2015 Chevy Suburban vs 2015 Nissan Armada
Even in the wake of the growing popularity of crossover and compact SUVs, there remains a need for full-size, 7+ passenger sport utility vehicles for those with large families and large toys. If your recreational time necessitates a multi-passenger ride with truck-body towing capacity, there are still quite a few solid options to choose from. Looking at a new full-size SUV purchase can be daunting—you’re going to be investing substantially more capital than if you were shopping for a compact sedan—so we’ve made the search a little easier to navigate with our 2015 Chevy Suburban vs 2015 Nissan Armada vehicle comparison.
2015 Armada is built on the Nissan Titan’s full-size pickup truck frame, and the SUV also shares its 5.6-liter V8 engine with the standard Titan pickup. 2015 Nissan Armada has a standard 5-speed automatic transmission and comes with a choice of rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. Standard equipment on the Armada includes 18-inch alloy wheels, running boards, rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear climate controls, cloth upholstery, power front seats, adjustable steering wheel and pedals, Bluetooth phone connectivity and an 8-speaker sound system with a CD changer, satellite radio and USB and auxiliary audio input jacks. Despite an impressive maximum towing capacity of 9,000 pounds, fuel economy on the Nissan Armada is disappointingly; at 15 MPG combined, this particular full-size SUV could end up costing you a lot in the long run.
