The numbers say it all in the competition between the 2021 Ford Expedition and the 2021 Nissan Armada. Not only is the Ford Expedition notably more fuel-efficient, but it also offers more interior space and delivers a more comfortable ride from its independent rear suspension.
With 171.9 cubic feet of passenger space, the cabin of the 2021 Ford Expedition is tailor-made for family life. The difference is most notable in the third-row seats, where the Expedition offers 36.1 inches of legroom. In the Armada, rear-seat legroom measures just 28.4 inches.
