About Nissan Rogue
Nissan Rogue is a compact crossover Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) manufactured by the exceptional Japanese automaker Nissan Motor Company Ltd since 2007. The first Nissan Rogue was introduced in 2007 for the 2008 model year as the North American version of the Nissan X-Trail in Japan but it is actually the successor of Nissan X-Trail in Canada, Nissan Xterra in Mexico and Nissan Mistral in United States. Though it is a very young model that has been produced through two generations, Nissan Rogue has won Customer Digest's Automotive Best Buy Award and Highest Rating from NHTSA.
The first-generation Nissan Rogue (2007-2013) made its official debut at the 2007 North American International Auto Show on January 7. As a 5-door SUV, it was offered in three trim levels in United States: base S, SV and SL. But 360 Value, package, S Krom and Rogue Select were added later. Nissan Rogue then was powered by a 2.5 L QR25DE I4 mated to a CVT. Then the second-generation Nissan Rogue (2013-present) was unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. It went on sale in United States on November 2013 as a 2014 model and retained the three trim levels from previous generation. And now, Nissan Rogue still gets power from a 2.5 L I4 engine coupled with a CVT.
