2020 Nissan Murano

The world of midsize SUVs is full of options, and going through them might seem like an impossible task. Luckily, we at Nissan of Elk Grove are here to help! We have put together a comparison between two of Nissan’s most suitable SUVs so that your decision will be a little easier. Read on to learn more about the 2020 Pathfinder and 2020 Murano!

Performance

Both of these SUVs come with powerful inner engines that will reinstill some thrills into your daily commutes. The 2020 Pathfinder’s standard 3.5L direct injection gasoline V6 system produces 284 horsepower and 259 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2020 Murano’s standard 3.5L V6 powertrain performs at a comparable level, emitting 260 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque with each tap of the accelerator. Both systems work with a standard Xtronic CVT® that can provide ample acceleration as you jet down N. 12th Street. The Pathfinder starts with FWD, with an Intelligent 4x4 upgrade. The Murano also starts with FWD, while featuring an Intelligent AWD1 option.

Cargo

Next, let’s compare the interior features of each driving option. The most notable difference between each SUV is that the Pathfinder can seat seven, while the Murano only seats five. Behind the back seat, you’ll find cargo space on each model to make carrying groceries home from Safeway a cinch. The Nissan Pathfinder hosts 16.2 cubic ft.2 of space behind its last row, while the Murano has slightly more space with 32.1 cubic ft.2 of room. In terms of towing cargo, both models still excel. The 2020 Murano provides a 1,500-lb. maximum towing capacity3, while the 2020 Pathfinder boasts a larger 6,000-lb. maximum towing capacity3—perfect for ferrying a small camper or boat to Yosemite National Park!

Exterior

Both of these SUVs start off on top of 18-inch standard wheels, moving up to 20-inch options on higher trims. The 2020 Pathfinder and 2020 Murano each have standard LED daytime running lights, but LED headlights only come standard on the Murano. They require an upgrade on the Pathfinder. However, the tables turn when it comes to roof rails2. The Pathfinder comes standard with them, which is perfect for storing unwieldy cargo. For this same feature on the Murano, you must spring for an extra-cost trim level. One thing that can be said about both of these models is that they have convenient exterior accessories. For example, both of these Nissan SUVs come with standard UV-reducing solar glass, available heated power outside mirrors, and an optional dual-panel panoramic moonroof.

Now that you’ve looked at the 2020 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2020 Nissan Murano near Sacramento, CA, come in and see both models in person at Nissan of Elk Grove! We have convenient hours on all seven days of the week, so visit anytime. We also provide complimentary car washes for all automobiles bought at our dealership, so you’ll leave in a squeaky clean ride!

The whole team was great! They really worked hard for me to get me the best deal and paymentplan within my budget. The whole team went above and beyond for me. They even provided me with snacks when I was hungry. I didn't feel pressured. The whole staff was beyond friendly and even followed up with me to make sure I was enjoying my new car and understood how to use all of the amazing features. I also get free car washes and my first oil change is free! I couldn't be happier that I went to them. Greatest car buying experience ever!

I am still in shock over my experience. I had been looking for a car for several month but had a very tight budget. My credit score was less than perfect. I met with Angelo and witin 10 mins my guard was down. He showed me cars that had features I wanted but he could tell I was not In love. I left to think and look around and 4 days later Angela to the time to call me to saiy I have the perfect car for you. The color is perfect, i got my moon roof, my back up cameras, compass, butt warmers,Bose speakers and my oayments are lower than we discussed previously and the total cost of the vehicle was more than $1000 less with more options!! Angelo treated me like his one and only customer. I will tell everyone I know to buy fron Nissan of Elk Grove and ask for Angelo!!

We really liked the service from the beginning when we first started looking for a car and searched online. Nissan was the only Dealership that kept calling us persistently and suggested options. Shailene was a great help in getting the car. We appreciated her approach and her friendly advise; something that the Toyota Dealership lacked when we went there before coming to Nissan. Great Team including your Manager David.

