I called dealerships around the St Louis area and they all tell me they expect the first shipment of Murano's to be in December. No idea on pricing. I've heard $25,999 base and $30,000 base. I'm hopng it's the $25,999. I'd love to see pics of the SUV next to other vehicles for comparision sake. I don't know if I'm going to buy one yet but I do know I'm not going to buy anything until I see this car in person.
