The 2023 Nissan Murano will return in a form that is, for the most part, unaltered as the vehicle continues to wait for an overhaul. A couple of new paint colors and revised logos aren’t the only changes made to the Murano; it also receives a little price increase across the board, with the base S model now costing $34,955 more than before.
It’s possible that the Murano won’t see any significant updates until 2024, but when it does, the new model will almost certainly have a higher starting price.
What’s the Latest Update?
The only changes that will be made to the 2023 Nissan Murano are new logos for both the interior and exterior, as well as two new exterior paint options: Super Black and Deep Ocean Blue Pearl. These colours will be available in addition to Boulder Gray Pearl, Brilliant Silver Metallic, Gun Metallic, Pearl White TriCoat, and Scarlet Ember Tintcoat. A price increase of $350 applies to each and every model.
2023 Nissan Murano Engine and Other Features
There is a 260-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that is standard on all Murano variants. This engine is mated with an automatic transmission that has a constantly variable speed. Although the V-6 engine generates sufficient power for merging and overtaking on the highway, the SUV’s Achilles heel is the continuously variable transmission (CVT), which lacks responsiveness and configurable drive modes. The EPA estimates that each model achieves 20/28/23 miles per gallon in the city, on the highway, and in mixed driving conditions. Front-wheel drive comes standard on all models, while all-wheel drive is an optional option.
Automatic emergency braking is a component of the Safety Shield 360 package, together with pedestrian recognition, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot warning, automatic braking when the vehicle is in reverse, and automatic high-beam assist. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has recognised the 2022 Murano as a Top Safety Pick Plus vehicle, further adding to the vehicle’s already impressive record of safety.
In addition, each model comes standard with LED headlights, dual-zone automatic temperature control, keyless entry, and a touchscreen measuring 8 inches in size that is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
2023 Nissan Murano Price and Trim Levels
In 2023, Nissan will bring back the Murano in four different trim levels: S, SV, SL, and Platinum. A moonroof can be added to the SL model for an additional $1,490, while the Midnight Edition Package, which is available on the SV and retails for $1,590, adds blackened exterior highlights, 20-inch gloss-black alloys, and illuminated kick plates. Wheels with a diameter of 18 inches are standard on the S and SV, while wheels with a diameter of 20 inches come standard on higher trims.
Inside, the S and SV models have cloth seats, while the SL and Platinum have leather upholstery. All variants, with the exception of the S, have standard heated and ventilated seats. Both the SL and the Platinum trim level include an integrated navigation system that is capable of voice recognition in addition to an upgrade from the normal six-speaker audio system to a premium 11-speaker Bose system.
