Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Explorer than in the INFINITI QX50. The Ford Explorer will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the INFINITI QX50.

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 Ford Explorer will have less of an impact on your bank account than the INFINITI QX50.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Explorer is much wider than the INFINITI QX50, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Explorer, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the INFINITI QX50.

Performance
The Ford Explorer has a little more horsepower than the INFINITI QX50.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Explorer transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the INFINITI QX50.

Utility
The Ford Explorer offers greater seating capacity than the INFINITI QX50, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.
