2014 Nissan Rogue Overview
Despite its reputation as a family-oriented midsize crossover, the 2014 Nissan Rogue manages, with a few subtle tweaks to sheet metal and frame, to look almost mean. Some upgraded cabin bling, a marginally wider stance and a couple of new safety features also adorn the next-gen 2014 Rogue lineup, leading to a bit more passenger and cargo room, not to mention the wherewithal to accommodate newly available third-row seating for up to 7 passengers, as well as standard reclining second-row seats.
Following tradition, this nifty Nissan returns in a choice of 3 trims, the base S, the midlevel SV and the flagship SL, with 5-place seating standard throughout the lineup, along with front-wheel drive (FWD) and 70 cubic feet of cargo area (with the rear seats folded). Of course, intuitive all-wheel drive (AWD) remains optional for all trims, whereby this traction-heavy Rogue cruises in FWD on dry roads, with the AWD system kicking in to help cornering while also standing ready to transfer torque from the wheels that slip to the wheels that grip when the snow flies.
Speaking of torque, the 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) powerplant is again standard in the 2014 Rogue lineup, mating once more with the continuously variable transmission (CVT) for 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. Variable valve timing (VVT) and a bit of re-engineering has this formidable 4-banger able to up its mileage expectations to 26 mpg city/33 highway in FWD trims and 25/32 in AWD editions. Towing, such as it is, remains maxed out at 1,500 pounds with the proper equipment.
Features-wise, the base Nissan Rogue S sports 17-inch steel wheels and a rear spoiler outside, with cloth upholstery, a fold-flat front passenger seat, those new reclining and split-folding rear seats and simulated alloy accents gracing the interior. Of course, full power accessories return for 2014, as do cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering. A rear-view camera is standard, too, as are air conditioning and NissanConnect/Bluetooth hands-free communications, along with a single-CD player flaunting 4 speakers, an auxiliary iPod interface and a USB port.
The up-featured SV, meantime, adds 17-inch alloy wheels, a roof rack, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone climate control and satellite radio.
The loaded-to-the-gills Rogue SL, finally, throws in 18-inch alloy wheels, a power liftgate, heated outside mirrors, leather upholstery and cabin accents, heated front seats and a simulated aerial-view camera into the mix, as well as a hard-drive-based navigation suite with real-time traffic. Oh, and a Bose premium audio system boasting 9 speakers also comes standard in this top-shelf trim.
Options for the lower trims, as is traditional, include many of the items that come standard in higher trims, with third-row seating and floor mats in front and rear available lineup-wide. A power moonroof and auto-dimming rear-view mirror, meanwhile, remain optional for the SV and SL trims.
Standard safety features of note in the 2014 Rogue lineup include the usual 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front side-mounted airbags and front and rear head airbags. Further safety stuff in all trims includes NissanConnect emergency assistance and alerts, as well as a remote antitheft alarm. Daytime running lights and turn-signal-integrated mirrors additionally come standard in the SV and SL, with Nissan’s new Moving Object Detection system, lane-departure warnings and front fog/driving lights all available to the SV and SL trims as well. Finally, forward collision warning is available as an option in the flagship SL trim.
Have Laptop, Will Travel. I'm retired and travelling the country in a 34' motor home. I'm really digging meeting people . . and sometimes their cars . . . getting a sense of what makes this nation tick. The plan is to visit all the national parks in the continental US, then cruise to Alaska to visit Denali, and to Hawaii to check out Haleakala and the Hawaii Volcano's national parks. Anyhow, when I'm not horsing the motor home around the roadways, I'm tooting around in the 2012 Ford Focus that we tow behind, or making runs to Home Depot and various malls with the 2004 F-150 that just won't die.
