About Nissan Murano
The Nissan Murano (Japanese:, Hepburn: Nissan Murno) is a mid-size crossover SUV produced and marketed by Nissan since May 2002 for the 2003 model year, and is now in its third generation.
The Murano was designed at Nissan America in La Jolla, California, as Nissan’s first crossover SUV for the United States and Canada, and was based on the Nissan FF-L platform shared with the third generation Altima.
The Murano’s European version went on sale in 2004.
Until September 2007, when the Rogue debuted on sale, the Murano was Nissan’s only crossover SUV in the United States. The X-Trail had been on sale in Canada as Nissan’s second car-based SUV from 2004 as a 2005 model; it was replaced by the 2008 Rogue at the end of 2007. The Murano sits between the Pathfinder and the now-defunct Xterra in terms of size (which was replaced by the Rogue as a compact SUV). For the model years 2011 to 2014, a convertible variation, the Murano CrossCabriolet, was available for the second-generation vehicle.
The nameplate Murano is derived from the Italian city of Murano and the city’s well-known Murano art glass.
At the 2002 New York International Auto Show, Nissan presented the first generation Murano in production form for the 2003 model year. It is powered by a 3.5-liter (VQ35DE) V6 producing 245 horsepower (183 kW) and 334 Nm (246 lbft), which is also used in other Nissan models such as the Altima, Maxima, and Nissan 350Z, but has been particularly adjusted for usage in the Murano. The Nissan Murano, which is available with standard front-wheel drive (FWD) and optional all-wheel drive (AWD), is one of the largest vehicles to use a continuously variable gearbox (CVT) at the time. The city fuel economy was evaluated at 18 mpg while the highway fuel economy was assessed at 23 mpg (same mpg FWD and AWD on the new EPA specifications).
Production began in mid-May 2002, with the first vehicles shipping in early June for US markets and mid-July for Canadian markets. For class-leading ride and handling, all wheels were equipped with independent suspension.
Interior safety features included a full set of airbags, a steel-reinforced cabin, and head restraints, while mechanical safety features included VDC, ABS, electronic brakeforce distribution, and braking assist. VDC includes some type of traction control.
