What's New in the 2020 Nissan Armada?

The Armada carries over for 2020 pretty much unchanged, save for the addition of standard heated side-view mirrors and a new 22-in wheel package.

Which Armada is the Best?

Given its age and lack of overall efficiency -- not to mention its dated infotainment setup, which lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto -- the main thing that differentiates the Armada from the competition is its price. Segment favorites like the Expedition, the Chevy Tahoe, the Chevy Suburban and the GMC Yukon surpass it in most areas, but buyers should be able to find a better deal on a new Armada than on any of those SUVs, and that levels the playing field.

If you're put off by the mainstream nature and possible unreliability of the big American SUVs, you'll likely appreciate the niche status and general reliability of the Armada. We generally recommend considering a middle-of-the-pack trim level, which in the Armada's case would be the SL model. But if it's luxury features you're after, look toward the Platinum -- or just head to your Infiniti dealer and pick up a QX80. Find a Nissan NV200 for sale

How Much Does a 2020 Nissan Armada Cost?

The 2020 Nissan Armada follows Nissan's established four-tier trim structure.

The SV ($48,495 RWD, $51,495 AWD) has heated front seats, a fold-flat third-row seat, a push-button ignition, four 12-volt power points, automatic dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, an 8-in touchscreen, a navigation system, a 13-speaker Bose audio system and, new in 2020, standard heated side-view mirrors. Available options include a power liftgate, a power folding third-row seat, fog lights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and remote keyless entry. Standard driver-assistance features include forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and rear door alert, which lets you know if you've forgotten about precious cargo in the back seat. An optional Driver Package adds the fog lights, the power liftgate, the power folding third row and trailer prep wiring.

The SL ($53,295 RWD, $56,295 AWD) adds to the SV's standard and optional equipment leather seating, front and rear parking sensors, remote start, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, rain-sensing wipers and a 360-degree Around View cameras with moving object detection. Available options are bundled into the Premium Package and include a power moonroof, Nissan's Distance Control Assist, a blind spot monitoring system and a backup-collision intervention system.

The Platinum ($61,925 RWD, $64,925 AWD) includes all of the SL's features and options plus heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, an I-RVM intelligent rearview mirror, a front-wiper deicer, leather door trim, Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention, lane-departure warning and intervention and a rear-seat family entertainment system with dual 7-in headrest monitors, two wireless headphones and a DVD player. The only available option is second-row captain's chairs, which cuts total seating from eight to seven.

The Platinum Reserve ($65,925 RWD, $69,425 AWD) trim adds a dark chrome exterior trim, 20-in dark chrome wheels, two-tone leather-appointed seats and a Black Quartz and premium wood interior trim.

Is the 2020 Nissan Armada a Safe Car?

The Armada comes standard with forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. A rear door alert system reminds drivers to check the rear seat if the system detects that the rear doors were opened prior to driving but not again at the end of the trip. (It's intended to keep parents and guardians from forgetting about sleeping children in the back seat.) Other standard safety features include anti-lock brakes, electronic traction and stability control plus front, front-side-impact and side-curtain airbags.

In crash tests performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Armada scored 3 stars in the front-end crash test, 5 stars in the side-impact test and 3 stars in the rollover test for an overall 4-star rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not crash-tested the current-generation Nissan Armada.
