[Video] 2015 Nissan Murano debuts in New York

One of the originators of the crossover movements, Nissan’s Murano SUV is entering its third generation, with the official public debut scheduled for the New York auto show venue.

Actually, it’s been a long time since we knew the new Murano was coming – as the model was previewed in a flamboyant style by the 2013 Detroit Motor Show Resonance concept.

Back then, the concept was used to show off the future design direction the company will undertake, boasting as a particular feature a very imposing “V-Motion” front fascia. The Murano is quite a radical departure from the current generation, but uses a more down to Earth V-Motion front fascia, toned down boomerang-shaped headlights and what they call a “floating” roof.

Since we’re talking about Nissan – the ones which outed the Juke small crossover – the exterior design will spark a love/hate approach, which ends up making the model rather unforgettable. Moving inside the cabin, which features a more traditional approach, Nissan worked much to improve the quality – as the less pricy Rogue was besting the second generation Murano.

The third generation Murano will be manufactured in the US in Nissan’s Mississippi plant, becoming the ninth model built there, is set to hit dealer lots close to the year’s end – with pricing detailed then.

The under the hood power comes from a VQ-Series 3.5-liter V6, which outs 260 hp and 240 lb-ft (325 Nm) of torque, just like it did last year. It’s offered with only the Xtronic transmission and can be paired to an optional 4×4 drive system.
