The 2015 Nissan Rogue will be released by the end of this year. The new model will represent a carryover since the previous version received a thorough redesign. Therefore, the new model will not have anything drastically changed, but the small updates it will bring are worth mentioning. To start with, the new model will have a refreshed exterior. The new appearance of the SUV might be considered as a bit more conservative than the one seen on the current model, but in our opinion, the change is for the better as the new look goes much better with the performance and specs of the vehicle. This in no way means that the Rogue is dull or outdated, the SUV is a quality vehicle with decent characteristics. In addition, the interior will receive a mild update with the possibility of adding up new gadgets. As for the powertrain, the new model will keep its current engine, which has proven to be more than a good option. All in all, the 2015 Nissan Rogue is a very good, quality vehicle with few extra perk that will improve the driving experience.
2015 Nissan Rogue Updates
The 2015 Nissan Rogue was fully redesign for the 2014 model year, so the 2015 model will only have some modest updates. The model will keep the current platform, which provides enough space and support for the SUV, while at the same time staying more or less light. The new model will be a bit higher, with a higher ground clearance. This is important in terms of off-road driving, and since the current model is quite good at it, expect the new one to be even better. In addition, the new model will have a slightly longer wheelbase, though this change will not affect the interior space significantly. Moreover, the appearance of the 2015 Nissan Rogue will be refreshed. The front end will have its recognizable grille and a pair of stylish headlights which will now look more elegant and smooth than before. The highest trim will have an option of LED headlights, whereas both 17” and 18” wheels will be offered, too. The new model will keep its recognizable appearance, and add to it a dash of dominance and elegance. The refreshment is truly a job well done.
Interior And Features
As for the interior, the 2015 Nissan Rogue will surely impress you with its cabin. The new model will keep the looks of the interior the current model holds, but it will also add some new and interesting features. To start with, the new model will use more higher-quality materials for its interior, while the highest SL trim will also offer leather upholstery. The comfort of the model is improved by providing more space for second-row passengers, as well as with the new, comfy seats. The novelty for this model is an optional third row of seats which slightly worsens the experience and comfort. In addition, the new model will offer tons of equipment. The 2015 Rogue will feature fantastic smartphone connectivity, possible NissanConnect infotainment system, four-speaker audio system, power driver seats, moonroof and much more. Moreover, unofficially, the 2015 Nissan Rogue is said to win the award for safety, though it has yet to prove its quality. The new SUV comes with numerous safety systems, where only some of them are collision warning, lane departure warning, surround camera view, rearview monitor, etc.
As for the 2015 Nissan Rogue powertrain, the SUV will use the same engine that powers the current model. That’s a 2.5-liter inline-four unit which generates 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The unit is paired with a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) automatic transmission. These two elements together accelerate the vehicle to 60 mph from a standstill in 8 seconds, which is a good time for an SUV this class. In addition, the new model has superb fuel economy. If the Rogue uses the front-wheel drive, its EPA fuel economy is at 26 mpg/city, 33 mpg/highway and 28 mpg/combined, while the all-wheel drive changes these to 25 mpg/city, 32 mpg/highway and 28 mpg/combined.
2015 Nissan Rogue Price And Release
The 2015 Nissan Rogue will cost around $22,000 for the entry trim level, while the more advanced ones could raise this number up to almost $30,000. The model is expected to be released by the end of this year.
