The company is not going to make any serious changes to the 2024 Nissan Rogue. The new generation of the compact crossover debuted in 2020 and the first update is expected in 2025. The pandemic slowed the market down. Otherwise, the mid-cycle update of the small SUV could be already here. Anyhow, the Rogue remains a reliable and efficient vehicle for everyday ride.
In the past two years, the carmaker only added a few new options for the crossover. The 2024 Nissan Rogue Nismo might be the final piece of the puzzle. We can find some signs, but nothing is official yet. The Rogue Hybrid improved one of the big downsides – the gas mileage. Well, the crossover is not bad in this segment, but other hybrids with 40+ mpg are making it look pretty inefficient.
So, under the hood of the new Rogue will still be a 1.5-liter turbocharged I3, a hybrid system, and a performance-oriented configuration the Nismo version is bringing. In the future, Nissan is about to launch a compact crossover with an all-electric drivetrain. The Rogue Sport is a totally different model that carries similar nameplates. It is positioned between the original version and the subcompact Kicks.
Specs, Hybrid and Gas Mileage
Under the bonnet of the 2024 Rogue you can find a 1.5-liter engine. An inline-three unit is boosted by turbochargers to put out 201 hp and 225 lb-ft of torque. A CVT gearbox is distributing power to all wheels if needed. The standard system is front-wheel drive. Even the base setup returns superb power outputs and gas mileage numbers. The best Rogue can do is 38 mpg, but AWD and other upgrades can harm the fuel economy. On average, you can expect 32-34 mpg, depending on a trim level.
An alternative for the new edition should be the 2024 Nissan Rogue hybrid. The gas mileage of the inline-three engine is exceptional. Other crossovers can’t match Nissan in this segment. But, with a hybrid configuration, some of the main rivals can return 40+ mpg combined. That is why the Japanese company and its bosses need such a setup. With a great starting point, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Rogue Hybrid hits 45 mpg. Currently, Ford Escape is returning the best mileage rating of 44 mpg.
2024 Nissan Rogue Nismo
Fans suspect in the hybrid model. The company is already late with its release. Plus, it seems the crossover is going to rely on the classic configuration. In this case, the 2024 Nissan Rogue Nismo seems to be a more likely option as the last upgrade before the next-gen model hits the market. Such a vehicle needs more power. However, engineers won’t do crazy things. The Nismo package can squeeze more juice from the existing unit. Or, a turbo-four can make the 2024 Rogue Nismo achieve 250-300 horsepower.
Max speed and acceleration will also be boosted, as well as the exterior and interior. Expect a lot of red details and blacked accents. Special wheels and performance tires, in the combination with the special suspension setup, can make the ride way smoother. Sports seats will offer all the advanced options – power adjusting, heating, ventilating, and even maybe massage could be available for an upgrade.
2024 Nissan Rogue vs Rogue Sport
It is still hard to make a difference between those two. The Rogue is a popular compact crossover and one of the best-selling models in the US. The Rogue Sport is a subcompact crossover, a counterpart to the Nissan Qashqai, which is being sold in the rest of the world. Having this in mind, you can guess the differences. The Rogue is more powerful and spacious. On the other hand, the Rogue Sport is a city crossover, with great agility that will impress with cruising through urban areas and parking in tight lots. Also, the price is discounted compared to the bigger sibling.
2024 Nissan Rogue Packages and Prices
While waiting for the news about Nismo and hybrid versions, let’s go through the existing lineup of trim levels. The base package for the Rogue crossover is the S model. A few highlights: 17-inch wheels, cloth upholstery, 8-inch infotainment screen. The SV makes the vehicle look much cooler for less than $2,000. The engine can be started remotely and a dual-zone climate is added. Wheels are larger, and you are also getting more safety options, such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist. Optionally, the Premium package and Midnight Edition are upgrades for the SV.
The Rogue SL can be considered as the premium version with 19-inch wheels, hands-free tailgate, a driver’s seat memory setting, leather upholstery, and all-around camera. That’s not all, since the Premium package replaces the dashboard display with a 9-inch screen, includes navigation, and adds Bose audio. The only configuration that can beat this is the 2024 Nissan Rogue Platinum. A 12-inch touchscreen is standard there, as well as Amazon Alexa (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are already available across the entire lineup), and wireless charging pad makes it so special and expensive.
