The 2013 Nissan Rogue
We look at the little-known 2013 Nissan Rogue
Nissan has been caught in a design rut where it needed fresh faces in order to attract fresh faces. The company continually delivers contemporary designs and by doing so have left the company in need of constant design changes in order to stay trendy baby. The 2013 and 2014 model years Nissan will be introducing several redesigned vehicles into the lineup. The biggest news of course was the 2013 Nissan Altima Sedan that seems to look like you took an old Altima and given a facelift stretching the eyebrows back to the point to where the vehicle was incapable of showing emotion. Nissan is working to deliver more efficiency throughout its entire lineup and by doing so they have produced designs that all utilized more aerodynamic properties therefore lowering the drag coefficient. The problem with doing this new design change is that it is turned the once brute Nissan Pathfinder into a mama’s boy. For the 2013 Nissan Rogue we are seeing some fresh new lines that are delivering a sleeker overall vehicle.
The Nissan Rogue MPG’s Go Up
The 2013 Nissan Rogue start being delivered in the fall of 2012 and according to Nissan will be based heavily upon the Hi-Cross concept the result of the 2012 Geneva International Auto Show. These Rogues’s will offer front-wheel and all-wheel-drive versions of the vehicle. The powertrain looks to be a 2.5 L four-cylinder with direct injection, variable-valve-timing and duel-overhead cams therefore producing 182 hp and 180 pound feet of torque. For the transmission on the Nissan Rogue the Nissan is looking to produce the same CVT transmission that will come in the Nissan Altima. Nissan claims that this transmission provides up to 40% less friction than the previous model therefore causing much better fuel efficiency. If calculated right then the new Nissan Rogue 2013 should be able to receive up to 35 miles per gallon on the Highway therefore making it a great competitor to the upcoming and popular Mazda CX-5.
Nissan Rogue Price is TBD
One thing is for certain and that is that the 2013 Nissan Rogue certainly looks better than its predecessor.
