The Nissan Rogue might have flown below the radar, but that hasn’t stopped Nissan from giving the SUV a refresh for 2011. On the exterior, the Nissan gets the unusual egg crate grille, similar to what we find on the Murano. The foglamps get new surroundings that help the front get a more stylistic look.
On the SL and S Krom Edition, you can choose 18-inch wheels for the first time. With those massive wheels and the chrome grille, this is one shiny machine. Not to mention it looks far better than the old models.
There are also other changes that nobody will likely notice. There are new spats in front of the wheels and a new underbody tray that will cut aerodynamic drag and give a 1-mile per gallon fuel increase. That increase helps the front-wheel drive Rogue get 22/28 mpg, while the all-wheel drive version will manage 22/26.
We will get our first glimpse of the new 2011 Rogue at the Z Car Convention in Nashville, TN which started on the 28th and will continue until August 1.
