2015 Nissan Armada vs 2015 Chevy Tahoe
The gentle giants of sport utility vehicles, large scale people-haulers like the 2015 Nissan Armada and 2015 Chevy Tahoe are designed with a specific lifestyle in mind. Their primary purposes include the ability to comfortably accommodate a large number of passengers on a regular basis as well as provide plenty of interior cargo space. Also, because they house such large engines, these heavier duty SUVs are strong, capable choices when it comes to towing something that typically would have required a truck.
Sharing the body structure of the full size Nissan Titan pickup truck, the 2016 Armada offers incredible strength. It’s like having a pickup truck with additional seating and a greater amount of interior space rather than a bed for cargo. Powered by a slightly larger V8 engine, the Nissan Armada is able to tow a couple extra hundred pounds compared to the Chevy Tahoe. Firing up 317 horsepower, the 2016 Armada manages a fuel economy rating of 13 city/19 hwy mpg. While this might not be the most flattering gas mileage rating, due to its large size and strong capability, this is a solid average for efficiency.

2016 Nissan Armada Full Size and Full of Features
When it comes time to talk numbers, the 2016 Nissan Armada stays towards the lower end of the price tag and offers four versions to choose from. The Chevy Tahoe lists three trim levels and becomes increasingly more luxurious while its price also quickly inflates. If it's a more luxurious family vehicle you’re looking for, the top-of-the-line Platinum and Platinum with Platinum Reserve Package Armada introduces a number of luxuries that include favorited features like:
- 20-inch chrome alloy wheels
- Auto-leveling rear air suspension
- 7-inch touchscreen display
- Rear seat DVD entertainment system
Depending on the size of your family or number of people typically within your carpool, there are a variety of seating arrangements available in the 2015 Nissan Armada and Chevy Tahoe. Both are capable of seating up to eight passengers, although the Tahoe oddly enough does awkwardly squeeze in a ninth seat between the driver and co-pilot if need be, but only on its lowest trim level. There also are two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive options, depending on the climate and how much towing realistically is planned on being performed. Drivers learning more about technology and safety specifics or other capabilities and options of the 2015 Nissan Armada are welcomed to come by Glendale Nissan.
