2014 Nissan GT-R priced at $99,590; Black Edition at $109,300
New Murano CrossCabriolet comes in at $41,995.
The 2014 Nissan GT-R will cost $100,590 including a $1,000 destination charge, the company said on Thursday. That's an increase of $2,770 over last year's price. The GT-R Black Edition will come in at $110,300 with the destination charge.
The Nissan's 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 was improved last year to 545 hp and 463 lb-ft. This year, engine response is improved in the mid- and upper-rpm ranges. The body gets more rigid while changes to the shocks, antiroll bar and springs result in a lower center of gravity.
The new Premium Interior package will be offered, which features hand-stitched red accents on the front seats as well as a new red-accented steering wheel on Black Edition models.
The interior features the same old multi-function display with an on-board driving recorder. An 11-speaker sound system is standard, along with a rearview monitor. The car is on sale now.
Also on Thursday, the company announced the 2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet will cost $41,995. That's a rare price decrease of $2,545.
The convertible will get two new colors: Midnight Garnet (dark burgundy) and Gun Metallic (gray). The standard 20-inch, five-spoke wheels have also been redesigned.
The CrossCab continues with the same 3.5-liter V6 as last year, making 265 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. Power is put to all four wheels through Nissan's second-generation CVT.
What's with auto manufacturers and their vehicles' gaping grills?
This one looks like the mouth of a mantaray.
Are we supposed to be intiminated seeing them coming up in our rear-view mirrors?
Whatever, they are BFU!
