Expert Quotes:

a willing and surprisingly communicative partner in daily driving
Edmunds

Murano has few peers for smooth throttle response around town and in hilly terrain

this one's still a blast on a canyon road

The 2014 Nissan Murano is delightfully simple when it comes to its performance and powertrain, as there's just one choice: whether you want front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

Front-wheel drive is the more common choice, while all-wheel drive is a better pick for regions with more inclement weather, particularly in the winter. All-wheel drive comes standard on the Murano LE, but is available on all trim levels.

The engine shared across the Murano range is Nissan's familiar and capable 3.5-liter VQ-family engine, rated in this application at 260 horsepower. It's a dynamic, mellifluous engine that's ready for everything the Murano's soft, comfortable suspension tune can throw at it--and more.

A single transmission option underpins the full Murano range: a continuously variable transmission, or CVT. The CVT is simple to use: just put it in drive and go. Unlike some of Nissan's other models, the CVT in the Murano gets no programmed simulated gear points for more aggressive acceleration.

Steering in the Murano is responsive, and the ride absorbs road irregularities with ease. On the whole, it's a pleasant, easy-going machine, day in and day out.

If you're so inclined, the Murano can also be tasked with light towing duty, up to a maximum of 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.

Conclusion

The 2014 Nissan Murano delivers smooth cruising and confident acceleration.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
