2016 Nissan Murano Release Date, Review, Price, Specs – The forthcoming new Murano has undergone significant changes to its vital components and will certainly address any issues in the previous model. Nissan is by far one of the automobile’s which provides something everyone is looking for, which makes them one of the most trusted automobile brands globally.
The upcoming new 2016 Nissan Murano will certainly set the pace in terms of manufacturing and designing. It is a comfortable family car, with the capability of comfortably accommodating up to five adults. Also, it is stylish and modern, and only the exquisite materials have been employed.
Some of the major looks that you should anticipate in the new-look Murano include a nicer interior, improved fuel economy and sleek new styling. The Murano was impressive ever since it made a debut way back in 2003. It is one of the crossover SUV that is credited for standing high on stylish looks, better handling and power characteristics and a spacious five-passenger seating configuration.
Since then, dozens of other SUVs have followed suit. With the larger crowd came challenges for the vehicle, however, it still stands out as the crossover you wouldn’t want to miss out on. There still exists plenty of practicality in the new Murano despite the stiff competition, which includes the Ford Edge, Kia Sorento, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Journey models respectively. Below is a well-detailed review on what we think will be provided alongside the 2016 Nissan Murano.

We don’t expect Nissan to change the trim levels. With this in mind, expect base S, SV, SL and Platinum models to be made available.
Standard equipment which you should expect in the base Murano will include 18-inch alloy wheels, 60/40 split-folding rear seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, cruise control and dual-zone automatic climate control. Electronics and entertainment features include a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, smartphone app integration, a rearview camera and a six-speaker sound system with a satellite radio, CD player and an auxiliary input jack.
The S model is offered with an optional Navigation package that consists of voice recognition, an 8-inch touchscreen, HD radio, a navigation system, and a USB port with an iPod interface.
The mid-trim SV model gets all the equipment in the Navigation package, plus roof rails, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat (with power lumbar adjustment), foglights and a 4-way power front passenger seat. An optional Premium package for the SV adds a nine-speaker Bose audio system and a panoramic roof.
Going to the SL model gets you the Bose audio system as standard and further adds driver memory settings, heated outside mirrors, rear cross-traffic alerts, a blind spot warning system, leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated front seats, a 360-degree parking camera system, a power liftgate and ambient interior lighting.
The trim topping Platinum model is loaded with the above, plus 20-inch alloy wheels, a power tilt-and-telescoping heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, LED headlights, power return rear seats and
Both the SL and Platinum are offered with a Technology package that includes adaptive cruise control, a panoramic sunroof, a forward collision warning and crash mitigation system.
Engine Specs of the New 2016 Nissan Murano
Under the hood of the new 2016 Nissan Murano will be a 3.5L V6 engine capable of generating around 260 horsepower and 240 pounds of torque. A Continuous Variable Transmission system comes standard, and you will be able to get the Murano in either FWD or AWD.
Despite the lack of official EPA estimates, we expect the vehicle to come with improved fuel economy ratings. That said, the 2015 Nissan Murano EPA estimates were 21/28/24 mpg in the city/highway/combined, which even if the company decides to keep unaltered will still be impressive than what you will normally get from most V6 SUV’s.
Safety has always been a priority for all Muranos and the 2016 year model will not be an exception. Some of the safety features to expect include antilock brakes, hill-start assist, traction and stability control, front side airbags, a driver knee airbag, side curtain airbags, rearview camera and active front head restraints.
