The new Murano will share the same platform used by the Altima and Pathfinder. No details have been released with respect to its powertrain but it's likely to continue use of the V-6 engine and CVT combination currently offered.
The Resonance featured a hybrid powertrain with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine so that's also a possibility.
Nissan says the new model will also feature a spacious, premium interior and advanced, purposeful safety and connective technology.
The 2015 Murano is expected to go on sale this fall.
