The family vehicle has changed over the years. From the wagon to the minivan, those looking for more interior space and features everyone could love didn't have a lot of choice.

Today, that's changed. With the advent of 3-row SUVs, you now can have a luxurious driving experience with your family. Two models that prove this are the Nissan Armada and the Infiniti QX80.

Not sure which one will be better for your troupe? Let Buckeye Nissan help, with our head-to-head 2022 Nissan Armada vs. Infiniti QX80 comparison. While both vehicles bring a lot to the roads of Hilliard, Dublin, and Upper Arlington, Ohio, only one can be the perfect match.

Let's find out which model that is.

2022 Armada vs 2022 QX80: Performance

 The Nissan Armada and the Infiniti QX80 have a lot in common under the hood, giving you a powerful drive that is smooth and versatile.

Both are standardly outfitted with a robust 5.6L V8 engine that pumps out 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. This type of power lets you tow up to 8,500 pounds with ease when properly equipped, perfect for taking the boat to the lake-the ultimate family outing.*

Additionally, each model comes standard with a 7-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. An Intelligent 4x4 system is available for both-but this is where the differences show up.

While the QX80 offers multiple driving modes, the Nissan Armada takes it a step further, with the available Snow and Tow/Haul modes. These modes make it easy to tackle-and conquer-those harder driving situations.

Armada vs QX80: Interior Space

Those looking for extra room in their 3-row SUV are going to love the Nissan Armada and the Infiniti QX80.

The 2022 Armada can standardly seat eight, making it the perfect family vehicle for road trips or taking the kiddos and their friends home after a soccer game. The 2022 QX80, on the other hand, can only seat eight when equipped with the available split-bench seat package.

Additionally, there are differences when it comes to seat roominess and cargo. While the Armada offers an interior volume of 171.1 cubic feet, the passenger volume in the QX80 comes in at 152.5 cubic feet.

There's also more space in the front row of the Nissan Armada as well as more cargo room behind the second row of seats. Let's take a look:
