Compare Armada and Pathfinder Engine Specs

Wondering which SUV offers the most power for the price? The 2017 Armada is a full-size SUV with room for up to eight passengers and a powerful engine to match. The standard engine is a 5.6-liter V-8 that produces an impressive 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. However, the smaller engine of the midsize Pathfinder will save you money on fuel. The stadnard engine is a 3.5-liter V-6 that produces 260 horsepower and achieves up to 27 miles per gallon on the highway. With a much lower starting MSRP, drivers on a budget may choose to drive home in a Pathfinder. However, those looking to pack up the family and bring a trailer along for the ride will enjoy the added power and capability that the Armada adds to the mix.

When it comes to interior comfort, you won't miss out, regardless of which SUV you choose. The obviously larger Armada does offer more passenger and cargo space, but the Pathfinder's more economical price doesn't mean sacrificing all your space. Folding rear seats in each vehicle allow for more versatility when it comes to packing up, and available high-tech features in the front allow you to enjoy everything from navigation to rear seat entertainment.
