Nissan Murano is a mid-size crossover, which was originally launched in 2002. During this period, we have seen three generations of it. The original model was produced between 2002 and 2007, while second generation was available between 2007 and 2014. Last year, new model finally came. The third-generation model came as 2015 year model and although it is still very fresh, company already works on some modifications, which should be ready for mid-cycle refresh. These changes include several exterior and interior updates but also some mechanical changes. This refreshed model is expected to come as 2017 Nissan Murano.
2017 Nissan Murano specs
The third generation of this mid-size crossover came last year. New model is completely redesigned. It features completely new look, which is completely adapted to the company’s new design language. For now, we can only imagine what modification will be made on 2017 Nissan Murano. It is expected that this refreshed model will come with update front fascia and maybe with some additional, but not so big, changes. If you look closely inside the cabin of new model, it is clear that 2017 Murano won’t feature too many novelties. Current model features very stylish interior which is made of hi-quality materials and which is equipped with the latest versions of various hi-tech features. We can only expect some minor modifications, so new model could come only with some tweaks on dashboard or eventually with larger touchscreen and updated infotainment system.
2017 Nissan Murano engine
When it is about standard version, 2017 Nissan Murano will come pretty much unchanged. It will be powered by the same 3.5 liter V6 that is good for 260 hp. Beside standard version, we expect to see hybrid model in near future also. This model is powered by configuration which is consisted of 2.5 liter 4-cylinder engine and 15kW electric motor and total output is around 250 horsepower. Both options will use the same, new 6-speed Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
2017 Nissan Murano release date and price
The 2017 Nissan Murano is expected to come next year. Price shouldn’t be much different, so it will go probably between 35.000 and 42.000 dollars.
