This is more or less what we’ll get very soon.
Earlier this month, we saw new spy shots of the 2020 Nissan Patrol. Now the company has officially launched the model in the Middle East, and from there it will go on sale in other global markets. Don’t be fooled by the name — long-time followers of Nissan’s SUV tactics will know this is, for all intents and purposes, the revised Nissan Armada. Now, the Armada was largely redesigned three years ago, so this is not a radical shift from the current norm.
The 2020 Nissan Patrol will go on sale in the Middle Easy by the end of September.
What has changed with this model is the front-end design. Nissan’s V-Motion grille is much more pronounced, and the new Patrol sports new daytime running light design. As you’d expect, the front end is similar to the revamped Nissan Titan, which will debut on Thursday, September 26. Around the back, the 2020 Nissan Patrol also gets a restyled rear end, complete with new LED taillights.
Inside, the 2020 Nissan Patrol gets a dual-screen treatment, while the rest of the interior looks fairly similar to the outgoing model. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available, which is a good sign for the new Armada. The instrument cluster looks pretty close to the current model, but the updates to the center stack help bring this three-row SUV up-to-date.
Under the hood, Middle Eastern buyers have the option of a 4.0-liter V6 or the 5.6-liter Endurance V8. We only have the V8 now, and that situation likely won’t change in this updated model. Power on the V8 has gone up to 400 horsepower from 390. Torque is also up, from 394 lb-ft to 413 lb-ft. In other words, it’s exactly the same figures as the Infiniti QX80, which is a good sign for the Armada as well as the updated Titan.
Nissan has not confirmed this exact truck is the new Armada yet. However, we’re confident that it will only see minor changes for the U.S. market, but it will be extremely close to what we see here.
