2020 Nissan Armada review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Nissan Armada?

The 2020 Nissan Armada is a full-size SUV that seats up to eight people in three rows. It comes standard with a 390-horsepower, 5.6-liter V-8 engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission. It’s available with either rear- or four-wheel drive, and competitors include the Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon, Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia.

What’s New on the 2020 Nissan Armada?

Heated side mirrors are now standard, and a newly available 22-inch wheel package features 14-spoke forged-aluminum wheels and all-season tires.

What Features in the 2020 Nissan Armada Are Most Important?

The Armada offers second-row captain’s chairs in place of a bench seat. The captain’s chairs decrease seating capacity from eight to seven. The Armada’s 8,500-pound maximum towing capacity should be able to handle most trailers a family will want to pull.

Premium available features include a power liftgate, a dual-screen rear entertainment system, a power-adjustable steering column, a 360-degree camera system and a power-folding third-row seat. Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are standard, and active safety options include blind spot warning and lane departure warning.

Should I Buy the 2020 Nissan Armada?

The Armada delivers a commanding driving position and roomy second row, but like some other non-long-wheelbase full-size SUVs, its third-row seat is snug and there’s not a lot of cargo room behind it. It also takes a big lift to clear the rear bumper when loading luggage.

2020 Armada lemon

Bought my Armada from Nissan of Bradenton of Florida ( do not recommend this dealership) supposed to have been certified, it was not. Had a oil leak in the first few months. After 3 1/2 monthes it came down with a battery/computer issue that had to have towed back to the dealership and spend $500 for an upgrade which was on a Nissan service bulletin handbook. Been going back and forth with Bradenton dealership for 2 months now, they just blow me off. Terrible people and service with no customer care. Would no buy again!


7k miles, and 9 days taught us to love the Armada!

Back in April 2022, I rented a 2021 black/chrome Armada SV from a local rental agency for my wife, 13-year-old daughter, and I to drive from Reno, NV to Prestonsburg, KY. A distance of nearly 2,300 miles one way, but we wound up putting nearly 7k miles on the car during the 9 days we had it. We had actually ordered a mini-van for the trip, but the person returning the mini-van the day before we were to take possession of it had accidentally broke the rear window. Therefore, the only large vehicle left was the Armada. Initially we were unhappy with this choice as the cost of gas was way up at this point, and I knew the Armada had terrible gas mileage! It advertised 19 MPG on the highway! However, my family fell in love with the voluminous interior, great driver seating position, leather interior, and amazing power! My wife has a long history of back issues and she had never been on a car ride of this length without suffering some pain, but she really did not feel any discomfort in the Armada. With the normally aspirated V8, putting out 400 HP the Armada felt very powerful, and prompt at delivering all the power needed for the moment. We typically cruised for many miles at an average speed of 80 MPH, and never felt the least sense of unsteadiness, or untoward behavior from this 4-wheel drive vehicle. Our actual MPG ended up averaging 16 MPG, but despite that both my wife and I are determined to buy our own Armada soon!


Loving my new Armada

Still learning everything about it but love all the safety features. Great sound system and calling system. Has alot of get up and go and low road noise.
