2016 Ford Explorer vs. 2015 Infiniti QX50 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Explorer than in the Infiniti QX50. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Ford Explorer and the Infiniti QX50.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Explorer as you will with the Infiniti QX50, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Explorer is somewhat more expensive than the Infiniti QX50. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Ford Explorer will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Infiniti QX50.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Explorer is much wider than the Infiniti QX50, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Explorer, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Infiniti QX50.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Explorer doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Infiniti QX50.

Handling
The Ford Explorer has a larger turning radius than the Infiniti QX50, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Ford Explorer has a little less horsepower than the Infiniti QX50.

Utility
The Ford Explorer offers greater seating capacity than the Infiniti QX50, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Ford Explorer, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Infiniti QX50.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Explorer is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Infiniti QX50.
