All-New Nissan Murano Coming to NY Auto Show, Won't Get 7-Seater or Convertible Variants

Last year, Nissan told us that a new Murano would go on sale in 2014, but they didn’t say where. With the Detroit and Chicago motor shows completed, we’re left with the New York Auto Show in April and the LA Auto Show in November; if you’re in a hurry to see the SUV, you’ll be pleased to learn that the ball rolled on the former.

The news comes via Edmunds, which also spoke to Nissan officials about the Murano’s replacement. According to Fred Diaz, Nissan North America senior vice president of sales, marketing, parts and service, the exterior of the 2015 Murano “is beautifully styled. The dealers were just foaming at the mouth when I showed them pictures.”

Diaz added that the dealers felt the same about the interior, as “they almost fell out of their seats, they were so excited. So I am excited by it, encouraged by it. They can’t wait to get it.”

Nissan gave us a rough idea of its plans on the next Murano with the Resonance Concept, with Carscoops’ Josh Byrnes using the study along with spy shots of engineering prototypes to render the realistic production version you see here.

There are no plans to expand the range further than the five-seater model, with Nissan spokesperson Dan Bedore telling Edmunds that, “three rows in the Rogue as an option and three rows in the Pathfinder for everything. We don’t need another three-row crossover.” The same applies for the odd-looking Murano Convertible.
