2011 Nissan Rogue Overview
There are a lot of things to like about the redesigned 2011 Nissan Rogue crossover, especially when it comes to the exceptional fuel economy, refreshed look and ample interior features.
The makeover to the 2011 Nissan Rogue is subtle, but changes the feel of the car visually. The front fascia, grille, rear spoiler and liftgate get a sleeker look, while the Rogue revamps the trim levels, which now include: S, SV and Krom Edition. The new Krom Edition looks like a shadow with its streamlined body design, upper and lower grilles, integrated fog lights, center-exit sport-tuned exhaust, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and rear privacy glass.
Powering the 2011 Rogue is a 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission. The Rogue outputs 175 pounds-feet of torque and is available with front- or all-wheel drive and optional steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The Rogue also delivers first-class fuel economy with 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. Competition to the 2011 Nissan Rogue includes the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.
Inside the 2011 Nissan Rogue, you’ll find room for five with a 60/40-split folding rear bench seat and an available flat-folding front passenger seat. Decide whether you want standard cloth seat trim, optional premium cloth trim, leather-appointed seats, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. On the outside, the S and SV trims sit on 16- and 17-inch wheels. Roof rails, a power sliding glass moonroof, pre-wired tow hitch, heated outside mirrors, and high-intensity discharge xenon headlights are optional equipment.
As far as gadgetry, the 2011 Nissan Rogue is stacked. A standard USB port and optional automatic climate control and navigation system with five-inch color touch-screen are new for 2011. Additional interior options include a premium digital Bose audio system, AM/FM/CD audio system with 4.3-inch color display, XM Satellite Radio, up to eight speakers, XM NavTraffic, Bluetooth® connectivity, rearview monitor, and keyless entry.
The 2011 Nissan Rogue’s standard safety features include side-impact and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, electronic stability system with traction control, and a smart key, which immobilizes the engine in the event of an attempted theft.
Forget about the norm and go for a vehicle that offers excellent fuel efficiency, copious amounts of options and the versatility of a crossover with the 2011 Nissan Rogue.
