The 2018 Nissan Murano is here at Ramsey Nissan and it’s been a big hit because of its technology inside. Whether it’s safety, convenience or comfort you desire, the Murano does it all!
There are so many changes that you can find in the latest Murano, whether it’s an all-new feature that’s been added or an upgraded amenity that’s now available for more of the SUV’s lineup consisting of the Murano S, Murano SV, Murano SL & Murano Platinum.
With that being said, let’s take a look at 8 updates you’ll enjoy for the 2018 Nissan Murano when driving in the Bergen County NJ & Rockland County NY area and beyond.
1. Automatic Emergency Braking
Discussed in a previous blog post, automatic emergency braking now comes standard in the Murano. This technology helps slow you down automatically if you’re approaching the vehicle in front of you too quickly. It works in conjunction with the intelligent forward collision warning feature.
2. Blind Spot Warning & Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Like peanut butter & jelly, blind spot warning & rear cross traffic alert are 2 technologies that just go together and now come standard on the Murano SV. Blind spot warning gives you an audible alarm when your Murano is crossing over into another lane on highways like the NJ Turnpike & Garden State Parkway, while rear cross traffic alert lets you know when another vehicle goes into your path while backing out of a parking spot or driveway.
3. NissanConnect with Navigation
In other SUVs, access to 3rd-party apps and a navigation system is an upgrade. Not for the 2018 Nissan Murano! That’s because NissanConnect with Navigation comes standard and this infotainment system lets you take advantage of it all, along with easy smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, on a huge 8” touchscreen display.
4. 2018 Nissan Murano SV Premium Package
One of the most popular options from 2017 gets even better in 2018. That’s because the Murano SV Premium Package now gives you the following upgrades:
- 11-speaker Bose premium audio system
- Power panoramic moonroof
- Heated front seats & outside mirrors
- 18” Gun Metal aluminum-alloy wheels
- Intelligent Around View Monitor
- Intelligent Driver Alertness
- Intelligent Cruise Control (which now also comes standard in the SL for 2018)
5. 2018 Nissan Murano Midnight Edition
Another interesting new option for 2017 was the Nissan Murano Midnight Edition. It returns to 2018 with an updated list of details to give you a sleek touch of darkness that includes:
- Black power heated outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators
- Black roof rails
- Black splash guards
- Black Midnight Edition badging & 20” alloy wheels
- Illuminated kick plates
6. 2 Moonroof Options
If you want an open-air driving experience, then you have options thanks to the moonroof selection the 2018 Murano has to offer. There’s a Murano SL Moonroof Package that gives you power panoramic moonroof with 1-touch open/close capability or a dual pane moonroof that now comes standard in the Nissan Murano Platinum. Either way, you’ll enjoy the ride with the roof open or closed.
7. Motion-Activated Power Liftgate
A new-for-2018 feature for the Murano is a motion-activated power liftgate, which comes standard in the Nissan Murano SL and Platinum. This technology makes it easier to load heavy cargo like bags full of groceries, golf clubs and everything the kids need for little league since you no longer need to use your hands to open the hatch.
8. Redesigned Interior
When you take a look inside the new Murano, you’ll see what the center console has a revised design. The reason for this change is to improve the storage capability and accessibility to the console, so you can enjoy your drive more while keeping your important necessities, your smartphone or a snack within reach on any ride.
