For the first time ever, Nissan Murano production will take place here in the United States. Nissan is moving its production to the Vehicle Assembly Plant in Canton, Mississippi. With the addition of this new model, the plant will add 500 new jobs!
“Recruiting efforts and preparations for the start of Murano production this fall are underway and current employees are excited to add this vehicle to the list of outstanding cars and trucks built in Mississippi,” said John Martin, a Nissan executive, in a statement. “The addition of Murano to our portfolio, coupled with the continued growth and success of the Canton plant, will move us even closer to our goal to build more than 85 percent of the vehicles we sell in the U.S. right here in North America.”
For 2015, the Murano gets dramatic new styling that looks to the future. The front end is highlighted by boomerang-shaped headlights and a large “V-motion” grille. It gets a sleek new look with dynamic bodylines on the sides.
Here at James Ceranti Nissan, we are excited to see Nissan continue its dedication to creating American jobs, and we can’t wait to get the all-new 2015 Nissan Murano on our showroom floor!
