MSRP Drops $4,000; New Mid-Priced SV Trim Model Added for 2011
Nissan Canada today released pricing for the 2011 Nissan Murano which will go on sale this week at dealers nationwide. With a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at just $34,498, the 2011 Murano is up to $4000 less than the 2010 model and provides a variety of value-packed options for the Canadian consumer.

“Murano defined the Cross-over segment when it was launched in 2003 but this has become an increasingly competitive segment in recent years, and we needed to demonstrate that Murano is still a value-leader in the market” said Mark McDade, Director, Marketing, Nissan Canada. “The refreshed 2011 model provides significant enhancements and more standard features and with our aggressive pricing strategy we expect increased market share in the segment.”

In addition to several design enhancements, the 2011 Murano will also be available in a new trim level offering consumers more choice. The new SV trim features premium conveniences such as dual panel moonroof, 4-way power passenger seat, 2GB Music Box, iPod® interface and Bluetooth® Handsfree Phone System.
