    2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid - Pricing TBA while offering owners a very attractive estimated 33/35 mpg city/highway rating. At least that is what Nissan reported.

    Miami, Florida -- We have been waiting for this one since I saw its EPA ratings released in the data files. Well tonight at the Miami Auto Show, Nissan revealed more details.

    The 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid now provides a second powertrain choice for the brands compact CUV. Unlike the much anticipated FWD Kia Niro Hybrid and currently available AWD RAV4 Hybrid, the Rogue Hybrid will be available in both a FWD and AWD platform. The 2017 Rogue Hybrid includes the 2017 Rogue's mid-model year exterior and interior refresh , additional safety, security and driving aid technology to go along with its feature packed utility.

    Optional on the 2017 Rogue and Rogue Hybrid is NissanConnect with Navigation, Mobile Apps, and Services, with a 7.0" touch-screen display, Nissan Voice Recognition for NAVI and audio, SiriusXM Travel Link and SiriusXM Traffic (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately), Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection (MOD), radar-based Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and the new-for-2017 Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), and Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection.

    Like all hybrids, the all-new new compact hybrid powertrain takes advantage of an electric motor's instant torque from 0 RPM in combination with a powerful 2.0L ICE mated to a wide ratio Xtronic CVT.


    The 2017 Rogue Hybrid fuel economy is expected to be 33/35/34 mpg city/highway/combined for the FWD model and 31/34/33 mpg city/highway/combined for the AWD variant. Given the compact packaging and combined drivetrain performance, the Rogue hybrid should feels and perform just like the highly regarded non-hybrid model.


    The hybrid system combines an advanced 2.0L 16-valve DOHC aluminum-alloy I4 and a compact Li-Ion battery with a single motor, two-clutch control system. The gasoline engine is rated at 141 hp and 144 lb-ft of torque, while the electric motor is rated at 40 hp and 118 lb-ft of torque. The hybrid system net power is 176 hp.


    At the core of the Rogue Hybrid gasoline-electric hybrid system is Nissan's Intelligent Dual Clutch Control system. The first of the two clutches is a dry clutch installed between the engine and the electric motor, where the torque converter would normally be, and the second is between the motor and Xtronic CVT.

    The high-output Li-Ion battery and clutch control enable smooth launches. An Intelligent Regenerative Braking system partially recharges the battery during vehicle braking and additional fuel economy is provided by an Idle Start/Stop system.

    The compact Li-Ion battery is located under the rear cargo area maintaining the standard Rogue's flat rear floor for easy passenger access to the rear seat and very little loss of of cargo volume.


    The new Rogue Hybrid, the first-ever hybrid powertrain for Rogue, will join the Nissan lineup before the end of 2016.

    Great, but does it have a factory stated towing capacity? I only need 1,000 lbs., but that is make-or-break for me.

    Hi Harrynew:

    I did not see a towing spec for the Rogue Hybrid. :(

    Looks good and I like the MPGs it's similar to the Rav4 Hybrid. But I just can't see myself in a Nissan.

    Well, this new Rogue Hybrid is indeed stunning in appearance although , my family has not tried any Nissan model yet. Maybe, Its time to consider this for our next vehicle.

    Hi NaturalNaturer:

    It should be a good one. The only hit for Nissan is their infotainment is a generation behind most of their competitors. AroundView monitor is ahead however.

    Hi All:

    On the eve of Star Wars “Rogue One” feture, I picked up a 2017 Nissan Rogue SL AWD Hybrid.

    2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid


    The following afternoon and evening, I spent some more time behind the wheel to see Star Wars "Rogue One" thanks to Nissan PR's Wendy M. Orthman and Tim Gallagher. I could not have had a better time. Finally a well written and exciting Star Wars film worth seeing since imho, Return of the Jedi. Driving Nissan's most advanced Rogue made it even better. :)


    About the Rogue Hybrid.

