Comparing the Power and Interior Space of the 2020 Ford Expedition versus the 2020 Nissan Armada Full-Size SUVs

The 2020 Expedition also makes better use of its output with a maximum tow rating of up to 9,300 lbs.

On top of its exceptional engine selection, the Expedition provides 20.9 cubic feet of standard cargo space. The Armada’s storage capacity is less impressive at 16.5 cubic feet of space. And somehow the Expedition still manages to provide a generous amount of space in all three rows with 43.9 inches of front legroom, 41.5 inches of second-row legroom and 36.1 inches of third-row legroom. The Armada provides less legroom from any seat, but the third row is especially cramped with just 28.4 inches of legroom to offer.
