Nissan USA Teases All-New 2014 Rogue
text size: A- A+
The all-new Nissan Rogue for the US market will make its very public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month, probably in full production form. The car is believed to still be called the X-Trail in Europe, but will be virtually the same the world over from a cosmetic point of view.
Speaking of cosmetics, the headlight that's been shown is remarkably similar to that of the concepts they've been showing us the past year. Instead of the brick-like design of the X-Trail, it's sporty and modern.
For the US market, the Rogue will continue to use a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, but it will offer 182 hp, up from the current 170, as seen on the Altima sedan. It will continue to be made at the Smyrna, Tennessee, factory. We believe it will be bigger and lighter than the current car, thanks to a move to unibody design, as seen on the Pathfinder.
The Rogue will be built using Renault-Nissan's new CMF, not a platform per say, but a parts sharing philosophy, which will influence 1.6 million vehicles per year and 14 models, 11 from Renault and 3 from Nissan (Rogue, Qashqai and X-Trail).
