The 2017 Nissan Rogue is considered one of the top 10 best-selling SUVs in the U.S. market and for good reasons. Aside from the fact that it has a very attractive exterior, it also has a lot to offer in other aspects. Here are the specs, features, price and everything that makes the 2017 Nissan Rogue special.
2017 Nissan Rogue: Power Lands Right In The Middle
If you are looking for the kind of SUV that focuses on the “Sport” rather than the “Utility”, you are not going to find it in the 2017 Nissan Rogue because it is not exactly a very powerful SUV. However, it does have enough power to make it a balanced SUV for the family.
The 2017 Nissan Rogue is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that only delivers 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that delivers the power through a standard front wheel drive (FWD) and an optional all-wheel drive (AWD) configuration.
2017 Nissan Rogue: Sweet Fuel Economy
Now here’s where things become more interesting. Despite the 2017 Nissan Rogue not having a very powerful engine configuration, it does have a good fuel economy rating. The 2017 Nissan Rogue is capable of 27/25/32 miles per gallon in the city, on the highway and combined respectively for the FWD configuration. It was also noted that all numbers drop only by one point in the AWD setting. Not bad for an SUV.
2017 Nissan Rogue: Features
Unfortunately, technology features, infotainment in particular, are not very remarkable. Many people have apparently complained about the NissanConnect having a low-resolution touchscreen in addition to it freezing up from time to time. We could certainly use a little upgrade in this aspect. The safety features on the other hand is a different story.
However, there’s a catch here. The 2017 Nissan Rogue features rollover sensor and rearview camera as standard. In order to get the other safety features, we would have to move to higher level of trims. Apparently, there is also a separate package that gives you lane keep assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
2017 Nissan Rogue: Trims And Price
The 2017 Nissan Rogue is available in three trims starting from the base S, followed by the midlevel SV and the top trim SL. The price starts at $ 23,820, $25,240 and $29,960 respectively.
2017 Nissan Rogue: Is It Worth It?
The million-dollar question here is, is it worth it? That really depends on how you look at it. As mentioned earlier, if you want a sportier vehicle, the 2017 Nissan Rogue is not for you. But if you are looking for a reliable utility vehicle, the 2017 Nissan Rogue will fit perfectly like a glove. Source: itechpost
