2008 Nissan Rogue Press Kit: At a Glance

The 2008 Nissan Rogue, which goes on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide in September 2007, is designed to add a new dimension to the crossover utility segment - satisfying both the functional needs of the buyer and their emotional needs.

Rogue's aggressive, performance-oriented styling, powerful engine, responsive handling, and driver-focused cockpit combine with its thoughtful everyday utility to create a vehicle that shifts the way buyers, especially younger buyers, think about crossover SUVs.

The 2008 Nissan Rogue is available in two models, Rogue S and Rogue SL, each with a standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, Nissan's advanced Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).  An all-new Intuitive All-Wheel Drive system with yaw moment control is also available on both S and SL models.

Rogue's refined interior includes a driver-oriented cockpit, available leather-appointed seating surfaces and a fold-flat front passenger's seat.  Utility is enhanced by numerous convenient storage and ultra-functionality features, including an oversized
partitioned glove box, a large dual-level center console and an innovative rear cargo organizer.  Available technology features include Intelligent Key, Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone System, XM Satellite Radio (subscription required, sold separately) and a powerful Bose–developed audio system with AUX input and MP3 playback.

Rogue also offers a long list of standard safety features, including front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags and roof-mounted curtain supplemental air bags for front and rear outboard occupants.
