Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Explorer offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the INFINITI QX60, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Ford Explorer and the INFINITI QX60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Explorer as you will with the INFINITI QX60, 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). Whether you pick the Ford Explorer or the INFINITI QX60, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Explorer is much higher than that for the INFINITI QX60.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Explorer is much wider than the INFINITI QX60, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Explorer takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the INFINITI QX60.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Explorer transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the INFINITI QX60.

Performance
With the Ford Explorer, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the INFINITI QX60. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford Explorer and the INFINITI QX60.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Explorer and the INFINITI QX60. The Ford Explorer has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the INFINITI QX60.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Explorer is not as nearly as extensive as that of the INFINITI QX60.
