The next, third generation of this compact crossover is expected to arrive in a couple of years, most likely as the 2020 Nissan Rogue. For more than a decade, this crossover represents Nissan in one of the industry’s most competitive segments. The current second-generation model is present since 2014. Considering such a strong competition, these quick turnarounds aren’t a strange thing anymore.
The 2020 Nissan Rogue is expected to come with lots of novelties, with improvements in all aspects. Of course, you can count on a new design, but also on newest tech features, including semi-autonomous driving and other advanced driver’s aids. Of course, count on a new styling as well, though it is still early to talk about more precise details. the model is expected to arrive in about two years, either as 2020 or 2021 year model.
2020 Nissan Rogue Redesign
The upcoming redesign is about to bring lots of novelties. Still, we don’t expect significant changes in terms of base design characteristics. The 2020 Nissan Rogue should continue with a similar size and proportions, as well as with the same layout. We expect to see the newest version of the company’s familiar CMF platform, which has been in use for many years, for various kinds of crossovers of Renault-Nissan Alliance. Of course, a new version would bring improvements, especially in terms of weight savings and overall ride quality. Also, newest updates should make this architecture compatible with a hybrid, maybe even all-electric variants of this and other crossovers.
2020 Nissan Rogue Styling
Considering that the new generation is still in an early stage of development, we can’t say anything more precise about the 2020 Nissan Rogue’s look. Still, keep in mind that a new concept, X Motion was revealed several months ago and that it could definitely serve as inspiration for the new styling. Of course, we don’t expect such futuristic, super-angular approach. The 2020 Nissan Rogue will more likely come with evolutionary changes. expect further development of the brand’s famous V-Motion grille.
In practice, this would mean the same direction the new Altima went in. This could easily mean the same grille design, which is much bigger and spreads over the bumper. On the other side, headlights are slightly sharper but definitely keep similar shape and size. The overall shape of the vehicle probably won’t change drastically. We count on similar proportions, though few more inches in wheelbase and overall length are possible.
2020 Nissan Rogue Interior
This aspect of the new 2020 Nissan Rogue is a complete mystery at the moment. The current model already features a pretty upscale cabin and we expect further improvements in the future. Still, it is hard to say a few more words about the interior styling. Most likely, the new model will continue with two rows of seating in standard versions and optional third row of seating, with a max capacity for seven passengers. On the other side, we can’t say how the new dashboard will look like. Most likely, we will see some inspiration from the new Altima, which brings a bit of a premium flavor, mainly because of quality materials and lots of horizontal lines.
Tech features is another aspect of the 2020 Nissan Rogue where we expect to see lots of novelties. First of all, we count on the company’s new ProPilot system, which is one of the most advanced semi-autonomous driving systems you can find in mainstream cars at this moment. It keeps the vehicle on the safe distance, maintains the desired speed, navigates stop and go traffic etc. Other advanced systems that should find their place in 2020 Nissan Rogue are things like Nissan Intelligent Around View Monitor, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection System, Intelligent Lane Intervention etc.
2020 Nissan Rogue Engine
The current model comes with two gasoline engines in the offer. Those are a 2.0-liter with 150 and a bigger 2.5-liter unit with 170 horsepower. The new model will come with significant improvements in this aspect. Most likely, base models will feature a familiar 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit, but tuned up to 190 horsepower. On the other side, higher trims should get the company’s new 2.0-liter unit with around 250 horses. Besides plenty of power, this engine is characterized by variable compression, which guarantees much better fuel economy and overall efficiency. Most likely, the new model will continue with a CVT transmission.
2020 Nissan Rogue Release Date and Price
Most likely, the next generation of this versatile crossover will arrive in a few years, probably as the 2020 Nissan Rogue. When it comes to the price, it is still hard to make some more precise estimations. Still, we are pretty sure that the new model won’t go far away from the current generations, which starts at around 25.000 dollars. Competition in the segment is very tough. Some of the class leaders are models like Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5, Ford Escape etc.
