    Probably just spinning me as Dan could have said it was powered by a Mr. Fusion as well but we may never know?

    Hi All:

    Found out more from Dan. Nissan brought over one of its Aussie/European-spec Qashqai Turbo Diesels. Same architecture as the Rogue but with “one of dem der hyper ficient oil burners inside.” ;)

    The 1.6L Turbo Diesel mated to an Xtronic CVT: Rated at 48 mpgUS combined down under. Probably about 35 mpgUS combined here???​

    So what do we make of this? Nissan is playing with the 2.8L Cummins in the Frontier, the 5.0L Cummins is destined for the Titan and now they driving a Aussie/Euro spec Rogue/Qashqai around their U.S. HQ. I think we can all do the math and it adds up to "BIG". :)
