2014 Nissan Murano Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy
While the choice between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive will only cost one mile per gallon on the highway, the Murano isn't a particularly efficient crossover on the whole.

Part of that comes down to the 260-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine under the hood. The rest comes down to weight and aerodynamics.

Whatever the cause, however, the 2014 Murano rates its best in front-drive form, at 18 mpg city, 24 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined. With all-wheel drive, the Murano's scores are nearly identical, at 18 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined.

The 2014 Nissan Murano is an average performer at the gas pump.

The Murano won't impress compared to some of the latest four-cylinder crossovers and compact SUVs, but it is on par for V-6 models, and the CVT helps make for reliable, even sometimes impressive real-world numbers in our testing.
