Nissan reworked the Rogue for the 2017 model year to be more attractive to buyers in the highly competitive compact crossover segment. An aggressive new exterior look complements a handsome interior redesign, combined with new-for-Rogue safety features and in-dash technology. Nissan’s goal: to make the Rogue its best-selling model in the U.S. Not surprisingly, Nissan succeeded thanks to these updates and the explosive crossover market. But Nissan isn’t leaving the Rogue alone. For 2018, more enhancements have been added.

"There are so many enhancements to Rogue for 2017, with every one of them designed to enhance its appeal with the fastest growing segment of buyers in the industry," said Michael Bunce, vice president of product planning for Nissan North America. "The crowning achievement is the addition of the new Rogue Hybrid, which increases fuel efficiency without compromising passenger roominess or cargo utility."

And while Nissan should be proud of adding a hybrid model to the Rogue’s lineup, the gasoline-electric won’t likely be the Rogue’s most popular guise. For those interested in the Rogue Hybrid, check out TopSpeed’s full coverage here. No, rather than the new 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 30-kW electric motor, most Rogues will come equipped with the familiar 2.5-liter four-cylinder, CVT Xtronic transmission, and the choice of FWD or AWD.

Since its introduction for the 2008 model year, the Rogue has been growing its annual sales figures by leaps and bounds. Impressively, Nissan moved 287,190 Rogues during the 2015 calendar year – that’s more than the Jeep Cherokee at 220,260 examples sold and far more than either the Hyundai Tucson or Kia Sportage, both of which were under 64,000 units sold. Still, there’s room to grow. Honda’s CR-V leads the pack with 345,600 examples sold in the 2015 calendar year and Ford was right behind with 306,500 examples of the Escape moving off dealer lots.

There’s no doubt 2017’s improvements pushed the Rogue upward in popularity, but 2018’s addition of self-driving tech and a few appearance package options should bring even more customers to Nissan dealerships. Let’s have a detailed look at what Nissan has done with the Rogue for 2018.

Update 10/18/2017: Nissan announced upgrades for the 2018 Rogue, including ProPilot Assist, NissanConnect coming as standard, and changes to the Midnight Edition.
