Eight Stylish and High-Powered Trims

In the world of mid-size crossover SUVs, there’s normal and there’s the 2021 Nissan Murano. Nissan takes an exceptionally thoughtful approach in the third generation of its Murano line by bringing forward the popular fascia updates imparted in the 2019 model year. But since this is 2021, the company’s primary focus is on normalizing its high-end features downward across the trimline. That means the company’s popular and well-regarded Safety Shield 360® driver-assist system is now standard for every Murano trim. All Murano buyers can now experience the defining level of protection that Nissan has to offer without having to pay extra for the experience.

That’s not all there is to enjoy in the latest Nissan Murano model year. The company has expanded the palette and added a new Special Edition package you may want to explore.

The 2021 Nissan Murano has layers of details left to new and returning buyers. Contact us today to get the full breakdown of the 2021 Nissan Murano specs and features or to schedule a free test drive.

A V6 Across the Board, and Drivetrain Options

If you’re a fan of V6 engines, the 2021 Nissan Murano has exactly what you need at every trim level. Nissan gives buyers a low-hassle approach with the engine. Every Murano trim includes the company’s efficient 3.5L V6 engine. This engine outputs 260 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and offers a torque of 240 @ 4,400 rpm. Both far surpass what you’ll find in the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe SEL.

All trims also provide a standard Xtronic CVT transmission. Unlike the standard multi-speed transmission, a Continuously Variable Automatic Transmission (CVT) is designed to dynamically adjust the gear ratio at every speed. This leads to smoother speed maintenance and overall, a marked improvement in fuel efficiency.

As for fuel efficiency, the 2021 Nissan Murano is the same at every trim level. Enjoy an EPA-estimated 28 MPG highway, whether you purchase a 2021 Murano SV or the Platinum trim.

To help sweeten the deal, Nissan also offers both front-wheel and all-wheel drive for every trim level. The front-wheel-drive version of each trim will save you a bit on the price, while the all-wheel-drive versions will give you all of the traction benefits available in an AWD vehicle.

Fall in Love with the Exterior

This vehicle is designed with serious curb appeal, thanks in no small part to the front and rear fascia updates carried over from the 2019 model year. Of course, the black grille with chrome surround also adds to the appeal on the front end.

Across the vehicle, you’ll enjoy the body-color highlights, and the smooth aluminum wheels (up to 20-inch standard with the Premium trim). As Nissan leans toward fully modern with its design, the 2021 Murano also offers a window grid and roof mount antenna that provides a more streamlined look to the exterior.

As noted earlier, for the 2021 model year Nissan expanded the color options. Magnetic Black, Boulder Gray, and Scarlet Ember are not available for those who want a Murano that truly stands out from the crowd.

Going Digital in the Interior

As with the exterior, the 2021 Nissan Murano is a wonder on the interior, especially for the pilot. The interior is also where you’ll find the most distinguishing differences between the trims, which may help you make your decision when shopping for your next Murano.

All 2021 Murano trims set a high standard and includes Intelligent Key doors, push-button start, leatherette door trim, Bluetooth pairing, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, among many other features and designs. Those who shift their attention to the all-in Platinum trim will enjoy quite a bit more, including remote engine starting via keyfob, a HomeLink garage door transmitter, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a memory driver’s seat. Leather is also the standard in the Premium trim, as seen with the Semi-Aniline Leather seat upholstery and leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The Premium trim is also where you’ll enjoy power everything: 8-way power seat direction; power seat recline, height adjustment, fore/aft, and cushion tilt; power 2-way lumbar support; and power telescoping and tilting steering wheel. At this trim level, the passenger seat also enjoys power features across the seat.

Continuously Improving Safety Technology

Nissan is an industry leader for vehicle safety. The company’s vehicles regularly win IIHS Top Safety Pick awards. The Murano is no exception, regularly hitting the overall Superior rating from IIHS, as well receiving the IIHS Top Safety Pick award for the 2017 Murano. As Nissan has only improved its safety tech since 2017, buyers can be sure this vehicle is the best it’s ever been with its safety features.

The company takes an above-average approach to the more commonly-used safety technologies, including vehicle-wide and crash-tested airbags. Where the vehicle truly shines is in its 21st-century driver-assist technologies made available through the Safety Shield 360® system and the impressive Nissan ProPILOT Assist® system.

These two systems work together to make Nissan’s vehicles, including the Murano, among the safest to take out on the road. Safety Shield 360® is Nissan’s built-in radar and camera system that lives up to the name. The system operates on all four points of the vehicle to create a 360-degree shield of protection that powers safety features such as Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, High Beam Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, and more.

The ProPILOT Assist system builds on the Intelligent Cruise Control and Steering Assist technologies available in the Nissan Murano. By combining these two technologies, the Murano is capable of completely stopping the vehicle while cruise control is turned on, and bringing the vehicle back up to full speed. It can also pair with the navigation system to adjust speed based on the roadway speed limits and can adjust speed for upcoming curves and off-ramps.

A High-Tech Vehicle At an Unbeatable Price

Bring your phones and get ready for the ride with the 2021 Nissan Murano. Bluetooth pairing allows you to take full advantage of the Siri Eyes Free voice-activated controls built into the system. You can also utilize the available NissanConnect Navigation system that includes Voice Activation on select trims.

With 8 available trims, the 2021 Nissan Murano has much more to offer than competing mid-size crossover SUVs. A starting price of just $32,510 for the S trim also makes it a steal, especially considering the amount of technology Nissan packs at the starting trim level.
