2014 Nissan Rogue: 26/33 mpg, 28 mpg (FWD); 25/32 mpg, 28 mpg combined (AWD)
Small changes to both engine and transmission, along with an improved drag coefficient, make the new Rogue roughly 15 percent more fuel-efficient than the outgoing model.
Thankfully, fuel economy has improved significantly to an estimated 26/33 mpg city/highway for front-wheel-drive models
This puts Rogue at a combined 2 to 3 mpg advantage over a comparably equipped Ford Escape, RAV4 or CR-V, with only the smaller-engine CX-5 and CVT-equipped Subaru Forester nearly even with the Rogue.
that CVT can be credited with helping the 2014 model post some welcome fuel economy gains.
The Nissan Rogue's gas mileage goes up significantly this year, nudging it from the ranks of the mediocre to the top tier of compact to mid-size crossover SUVs.
Last year, the front-wheel-drive Rogue was rated at 23/28 mpg; with all-wheel drive, its numbers fell to 22/26 mpg. That vehicle's still available as the Rogue Select, FYI, in case you're interested in a very low lease payment above fuel economy and crash-test scores.
This year, an optimized CVT and more efficient tires give the Rogue excellent ratings, on either the city or the highway cycles. The EPA certifies the front-drive Rogue at 26 miles per gallon city, 33 miles per gallon highway, or 28 mpg combined. With all-wheel drive, the combined number stays the same.
There's no plan for diesel power for the Rogue, as far as we know, and Nissan's hybrid four-cylinder in the new Pathfinder doesn't seem likely, given the Rogue's already impressive fuel economy.
Gas mileage is better than ever--the Rogue leads in EPA highway numbers.
