2017 Nissan Rogue

How would you like to receive a Death Trooper helmet with the purchase of a compact crossover SUV?  It is very possible, if they are not sold out. It comes with a Star Wars Limited Edition Nissan Rogue from the friendly folks at Landers McLarty Nissan. 

Nissan had teamed up with the popular movie “Rogue One” with its own Rogue.  This special SV model adds black trim, Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance logos and even Star Wars branded door-sills.  Ok, if you are not into the “Force be with you”, then take a look-see at the new, redesigned and best-selling Nissan Rogue in your favorite color and styling. 

This handsome Nissan with its new intriguing styling inside and out sets itself apart in the arena of compact crossovers.  The 2017 Rogue's face was restructured to bolster the V-Motion design theme.  Also the headlights were tweaked for the cat eye effect along with an aggressive looking rear end with chrome accents.  New is the rear lift gate that now offers motion-activated opening when your arms are full of stuff.  When you slide into those wide, comfy and sturdy seats for that important test drive you will appreciate how much room is available, even for tall folks. The cabin is sensibly designed and ergonomically friendly; it's a Nissan thing. You'll see a new redesigned shift lever with a fancy leather boot.  The center stack was reworked for safe and enjoyable driving within easy reach. 

Bigger news is that the Nissan Rogue now has a Hybrid as a member of the family.  This new Hybrid combines a 2.0-liter inline four that delivers over 140 lively horses and a quick acting 144 lb-ft of torque; it also has available AWD.  The front wheel drive Rogue lets you pass those gas pumps with 33/35 mph city/highway.  The tried and true gas engine is a 2.5-liter four that punches out 170 horses and 175 lb-ft of asphalt gripping torque.  Both engines are mated with a smooth shifting CVT transmission. 

Since the Rogue is a family oriented crossover, you will be pleased to know that Nissan has new advanced safety features.  They include lane departure warning and prevention, very important forward collision prevention and adaptive cruise control.  The blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert features are now standard in the SL model.  These safety systems make the 2017 Rogue one of the most technologically advanced compact crossovers on the road.  It is also comforting to know that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Rogue its Top Safety Pick when equipped with Forward Emergency Braking; remember you always have precious cargo on board.  These investments could bring back huge dividends. 

Anyway, as before, this very popular Rogue is available in five or seven passenger setups, except the new Hybrid, because of its Lithium-ion battery location.  Still the Hybrid gives you over 61 cubic feet of cargo space for those trips to the big box stores.  For your entertainment and communication needs all Rogues have top rated NissanConnect services that are easy to learn and reach with all the modern features. 

So go ahead and take the short drive to Landers McLarty Nissan and discover the new redesigned Nissan Rogue.  Why not put that “fun factor” back into your drive times?
