First we’ll tell you about the similarities, and there are plenty. Not only are the Murano and Pathfinder priced in the same range at their basic S level, but they share a power plant as well in the form of a 260-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 that offers 240 pound-feet of torque and achieves a very similar fuel economy rating, with a single mile per gallon difference between the two models in both city and highway driving conditions. Both models also come with the Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that’s been helping Nissan vehicle across the board get such great mileage.

The one major difference between these two models is the size and capacity. Depending on what your needs are, this will likely be the deciding factor between choosing the 2015 Nissan Murano or the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder. While the Murano is a more traditional crossover with seating for up to five passengers, the Pathfinder’s got a third row allowing for seven total passengers. Thanks to this extra space, the Pathfinder is also able to hold another ten cubic feet of cargo with all seats folded down. The Pathfinder also has a considerably higher towing capacity, able to tow up to 5,000 lbs when properly equipped. The Murano maxes out at 1,500 lbs.


The Murano does have its advantages in terms of technology, with a slightly more advanced interior that includes SiriusXM Satellite Radio compatibility and standard Bluetooth connectivity. We’ll give you a chance to check both models out and see how they differ when you come see us at Continental Nissan for your test drive.
