2017 Nissan Armada vs. Its Competition

2017 Nissan Armada, Press Drive, Carmel, California, July 2016
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

Most of the Armada's rivals have been updated recently.

The Ford Expedition has such impressive features as a turbocharged V-6, a continuous-damping suspension, and smart packaging.

The Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon approach fuel efficiency with larger engines with cylinder deactivation and other technologies.

Their packaging isn't as clever as the Ford's, though luxury touches are on par.

The Toyota Sequoia is aging and its interior layout isn't as smart aesthetically or functionally, but it has a strong and charismatic V-8 engine, as well as impressive towing numbers.

Quick Specs
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.
The 2017 Chevy Tahoe delivers almost all the towing and hauling capacity of a full-size truck, and seating for up to nine.
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.
If you've got a lot to haul, the GMC Yukon range is one of the best ways to do it. But if not, consider a crossover that will use much less fuel and be better to drive.
The 2017 Toyota Sequoia hasn't kept up with the times, even for a body-on-frame SUV. Look closely at the competition.
