The 2023 Nissan Murano will arrive next year with no significant changes. If you didn’t know, the current Murano was introduced in 2015, and is still an expressive midsize crossover with a very comfortable cabin.
For 2023, the manufacturer will make some refreshments and Murano will gain new LED exterior lighting, wheels, and better seats support thanks to quilted leather. The most exciting news is that Nissan offers as standard Safety Shield 360 driver assistance system on most models last year. Like the current model, the new one will use Nissan’s familiar 3.5-liter V6 that makes 260 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft of torque.
2023 Nissan Murano Redesign
The 2023 Nissan Murano exterior will mostly remain unchanged. Of course, the manufacturer will make some refreshments here and there, but don’t get too excited. The Nissan Murano is still stylish, featuring the same attractive grille and headlights.
According to Nissan, the new model will introduce a few changes. The most exciting news is a Midnight Edition package that will boost the boring look of this SUV. This package will reportedly add black exterior accents on 20-inch black wheels and illuminated doorsill protectors.
The new 2023 Nissan Murano will get some materials upgrades in the following year. We can expect this SUV to offer more supportive seats, and enough room to fit five passengers. The current variant offers up to 67 cubic feet of cargo space, and we can expect the same with the new one.
As for the technology, every Murano will include an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen, four USB ports, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. If this is not enough, you can go for the top two trims, SL and Platinum. They both come with navigation and an 11-speaker Bose sound system. The Platinum is the most equipped model that has a high level of luxury. This model will include diamond-quilted semi-aniline leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, and a panoramic sunroof.
2023 Nissan Murano Powertrain Specs
The 2023 Nissan Murano will use a familiar 3.5-liter V6 engine that produce 260 hp and 240 lb.-ft of torque. The new model also deploys a continuously variable automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels.
However, you can still add an all-wheel drive on all Murano trims optionally. The current model with the same engine is EPA-rated at 20 miles per gallon city, 28 mpg highway, and 23 combined. Unlike the other models in the same class, the Murano’s towing capacity is stuck at 1,500 pounds, which is far lower than other rivals.
Release Date, Price
Based on Nissan`s previous releases, we can expect the new 2023 Murano sometime in October 2022. As we mentioned, the forthcoming SUV will be another carryover model with minimum changes and updates. Unfortunately, Nissan hasn’t announced pricing yet, but we expect a slight increase.
The current model starts at $33,605 for the base, and it can go up to $47,000. The Murano has many rivals, and the closest ones are the Ford Edge, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chevrolet Blazer, and Honda Passport.
