Today, leading up to our leisure trip to the 2016 Miami Auto Show, Nissan introduced their new 2017 Rogue, which features several new enhancements and an all-new Hybrid model projected to get 35 mpg on the highway. That puts the new 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid on top of the heap when it comes to new crossover segment vehicles. Moreover, the new 2017 Nissan Rogue gets new design cues and a plethora of active safety features. We welcome you to view the full press release below on the new 2017 Nissan Rogue and Rogue Hybrid.
The Nissan Rogue, following three straight years of sales growth since the introduction of the completely redesigned second generation for the 2014 model year, takes another major step forward for 2017 with a new look, enhanced utility and an expanded suite of Nissan Safety Shield technologies. And, in an expansion of the Rogue lineup, a new gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain – available in two grade levels and a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive – is offered for the first time in Rogue history. Rogue Hybrid will join the lineup by the end of 2016.
“There are so many enhancements to Rogue for 2017, with every one of them designed to enhance its appeal with the fastest growing segment of buyers in the industry,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. “The crowning achievement is the addition of the new Rogue Hybrid, which increases fuel efficiency without compromising passenger roominess or cargo utility.”
As in previous years, the 2017 Rogue offers optional 3-row/7-passenger seating, along with exceptional passenger and cargo flexibility with its innovative EZ Flex Seating System™ and Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System (not available with Rogue Hybrid).
Refined Exterior Design for 2017
The new Rogue offers updated exterior styling – which includes a new front fascia with integrated fog lamps, bumper, Nissan signature “V-Motion” grille and revised headlights with LED signature Daytime Running Lights –designed to enhance Rogue’s robust, dynamic presence. In the rear, a new bumper and revised rear combination lamps with LED boomerang signature taillights have been added, while new chrome-trim side door moldings complete the freshened appearance. New, aggressive 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels are also available on SL models, rounding out the upscale look of 2017 Rogue.
Rogue again offers a desirable combination of compact overall size and ample interior roominess. Details such as wide opening (77 degrees) rear doors for easier entry and exit to the rear passenger space add to its utility – along with one of the major additions for 2017, a new Motion-Activated Liftgate. Standard on Rogue SL and available on Rogue SV as part of the SV Premium Package, it uses a kick sensor system to provide easy, comfortable and secure operation – both opening and closing of the tailgate.
Other Rogue exterior highlights include body-color heated outside mirrors with available integrated turn signals, a rear spoiler, privacy glass and roof rails. Rogue’s available power panoramic moonroof offers a wide view of the outside world through its extended length. The front glass panel slides and tilts, while the rear glass panel is fixed. When in the open position, the front panel slides under the fixed second panel.
The 2017 Rogue is offered in nine exterior colors: Midnight Jade, Brilliant Silver, Gun Metallic, Magnetic Black, Pearl White, Glacier White and new Monarch Orange, Caspian Blue and Palatial Ruby.
Refined Interior for 2017
Among the interior enhancements found in the 2017 Rogue are a new D-shaped steering wheel and leather-booted sport-mode shifter, available heated steering wheel, memory for driver’s seats and mirror, and remote engine start2. Enhanced design features include new door and instrument panel finishers, new shift knob design, revised center console and console lid and new seat fabric. The result is a more premium look and feel. Also new is a Platinum Reserve Interior Package (available on Rogue SL) highlighted by premium tan leather-appointed seats with special quilted leather inserts.
The 2017 Rogue is offered with standard 2-row/5-passenger seating and optional 3-row/7-passenger seating (not available with Rogue Hybrid), which is possible thanks to its interior packaging efficiency. With its innovative EZ Flex Seating System™, every seat except the driver’s easily folds down. The front passenger seat folds rearwards, allowing transport of long items such as an 8-foot ladder when combined with the flat folding 40/20/40-split 2nd row seat.
Rogue also offers an innovative Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System that provides 18 adjustable variations (two-row models only, not available with Rogue Hybrid) between the cargo and occupant areas.
