2015 GMC Acadia vs. 2014 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). When looking only at MSRP, the GMC Acadia will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. In this case, the GMC Acadia will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Nissan Armada.

Dimensions
The GMC Acadia is about the same width as the Nissan Armada. The GMC Acadia is slightly shorter than the Nissan Armada, which may make it easier to park.

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 the same turning radius as the Nissan Armada, so they both maneuver the same 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. The GMC Acadia 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 GMC Acadia and the Nissan Armada. The GMC Acadia has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Nissan Armada.

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