The Japanese manufacturer has done a pretty impressive job in the last few years in redesigning almost the entire SUV lineup. Still, there are a few more things to be done and the next-generation Murano is one of them. The current generation of this crossover has been around 2014 and it is certainly one of the oldest models in the class. Fortunately, this will change soon, as the new model will arrive in the next year, as the 2024 Nissan Murano, reports say.
We count on lots of novelties and improvements front this redesign. Of course, we will see new aesthetics, but also all kinds of improvements regarding mechanics, technology and overall ride quality. Some sources also talk about the hybrid powertrain, which should become part of the offer.
In any case, the next-generation 2024 Nissan Murano is expected to arrive already in the next year.
2024 Nissan Murano Redesign
A lot of things are expected from the 2024 Nissan Murano. This redesign should bring a lot of novelties and, of course, one of the first things that come to mind is the platform. From what we know so far, we won’t be seeing a completely new one. Instead, the new model will also ride on the well-known D platform.
However, this architecture will get a significant update, just like in the case of Pathfinder. So, these updates should bring new technologies, new powertrain options and similar things. Speaking of the powertrain, one of the things that come to mind is electrification and the latest reports suggest that the new model will be able to accommodate hybrid powertrains.
Of course, we also count on a new suspension setup, which would improve the ride quality. With the new suspension and strengthened chassis, the new model would offer better handling and overall driving experience.
Naturally, this redesign will also bring completely new aesthetics. The current model certainly looks outdated and we have no doubt that the 2024 Nissan Murano will improve significantly in this aspect. We expect that the Japanese manufacturer will implement the new design language, with the front end that has a lot of similarities with the rest of the lineup, with models like Pathfinder or Rogue.
The new model will probably get slightly bigger but the overall shape shouldn’t change too much. We count on a modern crossover shape, with a muscular but also sleek shape, just like the current model.
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2024 Nissan Murano will probably grow in size for a bit. However, that doesn’t mean that the seating configuration will change. This model will remain a two-row SUV, but the bigger size will certainly provide more room for the passengers. The cargo area should offer a little bit more space as well.
On the other hand, we expect that the dashboard and the rest of the cabin aesthetics will be completely different. We expect to see a completely new design, with a lot of inspiration taken from Pathfinder. The new Murano should look way more upscale in this aspect, with nicer materials, more tech and convenience features etc.
2024 Nissan Murano Engines
The current model comes with a good-old 3.5-liter V6 engine that puts out around 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque and while that’s a decent amount of power, the fact is that most rivals use turbo-four engines. Therefore, we might expect something similar from the 2024 Nissan Murano. The company’s 2.0-liter turbo-four with 268 horsepower sounds like a proper choice, especially if the company is willing to replace the current CVT with an automatic transmission, just like it did in the case of Pathfinder.
Also, some sources speculate about the hybrid powertrain. If that’s about to happen, we presume that the company would implement its new ePOWER technology, which uses a little bit different approach compared to most hybrids. In this case, the wheels are powered by electric motors, while the gasoline engine works as a generator and supplies the battery.
2024 Nissan Murano Release Date and Price
We believe that the 2024 Nissan Murano could arrive in the second half of the next year. The current model starts at around 34.000 dollars and we don’t expect to see a significant increase in the next year.
