2021 Nissan Rogue for Sale in West Springfield, MA
As Nissan’s best-selling vehicle, the Rogue has plenty of fans, and many of them waited eagerly for the 2021 version – a full-scale redesign. This all-new Rogue has been transformed not just in its appearance but behind the scenes as well. Nissan’s R&D team have been working extensively on five vehicle redesigns for the 2021 model year, and the ever-popular Rogue was the first to be released.
Inspiration for the Rogue’s new angular design came from the 2018 Xmotion concept car, translating to improved aerodynamics and body rigidity (a 27% increase). They gave the Rogue an all-new structure that incorporates 11% more high-strength steel plus smoother body panel connections and door closures. This increased rigidity teams up with a completely new suspension to deliver exceptional handling and overall performance.
Nissan also introduced some new exterior color schemes, including two-tone options so the buyer can really customize their Rogue’s look. The interior has been upgraded with available semi-aniline quilted leather, attention-grabbing digital dash components, and the latest connectivity technology options. Plus, the new powertrain is even more fuel-efficient than before.
2021 In Detail
The ’21 Rogue gets everyone’s attention with its new, more muscular exterior design: it’s noticeably sharper, sleeker, and more sophisticated than before. Buyers can choose to make it pop with available two-tone color schemes – there’s a total of 15 possible color combinations. Other introductions to start this new generation are LED headlights, a distinguished V-motion grille, and a larger rear-end “ROGUE” badge. It also returns with a new-and-improved Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system that works alongside the latest Vehicle Motion Control System to enhance driving dynamics.
The cabin shows off a significant overhaul too, with a floating center console that frees up more space. There’s also an unobtrusive e-shifter, a unique two-level dash, and ultra-modern digital instrument clusters. Nissan has cleverly concealed storage nooks throughout the cabin and cargo area, including one that fits a gallon-sized milk or water jug. A brand-new Platinum trim level tops the lineup this year, and the new ProPilot Assist with Navi-link (adaptive cruise control system) shows that an autonomous driving future is closer than we realize.
Trims and Powertrain
The ’21 Rogue is sold in S, SV, SL, and Platinum trim levels, all of which get their power from the updated 181 hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive are standard, but the improved AWD system is available. With AWD, the all-new Rogue receives five selectable drive modes: Off-road, Snow, Standard, Eco, and Sport. The FWD versions return an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, and those with AWD achieve 25 city/32 highway.
Exterior and Interior Features
The base S has automatic LED headlights, LED taillights, 17-inch wheels, keyless entry and ignition, a rearview monitor, two 12-volt power outlets, rear air vents, and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. The SV adds heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, 18-inch wheels, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and two rear USB ports. The available SV Premium Package will add a power liftgate, roof rails, a dual-pane panoramic moonroof, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, heated front seats, leather upholstery, and rear sunshades.
The SL has all of the SV Premium Package’s features, but simulated leather is replaced by true leather. It also adds LED fog lights, 19-inch wheels, reverse tilt-down exterior mirrors with memory, a hands-free liftgate, tri-zone automatic climate control, memory functions for the driver’s seat, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, remote fold-down rear seats, and a cargo organizer (Divide-N-Hide). The fully loaded Platinum gets semi-aniline quilted-leather upholstery, a wireless smartphone charger, ambient interior lighting, a class-leading 10.8-inch head-up display, and heated rear seats.
The Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite of active driver aids is now standard for all versions of the 2021 Rogue. This includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, rear automatic braking, automatic high beams, a rear sonar system, and a driver attention monitor. The redesigned Rogue also boasts the most available active safety technologies in its segment. The available Nissan ProPilot system has been improved and can now automatically change its behavior based on traffic. The newly added Navi-link system offers special mapping technology to anticipate what lies ahead (e.g., curves, interchanges, and junctions) and can automatically slow down as needed. ProPilot can even “read” traffic signs and adjust the Rogue’s speed accordingly.
The S gets an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, voice recognition, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming capability, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a four-speaker audio system, and satellite radio. The SV and SL come with a six-speaker audio system. The SL can be set up with a “floating” infotainment system with a class-leading 9-inch touchscreen, navigation, a 10-speaker Bose audio system, and wireless Apple CarPlay. The Platinum gets each of those, in addition to a fully digital dashboard.
