Rogues original concept of providing great driving performance, SUV versatility and good fuel efficiency in one high-value package resonates
even more today with buyers looking for a high-style vehicle that can do it all, said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America,
Inc. The addition of the new 360 Value Package is the proverbial frosting on the cake, adding some of our most popular features at a great price.
Sporty Design, Driver-Oriented Interior
Rogues exterior is designed to present an image of modern sophistication both aggressive and sporty. Its dramatic styling includes dynamically
arched forms and powerful rear shoulder lines. Rogue features available Xenon headlights, available power sliding glass moonroof with dark gray
glass, and an available roof rail system with detachable crossbars (accessory). Chrome door handles are now standard on all 2010 Rogue models.
Rogue is built on Nissans proven C platform, which provides high body stiffness with extensive use of high-strength steel utilized to reduce
body weight. Rogue features a 105.9-inch wheelbase and 182.9-inch overall length among the longest in class, compared with leading small crossover competitors providing
ample rear seat proportions and one of the longest interior lengths. The body also features large front door openings for easy ingress and egress.
Rogues interior, like its exterior, is designed to stand out in class with its sophisticated integration of a cockpit-like drivers space and
exceptional utility. The drivers seat position offers excellent visibility, enhanced by an available seat lifter with up to two inches of seat height adjustability. Rogues instrument
panel layout and steering wheel are designed for easy readability and operation while also providing a sporty look and feel.
An available drive computer (standard on SL) includes displays for distance-to-empty, average fuel consumption, average speed, elapsed time
and outside temperature. Available steering wheel-mounted controls include audio, Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System and cruise control (cruise control is standard on all models).
Leather-appointed seating surfaces and heated front seats and mirrors are also available, along with a fold-down front passenger seat (standard on
SL) which allows more than 8.5 feet of front-to-rear cargo space for carrying long items such as wood or ladders. A rear 60/40 split-fold
bench seat, oversize glove compartment, and versatile center console all contribute to Rogues impressive functionality.
Rogues roomy cargo area has a number of available utility features, including a unique cargo organizer (available on SL only). When needed,
the organizer pops up with a one-touch open button from its hidden space below the flat cargo floor. A portion of the cargo floor snaps into
a vertical position, revealing a flat recessed space with removable, vertical cargo nets. The system helps prevent items such as sports
equipment and grocery bags from rolling loose around the cargo area while driving. Rogue also features a washable, removable tray that fits below
the cargo area floor to hold wet or dirty gear and tools and a rear tonneau cover to keep luggage and other items out of sight. Rogues
everyday utility features also include a variety of cupholders, memo/pen holder, coin holder and cell phone/sunglass holders.
Among the advanced technology features available on Rogue are a Nissan Intelligent Key and a powerful Bose-developed audio system with 6CD
in-dash changer, 7 speakers with Nd Richbass woofer with MP3 capability and XM Satellite Radio (XM subscription required, sold separately).
Also available is a Bluetooth Hands- free Phone System.
While maintaining its functionality as a family vehicle, Rogues creators also recognized the target buyers desires for a higher level of
acceleration, handling and fun-to-drive attributes than offered by traditional small crossover SUVs. Rogue delivers on this promise with an
advanced drivetrain anchored by its powerful 2.5-liter engine, 4-wheel independent suspension and refined, intuitive All-Wheel Drive system.
Rogues standard QR25DE 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder is rated at 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft torque (167 hp, 170 lb-ft CAL
emissions), tuned to provide ample torque in the low-to-mid rpm range for smooth, powerful acceleration and quick initial response from a standing
start. The engine features an aluminum block, reduced piston and piston ring friction and increased thermal efficiency (over the previous
generation 2.5-liter engine design), 9.6:1 compression ratio, and large diameter intake port and exhaust manifold.
Every Rogue comes with a standard Nissan Xtronic CVT, combining smooth, linear and responsive acceleration feel with high-efficiency operation.
Rogues CVT utilizes adaptive logic control and a high-speed central processing unit. Its advanced shift control offers the optimal shift
pattern according to the driving situation and drivers demands, using input from driver operation, vehicle speed, road gradient, turning
condition and acceleration force to adjust shifting patterns accordingly.
Rogue fuel economy is rated at 22 mpg City/27 mpg Highway for 2-wheel drive models and 21 mpg City/26 mpg Highway for all-wheel drive models.
Rogue AWD models feature an advanced, intuitive All-Wheel Drive system with yaw moment control or front-wheel drive. The system provides stable
starts on dry or slippery roads and excellent all-weather performance and traction. Every Rogue also features standard Vehicle Dynamic Control
(VDC) with Traction Control System (TCS).
Rogues standard 4-wheel independent suspension provides a balance of ride comfort and driving stability. The front suspension includes
subframe-mounted independent struts with coil springs, high-performance shock absorbers with rebound springs, and a stabilizer bar. The rear
independent multi-link suspension includes aluminum-alloy upper links, high-performance shock absorbers with rebound springs and stabilizer bar.
The rear suspension design allows maximum luggage space (versus a rear strut design), as well as driving stability. Responsive steering is
provided by an Electric Power-assisted Steering (EPS) system. Every Rogue also comes equipped with standard power-assisted front and rear vented disc
brakes with standard Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA). Rogue S
models come with 16-inch steel wheels and P215/70R16 tires, while 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with P225/60R17 tires are standard on Rogue SL models.
Standard safety features include the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) with dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt and
occupant classification sensors; front seat-mounted side impact supplemental air bags; roof-mounted curtain side impact supplemental air bags with rollover sensor for
improved front and rear-seat outboard occupant head protection; front seat Active Head Restraints; 3-point front/rear seatbelts with
pre-tensioners, load limiters and adjustable upper anchors for front seating positions and LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren).
Every Rogue also offers child safety rear door locks; Zone Body construction featuring front and rear crumple zones and occupant zone;
Nissan Immobilizer system and anti-theft alarm system; and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
