Comparing the Spaciousness of the 2019 Ford Expedition and the 2019 Nissan Armada Lineups 

If you're shopping for an SUV, interior space is likely a top consideration. Though the 2019 Ford Expedition and the 2019 Nissan Armada both feature seating for up to 8 passengers, the space accommodations enjoyed by each passenger varies quite a bit between the two lineups. The Expedition comes through with a staggering 17.4 cubic feet more passenger space than the Armada (171.9 vs 154.5). In fact, the Ford SUV offers more space in just about every dimension. Some variations in space are more noticeable, as the Expedition features 2 inches more front legroom, 3 inches more front hip room, 4.2 inches more second-row hip room, 7.7 inches more third-row legroom and 2.6 inches more third-row hip room than the Armada.

Behind the rear seats, the Expedition packs 19.3 cubic feet of cargo space. That cargo area extends to 57.5 cubic feet with the third row folded and 104.6 cubic feet with the second row folded as well. The cargo accommodations of the Armada aren’t quite as impressive. The Nissan SUV offers 16.5 cubic feet behind the third row, 49.9 cubic feet behind the second row and 95.4 cubic feet behind the first row.
