2017 Ford Expedition EL vs. 2017 Nissan Armada Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Expedition EL offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Armada, with comparable head- and legroom. The Nissan Armada will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Expedition EL.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Ford Expedition EL, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Armada.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Ford Expedition EL is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Armada. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Expedition EL and the Nissan Armada have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Expedition EL is a little narrower than the Nissan Armada, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Ford Expedition EL, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan Armada.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Expedition EL transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Armada.

Handling
The Ford Expedition EL has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Armada, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Armada is clearly the choice over the Ford Expedition EL for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Expedition EL has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Armada.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Expedition EL and the Nissan Armada. With the Ford Expedition EL, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan Armada.
