2016 Nissan Rogue

The 2016 Nissan Rogue challenged convention upon its release with bold emotive styling, a premium interior created with comfort and multi-tasking in mind, and an array of available, affordable technologies. Rogue offers optional 3-row/7-passenger seating, along with exceptional passenger and cargo flexibility with its innovative EZ Flex Seating System™ and Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System.

For the 2016 model year, the Rogue added a number of significant features to its list of available technologies, including Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) and NissanConnectâ„  Services powered by SiriusXM® (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately). Rogue is also the first model in Nissan’s lineup to offer Siri® Eyes Free, which allows drivers to interact with Siri® on their compatible Apple iPhone®.

Other available technologies include NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps, class-exclusive* Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD) and radar-based Blind Spot Warning (BSW).

Other 2016 enhancements include one new exterior colour, Magnetic Black, and the addition of a new Appearance Package for Rogue S models with body-colored outside mirrors with integrated turn signals; chrome door handles roof rails and privacy glass. 

Robust Exterior, Inviting Interior

Rogue’s dynamic exterior combines a premium, high-quality look and feel without compromising the functional aspects that are so important to owners in this class. Rogue offers a compact overall size and ample interior roominess, thanks to its long wheelbase and short front and rear overhangs – aided by details such as wide opening (77 degrees) rear doors for easier entry and exit to the rear passenger space.

Rogue’s bold, sharp body lines offer a sporty and confident appearance, balancing its sleek style with an aggressive stance provided by large wheel wells and available 18-inch wheels and tires.

Confidence-Inspiring Driving

Every 2016 Nissan Rogue is equipped with a responsive 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The engine is matched with an advanced Xtronic transmission with standard Sport Mode and Eco switches. The Eco setting helps customers easily realize the vehicle’s maximum fuel efficiency by changing acceleration pedal feel and illuminating an icon on the meter to inform customers they are in that mode.

With a 40 percent reduction (versus the previous generation) in friction loss, along with an improved belt and pulley system, reduced oil churning friction, compact oil pump, new electronic control, wider gear ratio and other enhancements, the Xtronic transmission is approximately 10 percent more efficient than the previous-generation design.

Fuel economy is rated at 26 mpg city, 33 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined for front-wheel drive CVT-equipped models. Rogue AWD models are rated at 25 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined. 

Three Well-Equipped Models

 The 2016 Nissan Rogue comes in three well-equipped models, S, SV and SL, each in a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive.

Along with the long list of standard features found on Rogue S, the Rogue SV adds 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, privacy glass, Nissan Intelligent Key™ with Push Button Ignition, 6-way power driver’s seat and power driver’s seat lumbar support. The Rogue SV also includes two additional audio system speakers, roof rails and Smart Auto on/off headlights.

Rogue SL models include Quick Comfort™ heated leather-appointed front seats, Bose® audio system with nine speakers, NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps, 7.0-inch QVGA colour touchscreen display, and NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM® (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately).

Rogue SL models also include standard Siri® Eyes Free, power liftgate, Around View® Monitor (AVM), 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, fog lights, heated outside mirrors and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

The 2016 Nissan Rogue was assembled in Smyrna, Tennessee and Busan, Korea.