The front bucket seats are a special Zero Gravity design. The driver’s seat is 6-way adjustable, with available power adjustment including lumbar support, while the front passenger seat is 4-way adjustable. The available (SV, SL) Quick Comfort™ heated front seats are designed to immediately begin warming the body parts most sensitive to heat, such as the thighs and hips. Leather-appointed seats are standard on SL models. In addition, the optional stadium-style, flat-fold 3rd row 50/50-split bench seat (not available with Rogue Hybrid) enhances Rogue’s outstanding passenger versatility.
Standard interior features include SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), 5.0-inch center meter color display (Advanced Driver Assist™ Display), 4-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with auxiliary audio input jack, USB connection port for iPod® interface and other compatible devices, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, RearView Monitor, Streaming Audio via Bluetooth® and Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant (compatible smartphone required).

Choice of Two Powertrains, Including First-Ever Rogue Hybrid
The Rogue model lineup expands for the 2017 model year with the addition of a second powertrain – a new gasoline-electric hybrid – to the standard 170-horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine.
The new Rogue Hybrid utilizes Nissan’s advanced Intelligent Dual Clutch system. It uses a compact Lithium-ion battery and electric motor to provide supplementary power through its one-motor/two-clutch system. The advanced 2.0-liter gasoline engine is rated at 141 horsepower and 144 lb-ft of torque. The electric motor is rated at 40 horsepower, with net system horsepower estimated at 176 hp. The system also includes an Idle Start/Stop system and an Intelligent Regenerative Braking system.
Its 2.0-liter engine and 30kW electric motor, connected to the advanced Xtronic transmission, produces projected fuel economy1 of 33 mpg city, 35 mpg highway and 34 mpg combined (estimated) for the front-wheel drive model. Rogue Hybrid all-wheel drive models are projected at 31 mpg city, 34 mpg highway and 33 mpg combined (estimated)1.
“The new, first-ever Rogue Hybrid combines an outstanding, direct acceleration feel in city driving – along with fuel economy that is among the leaders in the compact SUV segment,” said Bunce.
Non-hybrid 2017 Rogue models are equipped with a responsive 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft or torque. The engine is matched with an advanced Xtronic transmission with standard Sport Mode and Eco switches. Non-hybrid fuel economy7 is projected at 26 mpg city, 33 mpg highway and 29 mpg combined for front-wheel drive models. Rogue AWD models are estimated at 25 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined7.
The 2017 Rogue features Nissan’s suite of confidence-inspiring dynamic technologies with Active Trace Control, Active Engine Braking and Active Ride Control. Rogue also offers standard 4-wheel independent suspension, Electric Power-assisted Steering, 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control System (TCS) and Hill Start Assist. Rogue is available with a choice of front-wheel drive or an intuitive All-Wheel Drive.
Every Rogue also offers a standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with position monitoring and Nissan’s innovative Easy Fill Tire Alert.
A Range of Well-Equipped Rogue Models
The 2017 Nissan Rogue comes in three well-equipped models – S, SV and SL, each in a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Rogue Hybrid is offered in two grade levels – SV and SL, in FWD or AWD (late availability).
Along with the long list of standard features found on Rogue S, the Rogue SV adds 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, privacy glass, Nissan Intelligent Key™ with Push Button Ignition, 6-way power driver’s seat and power driver’s seat lumbar support. The Rogue SV also includes two additional audio system speakers, roof rails and Smart Auto on/off headlights. New items added to the SV grade for 2017 include Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, heated outside mirrors, heated cloth-appointed front seats and remote engine start.
Rogue SL models include Quick Comfort™ heated leather-appointed front seats, Bose® audio system with nine speakers, NissanConnect with Navigation, Mobile Apps and Services, 7.0-inch QVGA color touchscreen display, and NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM® (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately).
