The next-generation Nissan Murano is on the move to the United States.
Nissan’s Murano will see assembly by workers at Nissan’s Canton Manufacturing and Assembly Plantm Canton, Miss. beginning in 2014.
This news comes as Nissan begins celebrating 10 years of manufacturing in Mississippi where it currently builds the 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 10 years of manufacturing in Canton, it has become clear throughout the Nissan network that Made in Mississippi is a stamp of quality and great people,” states 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% 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.
