2022 Nissan Rogue vs 2021 Nissan Rogue

Serving Troy, MI

Are you debating between the 2021 Nissan Rogue and the 2022 version? In 2021, the Rogue’s third-generation debuted. Because of this generational update, you will find modern styling and features throughout both model years. However, there are a few important updates to the 2022 Rogue that you should explore before you finalize your buying plans. The sales team at Suburban Nissan of Troy is standing by to help you experience the difference these updates will make to your time behind the wheel.


The most substantial changes that you will find to the 2022 Rogue are located under the hood. The four trim levels offered for the 2021 Rogue receive 181 horsepower from a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine. These are front-wheel drive vehicles also outfitted with a continuously variable transmission. An all-wheel drive drivetrain is an option. In 2022, all trims draw 201 horsepower from a three-cylinder, turbocharged 1.5-liter engine. This new engine is paired with a revamped transmission. Specifically, the CVT has broader gear ratio coverage. Front-wheel drive continues to be standard, and all-wheel drive is offered for the 2022 model year.


You will not notice any changes to the Rogue’s façade between the 2021 and 2022 versions. This crossover SUV reflects tall, confident dimensions with smoothly defined accentuation over the side panels and hood. The nose is proud and rounded. The chrome-outlined, V-motion grille is a dominant feature, accompanied by stunning headlights. These are angled LED headlights that feature a two-part design for distinction. The sides show a flared accent on the lower panels and a strong definition around the rear fender.


The Rogue is well-equipped across all trims for both of these model years. Regardless of the model year and trim level selected, your Rogue will have equipment like a lane departure warning, a blind-spot monitor, forward collision mitigation, a rear cross-traffic alert, safe-exit assist, rear auto braking, a touch display screen, satellite radio, USB ports, and smart device connectivity. If you choose a higher trim level, your Rogue may come with a wireless internet connection, remote engine start, a surround-view camera, leather upholstery, a hands-free liftgate, driver’s side memory settings, a power liftgate, a sunroof, keyless entry, adaptive cruise control, and additional features.
