2013 Nissan Murano Gets More Safety Tech and Starts at $29,960

Nissan has announced the updates to the 2013 Nissan Murano, which for the 2013 model year gets Nissan's Safety Shield technologies like Moving Object Detection, Blind Spot Warning and Lane Departure Warning.


Nissan has also added a new Value Package ($2,270) for SV models that includes a power liftgate, Bose audio system with 9 speakers plus dual subwoofers and Nissan Navigation system. Two new exterior colors, Midnight Garnet and Gun Metallic, are also added for 2013.


Murano also adds available advanced Safety Shield technologies to the Navigation Package and Platinum Edition Package, with Moving Object Detection, Blind Spot Warning and Lane Departure Warning systems. Moving Object Detection detects moving objects, such as other vehicles, when the RearView Monitor is engaged when backing up and warns the driver with visual and audible cues. The Blind Spot Warning System uses the Murano's advanced rearview camera to scan blind spots and alerts the driver if there is a vehicle in the zone. The driver is then alerted with audible and visual indicators. In the same way, the Lane Departure Warning system uses the rearview camera to monitor lane markings and alerts the driver if the vehicle unintentionally crosses these markers.

The 2013 Nissan Murano is powered by a 3.5-liter DOHC V6 rated at 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque that is mated to an Xtronic CVT.
