The 2020 Murano’s Power and Handling
The 2020 Nissan Murano is one of the most plus-riding crossover SUVs on the market with a suspension that easily handles road imperfections. It is a refined and capable highway commuter or around-town runner. The Murano comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that is rated with 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired to Nissan’s Xtronic continuously variable automatic transmission, which replicates traditional shifts well and allows you to throw the transmission lever into a manual mode. This transmission works better than most of its competition. This engine is also a crowd-favorite because it is fine with regular unleaded gasoline and doesn’t have an idle start/stop system. All Muranos comes standard with front-wheel-drive, but all-wheel-drive is available at all trim levels.
