New Generation of Murano 2008 (Nissan Rogue)

Nissan’s SUV offensive continued with the Nissan Rogue, positioned somewhere between the current Nissan Murano and the recently unveiled Nissan Qashqai, set to be a competitor against the likes of the Honda CR-V, in fact it’s size is similiar, only slightly bigger. Something not as high and and luxurious as the Murano.

Designed first and foremost as a people mover (only 5 seats though!) with rugged yet sleek SUV looks and built on the Nissan Sentra’s C platform, the Nissan Rogue is front wheel drive in standard form with an optional all wheel drive drivetrain that can be specified. Two trim levels are available, the base Nissan Rogue S and the high spec Nissan Rogue SL. Both are powered by a 4-cylinder 2.4 liter engine equipped with a CVT transmission making 170 horsepower and 233Nm of torque. With the optional all wheel drive specified, you get an automatic transmission instead of a CVT.

The Nissan Rogue will make it’s debut 2007 Detroit Auto Show early next year.
