Nissan subtly informs the US market that the Murano Hybrid is available for 2016

Nissan usually likes to do it big when revealing a new car, but this time, the company decided to keep things on the hush-side when launching the all-new 2016 Murano Hybrid in the US.

After much anticipation, the first Murano Hybrid is now available to purchase on our shores after numerous reports suggested a hybridized version of Nissan’s popular crossover began to surface in the beginning of the year.

Though despite the popularity of hybrids and crossovers, in which you’d assume that when the two come together, they’d sell faster than hotcakes because it would only make sense to combine two of the hottest topics in the automotive world today, Nissan actually only plans to move about 600 Murano Hybrids this year.

The Murano Hybrid gets a very unique setup, featuring a supercharged 2.5L inline-four, mated to an electric motor to churn out a total of 249hp. Yes, Nissan’s Xtronic CVT is still standard, but is also expected since most hybrid setups these days utilize a CVT. Front-wheel drive is standard with all-wheel drive as optional.

While the power might be down from the standard 3.5L V6 powerplant with 260hp, fuel economy is supposed to get a boost to 29 mpg combined for the front-wheel drive Murano Hybrid. The combined rating for the standard Murano is 24 mpg.

The Murano Hybrid, like the regular Murano, can be had in SL or Platinum trims, depending on how one wants to option it out.

Prices start at $40,950 for the SL while the Platinum starts at $43,000.
