New 2015 Nissan Murano on Sale Dec 5 from $29,560*

Nissan took advantage of the LA Auto Show to supposedly debut the all-new 2015 Murano in full production trim (we see no differences over the NY Show model) and to announce pricing.

The third generation Murano will go on sale in the USA on December 5 with prices starting from $29,560, not including an $885 destination and handling fee (*), which represents a $1,030 increase over the outgoing model.

Power comes from a standard 3.5-liter V6 rated for 260hp and 240 lb-ft paired to a new Xtronic continually variable transmission driving either the front or optionally, all four wheels

Nissan recently started production of the 2015 Murano at its Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant in Mississippi, marking the first time that the Murano is built here in the States.

    A bit awkward styling here and there, and proportionally it’s a bit skewed but some of the cues could work absolutely wonderfully on a small sportscar – excited to see what Nissan does next.

    • yes! agreed, these cues would look great on a small sportscar.

      The back is what is so ugly that hump part where the window is or should be. Other wise I think it looks ok for a Nissan – though I don’t really get Nissans design language, to me all their cars except the Z , look like puffer fish…feel the tingle

    Ugly, but at least it’s unique.

    Hmmmm….a few well placed Renault badges and this could really work for Europe…albeit with a diesel.

    Can you say “overstyled”?

    • An Existing Person

      Not overstyled, just futuristic. They’re setting the standards for crossovers, and future SUV’s. Trying to be different from the box shapes nowadays.

  • Nik

    WOW!!! its looks awesome!!! For that car – price is very good

  • Jānis

    Indeed, this reminds me of some strange Renault design. It’s trying too much. Not my cup of tea. Sorry.
