2021 Nissan Rogue for Sale in Warwick, RI
The Nissan Rogue is one of the most popular compact crossovers as well as Nissan’s best-selling model, but there’s more big stuff to come. It’s been redesigned for 2021 and should hit the dealerships in the fall of 2020. While redesigns are always newsworthy, it’s even more so in this case since the Rogue is the first of five redesigns that Nissan will introduce for 2021. All of those vehicles will be significantly revamped with major changes and exciting improvements, including heightened body rigidity and finer-fitting exterior panel connections for enhanced aerodynamics. Besides a fully restyled interior and exterior appearance, the 2021 Rogue is built on a new platform, it will have the most standard safety technologies in its class, and it’s been reinforced with more high-strength steel. There’s also a brand-new loaded trim called the Platinum. Let’s take a look at the other details that Nissan has released.
The 2021 Rogue’s new platform has the same wheelbase length as the previous version, but its overall length is 1.5 inches shorter and it’s expected to weigh 100 pounds less, leading to better maneuverability. The refreshed 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine brings with it an increase of 11 horsepower and 6 lb.-ft. of torque, and it will combine with an efficient continuously variable transmission to improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 mpg, depending on the trim and drivetrain (either standard front-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive). This should put the 2021 Nissan Rogue at roughly 28 to 30 mpg combined.

Nissan Rogue Trim Levels
Nissan has extensively redesigned their best-selling Rogue crossover for the 2021 model year. This commanding, adventure-ready vehicle returns to market with substantial upgrades, led by a re-engineered platform. The Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system has also been improved. It works in conjunction with the new Vehicle Motion Control system to enhance overall driving dynamics. The engine is now more powerful and efficient, plus there’s a larger and more practical “family hub” interior with a floating center console and unique two-level dashboard. Other highlights are the class-leading list of standard driver aids through Nissan Safety Shield 360, the debuting Platinum trim level, and wider-opening rear doors.
Nissan is also pleased to announce that its new available ProPilot Assist with Navi-link system is continuing the exciting advance toward semi-autonomous driving capability. ProPilot Assist with Navi-link uses sophisticated mapping technologies and route “learning” to anticipate turns and other events on the road ahead. It can even manipulate the vehicle’s speed based on traffic signs. Put simply, this all-new premium midsized crossover is versatile, fun, and edgy, meaning that its “Rogue” moniker was chosen appropriately.
Powertrain and Fuel Economy
The Rogue’s source of power is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (181 hp and 181 lb.-ft. of torque) working with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Nissan’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system is available on all trims, and it features five selectable drive modes: Off-road, Snow, Standard, Eco, and Sport. The FWD models return an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, while the AWD models achieve 25 city/32 highway.

In addition to those, Intelligent Driver Alertness (which monitors driver fatigue and sounds off a warning to pay attention and/or stop to rest) and rear door alert (which alerts the driver as they leave the vehicle if a sleeping child or pet may have been forgotten in the back seat) are also standard.

Innovative Engineering, Safety and a Digital Overhaul
Nissan designed the Rogue’s exterior and interior to complement the fun and adventurous people who like to drive it. It features a floating roof, updated V-motion grille, unique headlight design, and U-shaped bodyside highlights, giving it an iconic and elite appearance. The Rogue’s new look is not just for show, as features like the 3D tire deflectors, active grille shutter, and enhancements to its aerodynamics.
The ’21 Rogue will premiere some significantly cutting-edge technology. Nissan has labeled the cabin as a “family hub,” with useful features like a 4-door Nissan Intelligent Key, 90-degree opening rear doors, a “butterfly” opening front center console, and rear seats inspired by NASA zero-gravity low-fatigue spinal support seats. There’s also a new motion-activated tailgate for easier access to the cargo area. Some of the exciting multimedia changes include a 12.3-inch digital dashboard gauge cluster, a floating 9.0-inch infotainment touchscreen (the largest in the segment), and a 10.8-inch head-up display, which is one of among the largest in this crossover class.

Nissan ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link will also be available on the SL and Platinum. This new safety system uses GPS mapping to control the speed and lane control of the car based on curves, interchanges, junctions, and even traffic signs.
