2014 Nissan Armada vs. 2014 Ford Expedition EL Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the Ford Expedition EL. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Expedition EL.

The Nissan Armada is about the same width as the Ford Expedition EL. 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 somewhat higher torque, the Nissan Armada transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than 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.

Utility
