2020 Nissan Armada: An Unconventional Choice in a Conventional SUV World

2020 Nissan Armada: An Unconventional Choice in a Conventional SUV World

The large SUV market has steadily gained fans over time as families want larger vehicles that are not minivans. The 2020 Nissan Armada comfortably seats eight passengers and has a luxurious, upscale interior, but it is often overlooked. However, there are more than a few reasons why the 2020 Nissan Armada is the right choice for those searching for a family vehicle in Calgary.


2020 Nissan Armada




The 2020 Nissan Armada comes in three model versions: SL, Platinum (7-passenger and 8-passenger versions), and Platinum Reserve. The introductory model, the SL, starts at $65,898 and combines style, space, and high-end technology. The starting price might be high, but the SL includes such standard features as a Bose premium audio system with 13 speakers, a navigation system with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, and advanced safety features.




The standard safety features on the 2020 Nissan Armada are almost the same across all model versions: intelligent forward collision warning, intelligent backup intervention, rear cross traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, and more. The SL model does not come with blind spot warning or intelligent blind spot intervention, an intelligent rear view monitor, or a lane departure warning system.


Under the Hood


All models of the 2020 Nissan Armada come with an Endurance 5.6-litre DOHC 32-valve V8 engine that provides 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. Delivering enormous power, this engine allows the Armada to tow up to 3,856 kg. This makes the Armada ideal for those who want not only interior cargo space but also the capability to haul additional equipment.


All Nissan Armada models have a 7-speed automatic transmission and All-Mode 4WD for all-weather capability. The V8 engine results in a fuel economy of 17.7 L/100km in the city and 12.9 L/100km on the highway.




The 2020 Nissan Armada is part of a new generation that began with the 2017 model year, and very little change occurred between 2019 and 2020. In 2020 models, heated exterior mirrors now come standard and a new 22-inch Wheel package is optional.


The vehicle offers a classic look and luxurious feel across all model levels. A NissanConnect infotainment system that includes navigation and a 13-speaker Bose audio system is standard for all models, though it lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration for those hoping for simple smartphone connectivity.




The 2020 Nissan Armada is classified as a large SUV, and it is large and in charge at a 2,694 kg curb weight. However, its size does not affect its performance. It handles surprisingly well and features a soft suspension that reduces the feeling of road imperfections, giving the car a very quiet and comfortable ride. While it is not a sports coupe, the Armada has impressive speed for its size, going from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds.


All 2020 Nissan Armada models offer great performance, safety, reliability, and comfort. In particular, the SL model offers great value with what comes standard, and those who want more safety features can add those as a separate upgrade. No matter which model is chosen, all buyers looking for a new large SUV should check out the 2020 Nissan Armada in Calgary. It holds its own in this competitive class.
