Nissan gives Tesla a Run for its Money with the New ProPILOT Assist technology on the 2018 Rogue and LEAF
Nissan's ProPILOT Assist technology is the foundation for the autonomous vehicles of the future, helping drivers maintain lane control, navigate stop-and-go traffic, maintain a set vehicle speed and maintain a set distance to the vehicle ahead – all with a simple two-button operation. ProPILOT Assist is available on the 2018 Rogue SL grade as part of the Platinum Package.
"Nissan continues to democratize technology, bringing our most advanced systems to our highest volume models, rather than reserving them for our most expensive vehicles," said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. "Customers are delighted when they realize they can afford technology usually reserved for high-end, expensive luxury vehicles (like Tesla). Bringing unexpected value is core to the Nissan brand and our Nissan Intelligent Mobility mission."
Following Rogue, ProPILOT Assist will next launch on the Nissan LEAF in early 2018.
Right now however, the 2018 Rogue is available in three well-equipped grade level: S, SV and SL. As in previous years, Rogue offers exceptional passenger and cargo flexibility with its innovative EZ Flex Seating System™ and Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System. Along with the new ProPILOT Assist, other enhancements to the 2018 Rogue include the addition of standard NissanConnectSM featuring Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ on all trim levels, and revised Midnight Edition Package content.
"The world is facing serious challenges such as climate change, traffic congestion, road fatalities and increasing air pollution. Through Nissan Intelligent Mobility, we are committed to addressing these challenges by making transportation safer, smarter, and more enjoyable," said Bunce. "The new ProPILOT Assist technology is a perfect example of how we can make drivers feel more confident and more connected to their vehicles."
