The Nissan Rogue is a compact crossover SUV that debuted in October 2007 for the 2008 model year, produced by the Japanese automaker Nissan. It is the North American version of the European-designed Qashqai, known as the Dualis in Japan and Australia.
The Nissan Rogue made its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 7, 2007. It replaces the Nissan X-Trail in Canada as Nissan's entry-level SUV and the body-on-frame Nissan Xterra in Mexico due to the Smyrna plant freeing capacity for the 2009 Suzuki Equator, but the Xterra continues on sale in the United States and Canada after being withdrawn from the Mexican market after the 2008 model year. An all-new version of the X-Trail, whose platform the Rogue shares, has been launched in Europe, Mexico and elsewhere, but there are no plans to market it in both USA and Canada.
The Rogue is powered by a 170 hp (127 kW; 172 PS), 2.5 L four-cylinder QR25DE engine mated to a standard continuously variable transmission., and comes standard with front-wheel-drive. The Rogue costs less than Nissan's Murano crossover SUV, but at 97.5 cu ft (2.76 m3) vs. 108.8 cu ft (3.08 m3) offers less passenger volume than its V6-powered sibling, and a smaller cargo area of 28.9 cu ft (820 L) vs. 31.6 cu ft (890 L).
The Nissan Rogue comes in only two trims in the United States: S and SL. S is the base model, which comes factory equipped with anti-lock brakes; air conditioning; cruise control; power windows, locks, and mirrors; remote keyless entry; and AM/FM/CD stereo with four speakers and auxiliary input jack.
An optional "360 Value" package on the S model adds 16-inch alloy wheels, auto-dimming rear-view mirror with rear-view monitor, body-color rear spoiler, chrome grille, and rear privacy glass. An S Krōm trim edition includes Krōm integrated body design, center-exit exhaust, body-color rear spoiler, 17-inch brilliant-finish aluminum-alloy wheels, and rear privacy glass.
The Rogue received a mild refresh for the 2011 model year. The revised trim packages are the S and SV. The S is available in a sporty "Krom" edition, which gets special 18-inch polished wheels, a center-exit sport-tuned exhaust, a unique grille and bumper with fog lamps, and other styling tweaks. The SV is available with an optional SL package, adding leather seats, touch screen navigation system and 18" alloy wheels, along with other premium features. On all models, the gauges were restyled and recolored, going from orange to black, and the center dash was redesigned due to the addition of the navigation system, which was not available on 2008-2010 models.
For 2012, Nissan has dropped the "Krom" edition but offers a "Special Edition" package. This package adds 16-inch alloy wheels, a premium audio system, satellite radio, privacy glass, rearview monitor, and fog lamps to the S trim. Nissan also added new aluminum-alloy wheels design, sport mode to the CVT, and one new exterior color. The SL package is still available on the SV but now adds Nissan's "Around View Monitor." With the assists of four cameras, this system creates a composite top-view of the vehicle’s surrounding and displays it through a LCD monitor.
In Canada, the Rogue comes in S and SV trim in front- or all-wheel-drive, and in a top-line SL trim in all-wheel-drive.
Safety features in the Rogue include front airbags, side-impact airbags, side-curtain airbags with rollover sensors, tire-pressure monitor, ABS with brake-assist and electronic brake-force distribution, traction control, and anti-skid control.
