After the recent redesign, Nissan’s bestseller will probably remain the same in the next few years. We expect that the 2023 Nissan Rogue, which will represent the third year of the current generation, will come with the same design that was introduced this year, with the same characteristics and features. However, some sources also speculate about the possible addition of a hybrid model. At this point, the officials are still quiet on this matter.
Whether the new powertrain comes or not, the overall layout will remain the same. So, you may count on a familiar crossover, which has a lot of good things to offer. It features one of the nicest cabins in the class, which is also very spacious, whether it’s about passenger or cargo space. Furthermore, we like the model’s excellent fuel economy, as well as a pretty long list of standard equipment.
Considering that bigger changes probably won’t happen, we presume that the 2023 Nissan Rogue will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of 2023.
2023 Nissan Rogue Design
The Rogue has just been redesigned so we don’t believe that the 2023 Nissan Rogue, which will represent the third production year, could bring any more important changes regarding the overall design. Mechanically, things will certainly remain the same. The new generation rides on the updated version of a familiar CMF platform, and now offers a higher level of comfort, more precise steering and a better overall driving experience.
When it comes to styling, the recent overhaul has brought the latest iteration of the brand’s famous V-Motion grille. The new models look more attractive than before, even though the proportions have remained pretty much the same. The 2023 Rogue shouldn’t bring any bigger change, so the best we could see are minor updates in terms of new color options. Also, we wouldn’t exclude the possibility to see a new appearance package on the offer, with a couple of exclusive styling details.
When it comes to interior design, we definitely won’t see changes. The new cabin looks really nice, way more upscale than before. You can easily notice lots of new tech features, while the dashboard features more dynamic shapes and design solutions. More importantly, the materials are nicer than before, while the overall build quality is on a higher level.
As we already mentioned, the new model features similar proportions as the previous generation. However, it offers a little bit more passenger space, especially in the second row. The front seats are massive and supportive, while the driving position is very good.
The cargo area also offers some pretty impressive numbers. You may count on about 31.6 cubic feet behind the second row and 74.1 cubic feet of the total cargo volume. That puts Rogue among class leaders in this aspect.
We presume that the next year could bring a couple of novelties regarding the standard and available equipment but we are pretty sure that most of the things are about to remain the same as in the current model. For reference, the current model comes standard with goodies like an 8-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a four-speaker stereo, two USB ports, Bluetooth, and satellite radio. Additionally, you can get upgrades like a 9-inch touch screen, wireless Apple CarPlay, a six-speaker stereo, a 10-speaker Bose premium stereo, navigation, wireless device charging, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, two rear USB ports, Wi-Fi hot spot, dual-zone automatic and tri-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, remote start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener, panoramic moonroof and many more.
The same thing goes for safety features. Currently, base models come standard with goodies like forward collision warning, pedestrian and cyclist detection, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, driver attention monitoring, automatic high-beam headlights, a rearview camera, and rear parking sensors.
2023 Nissan Rogue Engine
Under the hood, the 2023 Nissan Rogue will continue with a familiar 2.5-liter inline-four, which puts out around 181 horsepower. It’s not the most powerful engine in the class, but the bigger problem is that CVT gearbox, which makes it pretty loud at higher speeds. Also, the acceleration is pretty weak compared to peppier rivals like Honda CR-V and Toyota Rav4.
On the other hand, a big reward comes in the form of high mpg ratings. This model returns up to 27 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway and those are some of the highest ratings in the class.
We can also hear rumors about the hybrid version for the next year. The officials are still quiet but if this happens, we presume that Nissan will implement its latest technology called e-Power, where the gasoline engine charges the battery, while the electric motor moves the car.
2023 Nissan Rogue Release Date and Price
We expect to see the 2023 Nissan Rogue sometime in the last quarter of 2022, with a starting price of around 27.000 dollars.
