Photos of the next generation 2015 Nissan Murano have been released. They reveal a stunning crossover which has been completely redesigned using Nissans new design language. The “V-Motion” front end contains boomerang-style headlights we first saw on the 370Z sports car.
In the interior, Nissan sought to simplify things by lowering the instrument cluster and ditching some of the clutter. The new infotainment center contains an eight-inch touch screen and only 10 buttons (down from 25).
The motor is a 3.5-litre V6 and produces 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is 20 percent better than the model it replaces. The Xtronic transmission sends power to the front wheels as standard or all-four wheels if the vehicle is equipped with the all-wheel drive system.
For those stressful trips to the grocery store, the Murano’s four onboard cameras and three radar sensors along with Around the View Monitor & Moving Object Detection technology should make parking an easy task.
The 2015 Murano will hit dealership showrooms this fall.
