2018 Nissan Armada vs 2018 GMC Yukon

In recent years, the full-size SUV class of vehicles has undergone somewhat of a transformation. While off-road capable models are still being produced, luxury features and styling are leading development in this category. The Nissan Armada is one such vehicle that offers a spacious, premium, and comfortable interior, with options for on and off-the-road. We want you to shop informed, so we put together this comparison of two full-size heavyweights. Keep reading for a comparison of the 2018 Nissan Armada vs the 2018 GMC Yukon.
