2016 Nissan Murano, the bold crossover from Nissan will continue with the just released 3rd generation body. Expect color updates (if at all), minor interior updates, minor improvements and engine tuneup/Hybrid introduction at the most. Currently also available as a CrossCabriolet version.
2016 Nissan Murano , redesign?
2016 Nissan Murano will not be a redesign, simply because 2015 is a brand new 3rd gen! Although a lot of sites on the web would love to speculate about a totally new 2016 Nissan Murano, it’s unfair to think that there will be radical changes. A car has a lifecycle when it comes to design, for purpose of cost and sanity! Anyone telling you that a car id due next year when it has just been generation updated, is fooling themselves. The Murano came out this year in it’s new avatar with a brand new “V-Motion” front, new body and fresh new interiors. This third generation body is a modern “state of the art” design. It houses features at par with current standards and is expected to hit the right notes with Nissan followers. Produced in Canton, Mississippi started last year for the 2015 model and is currently available at dealership This car is sure to be overall the same car that goes through 2016 year but minor updates are not ruled out. Read on what they can be… (pictures are for current version, don’t expect things to change “visibly”)
What changes inside the 2016 Nissan Murano?
Once you get over with the stunning new looks of the 2016 Nissan Murano, step inside and a beautiful interior is expected just like the 2015. Updates can center around new fabric and leatherette, and at the most, a few version based software updates to the brilliant new touch based navigation/infotainment system.
The multi display on the odometer info display is uniquely creative with step by step navigation showing up apart from vehicle information and music titles, something you are going to love about this car. The versatile parking system handles multiple camera and has a “objects in motion” radar, that helps you detect moving object which can otherwise go unregistered with comparable systems.[ad code=5]
What will power the 2016 Nissan Murano?
Expect the current 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine for the 2016 Nissan Murano too (American market). Although smaller engine options are available for older generations sold elsewhere, we do not expect them to show up here. We do expect that a 2016 Nissan Murano Hybrid may indeed show up. A more economical 2.4 liter engine hybrid kit can be expected. In it’s current form the 3.5 V6 pushes out an economy of 28 Highway & 21 City (mpg) while producing 260 hp @ 6,000 rpm & 240 lb-ft @ 4,400 rpm. Expecting a retune can be fair on the next model as the engine has not changed from previous generation.
