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.
