Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) unveiled the new, redesigned 2011 Nissan Rogue crossover SUV on Saturday, July 31st at the 23rd Annual International Z® Car Convention in Nashville. The popular Nissan Rogue gets an upgraded look inside and out – including exterior, interior, comfort and convenience, and audio and entertainment system enhancements.
“It seems appropriate to debut the new Rogue among this important gathering of Z® enthusiasts, since Rogue shares many of the original Z®’s core values – exciting styling, excellent value and a fun-to-drive spirit,” said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, NNA. “The Rogue S Krom™ Edition, with its more aggressive styling, sport-tuned exhaust and 18-inch wheels and tires, also fits right in among the many unique and modified Z® cars appearing at the convention.”
Among the many enhancements for the fourth year of Rogue production is a redesigned exterior featuring a new front fascia and grille, new front and rear spoilers, new chrome side door guard molding trim accents, new front and rear tire deflectors and a new chrome license plate finisher.
Fuel economy has improved by 1 mpg for both Highway driving (FWD models) and City (AWD models). The new EPA estimates are 22/28 mpg City/Highway for Rogue FWD and 22/26 mpg City/Highway for Rogue AWD.
