In 2021, the Nissan Rogue went through a dramatic redesign. With this new look entering just its second model year, we expect the 2022 Nissan Rogue to be a carryover model.
The new-generation Nissan Rogue brought a brand-new look for this compact crossover, including a boxier front end, bolder grille, striking LED lighting, and more. No one can ever call this an evolutionary redesign, and we expect this dramatic new look to remain in the 2022 Rogue.
Inside, the new-generation Rogue is far more subdued, but it’s still stylish. It includes a flat-bottom steering wheel, gloss-black center stack bezel, a curvy dash, and other sharp design cues. It gains some constating colors, leatherette upholstery on the dash, and quilted semi-aniline leather seats in higher trims, giving it a more upscale look. We expect this design to carry on unchanged in the 2022 Rogue.
In terms of technology, the 2021 Rogue comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, an 8-inch touchscreen, and more. Optionally, buyers can add navigation, adaptive cruise control, Wi-Fi, two rear USB ports, a 360-degree camera, a 9-inch touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, a 10.8-inch head-up display, wireless charging and Apple CarPlay, and much more. We expect this to remain the same in the 2022 Rogue.
Under its hood, the new-generation Rogue comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that pumps out 181 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. This power heads through a continuously variable transmission and out to the front or all four wheels. We expect this powertrain to remain the same in the 2022 Rogue.
Like most new Nissan models, the current Rogue comes standard with a long list of safety tech, including rear door alert, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, active lane control, automatic high beams, blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic rear braking. We expect these standard safety features to remain the same in the 2022 Rogue.
The IIHS hasn’t tested new-generation Rogue yet, but we expect it to soon.
