An official debut must not be far away.
Back in July, a spy video emerged online showing the 2020 Nissan Armada roaming the streets, sporting the model's first update since it launched in 2016. Unfortunately, the grainy video quality left a lot to be desired and the footage was also shot at night, so the design details of the car weren't easy to distinguish.
A recent render design based on the model seen in the video gave us a more accurate depiction of what the 2020 Nissan Armada will look like but it was not the real deal. Now, ahead of its debut, photos have emerged online showing the 2020 Nissan Armada practically uncamouflaged, giving us our best look yet at Nissan's new SUV.
Photos published by Almuraba show the 2020 Armada parked outside a car dealership in Dubai nearly completely devoid of camouflage, with only the redesigned front grille covered up. We can see that the front has been given a significant update with restyled headlights and LED daytime running lights and new vertical air intakes. New taillights and a full-length chrome strip have also been added to the rear. Overall, it's a sleek-looking SUV, although the changes remind us of the updated Infiniti QX80.
We also get a look inside the updated cabin, which now features a large touchscreen for the infotainment system and a separate display replacing the analog controls for functions like the air conditioning - much like you would find in an Infiniti. The example that was photographed has been trimmed with red leather.
Technical details haven't been confirmed yet, but we aren't expecting the engine options to change. The current model is offered with a 5.6-liter V8 gasoline engine that sends 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft to either the rear wheels or all-four wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission. No word yet when the 2020 Nissan Armada will break cover, but the revealing photos suggest an official debut is imminent.
