Nissan Sets Stage for 2015 Murano Debut

2015 Murano Debut
Current Nissan Murano – Available at Blackburn Nissan!

If the suspense of waiting for a glimpse of the 2015 Nissan Murano is leaving you breathless, go ahead and take a big gulp of air—Nissan has released a sneak peek at the redesigned crossover before its debut on April 16 at the New York International Auto Show in New York City.

Lasting a frustratingly short nine seconds and no longer, the sneak peek video still manages to illustrate the 2015 Murano’s striking bodylines and tasteful curves without giving too much away, previewing a crossover SUV that is sure to stop you in your tracks. The quick video is also previewing something new for Nissan as a whole—a new design language the Japanese carmaker plans on using in designing all future production vehicles.

With the brief glimpse we got, we here at Blackburn Nissan are sure that the 2015 Murano debut will impress everyone, especially since it will feature more room, an opulent interior, and more technology than ever before. Do you agree? Share your thoughts with us below by leaving a comment!

Nissan LEAF Drives 100+ Miles in Extreme Conditions

It’s well known that weather can have a huge effect on the range of your all-electric car, whether it’s bitter cold or scorching heat. How drastic can that change be though? According to FleetCarma, the best possible range of the Nissan LEAF is still over 100 miles, one of the highest in its class.

The data collected, which examines just how well all-electric cars drive in extreme conditions, shows that the LEAF’s average range of 64 miles can be increased to 106 miles, easily out driving the Chevrolet Volt, which received an average range of 26 miles. All you have to do is change a few of your driving habits to increase your LEAF’s range.

In order to increase your Nissan LEAF’s range in extreme weather conditions, utilize your regenerative braking as much as possible on clear roads, ensuring that your battery will keep receiving charges throughout your trip. Also, preheat or cool the cabin before you unplug your vehicle from its charging station. This will ensure you won’t lose your power before setting off on your next adventure!
