How does the Mitsubishi Outlander compare to the Murano?
Price is a major concern for most car buyers and with that in mind, the base model price of the Outlander is pretty hard to beat coming in at almost $6,000 less than the Nissan Murano. If you were curious how those prices look at the top of the price range, then you may be surprised to learn that the top level GT Outlander trim comes in at over $9,000 less than the top Platinum trim for the Murano.
Price isn’t the only thing to consider when you are looking to keep a little more money in your bank account. You also want to think about fuel economy, and in that metric, the Outlander once again has the Murano beat.
When it comes to interior room, the Outlander is what an SUV is meant to be. With three rows of seating, the Outlander offers room for the whole family. That’s seven passengers. The Murano only offers seating for five. There is no special trim or option package that will give you a third row in the Murano either.
Not only is the Murano lacking in interior capacity, but it is also lacking in towing capacity. With the Outlander, you can tow up to 3,500 pounds with the all-wheel drive equipped GT trim, but the Murano still only offers 1,500 pounds of towing capacity even on its top trim with all-wheel drive.
One vehicle is the clear front-runner in this comparison, and that’s the Outlander. If you need help finding the right Outlander trim here in Libertyville, then come down to Libertyville Mitsubishi. Our team will help you find the perfect Outlander in our extensive inventory.
