The current generation of Nissan’s mid-size crossover has been around since 2015 and, therefore, it is among the oldest models in the class. That’s why various reports are suggesting changes for the next year. The 2024 Nissan Murano is expected to get a full redesign and receive updates and upgrades in various aspects. This should be an evolutionary redesign in some aspects, but also be pretty comprehensive with notable improvements.
Of course, it will get a completely new styling, following the brand’s latest design language. On the other hand, we don’t expect to see bigger changes in terms of dimensions, while the basis for the new model will remain the good-old D platform. Naturally, we are about to see a new interior design, along with new tech and convenience features, while big novelties under the hood are expected as well.
While the officials are still quiet, rumors suggest that the 2024 Nissan Murano is about to arrive late this year, or in early 2024.
2024 Nissan Murano Redesign
As we’ve just mentioned, this redesign is about to bring pretty comprehensive changes. In terms of the mechanics, one of the things that should be mentioned is that the new 2024 Nissan Murano will continue to ride on the good-old D Platform. However, this architecture would receive notable updates, particularly in terms of the chassis and suspension design. All these changes should improve the ride quality, and make this crossover more engaging to drive.
Of course, we also count on big changes in terms of the exterior design. Naturally, the first thing that comes to mind is the styling, but it’s also good to say that we expect no bigger changes in terms of dimensions. The overall size should remain pretty similar, while the wheelbase will probably remain unchanged.
In terms of styling, we presume that the company will implement the brand’s latest design language. So, the front face should come with the latest iteration of the V-motion grille, with a design that looks similar to models like Pathfinder and Rogue. The overall proportions shouldn’t be much different compared to the current model.
Naturally, big changes are expected on the inside as well, considering that the current cabin started to look old. We count on significant improvement regarding build quality and materials, while there are also big expectations in terms of the new tech features. Basically, we expect to see a similar dashboard design as in the Pathfinder, with a similarly designed infotainment screen, digital instrument cluster etc.
In terms of the seating configuration, we expect to see the same layout as in the current model. The 2024 Nissan Murano should remain a five-seater, with two spacious and comfortable rows of seats that both accommodate adults with ease. Also, the cargo area should offer respectable ratings.
2024 Nissan Murano Engines
This aspect of the 2024 Nissan Murano is still a little bit misty. The current model comes with a familiar 3.5-liter turbo-four, which is tuned to 260 horsepower. Of course, this redesign would probably bring some power increase in the case that Nissan keeps this unit. However, some sources speculate about the new powertrain. That could easily be something smaller, a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which is currently good for about 268 horsepower.
One change we definitely expect to see is the transmission. Just like the Pathfinder, the new Murano should come with a 9-speed automatic gearbox, instead of the uninspiring CVT.
This largely depends on the new configurations. If the V6 carries on, we might expect similar ratings to the current model. On the other hand, the turbo-four would probably offer even better efficiency. For reference, the current model returns around 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which is pretty good for a mid-size SUV.
2024 Nissan Murano Release Date and Price
We believe that the 2024 Nissan Murano could arrive already in the last quarter of this year. When it comes to price, we estimate that base models could go around 35.000 dollars.
