Full-size SUVs remain an important player in the automotive industry for drivers with big passenger and cargo hauling needs. Two popular picks in this competitive market, the 2019 Nissan Armada and the 2019 Toyota Sequoia continue to amaze with remarkable towing potential and robust V8 muscle. Read on to see which model comes out on top when we stack them against each other.
With its upright profile and distinct styling, the Armada is a definite stand out on the road. A collection of design accents seamlessly blend to offer elements of ruggedness and class. Working up to the premium trims, the model builds on the theme of bold with Chrome cladding and a set of big and lustrous wheels. Other than a mild refresh in 2018, the Sequoia’s styling has gone largely unchanged for the past decade. The carried-over design offers a familiar silhouette and sticks on the traditional side with its overall styling.

The 2019 Nissan Armada’s sleek rounded dashboard comes fitted with a standard 8-inch infotainment system with Nissan Navigation, push-button start and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. A wraparound wood trim elevates the cabin to an upscale atmosphere, while a standard 14-speaker Bose audio system tops off the tech package with excellent sound quality. A fold-flat third-row seat tucks away neatly for optimized cargo storage.
The 2019 Toyota Sequoia’s interior features an upright dashboard with a small embedded infotainment system that pairs with a set of chunky knobs and controls. The setup comes across a bit clumsy with a big and bulky design reminiscent of an old-school pickup.
The Nissan SUV has also proven to be the more reliable option. In the J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 Initial Quality Study, the Armada ranked among the top 10 in its segment. Not only did the Sequoia rank below the Armada – it placed below the industry average at 17th.
