The newly re-designed 2014 Nissan Rogue gives Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, and Toyota RAV4, a run for their money! High style, high tech, and low pricing makes the new Rogue the winner!
 
Nissan today debuted the all-new 2014 Nissan Rogue. For the first time, assembly of this vehicle moves to the U.S. at Nissan's Smyrna, Tenn. plant. More than 900 jobs were added to support the production.
 
This is the company's fifth totally redesigned model to come out in the last 18 months.  The 2014 Rogue follows the all-new Altima, Pathfinder, Sentra and Versa Note. Nissan Division sales, spurred by gains in these top-selling, core-models rose 24.3 percent in August to 108,614 units. This was an August record.
 
"It was time to refresh our model line. When we went through the 2008 financial crisis, we delayed several products. Our product portfolio was five to six years old, and it was time to bring out the new ones," said Carla Bailo, senior vice president, research and development for Nissan.
 
The Rogue is Nissan's second best-selling vehicle in the U.S. lineup.  This new model has bold new styling, a premium interior meant for multi-tasking, and an array of available technologies.
 
NissanConnect with Navigation is one available option.  NissanConnect Apps can now come on this model for the first time.  Class-exclusive Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Warning are also available, so drivers can see 360 degrees around the car and even get warned when something is in the way.
 
"There is growing demand for compact SUVs around the world due to their user-friendly combination of right-sized exteriors, flexible interior utility and low environmental impact," said Fred Diaz, divisional vice president, Sales and Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc. "With this exciting, innovative, all-new design, Nissan is aggressively targeting increased sales and share in every market. By sharing development costs, while adapting powertrains, designs and equipment offerings for each specific region, Nissan has been able to add features and technologies while keeping prices affordable. No matter the specific market nameplate, it's a guaranteed winner."
 
The 2014 Rogue's new exterior design provides a premium, high-quality look and feel with available LED headlights, standard LED signature daytime running lights, outside mirrors with integrated turn signals and rear spoiler. Also available are a power panoramic moonroof and a power rear liftgate.
 
For the first time, Rogue will offer optional 3-row/7-passenger seating, thanks to its improved interior packaging efficiency. Among the many interior highlights are the innovative, class-exclusive*** Divide 'n Hide® Cargo System providing 18 adjustable variations (two-row models) between the cargo and occupant areas. The premium Rogue interior also offers exceptional passenger and cargo versatility, with best-in-class*** front headroom. The class-exclusive*** EZ Flex™ Seating System includes a reclining 40/20/40-split 2nd row seat and 2nd row legroom of 37.9 inches and 9.0 inches of fore/aft adjustability. Standard interior features include Streaming Audio via Bluetooth® and Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant.
 
"Rogue's bold, dynamic new styling is going to generate tremendous attention," said Diaz. "And once buyers take a look inside at the roomy, premium interior and experience the long list of affordable technologies, we know they'll be delighted."
 
Available Rogue technology features include NissanConnect? with Navigation and NissanConnect? Apps; Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection; Blind Spot Warning; Lane Departure Warning; and Forward Collision Warning. 
 
Every 2014 Nissan Rogue is equipped with a responsive 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 170-horsepower and a best-in-class*** 175 lb-ft of torque. Also standard are an advanced Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), and 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and a choice of an intuitive All-Wheel Drive system or front-wheel drive.

Fuel economy is projected to be best-in-class**** 33 mpg highway for front-wheel drive models (2014 EPA ratings not available at press time) - representing an 18 percent improvement in highway fuel economy versus the 2013 model. The new Rogue carries the distinctive "PURE DRIVE" badge, signifying Nissan's commitment to developing more environmentally friendly transportation for every market.
