Under the Hood

2021 Nissan Murano Silver Sheridan NissanOne of the key areas that will determine the Nissan Murano’s towing capacity is the engine and powertrain it features under the hood. This SUV comes stocked with a 3.5L V6 engine. This configuration is able to pump out an impressive 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque.

The Murano also features an Xtronic CVTÒ. This Continuously Variable Transmission will work in real time to optimize your vehicle’s gear ratios, helping provide premium engine performance and power distribution.

The culmination of these features allows the Murano to sport a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds.* So, you’ll be able to effectively tow the gear you need, whether hauling jet skis to the beach for a fun summer weekend or transporting supplies for your next DIY job.

Added Assistance

2021 Nissan Murano Gray Motion Activated Liftgate Sheridan NissanThe Murano also comes with a number of great technologies that will assist you on the roadways while towing. For example, hill start assist. This feature will help when you’ve come to a stop on a steep incline. When it’s time to transition your foot from the brake pedal to the gas pedal, hill start assist will hold the vehicle so it doesn’t roll backward.

This SUV also comes with standard Blind Spot Warning. This system will keep you informed while on the go, monitoring if any vehicles have entered your blind spot and alerting you to keep you out of harm’s way.

Additionally, the Rear Sonar System and the RearView Monitor will prove helpful when driving in Reverse. They’ll work together to provide added line of sight behind the vehicle as well as help detect when you get too close to obstructions behind you. This could prove particularly handy when loading up that trailer.

Some other driver assistance technologies you’ll want to make note of include:

  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • Intelligent Lane Intervention
  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
  • Cruise Control
  • Intelligent Driver Alertness

Not only will all these features help ensure you’re able to tow, but they’ll also help you do so easily and efficiently.
