After four years of production, 2019 Nissan Murano will get an update. This popular mid-size crossover has been around for years. The original version came more than 15 years ago, in 2002. So far, we have seen three generations of it. The current version is present since 2014, which means that now is a perfect time for some updates. Of course, the focus will be on the visual appearance.
The testing model of the new version has been spotted already and we can notice some nice visual changes, despite the camouflage. When it comes to other aspects of the crossover, interior design will probably remain the same, but we are expecting new standard features, as well as new color schemes. On the other side, mechanical aspect of the car, including engines, will remain unchanged. Expect 2019 Murano to come this fall.

Just like every facelift, this one will also focus on the exterior changes. The 2019 Nissan Murano is about to come with several changes this will improve car’s visual appeal. As it is natural, most of these novelties will come at the front. The testing model has been spotted already. According to vinyl camouflages, it is easy to conclude which areas will suffer most. At the front, changes will be massive.
The 2019 Nissan Murano will get a completely new front fascia, as well as reshaped grille and headlights. Of course, count on the new bumper as well. It will come with a new design which will include sharper lines, larger air intakes and new for lights design. Other areas will suffer as well. We should see some tweaks on taillights, as well as on the rear bumper. Finally, expect new wheels design and some new exterior colors.

On the inside, changes won’t be so intense. The 2019 Nissan Murano will probably keep the same cabin design as the current model. This means same dashboard layout, which could eventually come with some minor tweaks at the center console. Also, count on new color schemes and maybe even some new trims. Still, the biggest changes should be in terms of new standard equipment. Each trim level will receive some novelties but the biggest news will probably be a new, updated infotainment system, as well as a bunch of new safety systems. The trim level organization will probably remain the same, but each version will come with few new standard features.
2019 Nissan Murano engines
When it comes to powertrain, 2019 Nissan Murano will continue in the same way. The core of this crossover is a familiar 3.5-liter V6 engine. For this occasion, it delivers around 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. This amount of power is enough to provide 0-60 time in about 7.3 seconds, while a top speed goes around 120 miles per hour. Fuel economy is on a decent level as well. In the city, this crossover returns around 21 mpg, while highway consumption goes around 28 miles per gallon. Besides V6 version, there is also a hybrid model in the offer. This version would be a great alternative if you want to save some gas. You won’t sacrifice performances at all since this version has only 10 horses less than V6 model.

There are many great mid-size crossovers around. Some of the most notable are Mazda CX-9, Honda Pilot, Chevy Traverse, VW Atlas and others.
