Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the Ford Expedition EL, due to its greater 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
