Nissan recently revealed the 2020 Rogue Sport design at the Chicago Auto Show, showcasing its updated design, features, and technology. The 2020 Rogue Sport will have a distinct exterior look, enhanced safety offerings, and intelligent powertrain options. Ideal for families as well as those simply looking for a bold SUV, the new Rogue Sport is an exciting addition to the already-impressive Nissan lineup.

According to The News Wheel, the major redesign will have a significant effect on the interior and exterior styling. The 2020 model year will have a new Vmotion grille to provide a bold look, while 19-inch alloy wheels add a touch of refinement. There’s also LED signature lighting, two new paint options — Monarch Orange Metallic and Nitro Lime Metallic — and a roomy interior to keep you and your passengers comfortable.

“Our Rogue Sport is a critical vehicle in Nissan’s popular CUV lineup, slotted strategically between the Nissan Kicks and Rogue,” said Scott Shirley, vice president, CMM & Marketing Operations, Nissan North America, Inc. “Nissan is on a roll and we’re not letting up heading into 2020.”

Other great features include the Nissan Safety Shield 360 system, which will be standard on the 2020 Rogue Sport. This includes Lane Departure Warning, Auto Emergency Braking, and High-Beam Assist, among other active and passive safety measures. Under the hood, you can opt for available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and available Eco Mode to save on gas.

Two 2017 Nissan Models Debut Before LA Auto Show

Nissan is shaking things up this year before the Los Angeles Auto Show. Rather than waiting for the auto show, the Japanese carmaker has decided to take the cover off two 2017 Nissan models—the 2017 Nissan Versa Note and the 2017 JUKE Black Pearl Edition.


2017 Nissan Models 2017 Nissan Models

“The Nissan new product onslaught for the 2017 model year is so extensive, we’re bringing out the new Versa Note and JUKE Black Pearl early,” said Michael Bunce, vice president for Product Planning with Nissan North America. “The four latest additions to the lineup follow our ongoing ‘Year of the Truck’ campaign, which has seen the introduction of an all-new Armada, new Rogue, revised Pathfinder, and new Titan half-ton and Titan Single Cab.”

The 2017 Versa Note showcases a new design and a variety of interior changes that were driven by customer input. With these changes, Nissan is hoping the Versa Note will become even more popular this year.

The JUKE Black Pearl Edition is looking to appeal to those consumers that love aftermarket looks. Nissan has turned the JUKE SV into a limited-edition model that has exclusive white bumper accents and trim, along with a number of black-and-white accents in the cabin.

These models are the first of four new Nissan vehicles that will debut during the LA Auto Show. Along with the JUKE Black Pearl Edition and the 2017 Versa Note, the Japanese carmaker also unveiled a new NISMO product on November 15th and the 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition model during a press conference on November 16th.

New Nissan Rogue Hybrid Coming to United States Market

Nissan Rogue Hybrid

The Nissan Rogue is one of the sleekest, most popular SUVs on the road today—which is saying quite a lot, given how popular the SUV segment has become in the modern vehicle market. Now, Nissan is looking to capitalize on the Rogue’s success by bringing a new Nissan Rogue Hybrid version to the United States market in 2016.

The current Nissan Rogue features a four-cylinder engine, comes with seating for seven passengers, and offers a low starting price, all of which contribute massively to its success. The new hybrid Rogue will simply translate all that value to an EV model, providing even more efficiency to Rogue drivers. The Nissan Rogue hybrid will also be the first Nissan model to feature an in-house Nissan hybrid design.

The new Rogue Hybrid should hit the United States market sometime next year, and it’s not the only new SUV on its way here. The Qashqai model currently available in Europe will hit North America as well. “We haven’t hit the ceiling (for Rogue sales) yet,” said Nissan senior vice president of US sales, Fred Diaz. “We have more opportunity there, if we can get our dealers more (Rogues).” Come see us at Cronic Nissan to learn more.

Video of the 2014 Nissan Rogue Earning Top Safety Pick Plus Honors


As technology progresses, vehicles are becoming safer and safer. In fact, one day, accidents may be avoided all together with automated driving features. However, until that day comes, you want a car that is designed to keep you safe in an accident and the 2014 Nissan Rogue is one of the best choices.

Last week we wrote about how the Rogue was just named a Top Safety Pick Plus by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This means it scored the top “good” rating in five tests, including side impact, moderate front overlap, small front overlap, roof strength, and head restraint evaluations. It also got a “basic” rating for front impact prevention when equipped with the available Forward Collision Alert system.

The IIHS said the Rogue performed well in its crash tests since the driver compartment held up well and the structure allowed very little intrusion into the driver’s space.

Watch the IIHS crash test videos to see how well the Rogue held up for yourself.

If you’re in the market for a new vehicle and safety is a top priority, come visit us at Cronic Nissan and see how safe you feel behind the wheel of the 2014 Nissan Rogue.
