2015 Nissan Murano At A Glance (Press Release)

At A Glance: 2015 Nissan Murano

The Nissan Murano has always stood out from ordinary crossovers with its refined yet daring and futuristic design. With the introduction of the new third-generation design, Murano kicks it up many notches with its concept car-like styling, premium interior and advanced, purposeful technology.

The magnetic exterior design projects a sense of refined intensity, creating an immediate “wow” response. As the halo vehicle for Nissan’s expanding range of bold crossovers and SUVs, the latest Murano also expresses a new Nissan design direction – including its V-motion front end, LED boomerang lights and the unique “floating” roof.

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 NASA-inspired Zero Gravity front and outboard rear seating, and the airy atmosphere created by the large windows and oversized Power Panoramic Moonroof.

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, and Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System.

Responsive driving is provided by a standard 3.5-liter DOHC V6 connected to an advanced Xtronic transmission. Murano is available in front-wheel drive or Intuitive All-Wheel Drive.

Available safety and security systems include Moving Object Detection (MOD), Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) and Forward Emergency Braking. The new Cross Traffic Alert (CTA) system utilizes radar to detect a moving vehicle behind the Murano approaching from either side of the parking space.

The 2015 Murano is set for a late 2014 arrival at Nissan dealers nationwide.
