Nissan refreshes Rogue crossover for 2011

Nissan refreshes Rogue crossover for 2011

by Sam Abuelsamid (RSS feed) on Jul 30th 2010 at 10:00AM

The 2011 Nissan Rogue is a getting a slight efresh when it goes on sale in mid-August. The most obvious external changes are a nose job that brings with it an eggcrate grille shaped more like the one on its bigger Murano sibling, along with new pockets around the foglamps that give the front a more sculpted appearance and revised front and rear spoilers. 18-inch wheels are also newly available for the SL and S Krōm Edition models. The exterior alterations strike us as subtle but handsome, particularly the new grille, which minimizes the odd 'chrome bucktooth' look of the 2010 model.

Perhaps the more important changes outside the vehicle are of the type that only James May would be likely to notice: spats in front of the wheels and a new underbody tray cut the aerodynamic drag and contribute to 1 mpg improvements in both the city and highway fuel economy numbers. The front-wheel-drive model is now EPA rated at 22/28 mpg while the all-wheel-drive variant manages 22/26 mpg. Inside, the Rogue doesn't look much different but does get upgraded entertainment systems.

The 2011 gets its first public showing this weekend at the annual Z Car Convention in Nashville, TN

2011 Nissan Rogue Receives Subtle Facelift

FRIDAY, JULY 30, 2010

Having being on the market since 2007, it's time for Nissan to give its Rogue compact crossover a mid-life facelift. Revealed ahead of the crossover's first public outing this Staurday at the 23rd Annual International Z Car Convention in Nashville, the refreshed Rogue features new styling elements and equipment upgrades, while retaining the same mechanical hardware.

On the outside, the 2011 Rogue gets a restyled grille and a more sculptured front bumper. The crossover also benefits from different front and rear spoilers, chrome side door guard molding trim accents, new front and rear tire deflectors and a chrome license plate finisher plus new alloy wheel options.

Even the Rogue continues to be powered by the same 170-horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine linked to an Xtronic CVT, thanks to the new low rolling resistance tires and an under-body cover, fuel economy has improved by 1 mpg for both Highway driving (FWD models) and City (AWD models). The new EPA estimates are 22/28 mpg City/Highway for the FWD Rogue and 22/26 mpg City/Highway for the AWD model.

For the 2011 model year, the Rogue will be offered in two trim levels, S and SV, along with the special edition Rogue S Krom that comes with a unique front grille and rear fascia, center-exit sport-tuned exhaust and 18-inch alloy wheels. Details on pricing will be released closer to the launch date in mid-August.
