The New 2021 Nissan Rogue

Nissan Rogue Models

The 2021 Nissan Rogue is a five-passenger small SUV sold in four trim levels: S, SV, SL and Platinum. All are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (181 horsepower, 181 lb-ft of torque) mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
Front-wheel drive is standard across the board, and all-wheel drive is available on all trims.


The Rogue's suite of advanced driving aids is branded as Nissan Safety Shield. Safety Shield consists of:

  • Forward collision mitigation (warns you of an impending collision and applies the brakes in certain scenarios)
  • Lane departure warning (alerts you if the vehicle begins to drift out of its lane)
  • Blind-spot monitor (alerts you if a vehicle in the next lane over is in your blind spot)
  • Rear cross-traffic alert (warns you if a vehicle behind you is about to cross your vehicle's path while you're in reverse)
  • Rear-passenger safe exit system (can prevent a rear passenger from opening a door into traffic approaching from behind)
  • Rear automatic braking (brakes if sensors detect an imminent collision with an object behind the vehicle)
