Which should you buy, 2019 or 2020? 2019. With no significant changes aside from the 22-inch wheels and tires, a heavily discounted 2019 model would likely be the better deal.
The biggest change for 2020 is a new 22-inch wheel-and-tire package that comes with 8-inch-wide aluminum-alloy wheels and 275/50R22 tires. The package is standard on Platinum Reserve models and a $2,250 option on Platinum models. Base prices on the Platinum Reserve models (technically option packages) jump by $1,700.
The only other announced change is that base SV models gain standard heated outside mirrors.
All versions come with a 390-horsepower, 5.6-liter V-8, seven-speed automatic transmission, a choice of rear- or four-wheel drive and standard towing capacity of 8,500 pounds. Seats for eight are standard on the SV, SL and Platinum. Two second-row bucket seats are optional on the SL and Platinum, and standard on the Platinum Reserve, for seven-occupant capacity.
The Armada boasts some impressive numbers, such as the horsepower, the towing capability and 95.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the second- and third-row seats folded. It also has snug third-row seating, and there’s surprisingly little space behind the last row for such a big SUV; the cargo-loading height also is steep.
If you need this kind of size and brawn, the Armada is worth a look, but be sure to check out some of its rivals, too.
