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.
“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.
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.
As Kelley Blue Book releases its famous lists of top 10 vehicles, we at Cronic Nissan are proud to announce the 2015 Nissan Rogue was honored as one of the 10 Best All-Wheel Drive Vehicles Under $25,000. Utility and value — it doesn’t get much better than that.
The prestigious list names the auto experts’ “picks for the best cars you can get with all-wheel drive for under $25,000.” That means that not only does the Rogue’s all-wheel drive dominate any terrain in any weather with reliable traction, it also wins when it comes to style, comfort, efficiency, and convenience.
“The Rogue is the only small SUV that can boast room for seven, thanks to an available third-row seat sized for occasional use by smaller passengers. It also offers an attractive feature set that includes the very helpful Around View Monitor, heated seats and navigation with mobile apps,” the experts at KBB.com stated.
According to KBB.com consumer ratings, the Rogue is backed by an impressive 9.1 rating on a scale of 1 to 10.

Next time someone asks—or you’re wondering yourself– which car company holds the highest customer “appeal,” we’ve got some definitive proof on our side here at Cronic Nissan. Both the Nissan Rogue and Quest recently took home the top prize in their respective segments in J.D. Power’s Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout (APEAL) Study. The study asked customers to rank their satisfaction with a vehicle over the first 90 days of ownership. Therefore, these awards cement that Nissan doesn’t just sell a lot of cars; the brand creates a lot of happy customers along the way as well.
“The all-new 2014 Rogue has received numerous accolades in the automotive industry, but the most important test comes when owners evaluate the vehicle for themselves,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president of Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations. “Driven by owner feedback , the J.D. Power APEAL Study serves as an important benchmark indicating where our products stand with consumers. It’s both an honor and a demonstration to the quality of our vehicles for Rogue and Quest to rank highest in their segments.”
With a win in both the SUV and minivan segments, the APEAL Study also shows once again how versatile Nissan’s overall lineup is. Whether you’re looking for a zippy crossover like the Rogue or a capable, comfortable people mover with plenty of cargo room—like the Quest—the Nissan lineup has just what you need. Just ask the 86,000 people who responded to the APEAL survey. Better yet, come see us at Cronic to see it all for yourself!
Before you buy a vehicle, it’s a rule of thumb that you take a test drive. According to AutoTrader.com, an industry leader providing information for car buyers and sellers, the 2014 Nissan Rogue is one of the “Top 10 Must Test Drive Trucks and SUVs for 2014”.
What makes the redesigned Rogue one of those vehicles you just have to test drive?
“With a wealth of new features, a revamped interior, superior gas mileage and much more, the 2014 Nissan Rogue was re-created to compete with the best in a very competitive segment,” said Dan Mohnke, vice president of Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations.
“So far, sales numbers have confirmed it’s doing just that, and recognitions like this one only point to increased success in the future. Realizing the tremendous influence of a test drive, we’re especially grateful to be included in AutoTrader’s ‘Must Test Drive’ list.”
The staff at AutoTrader.com commented on the Rogue’s “affordability, versatility and refinement.” Editor Brian Moody remarked, “The 2014 Nissan Rogue is simply the best compact SUV available.”
Well, you heard them. You must stop by Cronic Nissan today for your test drive. Let us know which features of the all-new 2014 Rogue impress you the most.
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.
Even though it’s called the Rogue, the 2014 edition of Nissan’s popular crossover isn’t trying to hide in the shadows. In fact, it’s a pretty hard vehicle to miss—completely redesigned with a beautiful, gracefully curving exterior, a vastly improved interior, and tons of standard features and advanced technology. All that hard work on the 2014 Rogue recently paid off yet again, as the IIHS named the Rogue a Top Safety Pick+.
“Nissan has a long-standing commitment to safety and innovation, and this IIHS rating is a very important milestone for the all-new 2014 Rogue,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing, Parts & Service, U.S.A, Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA). “Rogue is the second best-selling vehicle in Nissan’s lineup, and with its standard and available safety features, we’re bringing a new level of affordable technologies and innovations to a growing segment looking for fresh ideas.”
The criteria to capture a Top Safety Pick+ Rating have gotten even stricter in recent years, making the Rogue’s accomplishment even more impressive. Plus, with an Advanced Air Bag System, technology like the Easy Fill Tire Alert, and systems like Active Ride Control, this crossover has what it takes to keep you and your family safe, no matter what.
