New Generation Nissan Murano To Launch Next Month
|   Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Nissan will unveil at the New York Auto Show the new generation of the Murano model. The Japanese manufacturer has already prepared a video teaser that betrays the front aspect.

Since last year, Nissan has started a strong offensive in the SUV segment in an attempt to recapture some segments that work with models already at the end of his career. That is why a new generation of the Nissan X-Trail has appeared, followed by the new Qashqai and this month's Juke facelift.


Now, the time has come for changes to the Japanese manufacturer's flagship model: Murano. The new generation SUV with premium accents is expected to make its appearance at the Auto Show in New York, scheduled to open its doors on April 16.

To prepare the public, Nissan has already unveiled the first teaser video of the new Murano. The images reveal the contours of the front headlamps with sharp lines and LED light as a boomerang. The chrome trim is also present.

"As the halo vehicle for Nissan's expanding range of bold crossovers and SUVs, the Murano previews a new Nissan design language for future Nissan production vehicles," stated the carmaker. "Along with its innovative styling, the all-new 2015 Nissan Murano features a spacious, premium interior and advanced, purposeful safety and connective technology."

Nissan has announced, however, that the 4x4 will adopt a new design language that will eventually be available across the board.
Although details about the list of engines were not released, most likely at the Auto Show in New York, the model will be presented with a V6 engine, displacing3.5 liters, and improved to provide 260 horsepower and a torque of 325 Nm. Resources will be managed by a CVT transmission and all-wheel drive system.

When it arrives in Europe, the new Nissan Murano, will be offered with a diesel unit. And here we could be talking about an engine that we know as the 3.0-liter V unit available on the current Navarra model.

"When you see the new Murano, the next Maxima and the future Titan, you will see the improvements we made and the efforts we made to reinforce our organization," declared Jose Munoz, Nissan's North American Chairman, for Automotive News.

The redesigned Murano mid-sized crossover, is seeking to improve its profitability too. Nissan had the least profit last quarter than all other Japanese automakers.
Sales of the Murano fell 14 percent in 2013 compared to 2012, to 44,684 units. Even this February saw Murano sales going down by 13 percent from the same level last year, to 6,077 units.

The company hopes the momentum of the redesigned 2014 Rogue compact crossover that saw showroom floors in November as well as the redesigned 2015 Murano, available this fall, will help bring in more cash.

As a bit of trivia, Nissan is also concerned about environmental protection under the Nissan Green program, not just immediate profit. That is why, it was recognized as an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
