Model Preview

The Nissan Murano will continue for the 2022 with no significant changes. The current Murano design has been around since 2015, but it's still an expressive midsize crossover with a premium feel inside. A 2019 refresh brought LED exterior lighting, new wheels, and available quilted leather seating. The Nissan Safety Shield 360 driver assistance system became standard on most models last year.

Although its muscular styling isn't as daring as it once was, the Murano remains unconventionally attractive. The Murano seats five in pleasant surroundings and offers up to 67 cubic feet of cargo space. The sporty roofline curbs overall utility. Boxier competitors can carry more, and some offer a third row.

Every 2022 Murano will come with an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, four USB ports, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The top two trims, SL and Platinum, also carry navigation and an 11-speaker Bose sound system. The Platinum offers a high level of luxury for this class with standard features like diamond-quilted semi-aniline leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, and a panoramic sunroof.

Nissan Murano

Nissan's familiar 3.5-liter V6 will remain under the hood of every Murano. The engine produces 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) sends power to the front wheels. All-wheel drive is available on all Murano trims. The CVT helps the Murano achieve admirable efficiency for a six-cylinder crossover. All version are EPA-rated at 20 miles per gallon city, 28 mpg highway, and 23 combined. The Murano's towing capacity is stuck at 1,500 pounds, far lower than other vehicles of this type.

As in the previous year, most trims will come fully equipped with active safety technology, including adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, and front and rear automatic emergency braking. These features are still optional the base S model. A surround-view camera system is reserved for the SL and Platinum. The current Murano receives a five-star overall safety rating from NHTSA.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official on-sale date for the 2022 Murano but based on Nissan production documents, we are expecting a late 2021 or early 2022 arrival.

Nissan hasn't announced pricing yet, but we expect little change from the 2021 Murano, which ranges from $33,605 to $46,705 including destination.

The Murano will face competitors such as the Ford Edge, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chevrolet Blazer, and Honda Passport.
