The Nissan Murano has been in production for nearly two decades, initially defining the car-chassis crossover back in 2003. The model has continued to be a forerunner in the two-row crossover segment since then, and the 2022 Nissan Murano's for sale in Tuscaloosa, Alabama are no exception.
Avant Garde Style
The 2022 Nissan Murano is immediately recognizable on dealer lots, as it boasts an Avant Garde style that few other crossovers compare with. A V-shaped grille defines the crossover from the front, and full LED lights carry that statement all along the sides and back.
For the truly aesthetically inclined, a Midnight Edition package adds black exterior accents, illuminated doorsill bottoms and 20-inch black wheels. Magnetic Black Pearl, Brilliant Silver Metallic, Gun Metallic, Pearl White and Deep Blue Pearl make it easy to get a color you like.
Powerful V7 Performance
Beneath the sleek hood lies a standard 3.50-liter V6 engine that delivers 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque -- nearly double that of some smaller cars. The engine’s power is routed through an automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) that ensures efficient shifting for a smooth ride.
That power is transferred to on-road forward thrust via either front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). Front-wheel drive is sufficient for driving around Alabama roads even in winter, but all-wheel drive is helpful if you’re ever on dirt roads, fields, boat ramps or other more slippery surfaces.
Complete Smartphone Integration
As vehicles become increasingly smart, Nissan is making it easy to keep up with industry standards for smartphone integration. You don’t have to pay extra for full app access, as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included on all trim levels. The standard interface is also an 8-inch touchscreen, which makes it easy to select the tech features you want to use.
You’ll find built-in navigation on higher trims. This isn’t a feature that you have to go for, however, as iOS and Android navigation apps can also provide directions.
Some of the higher trims do come with an 11-speaker Bose audio system, which is worth upgrading for if you like to turn the stereo up.
For convenience, keyless entry, push-button start and dual-zone climate control are also all standard.
Finely Appointed Interior
When inside the 2022 Murano, fine appointments give a sense of luxury. Even on the lower trims, aluminum and faux wood accents dress up the crossover. Available leather upholstery and/or seat inserts can further upgrade the cabin.
In the back, a generous 32.1 cubic feet of cargo space can expand to 67 cubic feet if no one’s sitting in the rear seats. That’s enough room for suitcases, the kids’ college gear or even a harp (should someone in the family play one).
Stellar Safety Ratings
Of all the two-row crossovers that are now available, the 2022 Nissan Murano most importantly leads the class in safety. It received the highest possible marks in all of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's crash and other tests, earning the 2022 Murano a Top Safety Pick+ designation.
