The 2017 Rogue also offers available Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP). With all of Rogue’s updates, it now includes more available technology functions than ever before. Two entirely new Safety Shield features for the Rogue are Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) and Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. Intelligent Cruise Control allows the Rogue to keep an established distance from the vehicle in front, with combined braking to keep the distance consistent.
Continuing with the safety feature lineup, the new Rogue will also include Forward Emergency Breaking with Pedestrian Detection which makes the driver aware of a potential forward collision and can reduce speed if necessary. This new system also helps the driver to avoid forward collisions with pedestrians by utilizing technology to identify human-sized shapes.
Moving to the interior, the 2017 Rogue has new materials for the dash, upholstery and cargo areas along with finishers to provide a high-end atmosphere through the spacious interior. Carrying over from previous year models, this Rogue includes available 7-passenger capacity via third row seating. Another returning staple in this year’s model is the notable adjustability for passengers and cargo with the ingenuity of EZ Flex Seating and the Divide-N-Hide Cargo functionality.
All trim levels of the new Rogue will include a 170-horsepower 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine with an Xtronic transmission. The updated Rogue will come with front-wheel drive and Nissan’s available instinctive All-Wheel Drive system.
