The forthcoming 2021 Nissan Murano is almost ready to arrive. This model is known as a comfortable, substantial, and refined crossover SUV that comes with two rows of seats and room for five occupants. Dimensionally, the new model sits between the compact Nissan Rogue and the bigger 3-row Pathfinder, and it is a direct competitor to the SUVs like Ford Edge, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Honda Passport, and new Chevrolet Trailblazer.
The Japanese manufacturer will update a new model, and we can expect premium design and enhanced safety offerings. Also, some changes should happen under the hood.
Attractive and More Elegant “Floating Roof”
The new 2021 Nissan Murano is a handsome and stylish SUV that will be redesigned for the following year. As before, Murano will come with an attractive and more elegant “floating roof” and Nissan’s “V-Motion” grille.
Also, some small updates will happen that will include redesigned LED headlights, taillights, and the new fog lights. Like before, Murano mid-size SUV comes with the stylish 18 inches wheels as standard, and on lower trims, while choosing upper trim like Premier, customers will get a more significant 20 inches wheels. Roof rails are standard on all trims, except standard one.
2021 Nissan Murano Cabin Features
The 2021 Nissan Murano will remain roomy and modern as before. This SUV is a two-row model that is made for 5-passenger form only. Cargo space is generous with 67 cubic feet, but not quite good as the capacity of the new Honda Passport, which provides 77.9 cubic feet.
Like before, 2021 Murano is available in four trims: S, SV, SL, and the top-line Platinum. Murano S, that is basic, includes an 8-inch touch display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, dual-zone climate control, push-button start, automatic emergency braking system, AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth audio system with USB. Choosing the SV trim, customers will get the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, blind-spot monitoring, roof rails, universal garage remote, and so on.
However, one of the recommended trims is Murano SL. This trim will add leather upholstery, heated front, and rear seats, heated steering wheel, parking sensors plus Nissan’s nifty Around View bird’s-eye.
2021 Nissan Murano Powertrain, Towing Capacity
The new 2021 Nissan Murano will use the same powertrain. As you may know, this SUV is unfortunately only available with a single option. Under the hood of the current model is a 3.5-liter V6 that makes 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. However, this is the only department where Murano lacks from its opponents.
Most of its opponents offer two or three engine options. Murano uses a continuously variable automatic transmission and comes with standard front-wheel drive (FWD), and can be optioned with all-wheel drive (AWD). Thanks to this engine the Murano`s tow rating is 1,500 pounds, which is very low for this segment.
2021 Nissan Murano Price and Release Date
The upcoming 2021 Nissan Murano will introduce some changes and updates. The current model has an (MSRP) of $32,300. This price includes destination charge. However, if one goes for SV trim, the price will jump to $34,440.
The most equipped Murano Platinum begins at $43,500 and can go up to 45,000. This price is a bit higher than competitors like the Ford Edge and Chevrolet Blazer. New 5-passenger 2021 Nissan Murano will be released in mid-2020.
