2014 Lexus GX 460 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 Lexus GX 460, 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 Lexus GX 460.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus GX 460 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). The Lexus GX 460 is somewhat more expensive 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 Lexus GX 460 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Nissan Armada.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus GX 460 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 Lexus GX 460, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Armada.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Lexus GX 460 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Nissan Armada.

Handling

Utility
The Lexus GX 460 has less seating than the Nissan Armada, making the Nissan Armada the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Lexus GX 460 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Armada.
