The 2019 Nissan Murano Starts From $32,315 – Here’s What’s New (And What’s Not) [Video]

The Platinum trim costs $1,100 more than the 2018 model

The 2019 Nissan Murano goes on sale December 20th. 

Nissan has revised the Murano for the new year, packing in some subtle but welcome changes. A new, more pronounced grille kicks off the new model, as does new LED headlights, taillights and fog lights. Most significant, however, is the inclusion of Nissan Safety Shield 360, an updated suite of driver assistance features. The 2019 Nissan Murano starts off at $32,315 including destination, and will go on sale this Thursday, December 20.

Nissan refreshes the 2019 MuranoNissan Safety Shield 360, also included in the 2019 Maxima, is available on SL trim as a package option, and comes standard on the Platinum trim. The suite includes six safety features, including front and rear Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning and High Beam Assist. There are four trims in total: S, SV, SL and Platinum, all of which are available in front or all-wheel drive. Under the hood is the same 260 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 and CVT that we saw in the outgoing model.

New standard equipment

On top of the options, Nissan also includes new standard equipment in the 2019 Murano. Second-row side airbags and front passenger knee airbags are now on all trims. Nissan’s Rear Door Alert system, which alerts the driver when they left something behind, also comes standard on all models. Finally, you get an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto across the board.
