Stay ahead of the pack with a 260-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 engine. Aerodynamics achieve a drag coefficient of 0.31 – comparable to some sports cars – which helps contribute to an impressive 28 MPG on the highway. []
Xtronic CVT® Transmission
Accelerating without hesitating. Without traditional gears, the Xtronic CVT is able to hold the engine in the “sweet spot” for instant, smooth acceleration. And during cruising, it keeps engine rpm low for a quiet and fuel-efficient drive.
The available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive adapts to changing conditions instantly, helping you get the grip you need for the situation. The system can automatically switch from 2-wheel to 4-wheel and back, for optimal fuel efficiency and confidence on the road.
START WITH ALL FOUR
The second you pull away, Intelligent AWD turns on, delivering power to both front and rear wheels for improved grip.
CRUISE WITH JUST TWO
Once you’re up to speed, no sense powering all four wheels, so the Nissan Murano efficiently sends the power all up front.
CORNER WITH ALL FOUR
For enhanced cornering control and traction on curvy roads, the Intelligent AWD compensates by transferring some of that power from the front to the rear wheels.
Impressive Suspension and Handling
Refinement In Motion
A 4-wheel independent suspension offers responsive handling and a comfortable ride. Rebound springs and rigid stabilizer bars are happy carving corners or soaking up bumps. And vehicle-speed-sensitive power steering is light at low speeds and firms up when you’re cruising.
