Product Overview

Nissan Murano (chassis code Z50) is an affordable mid-size crossover in production from 2002 to 2007. It was available with a range of inline-4 and V6 engines that displaced 2.5 to 3.5 liters.
One of Nissan's early crossovers, the Murano has a strange exterior styling. Unfortunately, it was released at a time when Nissan used a lot of French tech. The vehicle had suspicious reliability and uses a CVT transmission.
Those who drive offroad, for work or leisure, need to think twice before pulling the trigger: the Nissan Murano is hardly the "offroader" that Nissan would like you to think. Utility-minded owners will love the 2005L (71cu-ft) cargo space.
