The all-new 2020 Nissan Murano will hit the roads once again, this time with significant upgrades. Murano will remain to be a 5-seat mid-size SUV with an attractive design and upscale interior. Comfort is good and the cabin offers plenty of novelties. Under the hood, Nissan still offers the same V6 engine. Murano is larger than Nissan Rogue and smaller than the Pathfinder.
There will be four trim levels, each of them offers AWD system and CVT transmission. Murano is also known for its great safety rating. For 2020, Murano will also look sharper and striking. As for the pricing details, this mid-size SUV could get a small jump in price.
2020 Nissan Murano Design
After the newest spy shots, some things are clearer now. New 2020 Nissan Murano will get major changes. As a result, this SUV will look more handsome and attractive. Design is sharper, especially upfront. Headlights are revised and LED running lights are all-new. Arrow-Shaped running lights are looking really impressive.
The new trapezoidal lower fascia is interesting innovation and rear end will host small visual updates only. However, heavier camouflage over the taillights is suggesting something brand-new. To the sides, Murano will now deliver a cleaner look and floating roof will remain. 18-inch alloy wheels are still present and new 20-inch optional wheels are speculation for now.
Interior Enhancement and Cargo Space
Nissan will also try to improve the comfort from the inside. The upcoming 2020 Nissan Murano will introduce new upholstery and more high-quality materials. The cabin already looks modern and that will be additionally improved for 2020. Seats are very supportive and there will be room for five passengers. The two-row seating layout will largely remain, just like the rest of the interior layout. A 7-inch touchscreen comes as standard and infotainment system will get an important update.
Dual-zone climate control, push-button start and telescoping steering wheel are standard too. When it comes to optional equipment, there will be a tone of them. For example, leather upholstery, panoramic sunroof, and Bose audio system are optional. Interior space is generous and cargo area is rated at 30 cubic feet. Folding the rear seats flat will open up to 70 cubics.
2020 Nissan Murano Powertrain
According to reliable reports, the upcoming 2020 Nissan Murano will offer the same engine option. It is a 3.5-liter V6 that can produce up to 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. A CVT transmission is available and it acts very quietly and smooth. Knowing that Murano will once again deliver amazing ride quality. This SUV will remain a front-wheel-drive vehicle.
However, Nissan offers an optional all-wheel-drive system. Some fans are obviously disappointed with Murano’s single engine option. There are no words about the optional powertrain. Current engine delivers 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. On top of that, those figures will carryover in 2020.
Price and Release Date
The brand-new 2020 Nissan Murano will start at around $31,500. SL trim level will cost $40,000 and Platinum models are available for $45,000. Nissan will release its new crossover in the last quarter of 2019. In the same time, we can expect the release of the 2020 Nissan Pathfinder model.
