Nissan dealers across the country have something a little extra to dress up their showrooms this December beyond the usual oversized red bows and ribbons – the all-new 2015 Nissan Murano. The halo vehicle for Nissan's expanding range of bold crossovers and SUVs, the bold new Murano design projects a sense of refined intensity, creating an immediate "wow" response.
"Nissan dealers have been clamoring for the new Murano ever since the design was previewed in the futuristic Nissan Resonance Concept," said Derrick Hatami, vice president, Sales - U.S., Nissan North America, Inc. "Now that Murano has arrived in their showrooms, there's another great reason to celebrate the holiday season."
The 2015 Murano is offered in four trim levels – S, SV, SL and Platinum – and in a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The starting Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the Murano S FWD is $29,560 USD, while the top-of-the-line Murano Platinum AWD is priced at $40,600 USD (full pricing is available at NissanNews.com).
Every 2015 Murano comes with a standard 260-horsepower 3.5-liter DOHC V6 connected to an advanced Xtronic transmission. Fuel economy has increased 20 percent for combined mpg from the previous generation and is rated at 21/28/24 mpg city/highway/combined for both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models.
Murano's new magnetic exterior design includes its dramatic V-motion front end, LED boomerang lights and the unique floating roof – which utilizes prominent glass areas and D-pillars that appear disconnected from the roof that help visually lighten the cabin appearance. The sleek, aerodynamic styling offers a low coefficient of drag of just 0.31, without compromising cargo or passenger space. LED Signature lights and LED taillights are standard on all 2015 Murano models.
The breakthrough exterior design carries into the interior, which offers an engaging social lounge feel through features such as the refined instrument panel, low center console, advanced Zero Gravity front and outboard rear seating, and the airy atmosphere created by the large windows and oversized Power Panoramic Moonroof.
The Murano interior offers best-in-class** total interior volume of 147.7 cubic feet and best-in-class cargo** volume (with seats up) of 39.6 cubic feet.
Available technology features include NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps, 8-inch color display with multi-touch control, Around View® Monitor, 8-way power driver's seat with power lumbar support, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately), Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition, iPod® interface, 11-speaker Bose® premium audio system (including dual subwoofers), and Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System with streaming audio.
Available safety and security systems include Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD), Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) and a new Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) system that utilizes radar sensors (located in the rear) that can help warn you while backing up of a moving vehicle you may not see approaching from either side.
