2021 Nissan Murano for Sale in West Springfield, MA
The midsized crossover segment of vehicles is rife with competition, yet the Nissan Murano does well to stand out among its rivals. With its unique and modern style, desirable amenities, and spacious interior, it has everything today’s typical driver could want. For model year 2021, the five-passenger Murano’s formerly optional Safety Shield 360 suite of driver-assist technologies is now standard on all trims. Plus, there’s a pair of new paint colors, and the SV Premium Package has been replaced by a Special Edition Package, which includes a panoramic sunroof, 20-inch wheels, a surround-view camera system, simulated-leather upholstery, and heated front seats.
Trims and Powertrain
The two-row, five-passenger 2021 Nissan Murano is offered in four trim levels: S, SV, SL, and Platinum. They get their power from a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 260 hp and pairs up with a continuously variable transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available. Both the FWD and AWD versions get an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. The ’21 Murano is capable of towing a maximum of 1,500 pounds.
Standard and Optional Features
The base S has automatic LED headlights, 18-inch wheels, chrome door handles, power side mirrors with LED turn-signal indicators, keyless entry and ignition, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, three 12-volt power outlets, two USB ports and two USB-C ports, an auxiliary audio input jack, and a 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback with cargo area-accessible levers. It also gets Drive-Assist, an additional LCD display located in the instrument cluster as an auxiliary place to view vehicle data (time, temperature, speed, tire pressure, infotainment system details, and more) so you can keep your eyes more consistently on the road. The SV adds LED fog lights, black roof rails, heated side mirrors, remote start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power-adjustable front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. With the available Special Edition Package, the SV will gain darkened 20-inch wheels, heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, a surround-view camera system, a Special Edition badge, and faux-leather seats.
The SL adds the surround-view monitor and heated front seats, but the panoramic sunroof remains optional. The SL also comes with 20-inch wheels, silver roof rails, a hands-free liftgate, a HomeLink universal transceiver, adjustable ambient interior lighting, navigation, a heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, and heated rear outboard seats. The loaded Platinum receives the panoramic sunroof, in addition to silver-tone 20-inch wheels, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel with memory, climate-controlled front seats, semi-aniline leather-upholstered seats with diamond-quilted inserts, and a smooth leather-wrapped steering wheel.
