The Next-Generation Rogue is Coming


745 × 495

The next-generation Nissan Rogue is close to its debut judging by the latest spy shots. With new brawny styling on the outside, the crossover is ready to conquer the segment all over again. On the inside, the next-generation Rogue gets a technology overhaul with its big infotainment screen, a digital instrument display, and a separate monitor for the HVAC system. 


A more chiseled exterior is evident, giving the upcoming Rogue a more menacing look than the current model. The notorious V-shaped grille remains but apparently fits more cleanly on the crossover’s nose according to spy photographers. Although it’s unclear, the next-generation Rogue may have a split layout for the headlights similar to the existing Nissan Juke model. The headlights can be seen low on the vehicle’s “face,” but it’s the orange reflectors sitting even higher that hint at a split layout. 


The rear of the crossover was a bit harder for photographers to decipher as the camouflage did its job and concealed the styling details. The only peculiar feature noted was that the taillights sit high at the back, but they appear small. At this point in development, these taillights may just be placeholders. When compared to the current Rogue generation, this interior is a major upgrade. Spy photos show that the new digital instrument cluster we mentioned earlier houses a tachometer, navigation instructions, and the speedometer. 


The steering wheel also appears to include controls for the infotainment system, while the system itself is comprised of a large display screen with a strip of shortcut keys underneath. The shortcut keys include forward, back, menu, audio, map and camera selection buttons. Below that on the center stack are the heating and air conditioner controls. While occupants can make selections with physical buttons and knobs, the fan and temperature information is on a digital display. 


A monostable gear shift -- one that doesn’t change physical positions when switching gears -- graces the center console. An electronic parking brake button can be found right behind the gear shift as well. Powertrain details on the new Rogue are scarce, but Nissan appears to be upgrading its lineup with an incredibly efficient turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine, the same one powering the all-new Nissan Juke. The debut date for the upcoming Rogue is also a mystery, but experts believe the next-generation crossover should arrive sometime in early 2020.
