CANTON, Miss. – The next-generation Nissan Murano is on the move to the U.S. where it will be assembled by workers at Nissan's Canton Manufacturing and Assembly Plant beginning in 2014.
This news comes as Nissan begins celebrating 10 years of manufacturing in Mississippi where it currently builds the award-winning Altima, the Armada full-size SUV, the Xterra mid-size SUV, the Titan and Frontier pickup trucks and NV commercial and passenger vans.
"As we look back on ten years of manufacturing in Canton, it's become clear throughout the Nissan network that 'Made in Mississippi' is a stamp of quality and great people," said Bill Krueger, vice chairman of Nissan Americas."With the addition of this new model in Canton, Nissan is well on its way toward meeting our goal to manufacture 85 percent of the vehicles we sell in the U.S. right here in North America."
The new Nissan Murano will showcase a progressive crossover design, and the company will unveil styling cues for future Nissan crossovers on a concept vehicle debuting at the North American International Auto Show on Jan. 14.
