Welcome to S65's thoughts where I make a post about something usually just crossed my mind. Let’s talk about a pointless Nissan and a slightly more relevant Nissan that will soon probably cease to exist.
Why on earth did Nissan decide to build the Murano CrossCabriolet? Which executive approved this for production? Why not update the 370Z? It’s been lagging behind since 2009. Not even a facelift? Nissan what is this? I haven’t heard any plans to update it or anything, I know the Nismo got a facelift in 2015 ( The regular 370 got facelifted in 2013 ). For the price of a base 370Z ($29,990) I’d rather get a freshly facelifted BRZ which gains 5 horsepower and 5 lb-ft of torque over the outgoing model,or a new ND Miata. For the price of a 370Z Touring ($37,970) I’d get a used C6 Z06. I’m not quite sure why anyone would buy a new 370Z. I’d bet the 370Z will either get facelifted soon or put out to pasture. Why even build a convertible Murano? It seems like such a compromise between a somewhat practical crossover and a “meh” V6 Mustang or Camaro. Who even bought those? What was the point?
Has the 370Z reached the end of it’s term? Did anybody really even want a Murano Crosscab? Why does it even exist?
