Announced Nissan Rogue Hybrid Price Crushes Competing Toyota RAV4

The Nissan Rogue is one of the most popular compact SUVs on the market, offering an excellent balance of fuel efficiency and performance that drivers adore. Add that balance to clever cargo space and top-notch tech, and you have a winner.

In the coming year, we will even see a hybrid edition of the Nissan Rogue – which, as it turns out, will be quite affordable. The model will even be more than $2,000 cheaper than the only other hybrid model in its class, the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid.

You can own the 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid for just $27,180, saving you tons of money at the dealership and continuing to save you money with every mile you drive. Additionally, you will be lowering your personal impact on the environment.

Additionally, the Nissan Rogue Hybrid will be available in two trim levels, each of which can be purchased with all-wheel drive, for an extra $4,920. But take note – even the top Rogue trim level, the SL, is cheaper than the base level of the Toyota RAV4.

2017 Nissan Rogue Sport Debuts in Detroit, Coming This Spring

Fresh off of seeing the Nissan Rogue break the automaker’s all-time single-month sales record in December with 40,477 units shipped, Nissan has revealed a new offering geared toward crossover shoppers who want something just a bit smaller: the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport.

“The new Rogue Sport is a perfect addition to the red-hot Rogue lineup, which is also adding a first-ever Rogue Hybrid model for 2017,” said Michael Bunce, vice president of Product Planning for Nissan North America. “With Rogue Sport’s slightly smaller dimensions and sporty maneuverability, it’s ideal for singles or couples without kids—or empty nesters—who want a sportier vehicle and can live with a little less cargo capacity than the current Rogue offers.”

Watch: Michael Bunce Leads the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport Debut

Held up to the 2017 Rogue, the Nissan Rogue Sport boasts a 2.3-inch shorter wheelbase, 12.1-inch shorter length, 0.1-inch shorter width, and 5.6-inch shorter height, all of which serves to make it easier for navigating through cities and pulling into tight parking spots. Still, the Rogue Sport is comparable to its larger sibling in terms of headroom, legroom, hip room, and shoulder room, and its max cargo area is still impressive with up to 22.9 cubic feet with the second row upright and 61.1 cubic feet with the second row folded flat.

The Rogue Sport comes standard with a 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve inline-four mated to an Xtronic transmission, which doles out 141 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque. The Rogue Sport will be offered with Nissan Intelligent Safety Shield tech, including Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Intelligent Cruise Control, and Forward Emergency Braking.

Set to be released this spring, the Rogue Sport will be offered in S, SV, and SL trim levels. Stay tuned for more information on this hot new crossover as it is released!

2014 Nissan Rogue Adds High-Tech Driving Features

2014 Nissan Rogue

2014 Nissan Rogue

Nissan engineers wanted the 2014 Nissan Rogue to be easier and more fun to drive. To achieve this, they incorporated state-of-the-art driving technologies, including Active Trace Control, Active Engine Braking, and Active Ride Control. All of these features come standard on the new 2014 Rogue.

This technology, “adds to the performance feel of the vehicle because it makes it easier to drive,” said Nissan engineer Matthew Hart. “This kind of system is typically what you see on performance-oriented vehicles.”

Active Trace Control helps the car follow your intended path. The system uses something called Corner Brake Assist to make it easier to turn sharp corners while steering less. Active Under Steer also works as part of this package and also works to help you follow your driving line.

Helping drivers feel more confident when they have to brake quickly is the Active Engine Braking. It gives you subtle assistance by slowing down the engine.

Active Ride Control helps smooth out the bumps on the road. Once you drive over a bump in the Rogue, the system automatically applies the brakes and makes adjustments to the engine torque to reduce the “head bobble” feeling you using experience while going over bumps.

2014 Nissan Rogue Has Advanced NissanConnect

The 2014 Nissan Rogue has numerous advanced technology systems that are designed to help differentiate the Rogue from its competition. The NissanConnect system stands out without standing out. The standard NissanConnect connected car services system combines hands-free technology, the owner’s or even passengers’ smartphones and an optional touch-screen display to help connect the Rogue to the outside world. It can load custom music libraries, social networks, or navigation, traffic weather or other information sites. This is part of Rogue’s affordable technology concept and NissanConnect comes with three years of complimentary service for the basic apps package.

Pierre Loing, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc., said “As demand for in-vehicle connectivity systems continues to grow, Nissan is taking the lead in providing affordable, use-friendly technology under the NissanConnect banner with critical core vehicles such as the 2014 Nissan Rogue, Altima, Sentra and Versa Note. We expect more than 1.5 million Nissan vehicles will be connected by 2015, with our cloud-based model allowing for periodic updates and the launch of new apps throughout ownership of the vehicles.”

Loing went on to add “Part of the NissanConnect system’s innovative design is the flexibility to introduce new apps throughout the ownership experience, including a range of projected upcoming music, social networking, entertainment and travel apps. It’s another example how the all-new Nissan Rogue delivers ‘Innovation that Excites’- empowering customers to personalize their driving experience. Users are able to “check in” on Facebook to share location with their social network – or navigate to where their friends have checked in. In navigation-equipped vehicles they can also use Google to find new restaurants or navigate any city like a local.”
