Vehicle Overview

The 2014 Nissan Rogue has been the automaker's quiet compact crossover competitor, and for 2014 the model grows slightly for its redesign, now offering three-row seating as an option.

All 2014 Nissan Rogue crossovers are powered by a 2.5-liter I-4 making 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque, which is mated to a CVT. The Rogue will come standard in front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive available. Nissan estimates fuel economy for front-drive Rogues at 26/33 mpg city/highway. Active Trace Control, a new standard driving aid, works with the Vehicle Dynamic Control system to automatically apply brakes through turns for better cornering feel and smooth out engine torque when accelerating. Active Ride Control and Active Engine Braking are also standard, as is electric power steering and Hill Start Assist. All-wheel-drive models get standard Hill Descent Control.

The 2014 Nissan Rogue is available in three trim levels, including S, SV, and SL. S models get standard 17-inch steel wheels with wheel covers, halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights, side mirror-integrated turn signals, cloth seats, electroluminescent gauges, power windows with driver-side one-touch up/down, Bluetooth, second-row air conditioning vents, a 5.0-inch information display, and four-speaker CD audio system with USB and auxiliary inputs. Available equipment includes leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, Nissan's Around View Monitor camera system, third-row seating, LED headlights, a power panoramic moonroof, navigation system with 7.0-inch touch screen, and a nine-speaker Bose audio system.

The 2014 Nissan Rogue has not yet received safety ratings from the IIHS or NHTSA.
