The most popular Nissan Murano engine is the 3.5-liter V-6 DOHC. It produces 245 horsepower and it hums like a sewing machine. The Murano transmission is a CVT type and the first generation of this transmission was a complete failure for Nissan. The Japanese market also had the option of a 2.5 4-cylinder engine that was also used in the Nissan Sentra and the Nissan Altima. The Murano was built to fit into the cross-over market and did fairly well. The most common version came as a front-wheel drive vehicle although all-wheel drive was an option.



The first Murano offer a full array of safety features like airbags throughout the cabin, anti-lock brakes, an advanced type of traction control and electronic brakeforce distribution. These things combined put the Murano into a 5-star crash rating by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration which really helped sales tremendously.

The next generation Murano came to market in 2008 and was fitted with an upgraded V6 engine that was also used in the Infiniti JX, Nissan Maxima and Nissan Altima. The CVT transmission was redone from the ground up and improved reliability for the auto buyer.

The most current Murano engine is also a 3.5-liter V-6 but offers more horsepower and torque than all of the earlier produced models. This engine is even used in the Nissan Pathfinder so durability is almost taken for granted as it is now used in 5 different vehicles produced by Nissan. The newer Murano transmission is a 6-speed automatic and is preferred by most people who are familiar with a CVT (continual variable transmission) due its reliability and cost of repairs if needed. The styling is still aggressive and this model features a “floating roof” in appearance. This is done by adding trim in certain places and hiding door pillars.
