The 2019 Nissan Murano will take a position between Rogue and Pathfinder. It makes it a two-row mid-size crossover excellent for smaller families. Whatsoever, next season we can see a redesign of Murano. Changes will include many accessories, such as Apple Car Play and Android Auto services. Also, Nissan will update its trim levels. Platinum is going to remain one of the most interesting models thanks to equipment installed in it.
Although we still don’t know exact amounts, the 2019 Nissan Murano should be one of the cheapest SUVs in the market. Buyers usually ask why Nissan Murano is cheap? Well, it is company’s strategy to lure more buyers. Also, if we look closely, it is not so affordable, since there are few rivals that cost even less. However, with everything Murano is offering, we can consider it as a bargain.
2019 Nissan Murano Redesign
Changes in the upcoming 2019 Nissan Murano will be modest. But, these are about to refresh the crossover. Revisit of the front fascia can update its look with a new bumper. With it, new headlights are certain, while we are not sure if designers want to update grille. The overall size of the SUV remains the same, as well as for wheels. On the back, refreshed taillights and lower license plate are only notable changes.
Accessories and Interior
Inside the cabin, we will find more upgrades. First of all, 2019 Nissan Murano will come with updated infotainment and audio system. Also, safety is getting some boosts. Services such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will probably be standard. Also, Nissan will offer plenty of additional features for this SUV. Power seats for driver and passengers, leather steering wheel, and power-folding second row are just a few of them. Furthermore, upper trims will upgrade the exterior with various accessories, such as for lights and larger wheels.
2019 Nissan Murano Spy Shots
The 2019 Nissan Murano will bring some refreshed parts. Test mules are on streets and the latest spy photos are showing some interesting changes. For example, LED lights are now futuristic after restyling. Also, their shape up front will remind us on arrows that point to the middle of the front fascia. Lower part is well-hidden, and we suppose there are new fog lights. Also, the new Murano is coming with an eye-catching grille. With all these changes, fans are pretty sure that camouflage is also covering the new front bumper.
2019 Nissan Murano HP and V-6 Specs
The SUV uses a single drivetrain in the US. It is a V-6 unit with a displacement of 3.5-liter. The highlight of the 2019 Nissan Murano driving system will be its transmission. Although the crossover is using a CVT, the special Xtronic system makes it feel like automatic shifting. However, the gearbox keeps the smoothness of the CVT. The combination is good for 260 hp.
Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive mode is optional. The engine is also capable to produce 240 lb-ft of torque. It will probably return 22/29 mpg in city/highway drive, which will make it better than for the current edition of Murano. There is no difference between FWD and AWD modes.
More Hybrids for US Customers
Back in 2016, Nissan had a hybrid version of Murano SUV. However, the company imported only about 500 units and it was a luck to find the vehicle and buy. Whatsoever, now we could see more plug-in variants of the crossover. The 2019 Nissan Murano will borrow the engine from the only 3-row mid-size SUV, Pathfinder. A 2.5-liter supercharged powertrain pairs electric battery to provide a significant boost on the mileage, especially in the city. Furthermore, the Murano would go greener, which will boost its popularity among environmental-friendly buyers.
2019 Nissan Murano Release Date
The 2019 Nissan Murano will debut in the last quarter of 2018. Nevertheless, fans won’t wait for it for too long until it appears in salons. Sales will start soon after the release. According to the latest update, we could hear the confirmation about this info very soon. The 2019 Murano will be available for purchase already in first days of next year.
Good thing is that Nissan is not planning any price change for the base unit. That means Murano will still be one of the cheaper solutions in the mid-size five-seat SUV class. Platinum trim will again top the class with a lot of extra equipment. Buyers won’t feel sorry to add at least $10k to get this version. However, in 2019 season, this model could be packed with more premium features, that will push it closer to $45,000 price tag.
