Yes, Virginia; Nissan is, in fact, bringing a drop-top 2011 Murano Cross Cabriolet to market. Although we won't have the full skinny on the segment-busting convertible until it debuts later this week at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show, the automaker has seen fit to release this first official image.

Stay tuned to Truck Trend Magazine this week for the complete story on the Cross Cabriolet, which is making its world debut at the 2010 Los Angeles auto show on Wednesday, Nov. 17.

Here's the snippet from Nissan about its new creation:

The world’s first all-wheel drive crossover convertible, delivers the open-air exhilaration of a convertible while extending the versatility of the Murano in exciting new ways. With room for four adults, space for golf bags or luggage (even with the top down), and a premium level interior, the Murano CrossCabriolet represents a breakthrough in concept and design. Set to go on sale in early 2011.
