2021 Nissan Murano Preview
The 2021 Nissan Murano is currently in production and slated to hit dealership lots soon. If you’re looking for a spacious and safe SUV for your family adventures around East Providence, Cranston, and Pawtucket, RI, it may be worth waiting for.
Our team at Stateline Nissan has the inside scoop and we’re ready to share it with everyone. Let’s see what you can expect from the 2021 Nissan Murano!
2021 Nissan Murano Improvements in Safety
Nissan Safety Shield® 360 is expected to come standard on the Nissan Murano. This is a huge improvement for this family SUV. This safety suite comes with several confidence-inspiring safety features, so you can enjoy every facet of your drive with peace of mind.
The 2021 Nissan Murano is expected to come with the following safety and driver-assistive features:
- Lane Departure Warning
- Forward Collision Warning
- Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
- Blind-Spot Monitoring
- Front and Rear Automatic Emergency Braking
If past performance is anything to go from, you can also expect the 2021 Murano to perform well in crash tests. Both the 2019 and the 2020 model years received a 5 Star Overall Safety Rating from NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). The added safety features are sure to only solidify that rating for the 2021 model.
The powertrain is one component of the 2021 Nissan Murano that you can expect to stay the same. The tried-and-true 3.5L V6 engine is expected to stay under the hood for 2021. It churns out 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. That’s sure to add a little excitement to the daily drive.
The Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) will remain standard on this SUV. It’s smooth and fuel efficient, so you can also expect the Nissan Murano MPG rating to stay relatively unchanged.
Are you looking for an SUV that provides sure-footed control in rain and snow? We expect Intelligent All-Wheel Drive to still be an available addition on the 2021 Murano. It intuitively transfers power to the rear wheels when more traction is needed, but it can also cruise with front-wheel drive for added efficiency.
The 2021 Murano Is Going Platinum
The Nissan Murano Platinum trim level is returning for the 2021 model year. If you’re looking for top-of-the-line comfort and connectivity, this is the trim level for you. If you have a taste for the finer details, we expect the Platinum to include:
- Leather-trimmed upholstery
- Heated and Cooled Front Seats
- NissanConnect® infotainment system
- Panoramic moonroof
You’ll have access to the smartphone apps and music that you love with NissanConnect®. It comes with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, so syncing up your smartphone will be a breeze. It also offers the Nissan Door to Door Navigation system that will get you from Point A to Point B in a pinch.
If the sound system carries over from last year’s model, you can expect to listen to your favorite tunes on the available Bose® Premium Audio System. It comes with 11 speakers, so you can enjoy an immersive listening experience.
