Both vehicles start with a big V6 engine as the base engine. In the Murano, a 3.5-liter V6 turns out 260 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque. This is also the only engine offered.

With a base 3.6-liter V6 engine, the Grand Cherokee easily outpaces the Murano with 293 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. But wait – there’s more! The base engine is followed by three other engine options.
- 5.7-liter V8 – 360 hp – 390 lb.-ft. of torque
- 6.4-liter HEMI V8 – 475 hp – 470 lb.-ft. of torque
