The 2014 Nissan Rogue will be available in U.S. showrooms in November of this year.
This crossover vehicle was well worth the wait, given its totally redesigned interior including the addition of third row seating and its technological advancements.
Its longer wheelbase affords passengers wider rear doors that provide easier access to the back.
The best news however may be its starting price which is expected to be in the $22,500 range.

The new Nissan Rogue comes standard with a 2.5 liter, inline-4, 170 horsepower engine which is an upgrade from last year.
This is paired with an automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT). All wheel drive is an option on all trim levels.
A look at the front of the 2014 Rogue will have your attention drawn to the large chrome V-bar grille. Standard LED running lamps match the dual round, horizontal, halogen headlights on either side.
The side view might remind you of the fenders on a BMX X5 and the standard 17 inch wheels provide a nice stance. The exterior rear view mirrors are matched to the cars body color and have integrated turn signals as well.
There is also a rear spoiler on the back roof which aids in the 0.33 coefficient of drag.

The interior of the new Rogue is much nicer than in previous model. Its style, technology and comfort are unsurpassed in the crossover market segment at its price point. There are LED overhead mood lighting and "FineVision" electro-luminescent gauges reminiscent of those used in the Lexus.
Technologically speaking the vehicle has full Bluetooth capabilities and streaming audio. It can also be equipped with a "NissanConnect" navigation display. Other options include a backup camera and moving object detect system.
