We’ve managed to catch an updated 2020 Nissan Armada SUV yet gain. This time, however, the fresh images reveal a lot more than earlier, so we have a pretty clear picture of what’s cooking under the camouflage. First of all, we have to say that the SUV isn’t essentially the Armada but the Patrol sibling. Still, these two share pretty much everything except for the name, so this is what’s going on:
From the outside, the 2020 Armada gets a new, better-looking face with a pair of handsome headlights that are coupled with sharper LED running lamps. There’s also a new and taller grille which seems to be integrated into a redesigned bumper. The front bumper hosts interesting vertical air intakes and some chrome elements around the fog lamps. We have to say that we saw the looks somewhere before, but we won’t give away the Japanese carmaker, simply because we find the SUV very attractive. Anyway, there are a few changes around back as well. In case you don’t see, there are some chromed parts in the rear too; plus, the 2020 Armada features a set of new taillights as well.
There’s something going on inside of the cabin too. As far as we see, the updated 2020 Nissan Armada keeps the dashboard as it’s now. On the other hand, the SUV will get some big infotainment changes. More precisely, the automaker will borrow Infiniti’s dual-screen layout which is a huge improvement for the Armada.
Some earlier reports suggested that the large SUV could make its debut paired with a new V6 engine, but that might not be the case after all. Instead, the manufacturer will most probably keep thing as they are now. Meaning, potential buyers will be able to choose between a 275-hp 4.0-liter V6 and the 400-hp 5.6-liter V8 units coupled with a 7-speed auto gearbox.
Even though the Japanese car manufacturer hasn’t said anything about the debut of the mid-cycle updated SUV, we are pretty sure that the 2020 Nissan Armada won’t skip the opportunity to show its face at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this year.
