2017 GMC Acadia vs. 2015 Nissan Armada Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the GMC Acadia, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Armada offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the GMC Acadia, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Acadia as you will with the Nissan Armada, 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). Clearly, the GMC Acadia is a better financial choice over the Nissan Armada, when considering MSRP. 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 GMC Acadia will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Nissan Armada.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Acadia is much slimmer than the Nissan Armada, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the GMC Acadia, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Armada.

Drivetrain
The GMC Acadia has much lower torque than the Nissan Armada, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The GMC Acadia has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Armada, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Armada is clearly the choice over the GMC Acadia for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the GMC Acadia and the Nissan Armada.

Utility
The GMC Acadia has less seating than the Nissan Armada, making the Nissan Armada the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The GMC Acadia has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Armada.

Warranty
The GMC Acadia comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Armada.
