Despite several weak points, the 2019 Nissan Rogue will probably carry on without bigger changes. The current generation of this hugely popular crossover is present since 2014. However, the company did a facelift already in 2017, so we could say it is pretty fresh. Considering this fact, as well as the fact that this is the most popular compact crossover around, which leaves behind such renowned names like Rav4 and Honda CR-V, it seems pretty clear that there is no need for bigger changes at the moment. The 2019 Rogue will continue in the same way, featuring familiar design and specs.
2019 Nissan Rogue Changes
When it comes to changes, expect minimal differences compared to the current model. We could see more standard features, with additions for each trim level. Other than that, new 2019 Nissan Rogue colors could be a nice addition. On the other side, the base design will remain the same. The compact crossover will continue to ride on the company’s familiar CMF platform, which doesn’t provide any spectacular driving dynamics but brings plenty of benefits in terms of interior and cargo space. In terms of styling, it is hard to expect changes, considering the recent update, which adapted this crossover to the company’s latest design language.
The 2019 Nissan Rogue interior will also continue in the same way. This crossover is characterized by pretty generous legroom, especially for rear passengers. There is also plenty of cargo space. Another strong point of this model is interior quality, which seems on a higher level compared to most competitors. The list of standard features is also pretty long and the next year could make it even longer.
Which trim levels will be available for 2019 Nissan Rogue?
The base equipment organization is about to remain the same. The 2019 Nissan Rogue will be available in three variants. Those are S, SV and SL.
Already the base S model comes with a decent amount of standard equipment. Some of the highlights are a 7-inch touchscreen display, smartphone integration, rearview camera, 4-speaker audio system. You can even count on several safety systems, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic emergency braking.
A mid-level SV seems to offer the best value for the money. It adds push-button ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, alloy wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel, six-speaker audio, heated front seats etc.
Finally, there is an SL trim, which includes all above and also adds things like bigger wheels, driver memory settings, heated steering wheel, fog lights, Bose audio, navigation, a 360-degree camera and much more.
2019 Nissan Rogue Engines
The weakest spot of this crossover is under the hood. With this crossover, you can count on a nothing more than mediocre performances. Unfortunately, the company is not going to make any change for the next year. Base models will continue with a familiar 2.5-liter unit, which is good for about 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. An optional 2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid will also continue without changes. This system is based on a 2.0-liter gasoline unit and delivers around 176 horses combined. Due to additional weight in terms of the battery pack, it features weaker performances, but the fuel economy is on a pretty high level.
When will 2019 Nissan Rogue arrive?
When it comes to 2019 Nissan Rogue release date, expect to see the new model by the end of the year.
2019 Nissan Rogue Price
The 2019 Nissan Rogue price should remain unchanged. That would mean in a range between 25.000 and 33.000 dollars, roughly. This is a very competitive segment. There is a lot of quality compact crossovers on the market, but key competitors should be models like Toyota Rav4, Honda CR-V, Ford Escape etc.