    My favorite part is the atkinsonized 141 hp and 144 lb-ft of torque 2.0L connected to a 40 hp electric motor - powered by a small Li-Ion - and the brand's fuel saving wide ratio Xtronic CVT via dual clutch. Net system output is equivalent to 176 hp which is definitely responsive and efficient with a 31/34 mpg city/highway rating in AWD trim as driven.


    The new for 2017 Rogue Hybrid received the 17 Rogue's refreshed exterior including new front and rear fascias, V-Motion grille, LED DRLs, and Boomerang rear taillamps. The unique 18" alloys, full chrome daylight opening (DLO), and chrome handles make it a looker from all angles. All the cool design elements from the highly regarded Murano in fact.


    Inside, my wife's favorite feature(s) include the panoramic power roof, heavily padded door and center console arm rests, and it's quieter. I like the very softly padded Zero Gravity seats, dual white stitching on the same, shifter console surround, arm rest and center console, and especially the passenger side leather upper dash insert. The Rogue feels upscale without a luxury price tag. The std. 17 Rogue that is since we do not know the Rogue Hybrid price tag just yet.


    All told, Nissan's most popular vehicle to see this year's most popular film was pretty slick. You cannot do much better than that!

    More to come…

    Hi All:

    And a little more detail…

    Our week with the 2017 #Nissan #Rogue #Hybrid has come and gone.

    2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid


    I am enthralled as is my wife, son, and son's GF with the soft foam beneath the leather seating material. Possibly the best I have ever sat in under $40k.

    The soft yet totally progressive nature of the brakes through regen and into the mechanicals is also the best of the best when it comes to hybrid action. I really cannot tell if I am slowing under regen or under the mechanicals. So seamless I suspect the mechanicals are engaging with regen to remove the transition altogether.

    A quieter interior and a better ride and handling quotient over past Rogues I have driven as well. How can an affordable every day CUV corner so flat? F&R stabilizer bars, low friction suspension components, and good EPS tuning maybe?

    Safety? Just over two weeks ago it earned the coveted "Top Safety Pick Plus" (TSP+) crash test rating from the IIHS, the organizations highest designation.

    2017 Nissan Rogue – IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Crash Test Rating


    2017 Nissan Rogue/Rogue Hybrid – NHTSA Crash Test Rating(s)


    The Nissan AroundView Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD) is the best in the business and I wish everyone had their system installed. Many are adding it but they are years late.


    The Auto High Beams (AHB) work excellent. They light approximately 25 degree off each front corner and a sharp cutoff when on the dims keep people from flashing back. They recognize the front and rear of cars and trucks ahead with maybe a 15 to 20 degree offset and never missed. Really good stuff here.

    The 106.8 cu.ft. of passenger volume and 27.3 cu.ft. of cargo volume behind the rear seats is darn competitive with the midsize CUV segment. Rear seat leg and knee room will fall short with a 6+ ft. driver up front however.

    Rear seat leg/knee room comes at a premium. <-- How did he do that? ;)

    $250+ worth of Costco groceries fit easily behind the second row seats.​

    While the rear cargo may be short of the std. Rogue, there are still some hidden compartments ahead of the Li-Ion pack providing a little more.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And the looks? Damn sharp looking exterior with the full V-Motion grille treatment, deep feature lines in the hood, the full chrome surround DLO, and muscular lower black cladding protecting the entire bottom edge of the vehicle from just about anything.

    2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid and Rogue

    You may never see these two in the same trim and color next to each other ever again. :)

    While we are still waiting for pricing, it still has a few shortfalls. It needs Android Auto and Apple CarPlay badly as the OEM embedded NAVI is more than a generation behind the industry standard. A Garmin GUI would do wonders for this system, Traffic feature only hits all the notes about 70 percent of the time whereas Google's Android Auto is dead on every time. When you have service that is.

