2018 Nissan Murano: The Aggressive Front Appeal


It is confirmed that there will be some minor redesigned project for the upcoming 2018 Nissan Murano, changing the appearance of the vehicle just a tad bit. Nissan seem to think that they don’t need to do any work for the new model, considering that they have done quite a major redesigned work back then in 2015. Despite the change, there is nothing wrong with some refreshing touchups. After all, the Murano is quite appealing – having a cosmetic work will only improve the style and look.

Update Plan

As it was mentioned before, Nissan has pimped out the Murano in 2015 with the major styling and they have done some mild and minor updates since then. The crossover has already retained a good style so Nissan doesn’t really have to do anything fancy or extravagant, really.

Although official confirmation about the new 2018 Nissan Murano hasn’t been made just yet (along with the details), it seems that there will be some changes on a certain part. The headlights, the rear and front bumper, the taillights, and the grille may get a small touchup. It is really unclear what the work will be but some of them are surely going to change. What about the interior cabin? Well, it seems that it will also change although not as much as the exterior part. If the interior cabin is going to change, it is most likely about the materials and the addition of technologies and features.


It remains unclear whether Nissan is going to tweak the engine, considering that Murano has already delivered enough power and performance all these years. With V6 engine and 3.5 liter capacity that is delivering 260 hp of power and 240 Nm of torque, the engine is powerful enough. It is possible that Nissan will keep the arrangement for the same engine with front wheel standard driving system and the CVT transmission – the all four wheel driving system is optional.  After all, with Kia Sorento, Honda Pilot, and Ford Edge as the main competitors, Nissan should plan the 2018 Nissan Murano very carefully and thoroughly.

Price and Release Date

It seems that the new Murano is still in the production stage which means that we can expect it to arrive at dealerships by the end of 2017 – around December, maybe. The price tag shouldn’t stray too far from the 2017 model, which means that the base model of 2018 Nissan Murano may be sold at around $31,000 while the higher trim is around $42,500.
