From the inside, the 2020 Nissan Armada Diesel will look modern. Nissan will introduce slight design changes but seating layout will remain. That means there will be three rows of seats and a room for eight passengers.
The cabin is stylish, even with the base model. However, Platinum trim level comes with the highest possible comfort. Leather seats are standard and the legroom is better. The reason for that is because Platinum model offers seven seats.
For the start, Armada is offering a base 5.6-liter V8 gasoline engine. This engine will gain some fuel economy improvements, but that is not the highlight of the new model.
