2022 Murano Engine, Transmission, and Performance

When it comes to power, the 2021 Murano has plenty of punch. Under the hood, the 2021 Murano boasts a powerful 3.5-liter V-6 which produces a whopping 260 horsepower. Its famous continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) runs with front-wheel drive (standard) or all-wheel drive, which can be added to any trim for an additional fee. On 2021 Murano test drives or road tests, the 2021 Murano displayed great acceleration and zippiness around town drives. The 2021 Murano also performs wonderfully on long road distance highway trips allowing drivers and passengers to have a peaceful quiet ride.

The Nissan Murano is only rated to tow 1,500 pounds. That’s very little for a mid-size SUV, and some compact SUVs even eclipse it.


Interior and Tech

The 2021 Murano’s cabin is among the best values for its price and one of the nicest, most-well-equipped interiors in its mid-size SUV class. Despite its third-row appearance, the 2021 Murano is a two-row mid-size SUV. If you need a third row, the longer Nissan Pathfinder might be a better fit. Because of its size, the Murano offers better-than-average space for passengers and cargo and even more room when that second seat is stowed (67 cubic feet of cargo space). All seats, designed with Nissan’s Zero Gravity material for maximum comfort, gain even more appreciation on long road trips. With its heavily cushioned Zero Gravity chairs, the 2021 Murano offers the driver and front passenger exceptional comfort and range of position. Rear-seat passengers also benefit from the same ease as the driver and front passenger with a comfortable reclining bench also made available.

Safety and Drivers Assistance

The 2021 Murano scored well in both National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Nissan offers a ton of standard driver-assistance technology on all models.

Key safety features include:

  • Standard forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking
  • Standard blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
  • Standard lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist



  • The limited warranty covers three years or 36,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers five years or 60,000 miles
  • No complimentary scheduled maintenance
