At O'Brien Nissan of Bloomington, we meet so many families who are looking for a spacious, safe vehicle. We typically point these customers to our inventory of new Nissan SUVs. We have plenty of options, but our sales team is especially excited about the Nissan Rogue, Nissan Murano, and Nissan Pathfinder. All three of these 2018 models are great options for growing families, and they feature the great safety and convenience features you expect from the Nissan brand.
2018 Nissan Rogue

Do you commute to the city a lot? If so, consider the 2018 Nissan Rogue. This compact SUV is small enough to maneuver through congested interstates and narrow urban streets. It's also easier to squeeze into tight parking spaces. The Nissan Rogue comfortably fits five people, and it also boasts 70 cubic feet of cargo space for groceries, sports equipment, and more. This Nissan SUV has a 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve engine, which deftly balances power with fuel efficiency. In fact, the Nissan Rogue gets the best gas mileage of all of these SUVs. So it's great for folks on a budget.

If you're looking for something a bit more powerful, check out the 2018 Nissan Murano. Like the previous model, the Nissan Murano fits five people and boasts about 70 cubic feet of cargo room. However, this model houses a much bigger engine under the hood—a 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine. Drivers can expect to get 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque with this engine, though you will have to sacrifice a bit of fuel efficiency.

If you have a large family, then the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder is probably your best bet. This is the largest SUV of the three, featuring seating for up to seven and nearly 80 cubic feet of cargo room. It also has the most powerful engine of the bunch. Its 3.5-liter Direct Injection Gasoline™ 24-valve engine growls with 284 horsepower.
