To be the owner of a Nissan 2011 MY Rogue, be prepared to be set back by at least $20,810. But if you were hoping to get the top-of-the-range version, it will cost at least $28,320, according to Nissan's North American division. The 2011 model year Rogue was recently presented at the 23rd annual Z Car Convention in Nashville.
Its range includes two versions (S and SV trim levels) and a special edition (the "S Krom" range-topper). All versions are equipped with a 2.5 liter four-cylinder unit that produces 170 hp and is partnered with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The vehicle comes in either front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. Nissan gave this model several tech features that increase safety and comfort.
These include xenon headlights, a rearview system, a Bluetooth hands-free system, a navigation system, keyless entry and a premium audio system from Bose.
These features are offered as standard: a factory alarm system, a Vehicle Dynamic Control system and six airbags. The S version has 16-inch rims that are covered with 215/70 R16 tires, while the SV level features 17-inch alloy rims that have 225/55 R18 tires.
The Rogue S Krom Edition boasts 18-inch alloy rims that are wrapped in 225/55 R18 Dunlop SP Sport 7000 all-season tires.
Both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models have had their fuel efficiency levels increase by 1mpg. The FWD version offers a 22/28 EPA rating (city/highway) while the AWD version claims an EPA rating of 22/26 mpg.
The exterior of the new Nissan Rogue exudes modern sophistication, as made possible by its dramatic styling defined by powerful arched forms and rear shoulder lines. The 2011 Rogue doesn’t just feel sportier but also boasts of a more upscale appearance.
Castignetti remarked that unlike some compact SUVs in its class, the Nissan Rogue isn't toy-like in any way. He noted that the Rogue boasts of new refined, grown-up style that complements its sporty appearance and performance – as evident on details like its chrome accents and the available 18-inch wheels.
Fitted as standard for the new Nissan Rogue are Chrome door handles, power sideview mirrors body-colored bumpers as well as rear liftgate with fixed glass. Available features for the new Rogue includes Xenon headlights, roof rails with available detachable crossbars, as well as power sliding glass moonroof with dark gray glass.
Nissan provided the new Nissan Rogue with large front door openings to allow its occupants to easily enter and exit the vehicle. The Rogue S Krom Edition sports a distinct grille with integrated fog lights, 18-inch brilliant-finish aluminum-alloy wheels, body-colored power outside mirrors, integrated body-colored rear spoiler as well as rear sport fascia and an integrated center-exit exhaust.
