On October 13, organizers of the Los Angeles Auto Show announced that Nissan will unveil for the first time at the show the 2017 Rogue.
The current Rogue is its 2nd generation model, which made its debut in September, 2013, as the sister model to the X-Trail in the US. The original model had a highly original design but the 2nd generation model took the design even further by being the first model to use the Common Module Family (CMF) platform, which was developed collaboratively by the Renault-Nissan Alliance.
The new model presents its first major improvements since its original release 3 years ago. The 2017 model has a redone interior and exterior to further solidify Nissan’s place in the US SUV market.
The front mask has been given a completely new look with the newly designed V Motif. There are LED Boomerang taillights for the rear. Newly designed aluminum wheels adorn the underbody.
For the interior, the front center console design has received a make-over. The steering wheel has a new D-shaped design. The sheet cloth and trim finish have been upgraded for a more luxury feel.
The engine is still a 2.5L in-line 4-cylinder gasoline engine. It gets 170hp and 24.2kgm of torque. The transmission is Xtronic CVT.
