And last, but certainly not least, the drivetrain system. All 2017 Rogue models (except the hybrid units) are geared with a trustworthy 2.5-liter 4-cylinder power unit that delivers 170hp (126kW) and 175lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired to a Xtronic gearbox with Sport and Eco driving modes.
Also, there is information about the fuel economy: in Nissan team's own words, the new models deliver 26mph city, 33 mpg highway and 29 combined for the front-wheel drive models. AWD models are rated 25mph city, 32mpg highway and 27mpg combined. Not bad, right?
So far, so good. It looks as Nissan is still determined to keep its positions as one of the leading automobile manufacturers. What do you think?
