Making its return after a one-year hiatus, the 2009 Nissan Murano joins the crossover utility vehicle market with a new design, upgraded powertrain and technological options. Similar in size and standard equipment to the Mazda CX-7 and Ford Edge, the Murano has much to offer with its revised, more powerful engine and a lower price. It’s virtually the same size as the last version and still lacks a third row, but the interior space and available leather seating make the Murano comfortable and give it a luxurious feeling.
The 2009 Nissan Murano SL offers a more luxurious, higher-quality interior than the Ford Edge and is bigger the Mazda CX-7.
The Murano sports a new gorgeus exterior look, including new head and taillights and 18- or 20-inch wheels, along with a new LE trim level that replaces the SE. A revised 3.5-liter V6 engine puts out about 20 more horsepower and is connected to a new Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Interior changes include available power-return rear seatbacks, a cargo divider and a dual-panel moonroof.
Nissan murano is the best car i ever owned, no problems, fun to drive, very good looking inside and outside, Bose surround system included, could not be happier, THE ONLY NEGATIVE side on the truck is how expensive the gas is, (is better on highway, that inside the city with traffic), but the MURANO is so cool and reliable that you sacrifice that part for having a fantastic car.
