We have received news regarding Nissan’s third-generation bestselling model, the new Rogue. After a recent slump due to coronavirus, the automaker is happy to release the 2021 Nissan Rogue in hopes of sparking some revenue. Let’s get a closer look at what will be different with the new Rogue models.
Changes to 2021 Nissan Rogue
The 2021 Rogue will be about the same size as the previous model. However, the interior feels roomier and it has a boxier shape. For 2021, the Rogue comes with a 181-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine paired to a CVT, but owners have the choice between front- and all-wheel-drive.
Sadly, as previously reported, there will not be a Nissan Rogue Hybrid model at this time.
Additionally, new models feature some updated driver-assist technology. Look for the standard Safety Shield 360 system, which includes blind-spot warning and automatic emergency brakes. There is also a new ProPILOT Assist cruise control system, as well as a lane-keeping feature.
Inside the cabin, owners can choose the Zero-Gravity seats, which reduce muscle fatigue. There is also the option to add tri-zone automatic climate control and a wireless charging pad. Nissan also added rear cargo area bins that are perfect for holding gallon-sized jugs.
We don’t yet have the pricing for the new Rogue SUV but expect it to be comparable to current models. A 2020 Nissan Rogue starts at $26,395. We also expect some changes to the lineup, with the 2021 Rogue coming in four trim levels: S, SV, SL and Platinum.
Upcoming Nissan Lineup
We await further news regarding the new Nissan lineup but do have one update to share. As of now, we are still expecting the Nissan Ariya electric SUV.
So, what are your thoughts? Do you think this new Rogue model is going to boost car sales, or would you rather stick to an older version?
