The Armada in its current form has always been one of my favorite big 3-row SUVs sold today for it’s mix of power, cargo capacity, towing capacity, and creature comforts. It’s also one of the best big SUV values you can buy today.

New for 2020 is 22-inch wheel and tire package with 275/50R22 tires. This package is standard on the Platinum Reserve and a $2,250 optiona on the Platinum trim. All 2020 Armada models get heated exterior mirrors as well.

All 2020 Armadas are powered by a 5.6-liter V8 that produces 390-horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque. Towing capacity is an impressive 8,500lbs. 

Pricing for the 2020 Armada Platinum Reserve starts $1,700 higher than the outgoing 2019 models.

Unfortunately, the Stelvio came to U.S. shores in 2017 with a cheap interior and an outdated infotainment system giving it a severe disadvantage over its luxury competitors.

Thankfully, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio has received a significant upgrade for 2020 inside and out, eliminating most of the Stelvio’s shortcomings. Fitting as 2020 marks Alfa Romeo’s 110th birthday.

2020 Dodge Charger Widebody Scat Pack and Hellcat Widebody – Sometimes Less Is More

The 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody continues Dodge’s (and FCA at large) tradition of improving on an already successful model by continually adding small refinements, updates, and new models to keep consumer interest high.

Following that formula, Dodge has added an available Widebody package to the Charger for 2020, successfully making everyone forget that this car is at its very roots almost old enough to have a driver’s license. Combine the fantastic Scat Pack with the stunning looks of the Widebody and you have one of the best muscle cars you can buy today.
