The 2018 Nissan Rogue is a small crossover that’s ideal for families and anyone ready for some exhilarating driving fun. When you find a Nissan dealer near Gilroy, you can see for yourself just what makes the Rogue such a compelling vehicle. Step inside and experience the sophisticated interior that features comfortable seating for up five passengers. Or if you need some more passenger space, you can add a third row and have room for seven.
Changes for 2018 include the optional ProPilot Assist system, which can automatically brake, steer the car, and accelerate in some situations, such as heavy highway traffic. Apple CarPlay/Android Auto is now standard on all trims, along with a second USB port. Features have been added to different models and option packages.
There are three trim levels to choose from: S, SV and SL. There’s also a hybrid model that comes in SL and SV trims. Front-wheel drive is standard across the lineup and all-wheel drive is available. Powering the 2018 Nissan Rogue is a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine generating 170 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to a CVT. Fuel economy for front-wheel drive models is estimated by the EPA at 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.* With AWD, the Rogue checks in with 25 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.
The Nissan Rogue Hybrid gets a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor. Together, the powertrain develops 176 hp. With front-wheel drive, EPA-estimated fuel economy is 33 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. AWD models get 31 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.
Truck Trend gave the Rogue high praise, writing: "There's almost nothing to deter us from recommending the Rogue wholesale, thanks to its all-around proficiency at doing things that crossover shoppers love. The improved styling and comfort are just a bonus that will put the Rogue back on the shopping lists of crossover buyers everywhere."
As you might expect, the Rogue’s all-wheel-drive system provides maximum traction on wet or icy roads. It also allows the Rogue to transform into an impressive off-road vehicle. Slippery mud is no problem for the Rogue, thanks to 8.2 inches of ground clearance and a locking center differential.
The Rogue’s aerodynamic styling and V-Motion grille create a bold look, while the popular Midnight edition adds 17-inch black alloy wheels and black trim.
Inside, comfort is the byword. The 2018 Nissan Rogue features Nissan’s relaxing Zero Gravity front seats. Rogues without a third row get Nissan’s adaptable Divide-n-Hide Cargo System. This feature allows you to create a compartment to store valuable items.
Few competitors offer as much advanced safety gear on their base trims as the Rogue, which includes rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, a rearview camera and automatic emergency braking. Optional safety equipment includes lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, the ProPilot Assist system and a 360-degree camera.
