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?!
