Rogue

Following an upgraded look for the 2011 model year, the Nissan Rogue crossover SUV adds a new Special Edition for 2012, along with revised content for the various option packages. Rogue once again offers excellent value, while satisfying both the functional needs of the buyers and their emotional needs – which has made Rogue one of the best-selling vehicles in the Nissan lineup.

With its standard 170-horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, advanced Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and available Intuitive All-Wheel Drive system, Rogue balances Nissan-style driving enjoyment with the versatility provided by a large 57.9 cubic feet of cargo space (with 2nd row seat folded down), a 60/40 split rear seat and available fold-down front passenger seat. Utility is enhanced by numerous storage and ultra-functionality features, including an oversized glove compartment and a large center console. Rogue also offers six standard air bags and 28 mpg fuel economy.

The new high-value Special Edition includes steering wheel audio controls, RearView Monitor, 4.3-inch audio display, USB connectivity, satellite radio, fog lights and privacy glass. Other enhancements for 2012 include the addition of a new “Sport Mode” switch on all models, new 17-inch (SV) and 16-inch (Special Edition) aluminum-alloy wheels, and one new exterior color: Graphite Blue. Also, the SL Package adds the innovative Around View® Monitor, making Rogue the first non-luxury vehicle in the United States to offer this unique, innovative feature.

Available technology features include Nissan Intelligent Key™, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, XM® Satellite Radio (XM® subscription required, sold separately) Nissan Navigation System, RearView Monitor, Xenon headlights and a Bose®-developed audio system.

The 2012 Rogue is offered in two trims, S and SV, along with three option packages – Special Edition, Premium Package and SL Package.
