In addition to the bold new exterior style and refined, family-focused interior, the 2021 Rogue has the most standard safety technologies in its class.2 Like the 2020 Rogue, the all-new model features Nissan Safety Shield 360 standard across the entire lineup. It also features an all-new platform engineered to offer premium-level driving dynamics and robust passenger protection.

"Rogue is the first of six new vehicles that will be in Nissan showrooms by the end of 2021," said Mike Colleran, senior vice president, Nissan U.S. Marketing and Sales. "As Nissan looks toward the future with dramatic new models like the upcoming Ariya electric crossover and the just-announced Z Proto, we're updating our model lineup with fresh, exciting and innovative vehicles that will thrill our customers."

The all-new Rogue was specifically designed to meet the needs of a broad range of families and their needs. A new Rogue Platinum grade level joins the previously available Rogue S, SV and SL grades for 2021. All four Rogue grade levels are offered in both front-wheel drive and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive.

The 2021 Rogue showcases dozens of new available Nissan technologies. A more powerful 2.5-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine and new Vehicle Motion Control system make Rogue more thrilling to drive. The new ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link provides assistance to reduce stress of a crowded commute or long highway drive3. By linking ProPILOT Assist with navigation map data, the hands-on system can proactively optimize the vehicle speed for upcoming freeway curves or junctions and also help the driver slow for freeway exits.

The design of the 2021 Rogue, both exterior and interior, reflects the spirit of the vehicle – versatile, fun, and adventurous and always rogue. The adventure-ready exterior combines athletic strength with a premium appearance. For the first time, Rogue will be offered in five two-tone exterior color combinations.

The interior of the 2021 Rogue is a true "family hub," designed to provide comfort and utility for everyone in both the front and rear seats. For example, vehicle access with the Nissan Intelligent Key™ has been expanded to the rear doors, as well as the front. Rogue is also equipped with available class-exclusive4 Tri-Zone Climate Control – meaning rear seat occupants can control their temperature separate from the front driver and passenger control, or parents can keep the back seat warmer for a sleeping infant. Also included is a 5-anchor latch system and rear door sunshades.

Getting vehicle information is also easy, thanks to the 2021 Rogue's digital display integration featuring three high-tech displays – a full-color 10.8-inch head-up display, 12.3-inch "Digital Dashboard" gauge cluster and large, "floating" 9.0-inch touch screen display – that allow Rogue drivers to customize and enhance the driving experience. The 9.0-inch screen is the largest infotainment screen in its class.2

"The all-new Rogue delivers everything families are looking for today – connectivity, safety, versatility and fun," added Colleran. "As our top-selling model, Rogue is our most important launch yet."
