The new Rogue Hybrid incorporates the extensive enhancements to the 2017 Rogue, including the refreshed exterior and interior designs, while adding a new gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain.
Rogue Hybrid utilizes Nissan's advanced Intelligent Dual Clutch system. It uses a compact Lithium-ion battery and electric motor to provide supplementary power through its one-motor/two-clutch system. The first of the two clutches is a dry clutch installed between the 4-cylinder engine and the electric motor. The system also includes an Idle Start/Stop system.
The Rogue Hybrid's advanced 2.0-liter engine and 30kW electric motor, connected to the advanced Xtronic transmission, produces fuel economy of up to 33 mpg city, 35 mpg highway and 34 mpg combined (estimated) for front-wheel drive models. Rogue Hybrid all-wheel drive models are rated at 31 mpg city, 34 mpg highway and 33 mpg combined (estimated).
The Rogue Hybrid has a net system horsepower rating of 176 hp (compared to 170 horsepower for the standard Rogue model's 2.5-liter internal combustion engine).
Also standard are Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). Rogue Hybrid is available with an intuitive All-Wheel Drive system or front-wheel drive.
The new 2017 Rogue Hybrid is offered in two grade levels, SV and SL, and with one package – Premium (SV, SL). It will be available by the end of 2016. It is assembled in Smyrna, Tenn.
