What is the Nissan Rogue?

The Nissan Rogue is a crossover SUV. First released in 2007, The new vehicle bore the familiar look of other Nissan models while certainly shaking up the line. The Rogue originally debuted as a 5-passenger CUV and came with only one engine option โ€“ a 2.5-liter four-pot - but had the option of FWD or AWD. The Rogue quickly became popular among Nissan shoppers and would soon make exciting developments.

The 2010 model year saw the introduction of the Rogue Krom edition, sporting (pun intended) a new, sportier version of the Rogue. The Rogue Krom edition featured a more stylish, compact exterior with 17-inch wheels and a center-exit sport-tuned exhaust. Inside, the Krom edition offered 58 cubic feet of cargo space. One of the most notable things about the Krom edition was its choice of colors. Though it only offered three options, buyers could choose from Venom Red, Wicked Black, or Gotham Gray. The name of the game with the Krom edition is style.

"The Rogue is one of Nissan's best-selling vehicles, and value has always been part of this equation," said Nissan marketing vice-president Jon Brancheau when in 2013, the Rogue won Edmunds' Best Retained Value Award. Edmunds is a renowned car shopping website used by almost 18 million people, and the award is given based upon "the sales-weighted average MSRP of all available styles (excluding destination charges) of that model's body type." Brancheau put it concisely when he said: "Customers recognize that they're getting lasting value from the Rogue's combination of dramatic exterior style, breakthrough technology such as class-exclusive Around View Monitor and interior utility, storage space and functionality. Earning this 2013 Best Retained Value Award accolade from Edmunds.com further solidifies Rogue's place in a very competitive segment." The Rogue's value pays off.

The Rogue was given a makeover for the 2014 model year. The vehicle gained a whole row of seats when the 2014 model introduced optional third-row seating for a total of seven passengers. The model also modified the exterior by adding LED lights, but that was not the biggest technological addition. The 2014 model introduced the Divide-N-Hide cargo system, which allows for 18 configurations between cargo and passenger areas, as well as NissanConnect technology. Aside from setting record sales, the 2014 model also brought home many awards, including:

  • Kelley Blue Book's "12 Best Family Cars" and "10 Best SUVs under $25,0000"
  • "Most Fuel-Efficient Small Crossover" in Kiplinger's "2014 Best Value Awards"
  • "Must Test Drive" by AutoTrader
  • "Best Crossover" in 2014 Parents Magazine
  • Edmunds.com "10 Best Family Cars"
  • "Best-In-Class Mid-Size Crossover SUV" in AutoPacific 2014 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards

The 2014 Rogue also received the highest rankings in J.D. Power 2014 U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout (APEAL) Study. On top of all of this, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Rogue its "Top Safety Pick Plus," which is their highest available ranking.

All this to say, 2014 was a good year for the Rogue.

Once again, the Rogue went through significant changes in 2017 when it received a new exterior design, heightened interior technology, and fashion, and new engine options. The real star of 2017, however, was the Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition. Only 5,400 vehicles were produced (5,00 in the United States and 400 in Canada).

"Based on the 2017 Rogue SV grade level with Sun and Sound Touring Package (Panoramic Moonroof and Bose audio) and offered in front-wheel and all-wheel drive, it features signature LED headlights, black grille and lower finisher, black rear door finisher, black roof rails and door handles, D-pillar "Rebel Alliance" and "Galactic Empire" logo decals, "Star Wars" logo clear rear bumper protector and Rogue One logo badging on the front doors.

Inside, special features include logo carpeted floor mats, "Star Wars" logo illuminated kickplates, "Rebel Alliance" and "Galactic Empire" logos in cupholder inserts and interior accent lighting. It is offered in just two colors โ€“ Magnetic Black and Glacier White โ€“ and one interior color, charcoal." (Nissan LA, 216)."

The Rogue continues to grow and continues to adapt to the needs of our drivers. Today, the Rogue is in its best form yet. But, before we talk about the latest model, we'd like to address the difference between the Rogue and its counterpart, the Rogue Sport.

The Rogue Sport

The Rogue Sport is a more compact version of the Rogue, which has overall smaller dimensions and smaller cargo space, with sharper maneuverability. While they may share a name, these are two different models built on entirely different powertrains and platforms. The Rogue Sport is also noticeably more affordable than the full-size Rogue, making it a solid choice for shoppers on a budget.

If the price difference isn't an issue, there are still a few reasons to choose one over the other. Overall, the Rogue Sport tends to be more popular among single drivers and city-dwellers, as its more compact design makes it easier to navigate city streets. However, families will certainly prefer the larger Rogue for its more comfortable back seat and additional cargo space.

2021 Rogue

Fully redesigned, the 2021 Rogue is intentionally and specifically designed to make family life easier. The Rogue "Family Hub" includes doors that open to nearly 90-degrees in order to make installation and removal of a car seat easier. The third row also allows for car seat installation in any of the three seats, so passengers are able to ride on either side of the car seat if it is installed in the middle. Additionally, the center console now bears a "butterfly" design, meaning that it opens on either side rather than straight up, making it easier to pass items back and forth between the front and the back.

With safety at the forefront of the brand, Nissan Safety Shield 360 is now standard in the 2021 Rogue. The Safety Shield 360 package includes features such as:

  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • High Beam Assist
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning

Older kids will be able to rest well on road trips with the rear seats offering Zero Gravity low-fatigue spinal support seating inspired by NASA. Plus, with tri-zone climate control, everyone will be able to be comfortable at just the right temperature.

While the 2021 Rogue offers excellent technology features such as wireless charging, Apple Carplay, Android Auto, and Google Maps, its starring technology feature is ProPILOT Assist with Navi-Link. ProPILOT is a technology that combines steering assist with Intelligent Cruise Control to assist with acceleration, braking, and steering in all driving environments. By combining ProPILOT with Nissan's Navigation System, the vehicle is even able to adjust speed for curves, exits, and obstacles ahead of time.
