Is newer always better? Sometimes it’s easy to assume that an all-new vehicle will have a clear advantage over an older model. But other times, a well-executed vehicle just needs a few updates to stay current.
In the full-size SUV segment, we have one example of each type. First we have the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe, which is fully redesigned this year. Then we have the 2021 Nissan Armada, which dates back to 2010 but has just received new styling, an overhauled interior, more features, and a revised engine. We tested both SUVs so we could see how each approach works out in the real world. Keep reading as we go over how the Armada and Tahoe compare across eight categories — and then name an overall winner.
