The Murano is a mid-sized crossover SUV manufactured by the Japanese company Nissan. The Murano was the first crossover SUV the company put forward for the North American market and Canada.
Designed by ‘Nissan America' in La Jolla California, it shared the platform with the third-generation Altima. In the USA, it was the only crossover on sale from Nissan up until the Rogue in 2007.
A first-generation debuted at the New York International Auto Show in 2002 and went on sale in 2003. The first models had a 3.5-liter V6 engine producing 245 hp, a common engine used in many other Nissans.
The Murano featured a steel-reinforced cabin, full set of airbags, ABS and brake assist. It was awarded 5 stars for nearly all crash tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with only one markdown (4 stars) for the rollover test.
A second generation (2007) offered just three trim levels, base S, SL and the top grade LE, all had front-wheel drive as standard with the option to add intelligent all-wheel drive. New optional extras were rain-sensitive wipers, leather seats, a power rear liftgate, iPod connectivity and a navigation system. 2011 saw a refresh for America, but the withdrawal of the model happened in the UK solely due to poor sales.
The third generation was again displayed at the New York International Auto Show and had a 3.5-liter V6 260 hp engine. 2014 saw the removal of the vehicle from more markets, namely Japan and Australia but for the USA, updates were made to the front and rear styling.
Every Murano was fitted with the Nissan safety shield 360 as standard, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, high beam assist and pedestrian detection. It was at this point that manufacturing was relocated from Canton to the Nissan Smyrna Assembly plant in Tennessee.
