These 2020 Nissan Patrol / Armada Renderings Are 99 Percent Accurate

Last month we caught a glimpse of the facelifted 2020 Nissan Patrol / Armada during a photoshoot in the Middle East.

However, the quality of the video was rather poor so the folks from Kolesa thought to use the footage and another spy photo to render the full-size SUV in all its glory. On sale since 2010, the sixth-generation Nissan Patrol (Y62) is not going to receive an all-new generation despite its age.

The automaker gave it a restyling in 2014 and is now preparing another update for the 2020 model year. Styling-wise, the 2020 Patrol (sold as the Armada in the United States) will adopt updated front and rear ends — just like the 2018 Infiniti QX80 sister vehicle.

At the front, the refreshed Patrol will feature new headlights that remind of the Chevy Tahoe, a higher and wider trapezoidal grille with lots of chrome on it, as well as a redesigned bumper with a more angular appearance. At the rear, the 2020 Patrol will gain new LED taillights united by a chrome strip and a tailgate with a different frame for the license plate. The bumper will adopt a more angular look following the same theme as its front counterpart.

Nissan is likely to keep the engine lineup unchanged which means the 275 hp 4.0-liter V6 and the 400 hp 5.6-liter V8 gasoline engines should carry over, depending on the market. The 428 hp Nismo version is likely to remain available in the Middle East. Expect the 2020 Nissan Patrol / Armada to debut this fall.

    Finally a clean looking ‘normal grille! Front and rear updates both look good.

  • Hot Twink

    Hopefully Nissan won’t neuter the U.S.-spec Armada and this time it will get all the offroad features that the Patrol has.

    The current Armada is stripped of the Patrol’s long-travel suspension, selectable terrain modes, HDC, and electronic locking rear differential.

      yeah, the real one should be able to chase a Land Rover, but no

  • Saverio Castellana

    Will they finally update that dated interior

    0% accurate.

  • DM

    I never liked that headlight shape in the Suburban/Tahoe and I don’t like it here.

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    This needs to be a new model.

    Like the rest of Nissan’s lineup, horribly outdated and uncompetitive.

  • Leconte Dave

    That’s one ugly vehicle

  • Bash

    Wtf is that?

  • Stigasawuswrecks

    99% accurate, 100% ugly.

    • Bo Hanan

      Ugly doesn’t seem a strong enough word.

  • Craig

    I think it’s nice looking. A clean look. Not sure how anyone can think it’s ‘ugly’.

  • MarketAndChurch

    I like it.

  • Jason Miller

    Since they have yet to approve my comment I will try to word it differently to get through. What I said was, I recently saw a brochure for the 2020 Armada and it hasn’t changed.

  • StrangerGP

    The headlights look more like they should be taillights.

  • stelvio

    What’s always been ugly is the D-Pillar. the rest of it is alright

  • Classic Bob

    Hits the US market as a 2021.. It seems the rest of the world gets it first as the Patrol.

  • Shreck

    Looks good hope it comes to Australia.
