2018 Rogue: Technology for Your Convenience
The 2018 Nissan Rogue doesn’t disappoint when it comes to technology. The NissanConnect® multimedia system comes standard (a first for 2018) with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integrations. Simply hook up your compatible smartphone and send texts, make calls, manage your music library and more-hands-free or using the vehicle touchscreen!
Need to access the cargo area when your hands are full? With the available Motion-Activated Liftgate, it’s easy. Just kick under the rear bumper and the liftgate will rise on its own, giving you access to as much as 70 cubic feet of cargo space (39.3 cubic feet with the rear seats in use).
Advanced Safety Features
Having earned the IIHS 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK distinction, the 2018 Nissan Rogue achieved top scores of Good across a wide battery of crash tests. Still, it’s not just engineering and passive safety technology the Rogue excels in: It comes with several driver-assist features to help prevent accidents in the first place.
You’ll find many standard features, such as Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, but the real story is the available Nissan ProPILOT Assist™, which can help control acceleration, braking, and steering during single-lane highway driving. If you often find yourself in heavy highway traffic, this technology can make your commute easier, with fewer manual changes to speed and steering.
Under the hood, the 2018 Nissan Rogue runs on a 2.5L I-4 engine paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Together, they produce 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque-a solid number for handling all your day-to-day driving. Fuel economy is impressive, with an EPA-estimated rating of 26 city/33 highway MPG.1
The 2018 Nissan Rogue comes standard with front-wheel drive, but Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is available. This system can respond and adapt to changing road conditions quite fast-30 times quicker than the blink of an eye, according to Nissan. For handling tight turns and wet or flooded roads, you’ll have an advantage with all-wheel drive.
