2014 Nissan Armada vs. 2014 GMC Acadia Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the GMC Acadia. The Nissan Armada offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the GMC Acadia, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Armada as you will with the GMC Acadia, 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 Nissan Armada is somewhat more expensive than the GMC Acadia. 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 GMC Acadia.

Dimensions
The Nissan Armada is about the same width as the GMC Acadia. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Nissan Armada, which is slightly longer than the GMC Acadia.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Nissan Armada does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the GMC Acadia.

Handling
The Nissan Armada has the same turning radius as the GMC Acadia, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Nissan Armada and the GMC Acadia. The Nissan Armada has less cargo space than the GMC Acadia, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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