For the 2011 model year Nissan has sharpened the exterior, upgraded the interior, and improved the fuel economy of its Rogue crossover, but thankfully pricing has remained almost unchanged. Yes, the 2011 Nissan Rogue comes onto the market with a base price of $20,810, just $350 more than the outgoing 2010 model.
Once again, the Rogue will be available in two trim levels, S and SV, and will be joined by the S Krom Edition. Power for the 2011 Nissan Rogue range comes with a single 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 170 horsepower, and customers can choose from a front-wheel drive configuration or optional all-wheel drive. All Rogues come standard with Nissan’s Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission).
Nissan has eked one more mile per gallon out of both the front-wheel-drive Rogue (highway) and all-wheel drive Rogue (city), to yield 22/28 mpg with front-wheel or 22/26 mpg with all-wheel drive.
All Rogue models for 2011 get a significantly different exterior, with new front fascia and grille plus chrome door molding and accents, along with new front and rear spoilers, among other new chrome details. The stylish Rogue S Krom Edition, meanwhile, gets special 18-inch wheels, a center-exit sport-tuned exhaust, a unique grille and bumper with fog lamps, and other styling tweaks.
