First up on our Drive to Compare list is the Ford Explorer. Down by one seat, the Ford Explorer only offers seating up to seven passengers, while the Nissan Armada provides space for up to eight. The biggest difference between these two SUV models lies in their powertrains. The Nissan Armada is powered by the 5.6L DOHC V8 engine, which supplies an ample 400 horsepower and 413 lb.-ft. of pure torque combined with a 7-speed automatic transmission with Downshift Rev Matching. The Ford Explorer falls short with its standard 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4 engine that delivers 300 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. The Nissan Armada can also handle more weight when it comes to towing, with up to 8,500 lbs. of maximum towing capacity.
