TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Nissan Murano

Nissan Murano Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2015 Within today's Nissan, fuel economy seems a far higher priority than performance. The Murano's base engine remains a naturally aspirated, port-injected 3.5-liter V6 good for 265 horsepower. In some applications Nissan's V6 can be thirsty. But in the Murano it's somehow efficient. Much credit is likely due the CVT (continuously variable transmission). Together the pair achieves EPA ratings of 21 mpg city, 28 mpg highway with either drive train--very good for a crossover of this size and power. Ford also offers a naturally-aspirated, port-injected 3.5-liter V6, but rated for 280 horsepower. Paired with a six-speed automatic it manages only 18/26 with front-wheel drive (FWD) and 17/25 with all-wheel drive (AWD)--well short of the Nissan's figures. A new performance engine, a 315-horsepower turbocharged, direct-injected 2.7-liter V6, earns ratings similar to the 3.5's. The new base engine, a 245-horsepower turbocharged, direct-injected, 2.0-liter four-cylinder, does about as well as the Nissan's V6, 20/30 with FWD and 20/28 with AWD. But a four never sounds or feels as a good as a V6, even if it is as strong. If we compare apples to apples, the Nissan scores a clear win on fuel economy. I wasn't able to drive either car on my regular route, so I cannot comment yet on real-world fuel economy. My experiences in other Nissans and Fords suggest that the Nissan's advantage will be larger in typical driving. see full Nissan Murano review

My previous vehicle was a Mazda Tribute which was a smaller SUV by comparison. Exact same type of driving got me about 17 mpg vs 21 mpg w/the Murano. I get better mileage than the EPA lists for the vehicle because I hypermile when I can. see full Nissan Murano review

Once you are at a steady speed, the MPG climb to above 30mpg easily, whether at 30 MPH or 75MPH. My average mileage is above 24MPG- 5 MPG better than the EPA estimate see full Nissan Murano review

Once at a constant speed, the MPG hovers between 27-32- much better then the EPA estimates. My average MPG with combined city and highway driving is 24- 5MPG better than the EPA tests. see full Nissan Murano review

My average is well above the EPA estimate of 19- mine is closer to 24-25, with combo city and highway driving. Once at a steady speed, the MPGs hover at 27-33 at both 40mph and 75 mph see full Nissan Murano review

Fuel economy in town has been below 16MPG. Itís not bad, but the lack of economy does not deliver exciting performance as it does with other similarly sized SUVís that get comparable mileage. see full Nissan Murano review

For a midsize SUV is very good at 22-23MPG on the HWY. But still is not much, especially at $3.50 per gallon! see full Nissan Murano review

Fuel economy is fine for me. I get 22-24mpg without the trailer, a light gas peddle foot, and under 70mph, But if you accelerate fast and drive fast without reguard to MPG you will easily slip into the 18mpg range. With trailer MPG is 13-15. see full Nissan Murano review

since day one. I did the calculation about the Fuel Economy and it never went over 16MPG. the computer on board is not correct when it tells you 21 or 23 MPG I drove this car since it has 5 miles till now which is almost 100,000 Miles. Fuel Economy 15MPG see full Nissan Murano review
