Reviewing the Nissan Armada
Posted on November 26, 2020
Nissan offers several crossovers and SUVs in its model lineup to meet the needs of every driver. SUVs continue to grow in popularity due to not only their size but their handling and elevated seat position as well. Being able to see more of the road ahead is never a bad thing.
In terms of space, Nissan makes maximum use of its space in all its vehicles, but one stands out from the rest. The Nissan Armada is the biggest Nissan SUV, offering the ability to fit eight passengers or 2,700 litres of cargo with the seats folded down.
2020 Nissan Armada Models
Starting at $66,000, space does not come cheap in the 2020 Nissan Armada, but there are very few things missing, even in the base model. The Armada is offered in four model configurations: SL, Platinum, Platinum Captains Chairs, and Platinum Reserve. The only difference between the Platinum and Platinum Captains Chairs version is seating capacity.
The base model Armada SL is built with a 5.6-litre V8 engine that provides 3,855 kg of towing capability, which makes it Nissan's most capable SUV, along with its biggest. The Armada is outfitted with a navigation system with 8-inch touchscreen, as well as a Bose premium audio system with 13 speakers. Driver-assist features also come standard, such as intelligent emergency braking and intelligent cruise control.
