CHICAGO — Nissan will take the wraps off its redesigned 2015 Nissan Murano crossover, along with an unnamed concept vehicle, at the 2014 New York Auto Show.

Sales of the redesigned Murano begin this fall. Pricing has not been announced.

The Murano competes with the Ford Edge, Honda CR-V and Toyota Venza, among others.

The new Murano's silhouette and styling cues are drawn from the Nissan Resonance concept. The Resonance concept debuted at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

Speaking of the production version, Nissan's Fred Diaz told Edmunds the exterior "is beautifully styled. The dealers were just foaming at the mouth when I showed them pictures." Diaz is Nissan North America's senior vice president of sales, marketing, parts and service.

As for the redesigned interior, "they almost fell out of their seats they were so excited," Diaz said during an interview at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. "So I am excited by it, encouraged by it. They can't wait to get it."

The redesigned Murano will essentially be the same size as the current five-passenger model. A seven-passenger version will not be added to the model line.

Nissan spokesman Dan Bedore said the automaker offers "three rows in the Rogue as an option and three rows in the Pathfinder for everything. We don't need another three-row crossover."

The new Murano will share a front-drive vehicle platform with the Altima, Pathfinder and the upcoming redesigned Maxima. A hybrid model is expected, although Nissan has not announced powertrains for the next-generation Murano.

The Murano CrossCabriolet, an all-wheel-drive, four-passenger convertible, is not expected to be redesigned and offered in the United States. U.S. sales have been dismal since it was introduced for the 2011 model year. Edmunds described the 2011 CrossCabriolet as a "weird car, both in appearance and concept."

Edmunds says: The Nissan Murano has always managed to blend sensibility with sophistication. Expect the same from the redesign.

    "The Nissan Murano has always managed to blend sensibility with sophistication. Expect the same from the redesign." What does this crap mean?

    The Murano does not compete with the CR-V, as it starts in the $30K+ range. The Rogue is supposed to compete with the CR-V.
