Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the Lincoln Nautilus, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Armada will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln Nautilus.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln Nautilus as you will with the Nissan Armada, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Lincoln Nautilus will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Armada. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lincoln Nautilus carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Nissan Armada.

Since the Lincoln Nautilus is much slimmer than the Nissan Armada, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lincoln Nautilus, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Armada.

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

In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Armada is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Nautilus for pulling heavy loads. The Lincoln Nautilus has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Armada.

The Lincoln Nautilus has much lower torque than the Nissan Armada, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Soccer Moms beware - the Lincoln Nautilus seats a lot fewer people than the Nissan Armada. The Lincoln Nautilus has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Armada.

You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lincoln Nautilus than that of the Nissan Armada.
