So come on in, hear our offer, and then prepare to drive back to Naples in a 2015 Nissan Murano before your kid's soccer game starts!
Let's have a look at how the 2015 Nissan Murano compares to the Ford Edge.
The 2015 Nissan Murano knows how to take command of the road because of its power under the hood -- a 3.5L V6 engine that pumps out 260 hp, which is mated to an Xtronic CVT transmission. FWD is standard, with AWD optional on all models. By contrast, the Ford Edge is also FWD with AWD optional, and you have a choice of 3 powertrains -- the standard 2.0L EcoBoost turbocharged I4 with 245 hp or optional 3.5L V6 with 280 hp. A 2.7L EcoBoost V6 with 350 horses is only available in the Sport. All are coupled with a 6-speed automatic with paddles shifters. Apples to apples, if you're looking at the standard engines on all models, the 2015 Murano edges the Edge in power.
Oftentimes, it's better just to offer one engine because fuel economy stays consistent and doesn't wane with larger powertrains. Here's where the 2015 Nissan Murano excels, with an estimated 21 city/28 highway mpg. By contrast, the standard Edge engine gets less with 20/30, and it only goes down from there with its V6 garnering 18/26. The AWD Edge loses even more mpg while the Murano stays consistent. The 2015 Murano is the clear victor here!
While both the 2015 Murano and Ford Edge are close in price, you get more standard features included on the Edge. On the exterior, you'll appreciate power mirrors with integrated turn signals, and inside the cabin you get dual-zone automatic climate control, NissanConnect with mobile apps, SiriusXM and Nissan Intelligent key which stays in your pocket to open or start the car. None of those features are offered on the Ford Edge except the comparable SYNC, which doesn't include mobile apps.View Inventory
