2011 Nissan Murano 4.5 21
$ 10,906-21,726
September 10, 2010
Vehicle Overview

The Murano competes in price and size with the Ford Edge, Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander. It seats five. The Murano comes in four trim levels: S, SL, SV and LE. All four come with front- or all-wheel drive.

New for 2011
The Murano gets both exterior and interior styling tweaks, and there is a new SV trim level that's a midrange offering, positioned just above the S trim. 

The front end has bold headlight clusters and optional bi-xenon headlights. The rear end has some distinctive shapes, including a rear window designed for good rear visibility. LED taillights and dual chrome tailpipes are standard, while a roof rack and a power liftgate are optional. For 2011, the grille and front bumper have been reworked, and there are new taillights. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 18-inch wheels
  • Optional 20-inch wheels
  • Optional fog lights
  • Optional moonroof
  • Optional roof rails

The Murano's interior can incorporate double-stitched leather  or wood trim. The interior was refreshed for 2011 and now includes new center-stack materials and a new wood grain hue. Interior features include:

  • Standard six-CD changer and MP3 jack
  • Standard tilt/telescoping steering wheel
  • Available Bose premium audio with XM Satellite Radio
  • Available backseat 7-inch screen for DVDs
  • Available heated front and rear seats
  • Available rain-sensing wipers
  • Available 7-inch dashboard display with rearview camera and navigation system

Under the Hood
Nissan's familiar 3.5-liter V-6 powers the Murano, producing 260 horsepower and 240 pounds-feet of torque. The transmission is a continuously variable one, called Xtronic, which is one of the most time-proven ones on the market. All trims are available in either front- or all-wheel drive. Mechanical features include:

  • Standard continuously variable automatic transmission
  • Standard push-button start

In addition to the required front airbags, the Murano has side-impact airbags for front occupants and side curtains to protect both rows of seats. The curtains are designed to deploy in the event of a rollover, too. Safety features include:

  • Standard front- and side-impact airbags
  • Standard side curtain airbags for both rows
  • Standard active head restraints
  • Standard four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Standard electronic stability system with traction control
