Along with its refreshed grille and bumper design, new taillights, a new
18-inch aluminum-alloy wheel design and a number of interior and content
additions, Murano again combines its noteworthy "mobile suite" interior with
advanced technology and a refined, premium driving feel to create a modern
crossover SUV like no other.
Also for 2011, two new models have been
added to the lineup: SV FWD and SV AWD. They join the Murano S FWD, Murano S
AWD, Murano SL FWD, Murano SL AWD, Murano LE FWD and Murano LE AWD to provide
buyers with a wide range of equipment and features to match any need or budget.
Other changes include the addition of one new exterior color, Graphite Blue, and
a new wood grain hue on LE models.
As in 2010, all 2011 Muranos feature a
powerful yet fuel-efficient 260-horsepower VQ-series 3.5-liter DOHC V6 and an
advanced Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) - a combination that
provides a sporty and smooth driving experience. Murano is available in
front-wheel drive or with an Intuitive All-Wheel Drive system, and all 2011
Muranos come standard with Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with a Traction Control
Crafted, Dramatic Styling Refreshed for 2011
Murano's sculpted exterior features a wide front end with a dynamic front fascia
design, a wide grille with new, refreshed style for 2011. Murano is again
available with quad-cylinder style High Intensity Discharge (HID) bi-functional
Xenon projector headlights and standard fog lights on SV, SL and LE models. The
wide hood sweeps into the sculpted, dynamic bodylines, with pronounced wheel
arches and standard redesigned 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels (S, SV, SL) or
20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels (LE) providing an aggressive stance. Large chrome
door handles and available roof rails (standard on SV, SL, LE) add both
functionality and visual accents.
