2021 Nissan Murano for Sale in Warwick, RI
Crossovers are selling like mad these days, with seemingly every driver wanting an undeniably practical vehicle that’s a combination of car and SUV. The Nissan Murano, though, goes way back to the early days of this automotive segment, as it was introduced for the 2003 model year. Today, this spacious and sharp-looking five-seater continues its fourth generation, slotting between the smaller Rogue and the larger Pathfinder. Nissan has made its Safety Shield 360 driver-assist technology bundle standard on all 2021 Murano trims, and a Special Edition Package (20-inch wheels, surround-view monitor, panoramic sunroof, and faux-leather seats that are heated in the front row) makes its debut.
Trims and Powertrain
The four trim levels of the 2021 Nissan Murano are the S, SV, SL, and Platinum. The powertrain is made up of a 260-horsepower 3.5-liter six-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission. Front-wheel drive is the default, with Nissan’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive available. Fuel economy as rated by the EPA is 20 mpg around town and 28 mpg on the highway for both the FWD and AWD versions. The Murano’s towing capacity is capped at 1,500 pounds, but the actual limit may be lower for certain trim/drivetrain combinations (see the owner’s manual for specifics).
Standard and Optional Features
Some of the highlights of the S trim’s standard equipment list include power exterior mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators, auto on/off LED headlights, keyless entry and ignition, chrome door handles, 18-inch wheels, dual-zone automatic temperature control, two USB ports and two USB-C ports, and a Drive Assist display that shows important vehicle information (speed, tire pressure, infotainment specifics, and more) in a central spot that the driver can monitor with minimal distraction. The SV is upgraded with heated exterior mirrors, LED fog lights, power front seats, remote start, LED fog lights, roof rails with a black finish, and leather wrapping on the shift knob and steering wheel. The aforementioned Special Edition Package is offered for this trim only.
The SL gets the surround-view monitor and heated front seats as standard features, along with a heated steering wheel, 20-inch wheels, roof rails in silver tone, a hands-free liftgate, a HomeLink transceiver, ambient interior lighting, navigation, genuine leather upholstery, and heated rear outboard seats. As the highest trim, the Platinum is loaded with all of the goodies: the panoramic sunroof, 20-inch wheels with a silver finish, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel with memory, ventilated front seats, and semi-aniline leather seats with diamond-quilted panels.
Safety and Technology
This is the first model year that Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 is included as a standard feature on all Muranos. This high-tech package of driver-assist features contains automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, intelligent lane intervention, rear automatic braking (a class exclusive), a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, a driver alertness system, and rear parking sonar. Adaptive cruise control and front sonar are added at the SV level; the SL and Platinum also get traffic sign recognition.
The ’21 Murano is also set up well with today’s best technology for entertainment and communication. The infotainment system is controlled via an 8-inch touchscreen and voice recognition; the base edition (found on the first two trims) has Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, hands-free texting, a six-speaker sound system, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. The SL and Platinum swap in a premium Bose audio system with eleven speakers, including subwoofers.
