Article by Christian A., on August 30, 2010

Back in July, we saw the Euro spec 2011 Murano Facelift and we liked it a lot. Today, Nissan North America made us happy and revealed the U.S. spec version of the 2011 Murano. Set to go on sale in mid-October, the second generation Nissan Murano features a new front grille and bumper, new taillights, a number of interior and content refinements as well as a new 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheel design.

For the 2011 model year, Nissan added two new models, SV FWD and SV AWD, which meand that the Murano range includes a total of eight models providing customers with the widest range ever of equipment and features to match their exact needs and budgets. Besides these additions, the new models introduce a new exterior color dubbed Graphite Blue and a new wood grain hue on Murano LE models.

Under the hood, we will find the standard VQ-series 3.5-liter DOHC V6 delivering 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque on regular unleaded gasoline. The engine is mated to an Xtronic CVT transmission that provides a sporty and smooth driving experience.

Murano is available in front-wheel drive or with an Intuitive All-Wheel Drive system. All the models are offered with Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS). Also, as an option, the new Murano is offered with panel power sliding glass moonroof with 2nd row skylight, adding to its open, airy interior feeling.

Furthermore, the interior was improved to match the needs of the clients. New enhancements include 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 new audio and entertainment features range from the addition of standard iPod connectivity and Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System to SV models to a Bose audio system with nine speakers plus dual subwoofers for SL models.

As an option, Nissan offers an advanced touch screen Nissan Navigation System with 9.3GB Music Box hard drive. The 2011 Murano is offered in eight well-equipped models: S FWD, S AWD, SV FWD, SV AWD, SL FWD, SL AWD, LE FWD and LE AWD.
