Do you like to make a splash every time you hit the road? Does turning heads make your day? Is sporting a stylish ride a must for you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the 2020 Nissan Armada Platinum Reserve might be the vehicle for you.
As Nissan themselves put it, the 2020 Nissan Armada Platinum Reserve is “no ordinary Armada.”
So what is the Platinum Reserve trim? It’s all about having the best of the best. Nissan took the already-outstanding Armada, and dialed it up to a 12. Not only does it come with the power (390 horses), safety and drive-assist features, and technological advantages that come standard in the base SV model, but all of the bells and whistles are bolted on to help you feel like a king in your rolling castle.
In the base model of the 2020 Nissan Armada, you get 18″ x 8.0″ aluminum-alloy wheels. Upgrade to the SL trim, and that comes with 20″ x 8.0″ machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels. Sounds good, right? Step up to the Platinum Reserve, and you’ve got 22″ x 8.0″ 14-spoke forged aluminum-alloy wheels that are sure to have you riding in style.
The exterior of the lower-level models already looks sleek and sophisticated, featuring LED daytime running lights, chrome grill and door handles, and heated folding outside mirrors with turn-signal indicators. With the Platinum Reserve package, tack on body-color overfenders, upgraded dark chrome, special exterior badging and a power sliding-glass moonroof. You’ll feel like you stole the Armada made especially for your favorite Instagram influencer.
It’s not just the exterior that’ll have you feeling like royalty. As if the standard lush carpeting and heated front seats weren’t enough, the Platinum Reserve trim also boasts premium two-tone leather seating, a heated steering wheel, special interior badging and an open-pore Wood-tone and Black quartz trim. You’ll wonder why you waited this long to spice up your daily drive.
But wait, there’s more!
Need in-car entertainment to keep your guests/kids/both occupied? The Platinum Reserve features a Tri-Zone Entertainment System with dual 8″ monitors, DVD player, two wireless headphones, and an HDMI input. On a long drive and your passenger’s phone is running out of juice? They can use one of the five USB ports to keep the scrolling going all day long. Ready for the next wave of automated driving assistance? Nissan’s Intelligent Lane Intervention, Intelligent Blind Side Intervention and Intelligent Rear View Mirror technology are all exclusive to the 2020 Armada Platinum Reserve trim.
Of course, if you’re focused on saving the environment, it doesn’t hurt to have an eye on the future with the all-electric 2022 Nissan Ariya.
Now I’m sure you’re wondering what the price difference is, and understandably so. Starting MSRP (for two-wheel drive) is $47,500 for the base SV model, $52,300 for the SL model, $60,930 for the Platinum model and $65,430 for the Platinum Reserve model. Considering all of the extras you get with the latter, that’s a small price to pay to spend your commute riding like a rockstar. Compared favorably to the pricier Infiniti QX80, it pulls out all of the stops while providing undeniable value to the buyer.
If you want the best package of unforgettable features with a price tag that makes competitors nervous, you’d be wise to consider the 2020 Nissan Armada Platinum Reserve.
