Everybody wants to keep their family safe while on the road without sacrificing comfort and convenience. Nowadays, more and more vehicles are coming equipped with available safety features that put the cars of our parents’ generation to shame, but you have to pay extra to get them. Thankfully, families don’t have to compromise their budgets in order to ensure the safety of their loved ones with the 2021 Nissan Rogue. In fact, the 2021 Nissan Rogue comes standard with the most safety features in its class, ensuring you don’t have to decide between those extra airbags or next month’s house payment.
However, the Nissan Rogue is about more than just safety. The Rogue is also a comfortable and fuel-efficient crossover that saves you money at the fuel pump as well as at the dealership. For a crossover, the Rogue gets a pretty impressive fuel economy. Throw in the spacious cargo room and the top-notch horsepower, and you’ve got yourself a first-class vehicle. Let’s take a look at what exactly the 2021 Nissan Rogue has to offer.
Nobody wants to sacrifice performance just to save a buck, and with the 2021 Nissan Rogue, now you don’t have to. Thanks to the unique technologies that come standard in the 2021 Rogue, your engine not only works hard to get you some of the best fuel economy out of all available crossovers, but you can achieve all this while still getting 181 horsepower. All of this is possible because of the continuously variable valve timing control system and direct injection gasoline features that each 2.5L engine comes equipped with. But what does this actually mean?
In short, the continuously variable valve timing control system makes it so that your engine burns more efficiently and at the proper times. Your engine can now lower fuel burn rates without sacrificing power to the engine due to a slight change in timing intervals. This is a revolutionary technology that is a big part of why this Nissan crossover has so much power and fuel economy.
The 2021 Rogue comes with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive options, so you can get the vehicle that works best for you. If you opt for the all-wheel drive option, your Rogue will also have the ability to swap into two-wheel drive mode when needed, so you can still get the best fuel economy you can while having that extra power and traction available when you need it most. The 2021 Rogue has five drive modes, including sport mode, off-road mode, snow mode, auto mode, and eco mode, so that you can adjust your drive to your conditions. With all these modes, you can easily take your Rogue everywhere you want it to go.
Live on a dirt road that got turned into a muddy swamp in the latest rainstorm? No problem. Blizzard conditions leave the road an icy mess? The Nissan Rogue has that under control too. Plus, if the roads are sporting perfectly normal conditions, the economy mode allows you to maximize your fuel economy, so you don’t have to worry about spending extra money on fuel unnecessarily.
If you are worried about gas prices, you might want to consider a 2021 Nissan Rogue for its excellent fuel economy. SUVs are a vehicle that gets you the best of both worlds, with the space of a larger vehicle and the gas mileage of a sedan. The 2021 Nissan Rogue is no exception when it comes to giving you the most bang for your buck in terms of fuel.
The front-wheel drive 2021 Nissan Rogue gets around 27 MPG in the city and an impressive 35 MPG on the highway, rounding to an efficient 30 MPG combined. These numbers are great for families or commuters who find themselves doing a lot of driving, as you will find yourself visiting the gas pump less and less. Front-wheel drive comes standard with the 2021 Nissan Rogue, so everybody has the ability to take advantage of this excellent fuel economy.
However, some people need their crossovers to have a little more traction, so the 2021 Nissan Rogue is also available in all-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive Nissan Rogue does not get horrible gas mileage either. Coming in at an estimated 26 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway, drivers will still enjoy a combined 29 MPG, only 1 MPG less than the front-wheel drive models. This is thanks in part to the Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission that changes the gears based on driving conditions and minimizes the amount of fuel that needs to be used.
Each 2021 Nissan Rogue comes standard with a top-notch suite of standard safety features known as the Safety Shield 360. When it comes to keeping your precious cargo safe on the road, there is no better option than the Nissan Rogue. Included within the Safety Shield 360 are six standard features designed to keep your vehicle on the road where it belongs and out of contact with any other object.
To begin, there is the automatic emergency braking technology with pedestrian detection. The idea behind automatic emergency braking technology is that sometimes unexpected things happen while driving, and the driver is not always able to respond quickly enough, so the car does it for them. With automatic braking, your vehicle can sense when there is a potential obstacle around the vehicle and can assist the driver in applying more pressure to the brakes or even stop the car entirely if a pedestrian is detected. In addition to braking, this system can also send you an alert to slow down if you are following too closely to the car in front of you.
Working in tandem with the automatic emergency braking is the rear automatic braking system. This feature scans the area behind your car for large stationary items that you may not be able to see. If the systems detect a potential collision and you fail to react, the system will apply the brakes for you.
Blind spot warning and lane departure warning are two more technologies that come with the Safety Shield 360 on each Nissan Rogue. No matter how good of a driver you are, it is virtually impossible to keep your eyes on everything at once. These technologies are designed to forewarn you if an unexpected vehicle is in your blind spot when you want to merge or if you begin leaving your lane unintentionally. These technologies are especially useful in avoiding side-swiping accidents. There is also the addition of a rear cross traffic alert that watches your surroundings when you are backing out of a parking space and will alert you if there is a car coming up behind you.
Being a good driver is important, and all of the aforementioned safety features of the Nissan Rogue go a long way in keeping you and your family out of harm’s way. However, one safety feature you may not think is useful at first is the high beam assist. This feature can automatically dim the high beams on your Nissan Rogue if it detects another car and turns them back on after the vehicle has passed. This is useful for both yourself in that you don't have to focus on turning your high beams on and off, plus other drivers will be thankful that you aren't unintentionally blinding them at night. It's a win-win for everyone.
While the 2021 Nissan Rogue does have some impressive standard safety features, if you wanted to opt for some advanced features, you won't be disappointed. Higher trim levels of the Rogue will come with some of the Nissan Intelligent Driving systems that take safety that much further. The Intelligent Forward Collision Warning monitors two cars ahead of yours, so if the car in front of the one you are following slows down, you will have more than enough time to react.
Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention and Lane Intervention work to monitor your position and keep you in your lane whether you are about to hit a car in your blind spot or are just drifting. You can also enjoy all around sonar, Intelligent Driver Alertness, and Traffic Sign Recognition. The safety possibilities seem endless for the 2021 Nissan Rogue.
