in session: The 2017 Ford Expedition teaches a few lessons to today's crossover SUVs with twin-turbo power, luxury-truck touches, and big towing and hauling numbers.
