2020 Nissan Armada Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

We take the 2020 Nissan Armada Platinum Reserve AWD for a test drive and check out the interior, exterior and trunk space.

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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
