New 2021 Nissan Rogue USA Redesign
New 2021 Nissan Rogue USA Redesign – There are all-new Nissan Rogue around the corner and this is the first time we have been able to see it on the public road.
Rogue Next generation has been seen undergoing testing in the United States and it’s obvious to see that Nissan wants to keep the design secret for now. However, the shape of the compact SUV is not revolutionary.

It’s just what will be expected from the SUV family, though it would be nice if the new Rogue took inspiration from the brave 2018 Nissan Xmotion Concept. Compared to the current model launched for the 2014 year model, the new all-Rogue boxier appears and more solid, with the impression reinforced by the fact that it is a slightly larger vehicle. Just look at the third lateral window which is much larger than the current model.
It makes sense for Nissan to increase the size of Rogue in order to distinguish further from Rogue Sport. Thus, the cabin must also be better, especially for passengers with a third row.
A closer look at the front end it becomes very apparent that the Nissan Rogue 2021 will adopt a separate light/driving light setup, with the DRLs placed lower than the main headlights. This is a setting also seen on rivals like the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Chevrolet Blazer but doesn’t forget that Nissan was one of the first brands to create a Split lamp thing with the Juke first generation.

For now, it is unclear whether Rogue will obtain a new powertrain or will continue to offer a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine connected to CVT. One thing is certain, though: safety technology updates will be significant. Expect Rogue all new to debut one next year as the 2021 model.
Here is our first look at what we think is the next-gen Nissan Rogue, and it looks like Nissan was shaking it up until now. The swoopy and Sweep-back design on the Rogue front end is a place to be found since it’s replaced by yellow, straight up and down looks. If not for a semi-visible V-Motion Grille seen through wrappings, it would be somewhat difficult to ID this car.

Much of it is due to the somewhat generic crossover form seen through camouflage. The closest thing to the Rogue-like concept car that we have seen from Nissan at the end is Xmotion, and this does exactly take a lot of inspiration from the wild concept. Certain cars are much rougher in appearance, while this one stays a quiet crossover, ensuring not rock the boat. One specific design element that we can choose from is a separate light-bulb/drive setting.
Similar to cars like the Hyundai Santa Fe or the Chevrolet Blazer, Rogue seems to divide the DRL from the main lamp. The size of the gap between the two lamps that look gear is too big for it all to be one of the big light units. With the lights getting smaller all the time, and this design trend is starting to take off, it’s no surprise it’s great to see it here.
Nothing special about the back. However, the curious line in the camouflage near the rear window that curves down at the corner appears suspect to us. Nissan has All-in on the floating roof design, so maybe the version that comes to Rogue. The clear backlight is placed horizontally, and it looks to be much narrower than the current rounded unit. Little spoiler hanging in the back window gives a bit of exercise emotion, but it’s somewhat without excitement elsewhere, at least as far as we know from this image.
One thing is for sure, the third window behind is way bigger than the current Rogue back of the window. The vehicle certainly did not appear to interfere on the size of Pathfinder, but Rogue grew in sense to further separate themselves from the little Rogue Sport.
As for when Rogue will start, our best guess for now is the 2021 year model. This is definitely due to an immediate update (the current Gen debuted as a 2014-year model), but there’s still a confirmation from Nissan on that.
