The 2014 New York Auto Show kicks off this week, and the all-new vehicle reveals have begun.
Nissan has trotted out the refreshed 2015 Murano, sporting new looks and a revised interior, though staying the same mechanically. The most dramatic differences come to the front end where the Murano has adopted new ‘LED boomerang lights’ along with Nissan’s corporate front fascia, known as ‘V-motion.’
On the inside, Nissan has lowered the height of the instrument panel, widened the size of the center console and updated the seats, along with eliminating 60 percent of the switches for audio and navigation. For technology, the Murano packs NissanConnect infotainment displayed with an 8-inch color touchscreen along with an 11-speaker Bose sound system.

Under the hood, the same 3.5-liter V6 resides as the previous generation, still hooked up to a CVT and making 260 hp. Front-wheel drive comes standard, though all-wheel drive is an available option. The 2015 model is 130 pounds lighter than its predecessor, and also packs engine and transmission tweaks which are said to improve fuel economy by 20 percent. The 2014 Murano is pegged at 20 mpg combined.
This 2015 Murano will hit showrooms in late spring. Watch for live coverage here on AutoGuide from the New York Auto Show floor.
