2017 Nissan Armada vs. 2017 Toyota Sequoia

Life is big, and it can be difficult to contain at times. If you are looking at moving into the world of sport utility vehicles, chances are good that you are either big in spirit or big in family. As such, you are in need of a vehicle that can fit as much of your full life as possible inside of it. SUVs are a great option for this, particularly full-size models, which offer more seating and cargo room than sedans while giving you a commanding seat height and a powerful engine at your fingertips. Whether you are loading the family up for a vacation to the cabin or taking a canoeing trip up there on your own, an SUV can safely and reliably get you and everyone (or everything) there comfortably. A lot of SUVs are out on the market vying for your attention these days, so it is important to know some key specifications about each one. We’re here to help with a comparison of the 2017 Nissan Armada vs the 2017 Toyota Sequoia.

2017 Nissan Armada Horsepower & Fuel Economy


A bigger vehicle which is expected to carry a bigger load needs a strong engine to make it possible. The 5.6-liter V8 engine under the hood of the 2017 Nissan Armada delivers a mighty 390 horsepower. The 2017 Toyota Sequoia falls shy of that with its 381-horsepower engine. A full-size SUV may not get the same fuel economy as its smaller crossover cousins, but you still want to use every drop of fuel to its fullest. The 2017 Armada gets an estimated 14 city and 19 highway miles per gallon, again edging out the 2017 Sequoia, which gets 13 city and 17 highway miles per gallon.

Speaking of the highway, if you are looking to head out on a lengthy road trip and want to tow a trailer or a boat behind you, the 2017 Armada allows for a maximum of 8,500 pounds for that. The 2017 Sequoia, on the other hand, offers 7,400 pounds of maximum towing. That’s a difference of 1,100 pounds. Imagine what you could bring (or what you would have to leave behind) at that weight. The numbers here speak for themselves. If you want to captain a powerful vessel for your busy life, the 2017 Nissan Armada has you covered.
