2022 Nissan Rogue Preview: Is There Any Chance For Hybrid?

Nissan’s compact crossover has just been redesigned and it looks like everyone likes it. Reasons for that are obvious. This model offers plenty of space, an upscale cabin and many more. So, it’s hard to believe that we could see anything more important for the next year, in terms of novelties. The 2022 Nissan Rogue should carry on in the same way, with familiar design characteristics. Still, we shouldn’t neglect rumors that suggest a hybrid version entirely, even though the officials are still quiet.

In any case, you may count on a crossover that has many good things to offer. We like its spacious and well-built cabin. Also, the list of standard equipment is pretty long, while the infotainment system does a fine job. Finally, it’s always good to have a good fuel economy. On the other side, the acceleration could be better, while the transmission would use more refinement.

Considering that bigger changes probably won’t happen, the 2022 Nissan Rogue release date should be scheduled for the last quarter of the year.

2022 Nissan Rogue Design

Changes in terms of base design characteristics definitely won’t happen. The new generation has just arrived and it features a fresh and competitive design, even though it still rides on a good-old CMF platform. However, this architecture has been updated significantly and offers a significantly higher quality in terms of driving experience, comfort, economy etc.

On the other side, the styling is completely new and we don’t expect any particular change. The new look follows the brand’s latest design language and implements a bigger and more prominent grille, along with narrow headlights. All this makes the SUV very appealing and we have no doubt that the current generation will remain fresh for a long time, just like its predecessor. The best we could see for the next year are new color options. Anything more than that would be a real surprise.

Interior

We definitely don’t expect to see changes in terms of the 2022 Nissan Rogue interior. The new model looks really impressive from the inside, thanks to attractive aesthetics and great overall quality. The materials are really nice, while fit and finish are great. Add to this a long list of standard and available tech features, and you get a cabin that looks really upscale.

Traditionally, Nissan offers massive and comfortable seats at the front, while the amount of space is typical for the class. The second row is also pretty spacious, which is no wonder considering the wheelbase that goes around 106.5 inches. This SUV accommodates five adult passengers with ease.

The cargo area is as impressive. You may count on about 31.6 cubic feet behind the second row and more than 74 cubes of the total cargo volume. That’s excellent for the class, number that puts this SUV pretty much on par with models like Honda CR-V and Subaru Forester.

Features

Once again, we don’t believe that the 2022 Nissan Rogue could come with a much longer list of features than the current model. Simply, the current model already stands pretty well in this aspect. It comes standard with an 8-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a four-speaker stereo, two USB ports, Bluetooth, and satellite radio. If you like upgrades, there are plenty of them on offer. Some of the highlights are things like dual-zone climate control, panoramic moonroof, 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 and many more.

The list of safety features is as impressive. All models come standard with things 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, while numerous upgrades are available.

2022 Nissan Rogue Engine

Some rumors suggest we could see the 2022 Nissan Rogue Hybrid version for the next year. If this happens, we presume that the new version would use Nissan’s new system, which works a little bit differently compared to traditional hybrids. The power comes to wheels from an electric motor, while the gasoline engine acts as a generator. Therefore, the whole car feels more like an EV in terms of driving experience. Still, keep in mind that the officials are still quiet on this matter and that the chances to see it in the next year are minimal.

On the other side, standard models will continue with a familiar 2.5-liter inline-four, which puts out 181 horsepower. It comes in pair with a CVT and it isn’t particularly fast. On the other side, you may count on excellent fuel economy, which goes around 27 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.

We expect that the new model will arrive sometime late in the year. When it comes to the 2022 Nissan Rogue price, base models should go around 26.000 dollars.
