The updated Armada, which starts sales next year as a 2021 model, benefits from bold new styling on the outside and some much-needed tech updates inside.
The front of the SUV features updated LED headlights, the Armada’s grille is also taller and integrated into a new-look front fascia. Around back, the taillights and lower fascia have been reshaped, and there’s now a chrome strip running the width of the rear.
Inside, the center stack has been thoroughly updated and is dominated by a 12.3-inch touchscreen display serving as the infotainment hub & a 7.0-inch screen serves as the instrument cluster.
There are still physical controls for frequently used items like the audio and climate settings. WiFi, Apple CarPlay and wireless charging for mobile devices are all offered as well.
A long list of electronic driver-assist features are also on offer, either as standard or available. In addition to the usual safety features, there’s also the handy Trailer Brake Controller designed for towing. It automatically slows the vehicle when it senses sway.
Armada comes exclusively with a 5.6-liter V-8 delivering 400 horsepower and 413(560Nm) pound-feet of torque. Also forming part of the package is a 7-speed automatic. Rear-wheel drive is standard and four-wheel drive (with high and low modes) is available for those who need it. Maximum towing capacity is a claimed 8,500 pounds for both drivetrain setups.
Pricing information for the 2021 Armada will be announced closer to the market launch.
