O.K. Not exactly a direct competitor to the Murano unless one opts for the 2.0L turbo in upper trims. The new base engine is a 3 cyl turbo with cylinder deactivation so it can run on only 2 cylinders for better fuel economy. I couldn't help but think what's next...A V twin from Harley Davidson with cylinder deactivation so it could run on only one cylinder???? Just being a little facetious.
