Nissan Increases Prices On 2014 GT-R, Drops Price Of 2014 Murano CrossCabriolet

Nissan has announced a sharp price increase for the 2014 GT-R sports car, at the same time as it announced a significant price cut for the 2014 Murano CrossCabriolet. Both models are on sale now.

The 2014 Nissan GT-R will once again see a price increase — Nissan has bumped the all-wheel-drive monster’s sticker price every year since the car launched. That means the 2014 GT-R Premium starts at $100,590 after a $1000 destination charge, an increase of $2770 over last year’s car. The GT-R Black Edition, which adds a carbon-fiber rear wing, lightweight wheels, and a few other tweaks now costs $110,330, up $3010 compared to the 2013 car.

The price increase goes along with a long list of equipment changes. The 2014 Nissan GT-R‘s engine has been tweaked for better midrange torque and improved oiling, its suspension was tweaked for a lower center of gravity, and extra bracing reduces chassis flex.

Meanwhile, the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet enters its fourth year on sale with a significant price cut. The 2014 droptop crossover now starts at $42,840 after an $845 destination charge, a discount of $2545 compared to last year’s model. Updates to the CrossCabriolet include the addition of three new paint colors, and a new design for the 20-inch alloy wheels.

The unusual, quirky Murano CrossCabriolet has been somewhat successful but will be discontinued when the next-generation Nissan Murano crossover arrives in a year or two. Cutting its base price may be a ploy to buoy sales during the car’s remaining time on sale. Sales of all Muranos last year tallied 51,675 units, a respectable number but down 3.6 percent versus 2011.
