The 2019 Nissan Murano is a bit of an odd duck. It doesn’t come with a luxury nameplate, a reputation for extreme performance, or much in the way of off-roading ability. Yet many SUV shoppers visiting Woodhouse Nissan Bellevue find it plenty compelling for what it is. So what, exactly, is it?
Let’s start under the hood with the 260 horsepower V6 engine, coupled to a CVT that’s programmed to move fluidly through its paces like a conventional automatic transmission. This year’s Nissan Murano may not handle like a hot hatchback, but it doesn’t feel underpowered, either; instead, it’s confident and sure-footed, feeling like a touring sedan.
This new Nissan SUV looks much as it has in years past, but the front and rear fasciae have come in for a slight facelift, the better to highlight the new LED headlights and tail lights. Another feature we think you’ll like: where some manufacturers would squeeze a third row of seating, Nissan piles on the passenger room – including enough room for the rear seats to recline, or to fold down for a maximum 68 cubic feet of cargo space.
Peace of mind is a great way to ensure comfort, too. With a suite of available active safety features like Around View camera, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and automatic emergency braking, your safety and peace of mind are assured.
You can option in more features the higher you go in the lineup, or you can simply start at the top with the Platinum trim. There, you’ll find the best stuff (heated and cooled leather seating, premium sound system, the NissanConnect app, and much more) simply included as standard equipment.
The Nissan Murano defies description. It certainly carves out a niche all its own among SUVs, and among the vehicles on offer at your Nissan dealership near Omaha. To learn more, get answers to your questions, or take a test drive, visit Woodhouse Nissan at 7801 Nebraska Dr.