Rogue SL models also include standard Siri® Eyes Free, power liftgate, Around View® Monitor (AVM), 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, fog lights, heated outside mirrors, heated leather-wrapped steering wheel and leather-wrapped shift knob. New features for 2017 include the Motion-Activated Liftgate, heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, High Beam Assist headlights and memory driver’s seat and mirrors.
Rogue Hybrid SV and SL models features several differences from their non-hybrid counterparts. An HEV gauge is added to the Advanced Drive Assist Display, the 2nd row seat is a 60/40 split folding design, a storage space is added under the rear cargo area and Pure Drive HEV badging is added to the exterior. Other additions include an HEV badge on the engine cover and the dual horn includes a Vehicle Sound Generator for driving in the electric mode.
For 2017, the available optional equipment packages have been revised with new content and three new ones – Sun and Sound Touring, Platinum and Platinum Reserve interior. In addition, other available packages include the Family Package (S, SV), Appearance Package (S) and Premium Package (SV, SL).Two options are available with the new Rogue Hybrid – the SV Hybrid Premium Package and the SL Hybrid Premium Package.
The 2017 Nissan Rogue is assembled in Smyrna, Tennessee, Kyushu, Japan and Busan, Korea.
The Nissan Rogue Hybrid, the newest addition to the popular Rogue crossover lineup, offers a second powertrain choice for Rogue buyers for the 2017 model year – in both FWD and AWD applications. Like the 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine-equipped standard Rogue models, the Rogue Hybrid offers freshened exterior and interior styling, additional safety, security and driving aid technology and a wide range of standard and available comfort, convenience and utility features.
The new, compact hybrid powertrain is designed to balance performance with significant increases in fuel efficiency. It takes full advantage of an electric motor’s instant torque for exceptional acceleration and, in combination with the 2.0-liter engine and advanced Xtronic transmission, provides an energetic feel under all driving conditions.
The 2017 Rogue Hybrid produces projected fuel economy1 of 33 mpg city, 35 mpg highway and 34 mpg combined (estimated) for the front-wheel drive model. Rogue Hybrid all-wheel drive models are projected at 31 mpg city, 34 mpg highway and 33 mpg combined (estimated)1. Most significantly, it does so with virtually no compromise of performance, interior roominess or cargo space (compared to standard Rogue models).
The hybrid system combines an advanced 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC aluminum-alloy inline 4-cylinder engine and a compact lithium-ion battery with an innovative one-motor, two-clutch control. The system’s gasoline engine is rated at 141 horsepower and 144 lb-ft of torque, while the advanced 30 kW electric motor is rated at 40 horsepower and 118 lb-ft of torque. The hybrid system net power is 176 horsepower.
At the core of the Rogue Hybrid gasoline-electric hybrid system is Nissan’s advanced Intelligent Dual Clutch Control system. The first of the two clutches is a dry clutch installed between the 4-cylinder engine and the electric motor, where the torque converter would normally be, and the second is between the motor and Xtronic transmission.
The high-output lithium-ion battery is able to charge/discharge quickly, which contributes to high-speed, precise control of the electric motor and optimum clutch control, and in combination enable smooth start and quick shift changes. An Intelligent Regenerative Braking system partially recharges the battery during vehicle braking and additional fuel economy is provided by an Idle Start/Stop system.
In addition, with use of the compact Lithium-ion battery located under the rear cargo area, the Rogue Hybrid maintains its flat rear floor for easy passenger access to the rear seat and little reduction of cargo room.

For 2017, the hot-selling Nissan Rogue offers a freshened exterior look, enhanced available safety and technology – and a new gasoline-electric powertrain (late availability). Following is a brief overview of some of the major enhancements. Equipment availability may vary by grade level and equipment package.
|2017 Rogue||2016 Rogue|
|Safety, Security and Convenience|
1. ICC is not a collision avoidance system or warning device. Designed to use limited braking. Failure to apply the brakes could result in an accident.
2. Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection is not a replacement for responsible driving. May not provide warning or braking in certain conditions. Limitations apply. See Owner’s Manual for details.
As part of a major revision for the 2017 model year, the popular Nissan Rogue crossover now includes the widest range of available advanced technology features ever. For example, adding to the list of previously available Nissan Safety Shield technologies such as radar-based Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) (both now standard on Rogue SV grade in addition to Rogue SL), the 2017 Rogue is also available with Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP).
Two additional Safety Shield technologies that are newly available for 2017 are Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC)1 and Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection2. Intelligent Cruise Control uses radar to maintain a set distance between the Rogue and the vehicle ahead, even braking to help maintain that distance.
Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection provides audio and visual display warnings to help alert the driver of a potential frontal collision and help reduce speed if necessary. If a collision is unavoidable, the feature can engage the brakes to help reduce both the speed of the impact and the severity of the collision. The system is also designed to help avoid or mitigate frontal collisions with pedestrians, using a camera-based system to recognize human shapes.
Both Intelligent Cruise Control and Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection are optional for Rogue SL as part of the new Platinum Package – along with Lane Departure Warning, Lane Departure Prevention and new 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
Rogue connected technology and smartphone integration features include available NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps. The system, which is standard on Rogue SL and optional on Rogue SV, offers a 7.0-inch color touch-screen display, Nissan Voice Recognition for navigation and audio, SiriusXM® Traffic and SiriusXM® Travel Link™ – which provides 24/7 access to sports scores, movie listings, stock prices, gas prices, weather and other information (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately).
NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM® (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), which comes standard on Rogue SL model, offers available services including Automatic Collision Notification, Emergency Call and Stolen Vehicle Locator, Maintenance Alerts and Vehicle Health Report. Remote Access is another key feature, with help accessible through a compatible computer or smartphone. Services include Remote Door Lock and Unlock3, and Remote Horn and Flashing Lights to help find the Rogue in a garage or parking lot.
NissanConnect Services also provides enhanced Internet Navigation searches. Navigation search options include Assisted Search (live agent), Connected Search, Destination Download, Journey Planner, Send-to-Car, and navigation search (points of interest).
The system also offers customizable alerts via email, text message or automated phone call. Alerts include Vehicle Speed, Curfew Alert (with available notification to the driver 20 minutes before the Curfew Alert), Valet Alerts (more than two miles from drop-off) and geographical boundaries setting.
Also available is Siri® Eyes Free4, which makes it easy to make and receive calls, hear and send text messages and emails, select and play music from a compatible device, get notifications, request directions and more.
In addition, Rogue offers available Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD)5, which utilizes four small wide-angle cameras mounted on the front, sides and rear of the vehicle to provide a “bird’s eye” virtual 360° view of objects around the vehicle. It provides additional selectable split-screen close-ups of the front, rear and curb views, helping the driver maneuver the car in or out of tight spots.
Moving Object Detection builds on the capabilities of the AVM system, helping enhance the driver’s situational awareness by providing visual and audible warnings if the system detects large moving objects around the vehicle in situations such as when pulling out of a parking space.
Available audio systems start with the standard 4-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with 5.0-inch color audio display, auxiliary audio input jack, USB connection port for iPod® interface and other compatible devices, Streaming Audio via Bluetooth®, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately) and Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant (compatible smartphone required). Rogue SV grade adds two additional speakers, bringing the total to six. Rogue SL grade includes a Bose® audio system with nine speakers and 7.0-inch audio display. The Bose® system is available on SV models as part of the new Sun and Sound Touring Package.
In addition, standard on all Rogue grade levels is the Advanced Drive-Assist™ Display (ADAD), located in the center of the instrument display between the tachometer and speedometer, which features infotainment and driver assistance displays.
Finally, High Beam Assist headlights, which are standard on Rogue SL, automatically change between high and low beam settings and back again as needed, such as when headlights or taillights from other vehicles are detected.
