The 2023 Nissan Rogue is entering the market with a few changes after undergoing an extensive redesign and engineering rethink in 2021. It’s hard to deny the Rogue is Nissan’s most popular vehicle in the United States, and it has mainly to do with how it looks. But then again, the Nissan Rogue has genuine substance underneath its well-rounded sheet metal while offering excellent value for the money with its great tech and safety features.

2023 Nissan Rogue: What’s New?
Nissan ditched the naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine from the Rogue lineup in 2022. Taking its place is a more potent (and more fuel efficient) 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine with 201 horsepower, 225 lb-ft. of torque, and a combined 33 mpg. This same engine will see action across all trim variants of the 2023 Rogue.
Although small, Nissan’s three-cylinder includes the automaker’s variable compression technology. The engine can alter its compression ratio as you go along to either save fuel or provide better thrust at your behest. Helping save more gas is a CVT automatic with wider gear ratios. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available for all trim levels.
New for the 2023 Nissan Rogue SV is a Midnight Edition package, a styling upgrade that includes gloss black 18-inch wheels, blacked-out exterior accents, and TailorFit leatherette upholstery, to name a few. Moreover, the Rogue Platinum and SL Premium are standard with Amazon Alexa connectivity.
