The Nissan Murano saw sales surge more than 38 percent in 2016 – setting an all time annual sales record of 86,953 units.

It is offered in a choice of Pearl White, Cayenne Red, Gun Metallic and Magnetic Black with a Graphite interior.

As the halo vehicle for Nissan's wide range of bold crossovers and SUVs, Murano expresses Nissan's advanced design direction – including its V-motion front end, LED signature boomerang lights and the unique "floating" roof. The stunning exterior design carries into the interior, which offers an engaging social lounge feel through features such as the refined instrument panel, low center console, advanced Zero Gravity front and outboard rear seating, and the airy atmosphere created by the large windows and oversized Power Panoramic Moonroof.
Responsive driving is provided by a standard 3.5-liter DOHC V6 connected to an advanced Xtronic transmission. Murano is available in front-wheel drive or Intuitive All-Wheel Drive.
