And, the better it holds it's value, since the older ones look like the new ones. I'm trading in my 2017.5 SV AWD w/ tech package for a new Ford Maverick (Due to arrive in February), and the trade-in value is $200 more than I paid for it a year ago, even after I've put 12,000 more miles on it. The new truck is $32,000, and I'm getting 21,000 for the Mo, enabling me to pay cash for the new truck. I'm rather pleased about that.Surprising to see they will still sell a 2022 Mo at all...Nissan is not gonna put another cent of development into it.
The longer they sell the existing model, the better future parts availability should be.
Fortunately, I bought my Murano used with very low mileage, 25k. It still only has 35k on it, so that helps a lot. I realize the resale is terrible if you buy it new, but in the used market, I haven't lost a thing. I really like that car, but I have retired and my wife and I want to travel.You hit the market at a good spot for trade-in but the Murano is not a good resale vehicle.
Our '17 Subaru Forester (sticker price $29k, we paid $26k new) has a private party sale value of about $24k after 5 years of ownership. In comparison, our '18 Murano is probably down by $8-10k from what we paid for it as a new car after 4 years of ownership.
When we had kids in the nest, we also had a couple of Chrysler mini-vans over the years as a second car. For my personal transportation, I've always preferred compact vehicles. I'm not quite as old as dirt, but I remember when dirt was still under warranty. Just a few of what I've gone through: 64 F100, 66 Corvair Monza, Ford Maverick (car), Fiat 500 (original rear-engine toy), Mitsubishi Mighty Max (very) compact truck with a 5 1/2?a foot bed and 4WD with locking differential, several Saabs, all turbo, Mecedes 300D Turbo (2 of them), Mercury Milan Premier, various small SUVs. And my favorite crossover SUV has been the Murano. So, the Maverick truck hits the sweet spot for me, between compactness and capabillity. My car dealer friend noted that it seems I change cars more frequently than my underwear. Ha.The Maverick is longer than my full size 1978 F100 was In fact, the old F100 (6.5' bed) was barely longer than the current gen Murano (somewhere between 190 and 200") but that's when trucks were not expected to have a back seat.
Big plus of the Maverick over the Mo for you is pulling the camper so for you it's a no-brainer and a great choice. Long wheelbase on the Maverick is helpful also.
My Grand Caravan will hold 4x8 sheets INSIDE out of the weather and my full size vans would eat a tall pile of 4x8's, or a queen size box spring (60" x 80"), or a 12' ladder, again fully inside with doors locked. I did a lot of Boy Scout activities with my son and was prez of a big bicycle club, so vans rule in that environment.
Good luck with the Maverick. I'm waiting for the next gen Transit Connect in AWD/4WD
