The power under the hood can be felt with every press of the accelerator. You almost never have to worry if you will have enough room to fit your latest purchase from the store. You can feel imbued with a sense of confidence when driving an SUV that is unique to the style, and if you happen to be a part of a family, that confidence includes knowing that you will be able to fit the whole crew inside when it comes time to head over to Grandma Ethel's house. With so many options available to you now, it may not be easy to choose which one may be right for you. We're here to help with a comparison of the 2017 Nissan Armada vs the 2017 Ford Expedition.

More horsepower and towing capacity in the 2017 Armada

Some of the confidence you feel while driving an SUV comes from the power that is at your command. The 2017 Nissan Armada is equipped with an engine that doles out 390 horsepower, which significantly surpasses the 365-horsepower output of the 2017 Ford Expedition. Maybe that is what helps the 2017 Armada have a maximum towing capacity of 8,500 pounds, a number that again exceeds that of the 2017 Expedition by a significant margin.

Both of these vehicles have seating for as many as eight people, which is great for family vacations and camping trips. The Armada, however, makes navigation a standard feature in the base model so you will know where you are headed. That feature is not standard in the 2017 Expedition.

The 2017 Nissan Armada packs more horsepower and towing capacity, all while offering a spacious, comfortable interior for the passengers, making it a great choice if you are looking to truly command the roads.
