The Rogue is Nissan’s best-seller by quite a margin.
The Rogue is in the Top 5 best-selling SUVs in Canada.
Current Rogue dates back to 2013.
And by the best-selling Nissan product, we do mean that it holds this title and by a nearly unfathomable margin. In fact, in 2019 in Canada, more Nissan Rogue SUVs were sold than all Nissan cars and Infiniti vehicles combined. A failed Nissan Rogue or a considerable drop in sales can be catastrophic.
We expect that the next-generation Nissan Rogue will maintain the current compact SUV’s overall dimensions but gain a little more attitude design-wise. We suspect the all-new for 2018 Nissan Altima will serve as inspiration. In fact, it’s altogether likely that the new Rogue will inherit the Altima’s 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine’s tune, to the tune of 188-horsepower from the 170 now available. Without a doubt, AWD will remain an option.
As for production, preparations have been postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The assembly line was to begin churning out new Rogues in May however that will be delayed until late summer.
Nissan Motor Co. said in a statement Monday: “At this time, our new model launch programs for the U.S. are on track. The all-new Nissan Rogue will be in U.S. showrooms this fall.”
Let’s hope that the COVID-19 outbreak goes away quickly in order for business to get back to normal, for everyone.
