Sales for the 2019 Nissan Murano kick off on December 20th.
At this year’s LA Auto Show, Nissan introduced the refreshed 2019 Murano featuring revised styling and new interior tech. Now, Nissan has announced pricing for its updated crossover before it arrives in US showrooms on December 20th.
Available with a choice of four trims, the 2019 Nissan Murano starts at $31,270 for the Murano S front-wheel-drive model plus a $1,045 destination fee – that’s a slight increase over the equivalent 2018 model, which starts at $31,000. The price goes up to $32,870 with all-wheel-drive.
Moving up the range, the FWD Murano SV costs $34,440, while the AWD variant will set you back $36,040. The Murano SL starts at $39,230 with FWD and $40,830 with AWD, while the range-topping Murano Platinum costs $43,530 with FWD and $45,120 with AWD.
Aesthetically, the facelifted Murano's exterior adds a more pronounced front V-motion grille, redesigned LED headlights and taillights, new LED fog lights, new 18-inch and 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheel designs, and three new exterior colors: Sunset Drift Chromaflair, Mocha Almond Pearl and Deep Blue Pearl.
The interior has also been equipped with new semi-aniline leather-appointed seats with diamond-quilted inserts and contrasting micro-piping trim for the seats, door armrests and center console lid for the Murano Platinum trim. Other changes include three new interior trim finishers: Dark Wood-Tone (Platinum), Light Wood-Tone (SV, SL) and Metallic (S, SV, SL). In addition, all 2019 Murano models feature Nissan's innovative Rear Door Alert and Intelligent Driver Alertness.
No matter which trim you select, every 2019 Nissan Murano is powered by a 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine carried over from the pre-facelifted version, which produces 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque and is paired with an Xtronic transmission. Standard equipment fitted with every model includes an eight-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Murano SL and above grades add standard NissanConnect with Navigation, which now includes Door-to-Door navigation with 3D building graphics and satellite imagery, online POI search and premium traffic information.
If you want more equipment, an optional SV Premium Package is also available with power panoramic moonroof, Bose sound system, and 360-degree camera system. The SL Technology package is another optional extra, which adds the power panoramic moonroof, Traffic Sign Recognition and Safety Shield 360 technology. Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 comes as standard in the Murano Platinum as part of the SL Technology Package and includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist and Rear Automatic Braking.