I had been referred to Elk Grove Nissan by truecar.com, and I was connected with Blake Nero. Blake was fantastic and we had multiple emails and texts go back and forth over what I was looking for, what I wanted to spend and my trade-in. He even got in touch with me on his day off to make sure we were still on track with our appt. From the moment I arrived he treated me like an old friend, and even when I got testy during the negotiations he took it in stride. Joe in finance was good too, and I was even more difficult with him - and he stayed courteous, respectful and friendly. 5 hours after walking in the door I was able to drive off in the red Rogue I had been wanting so badly. Blake even chased me down when I left my garage opener in my trade-in, he truly went above AND beyond any sales guy I have ever met. I'd highly recommend Blake to anyone looking to buy a Nissan.

It is a pleasure to do business again with Warren Santos. He had me working with Khanh Ho during the process and Khanh is one excellent sales person. No pressure dealing with him. He worked so hard to provide the service I needed. He is very patient and listens to what I was looking for in a car. I highly recommend Warren and Khanh whenever you think of buying your next car. This is my fourth car with this dealership and they take good care of their customers. Thank you Warren and Khanh.

Jerry Reynolds, Carprousa, referred me to John, owner of Elk Grove Nissan. After explaining to John Driebe, Elk Grove Nissan owner, my frustrated 10/2015 car buying experience with Future Nissan Roseville. He said he would introduce me to his staff to assist me with my 2010 Murano LE problem. Next morning, John follow through. Intructed staff to keep him informed to outcome of my visit. Marie Angulo and Tommy Davis listened to my car concerns and request for extended warranty on payments. Tommy completed extended warranty document included monthly payment. And sent me home in a free rental car to return next day after my Murano was checked out my the auto shop. Grateful, Kathy Berry

So I get a phone call from a gentleman saying to come in and get an upgrade if I liked. Originally before he called I was already thinking about buying another vechile. Get out of the car and was greeted by Enith Camacho the sales and lease consultant. I was pleased by her smile and hello. Made me fill at home right away. So I explained what I was looking for and the price range (payment) each month and was very satisfy with her expertise. I never met a lady that new so much and had patience for every question and an answear for every question. I hope she recieve the whole commission of the sale she deserve it all. But yes in a few more years when I buy another vechile I hope Enith Camacho is still working for Nissan of Elk Grove so we can work together. Great job and wish you the best in the future of employment. Thanks, Edward Cortez

I have came to this dealership about 7 years ago and had a great experience. I wanted to purchase a new car and I knew I was going to come back. I did some online shopping and a few minutes later Nissan contacted me. I put in a application online and when I went in everything went quickly. I was so happy with my purchase and the help of Angelo and Shay. They were the best!! Thank you Nissan of Elk Grove!!

I came to Nissan of Elk Grove to buy a car, but they did more than get me the Car I wanted. They are a truly an A+ dealership with an amazing and strong staff. The General Mgr Marco was such a delight to work with, he explained everything seamlessly and assured me I could contact him if I ever needed anything in the future. Warren was out of this world amazing, he got me the price I wanted without hesitation and I really felt like he was working for me. The salesman Angelo was just a peach of a man and made me feel at home. The finance portion was like nothing I have ever experienced, they are on top of it all. My paper work went fast and I felt very comfortable and knowledgeable with everything I signed. Overall my experience was like I was working with my Bestfriends! This is the place to come for all of your car buying needs. Hands down the BEST OF THE BEST.

My wife and I were debating if we should get a car and went to visit Christian, and even though we did not buy that same day; my wife and I went home and spoke about how nice and non-pushy he was. He showed us respect and worked hard to get us were we needed to be. He built a relationship with my wife and I and the day we decided to buy, he made the process smooth and simple. I appreciate his attitude and his understanding of our concerns and needs.

I was a first time new car buyer, so as you could imagine i was very nervous about making such a big decision but the guys here really know their stuff. Sam was patient with me and took the time to find a car that hand everything I was looking for. I chose a versa note and I am absolutely in love with it. Being a first time buyer it was difficult to get approved right away but the Finance manager Jambert put in so much time to talk to banks and get me a loan. They seriously went so far above and beyond I really lucked out coming here!
