The 2025 Nissan Rogue is ready for even more adventure both on and off the open roads, with a new rugged Rock Creek edition and the introduction of ProPILOT Assist 2.1 driver assistance technology. These new enhancements to Nissan's popular SUV follow an attractive visual refresh for Rogue and the addition of Google built-in for the 2024 model year.

Rogue's new Rock Creek edition caters to drivers whose lifestyles take them beyond the crowds, with striking design and additional capabilities. With spacious seating for five, the mid-size, AWD SUV makes a bold splash with a unique gloss black front grille featuring silver accents, a redesigned front fascia featuring Lava Red accents, gloss black sideview mirrors, and a tubular roof rack with integrated cross bars also accented in Lava Red. Rock Creek rolls on 235/65R17 Falken Wild Peak all-terrain tires fitted to 17-in. satin black wheels. Interior enhancements include water-repellent leatherette seating with unique inserts, Lava Red accent stitching and piano black dashboard trim.

All Rogue grades feature a standard 1.5-L Variable Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo) engine, which continuously adjusts its compression ratio to seamlessly optimize power or efficiency, depending on driver demand. The 3-cylinder engine is rated for 201 hp and 225 lb-ft of torque. Contributing to best-in-class gas engine fuel economy, standard Idle Stop/Start shuts off the engine when the vehicle is stationary to help save fuel. The engine is paired with an Xtronic CVT.

Rogue Rock Creek adds heated front seats and a 12-V power outlet in the cargo area, and its HD Intelligent Around View Monitor adds an Off-Road View that can operate while driving at speeds up to 12 mph -- an invaluable tool for spotting obstacles when maneuvering. Its standard Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system is supplemented by Hill Descent Control, helping drivers maintain a steady speed when going down steep inclines.

Rogue Rock Creek is available in four color options: Everest White, Super Black, Boulder Gray, and Baja Storm. An available premium package adds a touch of luxury to the adventurous spirit of the Rogue Rock Creek, with a wireless charging pad, heated steering wheel, four-way power passenger seat, motion-activated power liftgate, memory driver's seat and outside mirrors, reverse tilt-down outside mirrors with integrated turn signals, auto dimming rearview mirror, and interior LED accent lighting.

Tech-wise, the 2025 Rogue is the latest vehicle in the Nissan U.S. lineup with available ProPILOT Assist 2.1, which utilizes Google built-in and is part of the company's goal of making its most advanced mobility technology accessible on its popular models. Optional on Rogue SL and Platinum, the system allows attentive drivers to take their hands off the steering wheel in single-lane freeway operation, while ProPILOT Assist 2.1 can handle acceleration, steering assistance, and braking.

Rogue also offers two other levels of driver assistance: ProPILOT Assist is standard on SV and Rock Creek grades, combining Intelligent Cruise Control with Steering Assist. On SL and Platinum, ProPILOT Assist 1.1 enhances the experience by using navigation information to help proactively adjust Rogue's speed ahead of curves and freeway interchanges.

The 2025 Nissan Rogue SL and Platinum also add a more advanced version of the vehicle's Intelligent Around View Monitor this year. The 3D Intelligent Around View Monitor features 3D rotation around the vehicle, allowing drivers even more vantage points to see what's near their Rogue. It's highly convenient for avoiding obstacles when parking or maneuvering in tight spaces.

On the available Technology Package, the system also adds two additional camera angles: Front Wide View, which provides a 176-degree view, ideal for "seeing around" pillars in garages or parked cars on the street; and Invisible Hood View, a first for Nissan in the U.S. market, which uses advanced image processing to take footage from the vehicle's exterior cameras to project a view of the roadway under the engine bay to help with avoiding curbs, placing the vehicle's wheels in a car wash track, and other tricky situations.

All Rogue grades include standard Nissan Safety Shield 360, which includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist, and Rear Automatic Braking. Other standard convenience technologies on Rogue include Rear Door Alert, which can alert drivers to items forgotten in the back seat, and Easy-Fill Tire Alert, which makes topping up tire air pressures simpler.

For entertainment and information along the way, Rogue S, SV, and Rock Creek feature an 8-in. touchscreen infotainment system with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and SiriusXM Radio. Rogue SL and Platinum upgrade to a 12.3-in. touchscreen with Google built-in, seamlessly integrating well-known Google apps -- including Google Assistant, Google Maps, and more on Google Play -- right into Rogue's dashboard. SL and Platinum also have wireless Apple CarPlay, wireless Android Auto, and a wireless charging pad.

The 2025 Nissan Rogue will reach Nissan dealerships later this summer. Pricing will be shared closer to start of sale, according to the company.

Starting prices for 2024 FWD Rogues run from $28,850 for the base S model to $30,540 for the SV, $35,700 for the SL, and $39,130 for the Platinum. 2024 AWD Rogues start at $30,350 for the base S model to $32,040 for the SV, $37,200 for the SL, and $40,630 for the Platinum.

We think the 2025 Rock Creek model will start somewhere around $45,000 to $48,000.
