2012 Nissan Rogue 4.0 45
$ 9,990-18,958
June 23, 2011
Vehicle Overview

The Rogue is a compact crossover that's powered by a four-cylinder engine and is available with front- or all-wheel drive. Competition includes the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V. The Rogue seats five people.

New for 2012
All models gain a Sport mode switch, and a new Special Edition Package is available. The value-oriented package includes steering-wheel stereo controls, a backup camera, a USB port, satellite radio and fog lights. Meanwhile, the SL Package gains Nissan's Around View Monitor.

Last year, the Rogue got a mild face-lift that included a new front grille and front and rear spoilers. It still resembles its larger corporate sibling, the Nissan Murano. Exterior features include:

  • 16-inch steel wheels
  • Available 17- or 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels
  • Standard power mirrors, optional heated mirrors
  • Standard chrome door handles
  • Optional front fog lamps
  • Optional xenon headlights

There's room for five in the Rogue's cabin. The driver and front passenger sit on bucket seats and face a fairly minimalist dashboard. Dash vents and control knobs are accented with silver-colored surrounds, and the instrument panel is dominated by two large gauges with orange lighting. An available flat-folding front passenger seat allows longer items to be carried inside the crossover, and the second row features a 60/40-split folding bench seat. Interior features include:

  • Available cloth, two-tone cloth or leather seating
  • Available automatic climate control
  • Optional 4.3-inch color display
  • Optional navigation system
  • Optional leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter
  • Optional Bose stereo
  • Available Bluetooth connectivity
  • Optional keyless entry and ignition system

Under the Hood

The Rogue is available with front- or all-wheel drive. Steering-wheel paddle shifters are available. Mechanical features include:

  • 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 175 pounds-feet of torque
  • Continuously variable automatic transmission


Standard safety features include:

  • Side-impact and side curtain airbags
  • Electronic stability and traction control
  • All-disc antilock brakes
  • Active front head restraints
  • Standard smart key that immobilizes the engine in an attempted theft
