Murano is the name of an SUV model from Nissan, which is running its third generation. Nissan has introduced the Murano model for the year 2003 and it is still going strong in its 2022 model year lineup. Redesigned way back for the 2015 model year edition, the SUV certainly might appear as dated, especially if you compare it against its closest rivals.
The 2022 Nissan Murano is a member of the five-passenger midsize SUVs, and in its own family, it slots between the Rogue that is a compact SUV, and the Pathfinder that offers a three-row seating arrangement, confirmed the Nissan dealership near Paso Robles.
What is Offered New for the Year 2022?
The year 2022 does not make much of a change to the Nissan Murano lineup except for the Midnight Edition package that dresses up the Murano models in black especially on the wheels and on other styling components. Moreover, on the SV trim, Nissan added heated leather seats.
Comfort being Nissan’s forte, naturally determines the fact that a successful model like Murano will have it at its best. This midsize crossover model from Nissan not only lays in a spacious cabin, but also fills in all the comfort-oriented features like superlative comfortable seats with plenty of power switches given to the driver. The 2022 Nissan Murano also gathers lots of appreciation for its predictable braking. Overall, the auto critics often recommend the 2022 Nissan Murano for delivering a smooth and composed ride. On the other hand, small families prefer the Murano models for its ease of parking, in spite of its quite big size. Making space for five adult people, the 2022 Nissan Murano saves up 32.1 cubic feet of space for cargo, behind the rear seat. However, this space can expand further to 67.0 cubic feet, by folding down the rear seat. Other features that make the 2022 Nissan Murano an attractive SUV option include heated front and rear seats, a dual-pane moon roof, an 11-speaker Bose sound system.
All the 2022 Nissan Murano models run on a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that equips the SUV with an adequate 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. The power churns out when the engine gets a CVT automatic gearbox to pair with. However, Nissan also allows the Murano buyers to choose between a standard FWD configuration and an AWD setup as well.
The IIHS gave the Nissan Murano the 2021 Top Safety Pick+ award. It has earned this decent score in safety for its overall headlight evaluation. When the NHTSA tested the 2022 Murano, it gave this SUV a five-star rating for its overall safety standards including the front and side crash tests. All 2022 Nissan Murano models now come standard with features like automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking in collaboration with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, blind-spot warning, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and a monitor that detects driver alertness. Paying a few extra bucks will enable the 2022 Nissan Murano with a 360-degree camera system, suggested the sales team leader of the Paso Robles area Nissan dealership.
