The Nissan Rogue is a compact crossover SUV that debuted in October 2007[1] for the 2008 model year, produced by the Japanese automaker Nissan. It is the North American counterpart of the X-Trail sold outside North America (even though it is still sold in Mexico), as well as the Qashqai in Europe and the Dualis in Japan and Australia.

The Nissan Rogue made its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January 7, 2007. It replaces the Nissan X-Trail in Canada as Nissan’s entry-level SUV. An all-new version of the X-Trail, whose platform the Rogue shares, has been launched in Europe and elsewhere, but there are no plans to market it in North America.[citation needed]

The Rogue is powered by a 170 hp (127 kW; 172 PS), 2.5 L four-cylinder QR25DE engine mated to a standard continuously variable transmission.[2], and comes standard with front-wheel-drive. The Rogue costs less than Nissan’s Murano crossover SUV, but at 126.4 cu ft (3.58 m3) vs. 108.8 cu ft (3.08 m3)[3] offers more passenger volume than its V6-powered brother, but a smaller trunk (28.9 cu ft (820 L) vs. 31.6 cu ft (890 L)).

During November 2007, its first full month of sales, the Rogue was Nissan’s third-most popular model, behind the Altima sedan and coupe, and the Sentra compact sedan.[1] 5,650 cars were sold that month, slightly more than a third of that month’s Honda CR-V sales of 16,498 and less than half of that month’s 12,354 Toyota RAV4 sales.

U.S. News & World Report ranked the Rogue exactly in the middle of the 27 “affordable compact” SUVs they rated; its highest marks were for its safety features, while its lowest ratings were for its predicted reliability.[4]
