Nissan Launches Bolder Friendlier 2021 Rogue Compact SUV
It is not too often these days that a car company introduces a new model that is actually smaller than the one it replaces. But, that is the case with the all-new, third-generation Nissan Rogue compact crossover utility. It loses about 1 1/2 inches in length and a hair of height to its predecessor. But, don’t let size fool you since to the eyes the Rogue actually looks larger, with a more upright cabin with flatter doors, fewer swoopy fender lines, and the brand's now signature floating roof design. It all looks rather more useful which will be key to its family popularity. Indeed, the boxier profile actually increases cargo capacity to 74.1 cu. ft., a gain of 4.1, despite the reduction in length.
Big changes of the interior as well. The new “family hub” front and rear environments are not only very user friendly in appearance and execution, but also much more premium in style and materials. With a multitude of safety and convenience technology standard and available, getting vehicle information is also easy, thanks to the 2021 Rogue’s digital display integration featuring three high-tech displays. Every 2021 Rogue features a standard 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine with Nissan’s Direct Injection Gasoline system. Horsepower is rated at 181, an increase of 11 hp. Torque is increased by 6 lb.-ft. to 181 lb.-ft. with a CVT transmission in front and all-wheel drive. The 2021 Nissan Rogue will arrive at dealers this fall.
