2014 All-new Nissan Rogue
First introduced for the 2008 model year, the Nissan Rogue has become a key player in the highly competitive compact SUV market – addressing both the functional and emotional needs of buyers while offering great value. Now, with a complete redesign for the 2014 model year, Rogue challenges convention once again with bold emotive styling, a premium interior created with comfort and multi-tasking in mind, and an array of available affordable techonologies.
For the first time Rogue offers optional 3-row/7-passenger seating, thanks to its improved interior packaging efficiency. Among the many interior highlights are the exceptional passenger and cargo flexibility with its innovative EZ Flex™ seating System. The new Rogue also offers an innovative, class-exclusive* Divide ‘n Hide® Cargo System that provides 18 adjustable variations (two-row models) between the cargo and occupant areas – including out-of-sight storage and a lower deck to handle taller items.
Now assembled in Smyrna, Tennessee, the 2014 Nissan Rogue is the first vehicle to utilize the new jointly developed Nissan/Renault Common Module Family (CMF) platform architecture. The added efficiencies provided by the joint development allow Nissan to deliver unprecedented value in the segment. Rogue is one of a family of new Nissan global compact crossovers, along with the European version, called the Nissan X-TRAIL. As high-volume global growth products, Rogue and X-TRAIL are projected to be available in 190 countries around the world.
Every 2014 Nissan Rogue is equipped with a responsive 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 170 horsepower and best-in-class* 175 lb-ft of torque. The engine is matched with an advanced next-generation Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) with standard Sport Mode switch. With a 40 percent reduction (versus previous generation) in friction loss, along with an improved belt and pulley system, reduced oil churning friction, compact oil pump, new electronic control, wider gear ratio and other enhancements, the new CVT is approximately 10 percent more efficient than the previous-generation CVT.
Fuel economy is projected to be best-in-class* 33 mpg highway for front-wheel drive CVT-equipped models (2014 EPA ratings not available at press time) – representing an 18 percent improvement in highway fuel economy versus the 2013 model. Rogue city fuel economy is rated at 26 mpg, while combined fuel economy is 28 mpg (front-wheel drive models).
