Replace: Nissan has launched a teaser picture of the 2021 Rogue forward of its debut on June 15.
The Nissan Rogue has been the automaker’s bread-and-butter mannequin in the US for years, having surpassed the Altima sedan because the model’s bestseller in 2016. As such, the Rogue is a massively necessary mannequin for Nissan, and any redesign thus carries super expectations on its roof racks. The following-generation Nissan Rogue will arrive for the 2021 mannequin 12 months, and now we have a reasonably good concept of what it can appear to be due to a patent software, a brand new teaser picture, and the talents of our illustrator.
2021 Nissan Rogue Design
Just lately, a Nissan doc filed with the Brazilian authorities, and unearthed by Motor 1, revealed featureless design renderings (see the photographs in our gallery) for a crossover SUV that appears so much just like the Nissan Rogue prototypes we have seen in spy photographs. We requested our illustrator to take these renderings and produce the brand new Rogue to life. As you’ll be able to see, the 2021 Nissan Rogue’s fundamental define would not change a lot, however the satan is within the particulars. The D-pillar is now considerably thicker, and the nostril is extra squared off (maybe to fulfill pedestrian security rules in different markets). Adjustments to the entrance finish are quite a few, however total the look is evolutionary. The V-motion grille is retained and is wider than earlier than. The entrance mild signature has additionally modified, with slender lamps positioned excessive up that sweep again throughout the fenders. Take a look at mules noticed within the wild appeared to have headlights positioned beneath these high lamps, just like that of the outdated Nissan Juke.
2021 Nissan Rogue Specs
We count on the next-gen Rogue to journey on an up to date model of the present mannequin’s scalable CMF-C/D platform. Energy will seemingly come from Nissan’s new 2.5-liter four-cylinder, which makes 182 or 188 horsepower and 178 or 180 pound-feet of torque within the Altima, relying on whether or not you go for all-wheel drive. Entrance-wheel drive will proceed to come back normal on the 2021 Rogue, and like many different Nissans, the transmission selection might be restricted to a constantly variable unit. The Rogue might get a model of the model’s fancy variable compression turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, as an choice. Within the Altima, this unit makes 248 hp and 280 lb-ft of twist. However since Nissan has by no means provided a Rogue with that a lot energy earlier than, such a mannequin could be treading in uncharted waters. The Rogue Hybrid is rumored to return.
2021 Nissan Rogue Tech and Inside
Previous spy photographs have given us clues in regards to the new Rogue’s inside. We all know a totally digital instrument cluster might be accessible, and the 9.0-inch touchscreen that simply debuted within the refreshed Titan must also be an choice. It is laborious to guage the crossover’s measurement from these renderings, however dimensions for the 2021 Rogue ought to enhance barely, which might grant extra inside area for passengers and cargo. Even when the Rogue’s inside quantity does enhance, we do not count on the unpopular third-row choice to make a comeback.
