Nissan refreshed the Rogue lineup for the 2024 model year, and besides the fresh look of the exterior, it also greatly improved the interior and, especially, the infotainment system.
The Japanese automaker introduced the third generation of the Rogue in 2020, and that was not the right moment to launch a new vehicle due to the world pandemic situation. Still, Nissan didn’t want to let its customers wait and unveiled the vehicle anyway in the Summer of 2020. Then, the microchip crisis started and made things more complicated. But that didn’t defeat the carmaker either, and not only did it continue to sell the vehicle, but also its engineers continued working on the facelifted version of the Rogue. As a result, in the Fall of 2023, the third generation of this crossover was refreshed.
One of the basic rules for any successful facelift is to improve the vehicle’s front fascia, which Nissan did. The design team had a challenging job to upgrade something that already looked appealing. So, instead of the previously used grille with a 3D-mesh pattern, the 2024 model year Rogue came with an improved design that featured five horizontal chromed slats. The lower part of the bumper was also reshaped and featured a black underbody shield adorned by two satin-chromed trims instead of the formerly used aluminum-looking one. Nissan also added a set of 18” alloy wheels for the SV trim level, two-tone paint schemes, and new colors to the options list.
But the most significant improvement of the 2024 Rogue was on the interior, where the automaker upgraded the technology and connectivity package. It installed a 12.3” instrument cluster in front of the driver and a second 12.3” touchscreen atop the center stack for the Google-based infotainment system. These features were available for the SL and Platinum grades. In addition, the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity were kept in place, so users could use their smartphones to listen to their music, navigate, or stay in touch with their friends and family via phone conversations. These systems were wired for the S and SV grades, while the SL and Platinum ones were fitted with wireless connectivity systems. Passengers could sit comfortably either on the front bucket seats or on the rear split-folding (60/40) bench seat. Behind it, a 36.5 cu-ft. (1,033 liters) storage area could expand to up to 74.1 cu-ft. (2,098 liters) by completely folding down the rear seatback.
Under the hood, the 2024 Rogue was fitted with a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline unit paired with an improved version of the Xtronic CVT. Thanks to the improved start/stop system, the 201 hp (203 PS) engine was also very fuel efficient. The all-wheel-drive system was available as an option for all four grades: S, SV, SL, and Platinum, while the front-wheel-drive version was standard.
