The Nissan Rogue gets a number of updates for 2024, including new front and rear fascias. There’s more safety gear, and the big news for the upcoming model year is that Nissan’s bestseller also adopts the Google built-in system, including constantly updated maps, Google Assistant and more.
Set to reach showrooms early next year, Nissan aims to keep its bestselling Rogue crossover fresh with a variety of midcycle updates, including new safety and technology features, as well as updates to its exterior styling.
In line with the younger buyers who’ve made the compact CUV its top seller, the emphasis is on upgraded technology. That starts with the addition of the Google onboard system, which adds some useful apps, while adopting the constantly updated Google Maps.
“Displayed on a 12.3-inch HD color touchscreen, the new infotainment system seamlessly integrates well-known Google apps — including Google Assistant, Google Maps and more on Google Play — right on your vehicle’s dashboard,” the automaker said in a statement announcing the launch of the 2004 Nissan Rogue.
Known in some overseas markets as the X-Trail, the U.S. version of the 2024 Nissan Rogue will continue to be produced in the automaker’s big assembly plant in Smyrna, Tennessee.
Initially launched for the 2008 model year, Rogue got a complete makeover for 2021 that delivered a more distinctive exterior design and an all-new engine, a 1.5-liter turbo package using Nissan’s unique variable-compression technology paired to a CVT gearbox. The engine produces 201 horsepower and 225 pound-feet of torque.
For 2024, the exterior changes are modest, with new fascias front and rear. The SV package also gets new 18-inch wheels. Inside, new textures used for the door panels, seat and dashboard are meant to give Rogue an updated look and feel.
But the most significant change in the cabin comes with the adoption of new 12.3-inch digital gauge and infotainment screens on the SL trim.
Nissan gives the 2024 Rogue a technological upgrade with, among other things, what it describes as “elevated entertainment” gear. Among the new tech, buyers of the SL and Platinum grades
- The Amazon Alexa voice assistant which can make calls, control music and even allow motorists to control smart home devices, such as a garage door opener;
- Hybrid radio, a technology that extends the range of FM radio; and
- Pandora as well as the new streaming version of XM radio.
Google now built-in
With the launch of the 2024 Rogue, Nissan joins a growing list of products using the Google built-in system.
One of the nicest features, offered on trims using the Google system is the ability to constantly update maps without requiring owners to purchase mapping upgrades.
The Google system also offers a variety of different apps, including the Google Assistant and Google Play.
More safety features
All versions of the 2024 Nissan Rogue will feature the Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite of advanced driver assistance systems as standard fare.
“It includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist and Rear Automatic Braking,” Nissan noted.
Rogue SV also gets the Nissan ProPilot Assist system which combines active cruise control and lane centering. And Rogue SL and Platinum add the Navi-Link technology which can adjust a vehicle’s speed when following a planned route that includes sharp curves and exit ramps.
Pricing and availability
Look for the 2024 Nissan Rogue to reach U.S. showrooms in early 2024. Pricing will be announced shortly before that on-sale date, the automaker said.
