2021 Nissan Rogue can probably pack more muscle

Last we saw of the updated 2021 Nissan Rogue was simply the vehicle, spilled in some blur photographs on the web, though blur, yet these pictures gave us a clear hint on what to expect from the update. Now, a few subtleties are streaming out about what’s better in the new crossover from Nissan. Powertrain figures and efficiency numbers were revealed in a report, demonstrating minor upgrades to both.

The report says the 2021 Nissan Rogue will show up with more ponies and torque than the active model, yet it won’t be a major overhaul. The Rogue will supposedly make 180 ponies and 175 pound-feet of the spinning force. These figures demonstrate a bump of 10 hp and 9 lb.-ft of torque. However, what’s still a matter of doubt is if the Rogue will get a new and different mill, however, it’s probably not going to get any electrification or hybridization.

The present Rogue is controlled by a 2.5-liter four-chamber motor that belts out 170 hp and 175 pound-feet of torque. Though more power is always welcome, yet the new numbers are just marginally better than the ongoing model. So speculations are that Nissan is basically utilizing a refreshed variant of the current 2.5-liter four-chamber in the engine.

The 2.5-liter four-chamber that controls the present model is probably going to extend with hardly any changes. Somewhat better mileage is likewise expected, with the EPA consolidated rating for front-wheel-drive models expanding from 29 mpg to 30 mpg. This figure is one of the best in class with regards to non-hybrid compact crossovers, as some of the major sellers of this segment such as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 provide a combined fuel efficiency of 30 mpg. Notwithstanding, both the CR-V and RAV4 offer considerably more proficient hybrid models as well, which in the case of Nissan is not a possibility anywhere in the near future. These figures are for the front-wheel driven 2021 Nissan Rogue. There is no word yet on the fuel-efficiency of all-wheel-drive Rogue.

The force increment is likely required in light of the fact that purportedly surfaced photographs of the 2021 Nissan Rogue show that the upcoming crossover has gained some dimensions. It looks bigger and chunkier with a more confidence-inspiring look than the active model.

The currently outgoing model of Nissan Rogue comes at a base price of $25,300 MSRP. Though there is no word yet on the 2021 Rogue’s pricing, but we anticipate it to remain somewhat the same.
