Specs at a Glance

For years, the Nissan Murano has remained one of America's most popular midsize SUVs. Families love this crossover's bold styling and excellent passenger comfort. It also packs enough performance to keep drivers engaged. For 2021, all trims receive Nissan's impressive Safety Shield 360 system as standard equipment. Let's take a look at how the Murano S compares to Murano SL.


Both trims come standard with the same effective powertrain. Power comes from a proven 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine. It's rated to crank out 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. Nissan Xtronic transmission helps optimize fuel economy. When behind the wheel of the new Murano, look forward to enjoying effortless acceleration. An intelligent AWD system is optional.


Many people are attracted to the Murano's bold exterior design. A striking V-Motion grille and boomerang-shaped LED headlights to help the front fascia to stand out. Meanwhile, dual exhaust outlets and a roof spoiler give the rear end a sporty look. While 18-inch alloy wheels come equipped on the S trim, larger 20-inch alloy wheels are found on the SL trim.


Even the entry-level Murano S gives you a lot of amenities. Drivers especially enjoy using the Nissan Connect infotainment system, which features an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone support. Dual-zone automatic climate control is standard as well. To make the Murano a more secure family hauler, Nissan has recently added Safety Shield 360 to the list of standard equipment. This system adds several active safety technologies, including front/rear automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring.

If you seek more luxury, consider the Murano SL. While a motion-activated liftgate makes it easier to load cargo, an 11-speaker Bose premium audio system gives your music a powerful sound. Heated front and rear seats also come equipped on the Murano SL.
