The 2018 Nissan Rogue is here at our dealership serving White Plains, New York and it’s already the talk of the showroom! That’s because of the many new technologies and appearance package.
With that being said, here’s a list of things that are new for the Nissan Rogue.
1. Nissan ProPILOT Assist
Let’s begin with the biggest change: the debut of Nissan ProPILOT Assist. This technology is designed to be partially self driving by automatically steering the vehicle, putting on the brakes and accelerating forward in a single lane simply by pushing 2 buttons.
This system uses intelligent cruise control, a front camera and steering assist to pull this off without you even needing to put your hands on the wheel or your foot on the brake or gas pedal. The future of this feature is planned to do the same during highway driving in multiple lanes within 2 years & driving in cities within 4 years.
The goal? Zero emissions & zero fatalities. ProPILOT Assist joins the Nissan Rogue SL Platinum Package that’s comprised of an electronic parking brake & 19″ aluminum-alloy wheels.
2. 1 More USB Port
We know that keeping your tablets and smartphones connected to your vehicle and charged can be important, especially on long road trips. That’s why we’re happy that the 2018 Nissan Rogue now comes with an extra USB port, located in the front center console box, so your family won’t have to fight to get plugged in anymore.
3. Motion-Activated Liftgate
You won’t even need to grab your keys or push a button when trying to put groceries or something heavy you’re using both hands to carry in back, thanks to the motion-activated liftgate. Originally only offered for the Rogue SL, this handy amenity is now offered on the SV as well.
Another new standard feature for the 2018 Nissan Rogue is NissanConnect that makes connecting to your phone even easier. That’s because both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included to allow you to get directions, send & receive texts, make & receive calls and more from your compatible iPhone or Android phone, respectively.
5. Added Safety
If you have a family (or even if you don’t), safety is a high priority on your list of things to look for in a new crossover. If you choose to go for the Rogue SL, you’ll get the following technologies:
- Intelligent Cruise Control to slow down when it senses you’re getting too close to the car in front of you
- Lane Departure Warning & Intelligent Lane Intervention to let you know when your vehicle is going off its intended course
- Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection to help prevent collisions by slowing your vehicle down
6. Midnight Edition
Coming in Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic or Pearl White for the SV trim, the 2018 Nissan Rogue Midnight Edition gives you a blacked-out design along with a few more unique touches. The exclusive appearance of this model comes from:
- Black outside mirror caps, front & rear fascia accents, V-motion grille, roof rails, cross bars, 17” SV aluminum-alloy wheels, “ROGUE” & “SV” rear emblems and license plate finisher
- Splash guards
- Illuminated kickplates
- Midnight Edition floor mats & badging
7. Revised Feature Packages
We know that choosing to get your upgrades in a bundle will give you more for your money. The SV Premium Package not only contains the Nissan Door-to-Door Navigation system, heated leather steering wheel & the Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, but you now can enjoy the previously mentioned Intelligent Cruise Control and memory functionality for the driver’s seat & outside mirrors.
If you want even more, then you should choose the SV Sun and Sound Touring Package. That’s because this bundle contains the features of the Premium Package along with a power panoramic moonroof to let some natural light & extra breeze in and 9-speaker Bose premium audio system with dual woofers for a studio-quality music listening experience.
