The 2017 Nissan Murano is a mid-size crossover what will refresh the three previous generations of it. It is expected to be an SUV aimed toward families that is modeled around comfort. Differing from its older models (spanning from 2002-2015), it has been updated with a fresh exterior and interior design along with several mechanical changes. Since it will be an over a year until it is released, all of the details have not been confirmed yet, but based upon pictures, statements from the manufacturer, and conclusions from the previous models, information on the redesign can be provided.
2017 Nissan Murano – Exterior And Interior
As mentioned, the 2017 Nissan Murano has undergone the redesigning of a new exterior and interior. In the inside of the car, there has been a significant decrease in buttons. Some of this is due to the replacement of the multimedia system with a touch screen (similar to the direction they are taking with many of their other vehicles). This display will be located on the instrument panel, so that it can be easily accessible. It is also expected to have Qashqaie brand front seats (like the Nissan Pathfinder). Even though Nissan has not released a lot of information, the information they have released so far points to a more technologically influenced car.The outside of the 2017 Nissan Murano has also been redesigned, however, it has a design that is noticeably similar to the 2015 Nissan Murano. They both seem to share the similar bulky, yet slim design. They both additionally have similar colors and bodies. The manufacturer has stated that the new models will have more advanced aerodynamics which makes the car look more slimmer when compared to the previous model.
2017 Nissan Murano – Engine And Performance
It is believed that the new model Nissan Murano will run on a hybrid engine. This engine will more likely have a 2.4 l capacity or a 2 l four-cylinder CDI engine. Even though the engine is not yet confirmed, it will have to be able to pair with the 2017 Nissan Murano’s CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) automatic transmission. This car is also predicted to create about 260 hp and 243 Lb-ft of torque. If it uses a hybrid engine, it will probably perform with an increased power output. In other words, it will not be one of the fastest cars, but for an SUV, it will go at reasonably fast speeds. To be exact, it will perform about 24-32 mpg. Since it is a 2017 Nissan Murano aimed at families, these speeds will be best performed on highways, cities, and roads. In comparison to the previous model, it will run on the shared 3.5 liter V6. It will also likely run on premium and regular gas.
2017 Nissan Murano – Price And Release Date
The exact date of the release of the new Nissan Murano is not yet confirmed, but it will be coming out sometime in 2016 as a 2017 model. The price is estimated to be from $35,000 – $40,000, but it will ultimately be determined by the type of engine and other design choices. There you got the information you need, have fun!
