The Nissan Rogue is one of the most popular SUVs in America, and it’s about to get redone, you have to wait patiently. A new, third-generation Rogue will soon change the present, second-generation Rogue, which has been around since 2014. Based on these pictures, it will present boxier styling and potentially will grow somewhat in size. We’re likewise hoping it will enhance on its lackluster driving dynamics and follow in the footsteps of the appealing new Nissan Altima sedan, with which the Rogue may share some mechanical parts.
2021 Nissan Rogue Engine
A naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-four is likely to be the base engine, but we’re thinking the newer PR25DD engine from the Altima will supplant the old Rogue’s QR25DE motor. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions will be readily available, and a continuously variable automated (CVT) must stay the only transmission choice. Nissan may choose to offer its variable-compression-ratio turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four in the Rogue to match competitors’ more powerful upgrade engines, but that’s not a sure thing. A Rogue hybrid model ought to continue on, to do battle with Toyota’s RAV4 hybrid.
2021 Nissan Rogue Design
The swoopy and swept-back design on the present Rogue’s front end is nowhere to be found on the new Rogue which will debut in next year, as it’s replaced by a blocky, directly and down appearance. If not for the semi-visible V-Motion grille translucent the wrappings, it would be rather hard to I.D. this car.
Much of that is because of the rather generic crossover shape seen through the camouflage. The closest thing to a Rogue-like idea car we’ve seen from Nissan since late is the Xmotion, and this doesn’t precisely take much inspiration from the wild concept. That particular car is far more rugged in look, while this one remains a staid crossover, making sure it does not rock the boat. One specific design component we can choose out is a separate headlight/driving light setup. Similar to cars like the Hyundai Santa Fe or Chevrolet Blazer, the Rogue appears to be splitting up the DRL from the primary headlight. The size of the space in between the 2 noticeable headlight components is simply too big for everything to be one massive headlight system. With headlights getting smaller sized all the time, and this design pattern beginning to remove, it’s no huge surprise to see it here.
On the rear nothing unique. Nevertheless, a curious line in the camo near the rear window that arches downward at an angle looks suspect. Nissan has been all-in on the drifting roofing design, so perhaps a version of that is coming to the Rogue. The taillights are absolutely horizontally positioned and seem far narrower than the current bulbous units. A small spoiler hanging over the back window provides it a little bit of sporting emotion, but it’s rather devoid of enjoyment somewhere else, at least as far as we can tell from these images. Something’s for sure, the 3rd window in the rear is way larger than the existing Rogue’s rear-most window. The vehicle certainly doesn’t appear to encroach on Pathfinder size, but a growing Rogue makes sense to more separate itself from the little Rogue Sport.
2021 Nissan Rogue Debut
Nissan hasn’t said anything about the new Rogue yet which will release, but we ought to hear more about this new model either at the end of 2019 or early in 2020, with the car going on sale sometime next year.
