2017 Nissan Armada vs. 2017 Ford Expedition EL Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Nissan Armada offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Ford Expedition EL, with comparable head- and legroom. The Nissan Armada will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Expedition EL.

Convenience
With the Ford Expedition EL, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Armada, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Nissan Armada will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Expedition EL. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Nissan Armada will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Ford Expedition EL.

Dimensions
The Nissan Armada is a little wider than the Ford Expedition EL, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Nissan Armada, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Expedition EL.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Nissan Armada doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Expedition EL.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Nissan Armada is clearly the choice over the Ford Expedition EL for pulling heavy loads. The Nissan Armada has a little more horsepower than the Ford Expedition EL.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Nissan Armada and the Ford Expedition EL. The Nissan Armada has significantly less cargo capacity than the Ford Expedition EL.

Warranty
The Nissan Armada comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Expedition EL.
