About The Nissan Murano

Production of the Nissan Murano began in 2002 with customers getting delivery of their examples in the 2003 model year.

It came a year after the X-Trail model, a compact crossover SUV built on top of the Almera/Sentra chassis – the first of the crossover SUVs from Nissan.

This model though is a mid-size crossover SUV and is built on the Altima chassis and is roughly 7% larger than the X-Trail.

Up until 2007, the Murano was the only crossover SUV from the Japanese company available in the USA as the Rogue was then introduced for the first time.

First Generation

When the Nissan Murano was first launched customers found that it boasted independent suspension all around which led to a comfortable ride and superior handling.

The driver-aids that were included as standard were ahead of their time including traction control and systems to help steer the car in the event of a possible accident.

This led to the car being awarded 5 out 5 stars for all disciplines were tested by the NHTSA, with the rollover risk the only one to not score perfectly at 4 stars.

Second Generation

With the introduction of the second-generation in the 2008 model year, the car had a serious redesign.

An automatic transmission option and turbodiesel engine were added to the order sheet to help it sell further afield instead of just in the USA.

In 2011 a mid-cycle refresh updated the front and rear bumpers and added LED lights all around with new 18-inch alloy wheels added to the Murano.

Third Generation

In 2014 primary production of the new Murano was shifted into the USA itself with a plant adapted in Mississippi for the model.

No longer was the car being marketed in Japan and the option of a diesel engine was removed as the model was now being focused on North America.

A hybrid drivetrain was offered for the model year of 2016 but quickly dropped due to low demand.

During this generation, the Murano was improved vastly in terms of electronic driver-aids with Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 system becoming standard in 2021.


In the 2011 model year, Nissan introduced the first-ever production convertible crossover SUV with four-wheel drive that they called the Murano CrossCabriolet.

This CrossCabriolet shared many of the same mechanical components as the standard version but with a different body and a fabric removable roof.

The roof was automatically hydraulicly operated with dual pop-up roll bars and to compensate for the weaker shell it was reinforced from the A-pillars forward.

In the 2014 model year, the CrossCabriolet version was discontinued as the car went into its third generation.
