Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Tahoe offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Armada, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Tahoe will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Nissan Armada.
