Nissan to Build Next Murano at Canton, Mississippi Facility in 2014

Erick AyapanaJan 11, 2013
The next-generation Nissan Murano will be manufactured at the automaker's assembly plant in Canton, Mississippi sometime next year. Nissan made the announcement not long after revealing a teaser image of the Nissan Resonance crossover concept, which carries a few design cues we can expect in the future Murano. Last year, rumors suggested Nissan would move production to its plant in Smyrna, Tennessee.

The new Murano will mark the third-generation of the five-passenger crossover, which was originally introduced in 2002. Debuting at the 2013 Detroit auto show, the Resonance concept likely gives us an idea of what to expect for the design of the next-gen Murano, though there's also a small chance it's a sneak-peak at the upcoming Rogue redesign. The teaser illustration reveals the concept's side profile, showcasing sharp lines and a U-shaped taillight that mimics the Nissan Juke.
Once Murano production moves to the U.S., the Juke will become the last remaining Nissan crossover imported from Japan. Nissan's Smyrna plant currently builds the Pathfinder, which will soon be joined by the Rogue in this spring. The Xterra is produced in Canton.

Nissan is just one of many Japanese automakers struggling with exchange rates that make producing a profit on Japanese-made vehicles difficult. As a result, Nissan has set a goal to build 85 percent of the cars sold in the U.S. from its North American plants.
