The Nissan Rogue is back, this time with a new look. The 2024 model is all set to debut with a new front and back. Rogue is the automobile company’s best-selling model, so its quick model updates come as a surprise to no one.
The car received a complete overhaul in 2021, and a new engine in 2022. Now the 2024 model will bring with it some new look, new tech, and a whole slew of apps for all the car-lovers.
The New Features
For the 2024 model of their best-selling car, Nissan has restyled given both the grille and taillights a new style. For the wheels, the design is a new 18-inch, with a new 19-inch wheel getting a slightly posher body kit.
The powertrain remains the same in the new model. The standard front-wheel drive and variable automatic transmission remain the same with an option for all-wheel drive. The dashboard, console, seats, and panels have the option for different materials.
An Updated Entertainment System
The best part of the overhaul is for the gadget gurus, who would love the new touch-screen infotainment system set up by Nissan.
The basic S and SV trim levels will feature an 8-inch infotainment system, while the higher-priced SL and Platinum variations will have a 12.3-inch screen with Google Apps like Maps, Play, and Assistant built into its system. The SL will also have a wireless charging pad. Apple car play is compatible with the smaller screen, while the larger SL and Platinum screen will have smartphone mirroring.
Ordering the New Model
The new Rogue will be available in three new colors – Everest White Pearl, Baja Storm (a chocolatey brown), and Deep Ocean Blue Pearl.
While the official pricing hasn’t been announced yet, we can only guess for now—but expect something around $30k-$35k range (based on the 2023 model’s base price of $29,275). The car is said to come to market in the US in early 2024—maybe take it for a test drive?!
Renault is bringing back its Alpine brand with a bang! Revived in 2017 by the luxury automaker company, the brand is now eyeing big for both European and U.S. markets in the upcoming years, by setting a huge goal of reaching over 150,000 annual sales by the coming 2030. The company has recently unfolded its significant plans to achieve the milestone.
The New Ventures
As part of its new planning, Renault Alpine is targeting to launch a pair of EV crossovers for the U.S. market by 2027-2028. During the recent 2022 Paris Auto Show, the company unveiled the concept of Alpine Alpenglow, one of the possible electric crossover models. Laurent Rossi, the company’s CEO, compared these two upcoming crossover EVs to the Cayenne Coupe and the Porsche Macan, in terms of their positioning in the market. Alpine is also bringing three cars in near future for Europe, including a performance variant of the upcoming EV Renault 5 hatch and an EV version of the A110 sports car.
The History and Evolution
Founded in 1955, Alpine rose to prominence during the 1970s, after Renault acquired the company. The A110 sports car scooped up multiple rally victories and triumphed at Le Mans in 1978. Decades later, the company revived the brand as a part of Groupe Renault in 2017 by launching a new lightweight version of the A110. This agile sports car has remained somewhat of a forbidden fruit in the U.S.! But now, Alpine is about to bring it back within this decade. As per Rossi, the model is being developed with the U.S. market in mind, which makes the model more alluring and lucrative. Though, as an unfortunate turn for the original A110-lovers, the future US-bound lineup of Renault Alpine won’t include any low-slung sports car. Rather the two new models will be a larger EV SUV and a mid-size electric crossover.
