After the last year’s redesign, we are pretty sure that the 2022 Nissan Rogue, which will represent the second production year, will come without more important updates. Simply, the number of novelties that came with the recent redesign was pretty big and there is no doubt that the new model could remain fresh in the following years. So, the best we could see for the next year are minor updates, such as new standard features, new color options and similar things. On the other side, the overall layout will remain the same.
That means you may count on a familiar layout, which has a lot of good things to offer. We particularly like the Rogue’s interior design, which looks really upscale. Also, the amount of passenger and cargo space is pretty impressive, while the list of standard equipment is pretty long. On the other side, driving dynamics aren’t spectacular but we believe that traditional Rogue buyers won’t mind that at all.
As there are no significant changes to come, we presume that the 2022 Nissan Rogue release date will be scheduled for the end of the year.
2022 Nissan Rogue Design
As we’ve just mentioned, the next year’s model shouldn’t bring bigger changes, especially in terms of base design characteristics. The recent redesign has brought a lot of novelties, starting from a new styling. The new generation looks very attractive, thanks to the implementation of the brand’s latest design language, which includes a new, bolder iteration of the famous V-Motion grille. The whole SUV looks bolder and feels like it could remain fresh for years.
One of the interesting things about the recent redesign is that the platform has remained the same. The new model also uses CMF architecture, and even the wheelbase remains the same (106.5 inches). However, the company did a significant update of the chassis and suspension setup, so the ride is smoother and more comfortable.
This has always been the strongest point of the Rogue and we have no doubt that this won’t change in the future. The 2022 Nissan Rogue interior will remain the same, which means that you may count on high-quality materials, attractive aesthetics and great build quality. The dashboard looks very attractive, while the long list of tech goodies makes it look even more upscale.
Besides an upscale look, this cabin is also very spacious. With 106.5 inches in wheelbase, the Rogue is among the biggest models in the class, and that’s pretty easy to notice on the inside. Both rows are very generous with space and accommodate adults with ease. Furthermore, the cargo area also offers some pretty impressive numbers. You may count on about 36.5 cubic feet behind the second row and 74 cubes of the total cargo space, which is pretty impressive for a compact crossover.
Yearly updates are mostly about adding new things to the list of standard equipment. However, we are pretty sure that the 2022 Nissan Rogue won’t change too much in this aspect and things are going to look pretty similar to the current model. Therefore, the list of standard features should include things like an 8-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a four-speaker stereo, two USB ports, Bluetooth, and satellite radio. The list of options should include 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 etc.
The same thing goes for safety. So, all models should 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. Additionally, there are things like a surround-view parking camera system, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, ProPilot Assist, traffic sign recognition, front parking sensors, a head-up display etc.
2022 Nissan Rogue Engine
We have no doubt that the 2022 Nissan Rogue will continue with a familiar 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which puts out around 181 horsepower. It comes in pair with a CVT gearbox and the ride seems decent enough. You definitely won’t have too much fun with this crossover but as a daily commuter, the Rogue works just fine, especially when you look at mpg ratings. This model returns around 27 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, which is pretty impressive for the class.
Some sources also speculate about the possible electrification. The 2022 Nissan Rogue Hybrid would come with the new e-Power technology, offering a hybrid vehicle that acts as a genuine electric car. However, the officials are still quiet on this matter.
2022 Nissan Rogue Release Date and Price
The lack of novelties means that the next year’s model will probably hit the market in the last quarter of 2021. When it comes to the 2022 Nissan Rogue price, base models should go around 26.000 dollars. Key competitors are models like Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, Hyundai Tucson etc.
