FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – Nissan today debuted the all-new 2014 Nissan Rogue. For the first time, assembly of this vehicle moves to the U.S. at Nissan's Smyrna, Tenn. plant. More than 900 jobs were added to support the production.
This is the company's fifth totally redesigned model to come out in the last 18 months. The 2014 Rogue follows the all-new Altima, Pathfinder, Sentra and Versa Note. Nissan Division sales, spurred by gains in these top-selling, core-models rose 24.3 percent in August to 108,614 units. This was an August record.
"It was time to refresh our model line. When we went through the 2008 financial crisis, we delayed several products. Our product portfolio was five to six years old, and it was time to bring out the new ones," said Carla Bailo, senior vice president, research and development for Nissan.
The Rogue is Nissan's second best-selling vehicle in the U.S. lineup. This new model has bold new styling, a premium interior meant for multi-tasking, and an array of available technologies.
NissanConnect with Navigation is one available option. NissanConnect Apps can now come on this model for the first time. Class-exclusive Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Warning are also available, so drivers can see 360 degrees around the car and even get warned when something is in the way.
