Model Preview

When the Nissan Rogue arrived for the 2021 model year, the compact SUV arrived as a fully redesigned model, ushering in the third generation of the nameplate. Despite making heavy revisions to the Rogue last year, the 2022 model arrives with an updated powertrain. There’s a more powerful engine and a new continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). These updates fix some of the Rogue’s largest issues and result in a more competitive compact SUV.

Nissan unveiled the fully redesigned 2021 Rogue with a much sharper design than before. The 2022 Rogue should retain a lot of the same design features as the current model on sale. The Rogue’s front end has a polarizing design with the brand’s V-shaped grille, a split headlight design, and sharp creases on the hood. The rear end is more upscale with an upright design, rectangular taillights, and deep ridges in the liftgate.

On the inside, the current Rogue has a modern interior design with rich-looking materials and a straightforward center console layout. Nissan has fitted the Rogue’s cabin with thoughtful storage compartments, while the bi-level dashboard, chunky shift knob, and available quilted leather upholstery are high-end elements on the Rogue. As a carryover model, we expect the 2022 Nissan Rogue to share the same interior design as the 2021 model.

The 2022 Rogue is expected to come with the same tech features as the current model that’s on sale. An eight-inch touchscreen will be standard, as well as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, two USB ports, Bluetooth, satellite radio, and four audio speakers. Optional features should include wireless Apple CarPlay, a nine-inch touchscreen, a wireless smartphone charger, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, navigation, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a Bose audio system, and two rear USB ports.

The biggest change for the 2022 model year takes place under the hood. Last year’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine has been replaced with a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine. The turbo engine is rated at 201 horsepower and 225 pound-feet of torque. A new CVT is standard with the engine. In addition to having more power than the outgoing engine, the new three-cylinder is also more efficient. Nissan claims the 2022 Rogue will be able to get up to 33 mpg combined.

The current Rogue comes standard with forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, pedestrian and cyclist detection, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a driver attention monitor, rear parking sensors, and automatic high-beam assist. Available features include a head-up display, a surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, traffic sign recognition, and front parking sensors. Nissan’s ProPilot Assist system that can handle most of the driving on the highway is also available. These features should carry over for the 2022 model year. The 2022 Nissan Rogue earned a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA. The IIHS hasn’t crash-tested the 2022 Rogue yet, but the 2021 model earned a Top Safety Pick+ award.

Pricing & Release Date

We expect the 2022 Nissan Rogue to go on sale before the end of 2021.

Pricing for the 2022 Rogue starts at $27,875 and goes up to $39,155. This represents a starting price tag that’s $650 higher than last year.

The compact Nissan Rogue will compete against the Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson, Toyota RAV4, and Honda CR-V.
