“The Rogue has gone rogue”
That’s how Nissan describes the 2021 Rogue, which will be a reset of sorts for one of the United States’ most popular crossovers. The latest iteration of the Rogue will undergo a full redesign, giving drivers a fresh take on a vehicle that was beginning to feel a bit stale in recent years.
So what will be new with the 2021 Nissan Rogue? It’s almost too much to fit into one blog post, but we’ll do our best to give you details that are currently available.
2021 Nissan Rogue Exterior
For starters, Nissan will transform the exterior of the Rogue. While it’ll still feature that Rogue style we’ve come to know and love, they’re giving it a modern retouch — a contemporary new spoiler, upgraded LED headlights and taillights, a bold V-motion grille and available two-tone designs — that’s sure to turn heads.
2021 Nissan Rogue Interior
The interior of the 2021 Nissan Rogue will also have a new look when it rolls off production lines. One of the most exciting new features is a sleek, 12” digital dashboard, providing drivers with a boatload of customization options to ensure they’re seeing the information that’s most important to them.
The fun doesn’t end there though. Touches like an 8” touchscreen infotainment display, AppleCar/Android Auto integration and convenient storage cubbies all come standard, while additional goodies like leather seating, ambient lighting, a projection heads-up display and a wireless charging pad can be thrown in to increase functionality. Nissan put an emphasis on moving the Rogue into the future with high-tech options, an upscale look and extra comfort.
2021 Nissan Rogue Engine
Not much will change under the hood, as the 2021 Nissan Rogue will again feature a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. With that said, early reports indicate they injected more power into the package, with the standard motor now bringing 181 horsepower to the table. Those looking to take their Rogue out into the wild will also have the option for all-wheel drive with Off-road, Snow, Auto, Eco and Sport modes.
Although official numbers aren’t currently available, Nissan has claimed that the 2021 Rogue will get around 29mph combined for all-wheel drive models, and 30mph combined for front-wheel drive models.
Now, what you’ve been waiting to hear about and what Nissan wants you to know about: the safety technology in the new Rogue.
2021 Nissan Rogue Safety Features
Nissan’s standard Safety Shield® 360 comes equipped with some of the top technology features, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, rear cross-traffic alerts, blind-spot warning, lane departure warning and high-beam assistance. That’s an impressive safety suite, which can be beefed up with add-ons like ProPILOT assist with Navi-link, Nissan’s semi-autonomous driving mode with adaptive cruise control.
2021 Nissan Rogue Trims and Price
Four trims will be available for the 2021 Nissan Rogue — S, SV, SL and Platinum — and the starting MSRP for the base model is estimated to land around $26,000. A release date is not yet known, but the expectation is for the Rogue to hit showroom floors later this fall.
Stay tuned for more updates on the 2021 Nissan Rogue. With its competitive price (estimated), wide array of safety features and modern exterior and interior refresh, it’s sure to be a force among the top crossovers in the 2021 model year.
