In this work, new Bäcklund transformations (BTs) for generalized Liouville equations were obtained. Special cases of Liouville equations with exponential nonlinearity that have a multiplier that depends on the independent variables and first-order derivatives from the function were considered. Two- and three-dimensional cases were considered. The BTs construction is based on the method proposed by Clairin. The solutions of the considered equations have been found using the BTs, with a unified algorithm. In addition, the work develops the Clairin’s method for the system of two third-order equations related to the integrable perturbation and complexification of the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation. Among the constructed BTs an analog of the Miura transformations was found. The Miura transformations transfer the initial system to that of perturbed modified KdV (mKdV) equations. It could be shown on this way that, considering the system as a link between the real and imaginary parts of a complex function, it is possible to go to the complexified KdV (cKdV) and here the analog of the Miura transformations transforms it into the complexification of the mKdV.
