2020 Nissan Armada vs. 2019 Ford Expedition
KEY ARMADA ADVANTAGES
- Standard Intelligent Key (vs. available) – Every Armada comes equipped with Nissan Intelligent Key®, which eliminates the need to use the remote keyless entry when locking or unlocking the doors, or the ignition key to start the engine. This feature is an extra-cost option on Expedition’s lower trim levels.
- Available Intelligent Rear View Mirror1 (I-RVM) – An available LCD screen in the rearview mirror can display the image from the rearview camera, providing the driver an unobstructed view to the rear of the vehicle.
