2017 Nissan Armada vs 2017 Ford Explorer

A bold and sophisticated stance allows the 2017 Nissan Armada to make a stunning first impression no matter which angle you look at it. Distinctively designed wheels also add to the Armada's stunning exterior design, and ensure that you'll be able to take on whatever terrain your adventure throws your way. In order to help you carry all your stuff, the Armada features available crossbars that help the roof rails haul anything from bikes, skis, kayaks, and anything else your family will need at the lake, the beach, or on the slopes. The Armada also features LED headlights and taillights to illuminate even the darkest of California nights.

On the inside, the Armada boasts three rows of seating, and the ability to fit eight people inside. No more having to worry about taking two vehicles when you and your friends all get together for a weekend away. All that seating space means the Armada is also capable of storing an insane amount of stuff. Fold the second and third-rows of seats to give yourself an astounding 95.1 cubic feet of storage space. All these features are great, but how does the 2017 Armada compare to one of its biggest competitors, the 2017 Ford Explorer? Let's take a look.

Test Drive a 2017 Nissan Armada in Vacaville, CA

We're not trying to say the 2017 Ford Explorer isn't a good vehicle. We think it's great in its own right, and it was definitely an amazing competitor. There were just a few areas where the 2017 Explorer wasn't able to stack up against the 2017 Armada. Extra cargo space as well as room for one extra person make the Armada the ultimate vehicle for road trips of any length. Weekend warriors will love that the Armada is capable of storing all of the supplies that their project will need, and a built-in navigation system means that you'll always know where you're going without having to burn through your phone's battery.
