After over 10 years of bold, stand out style, Nissan is launching a fully made over Murano for 2015 that makes as strong of a statement as its predecessors.
“Murano owners live in an environment – home, work and car – that is beautiful, well-designed and efficiently run. They are social and embrace technology,” said Andy Palmer, Executive Vice President, Chief Planning Officer (CPLO) of Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. “The new Murano had to embrace all of these values, while also taking a major leap forward in terms of its ‘Wow’ factor.”
Front to back, Nissan changed the crossover. The outside features a new “V-Motion” grille, floating roof design, a panoramic moonroof and boomerang-like headlights and taillights.
Nissan left little tradition on the inside of the 2015 Murano. The Japanese automaker is offering heated and cooled front seats, to start, as well as a heated multi-function steering wheel, advanced 7-inch driver’s assist display in the gauge cluster, another available multi-touch center console command center screen, intelligent key with remote start and smart climate, and an around view monitor with moving object detection.
Safety technology for the Murano includes blind spot warning, predictive forward collision warning, forward emergency braking, intelligent cruise control and intuitive all wheel drive.
Power for the Murano comes from a 3.5-liter V6 that puts out 260hp. The crossover is also lighter than its predecessor and 20% more fuel efficient.
More details will become available closer to the release date, and Nissan is happy to e-mail them to you via a link on their website.