    Front seat lower cushions need another inch or the entire seat frame needs tilt with the rear dropping down and the front up vs. the Rogue's tilt forward setup as it is currently designed.

    And then the drivetrain. The all-new 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid in AWD trim as driven is possibly rated at 31/34 mpgUS city/highway rating thanks to a downsized and atkinsonized 2.0L I4, small Li-Ion powering a smallish single motor through a dual clutch setup all mated to the brands fuel efficient wide ratio CVT. The systems net power is a healthy 176 hp.

    2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid

    First drive at 48.4 mpg. We have experienced higher from the std. non-hybrid FWD Rogue.​

    Where it will help. For the driver with a light foot, it will best every non-hybrid CUV out there including some of the much more expensive European TDs. If said driver is running the Interstate for 70 percent of his or her drive, I would stick with the possibly lower cost std. 2017 Rogue. I have achieved significantly higher efficiency in the non-hybrid FWD Rogue than the AWD Hybrid - a little apples to oranges comparison here - and imho, 70 percent highway is where you may want to stick with the std. Rogue. The Hybrid drivetrain adds nothing at speeds above 62 mph. At low speeds, it is stronger than that placed in the previous and now defunct Pathfinder Hybrid but it is not strong enough for a lengthy around town EV experience. Where a hybrid can really make the difference. The hardware is there but the sizing and programming are leaving over 10 mpgs on the table. See the latest Hyundai/Kia Hybrid offerings as to the reasons for this statement. If I had just a few weeks with the drivetrain team in Japan...

    All in, this is a great new CUV with segment leading looks both inside and out. Since this is a prototype, maybe, just maybe the engineering folks in Japan were given the green light to optimize what they have and make this thing sing in order to skip the pump and lower its emissions further below that of the std. Rogue.

    Hi Mendel:

    I did not look but the specs state it has a temporary T155/90D17 mini-spare under the cargo floor.

    Hi All:

    This morning Nissan released pricing on the new 2017 Rogue Hybrid. It has a starting price of $26,240 and will be available at Nissan dealers in the West, Northwest and Mountain regions (18 states total).

    2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid


    The 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid SV FWD trim costs $1,000 more than the non-hybrid Rogue SV FWD model.

    The new FWD/AWD 2017 Rogue Hybrid is rated at 33/35/34 and 31/34/33 mpgUS city/highway/combined respectively.

    The new FWD/AWD 2017 Rogue non-hybrid by comparison is rated at 26/33/29 and 25/32/27 mpgUS city/highway/combined respectively.

    2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid and Non-Hybrid Pricing

    Rogue SV FWD Hybrid/Non-Hybrid - $26,240/$25,240
    Rogue SL FWD Hybrid/Non-Hybrid - $31,160/$29,960
    Rogue SV AWD/Non-Hybrid - $27,590 /$26,590
    Rogue SL AWD/Non-Hybrid - $32,510/$31,310

    D&H Charge $940.

    Although I am not a fan of payback comparisons, with just a $1,000 premium for a vehicle that receives 34 vs 29 mpg in the case of the FWD Rogue and $1,200 price premium for a vehicle that receives 33 vs 27 mpg (combined ratings) in the case of the AWD Rogue, the fuel savings is easily justifiable.

    The $1,000 premium 2017 FWD Rogue Hybrid saves 509 gallons - $1,272.50 at $2.50/gallon - vs the 2017 FWD Rogue non-hybrid over 100k miles.

    The $1,200 premium 2017 AWD Rogue Hybrid saves 710 gallons - $1,775 at $2.50/gallon - vs the 2017 AWD Rogue non-hybrid over 100k miles.

    Buy the Hybrid if the final negotiated pricing is just $1k and $1.2k higher than the non-hybrid!

    I am pretty sure the Nissan Rogue Hybrid Product Planning and Marketing teams complete this calculation in even more detail more than a few times when coming up with and than releasing the 2017 Rogue Hybrid pricing this morning. :)
