Regarding the new 2011 model year, this offers a refreshed grille and bumper design, new taillights, a new 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheel design and a number of interior and content refinements.

These refinements include wood and aluminum accents, a 60/40 fold-flat rear seat with power return, heated front and rear seats, power liftgate and RearView Monitor.

Furthermore, the 2011 Murano comes with a new white meter color, new center stack colors and added equipment to various trim levels – driver’s seat with power lumbar support (SV), RearView Monitor (SV), 7.0-inch color monitor (SV), auto dimming rearview mirror with compass and HomeLink Universal Transceiver (SL) and heated steering wheel (SL). The 2011 model year also brings two new models: SV FWD ($31,910) and SV AWD ($33,510).

Under the hood, the Murano comes with a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine delivering 260 hp and mated to a Xtronic CVT transmission. It is available in a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive.

When the new model was introduced, the 2011 Murano appeared with all the distinctive design elements that define the Murano line. The new car featured wheel arches adorned with 20-inch wheels. These two elements combined gave the 2011 Murano a distinctive and aggressive riding stance.

The front grille has been redesigned, while the front headlights have been made wider. The width of the hood was also extended, joining the bodylines in a seamless union. The rear end itself takes on a distinctive glass shape as well.

The LED tail-lights have been made larger, and take on a new design concept. Finally, the 2011 Murano featured chrome-finished twin exhaust outlets. Other features in the 2011 Murano included a sliding moonroof that is dual-powered, and interior design that featured wood and aluminum elements.

Both the front and rear seats, as well as the steering wheel, are heated, while the driver’s seat included power lumbar support. The rear seats also had power return, and a 60/40 fold-flat ratio. Technological features included a power liftgate, a RearView monitor, a 7.0-inch color monitor and auto-dimming for the rearview mirror.

The rearview mirror also sported a compass and a Homelink Universal Transceiver. The meters also now take on a while color. The center stack of devices also boasts new colors under the revamped interior design of the 2011 Murano. Of course, driver entertainment is always a feature for any Murano model. SL models of the 2011 Murano carry a Bose-brand audio system.

This system is comprised of nine powerful speakers and two subwoofers. SV models, on the other hand, have iPod connectivity features that are standard issue, and can also be equipped with a Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System.

Buyers can also install a Music Box hard drive with 9.3GB of storage space for music files alone, as well as an advanced Nissan Navigation System that requires a touch screen.
