2015 Ford Explorer vs. 2014 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. The Infiniti QX50 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Explorer.

Convenience
The Infiniti QX50 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Explorer, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Explorer will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. The Ford Explorer carries a much lower Destination Charge 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.
