Even though the Nissan Murano is getting a little long in the tooth, it’s still a strong seller for the brand. In fact, for the first quarter this year, sales for the SUV were up 32.3% year-over-year. Since this midsize SUV is slated to be redesigned for 2025 (we previously reported it was 2024), we aren’t going to see many changes for 2024, and at first blush, it looks like there’s a significant price hike for the 2024 Nissan Murano. But it’s more of a streamlining of trims than an actual price hike.
On paper, base to base, you’ll notice there is nearly a $4k increase. But Nissan has dropped the base S trim, which started at $34,160 for 2023. Now, the base trim is the SV, and if you look at the 2023 SV vs the 2024 SV, there’s only a $220 increase. Actually, there is only a $220 increase across the board.
Pricing below doesn’t include the $1,335 destination fee.
Note: The top Midnight trim has also been dropped, so we didn’t include it in the pricing comparo.
|Trim||2023 MSRP||2024 MSRP|
|Murano S FWD||$34,160||n/a|
|Murano SV FWD||$37,770||$37,920|
|Murano SL FWD||$41,660||$41,880|
|Murano Platinum FWD||$45,710||$45,930|
|Murano S AWD||$35,860||n/a|
|Murano SV AWD||$39,400||$39,620|
|Murano SL AWD||$43,360||$43,580|
|Murano Platinum AWD||$47,410||$47,630|
Other than the trim shakeup? Not really. The only other change the 2024 Nissan Murano press release mentions is that a power panoramic roof is now standard on the SL trim.
So, it looks like Nissan is just holding the line until it can get that redesigned 2025 Murano out the door. We expect a new powertrain, more tech and a higher level of connectivity as well as a complete redesign.
Since we had previously thought the redesign was coming for 2024, we have to wonder if that tool theft affected more than just the Nissan Kicks.
