The Nissan Rogue has been one of the best-selling models of the Nissan brand in the United States and with the new model and the hybrid option probably out in the market next year, sales are expected to even go higher.

“Following three straight years of consecutive growth, we project Rogue will approach 300, 000 units in the current fiscal year, nearly doubling sales since 2012. For 2017, we are turning up the heat on the competition with enhancements design to keep Rogue at the top of compact SUV buyers’ wish lists.” Jose Munoz, Executive Vice President of Nissan Motor Co. and chairman of Nissan North America said.

Improvements and Updates

The Rogue exterior has a new signature V-motion grille that gives it a sportier look. It also has new LED headlights and taillights with circular fog lamps and new rear lights with optional motion activated lift gate.

On its interior styling, the updated Rogue has an available heated steering wheel and memory seats that are sure to please passengers.

What’s best about the new Nissan Rogue is its Safety Shield Technology, which includes intelligent cruise control, pedestrian detection with forward emergency braking and lane keeping assistance bundled with the lane departure warning system.

A Hybrid Option Sets To Impress

What shocks the audiences is that the new 2017 Nissan Rogue has a new hybrid option for the future.

The hybrid Nissan Rogue will combine a 2.0-liter,16-valve 4-cylinder gasoline engine with a 30kW electric motor, the latter powered by a lithium-on battery. Peak output is a reasonable 176 hp.

The hybrid’s fuel economy is estimated to come in at 33 mpg city, 35 highway and 34 combined for the front-wheel-drive models. The all-wheel drive model gets 1 or 2 miles less per gallon in each mode. The non-hybrid Rogue continues with its 2.5-liter engine for 170hp that gets approximately 5 mpg less than the hybrid models.

Overall, the new aggressive quality of 2017 Nissan Rogue succeeds to catch public’s attention. Here's the awesome 2017 Nissan Rogue at the Miami Auto Show
