Back in May, Nissan confirmed that the 2013 Nissan Rogue would be one of the five vehicles that would receive a major makeover. Since then, there has been much speculation about this popular crossover vehicle that is expected to begin delivery in the fall. According to Nissan, the 2013 Nissan Rogue is based primarily on the Hi-Cross concept vehicle that was displayed at the 2012 Geneva International Auto Show.
This fun and functional vehicle will likely feature a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine, producing 182 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque, thanks to direct injection, variable valve timing, and dual overhead cams. The redesigned Rogue will include the CVT transmission that will also be found in the 2013 Nissan Altima, which is also getting a fresh face for the new model year. According to Nissan, the CVT transmission creates up to 40 percent less friction than older transmission designs, which will improve fuel efficiency. It’s anticipated that the 2013 Nissan Rogue will get up to 35 miles per gallon on the highway, thanks in part to this efficient transmission.
Assembled in Tennessee, the newly redesigned Rogue is sure to be even more popular than ever with it’s swooping lines and superior fuel efficiency. Be sure to stop by your local Nissan dealer this fall and be one of the first to test drive the new Rogue!
