2011 Nissan Murano Priced at $28,500

2011Murano___106
Despite a fairly significant upgrade for 2011, the Nissan Murano only receives a minor price increase for the model year. The 2011 Murano starts at $28,500, which is a $160 price increase from last year’s base model. Actually, the 2010 Murano starting pricing rose from $28,050 at the beginning of last year to $28,340 today, so the price change for 2011 is actually closer to $500, which is still reasonable given the changes.

The 2011 Murano is available in S, SV, SL and LE trims in both front- and all-wheel drive. The SV trim is new for 2011 and comes with features like a dual-panel moonroof, a rearview camera and satellite radio.

Why do they need to increase price of the car which sells under invoice?

Currency, Tony. US$ is like nothing right now...

i alway though this car was over priced with tax and fees its almost 30k. they are too many cars that come to mind when it comes to this price range.

Exactly, Brent.
Highlander is much more of a car for less.
This is why you don't see many of new Muranos on the road. Old ones are still there in numbers. But there are Highlanders everywhere.

Highlander is really a different vehicle. I'd compare Murano vs. Ford Edge and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

That said the Murano is being outsold by both, especially these days. The redesign a few years back was one of the first times I've ever seen a new design sell fewer units than the outgoing, old design.

The Murano is a terrific vehicle though with a great engine and nice interior.

Tony

Well, OK, Highlanders come with 5 seats too and 4 cyl efficiency as well.

Then there is beautiful Venza and Murano loses its shine next to both. It has the interior but not the utility, efficiency and attractiveness.

When I saw new Murano for the first time, I said, this is no go - Aztec reincarnation. But in Russia they sell really well and probably not only because they look better [http://www.inautonews.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/2011-nissan-murano-facelift-4.thumbnail.jpg] but also because they have more fuel efficient engines too.

I've to agree with D.T. that Tony's comparison with the Outlander is a bit of stretch.

My "guess" here for the sales demise of the once hot-selling Murano are such:
(1) Too many 5 seats Nissan SUV/CUV: Juke, Rogue, Murano, Xterra, and Infiniti EX (and kinda with the Infiniti FX-3X).
(2) Price of Murano can reach Infiniti's level.
(3) Not much advertising these days on the Murano.
(4) This class is getting too crowded and incentives from others like Ford and Jeep are huge (2000/4000). Highlander's having 1000-2000 rebate + 2 yr free maintenance too. Compare with Murano's $750 rebate.

Murano's is a beautiful vehicle; I would have bought one if it offers the fuel efficient varient here in the US, plus 7 seats (if available). It is a Nissan that has reached Infiniti's level of craftsmanship. Same can't be said on the Highlander's Lexus counterpart (well, none, except RX).
