2013 Nissan Rogue S AWD Review: Engines and Fuel Economy
- The 2013 Nissan Rogue is unchanged from the 2012 model.
All versions of the 2013 Nissan Rogue come with the same 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine. Tuned to provide 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, this unit is yoked to a continuously-automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard with the Rogue, while all-wheel drive can be added as an option. Official fuel economy for the all-wheel drive model that we drove is listed at 22-mpg in city driving and 27-mpg on the highway, but we weren't able to do better than 15-mpg in snowy, city driving over the course of a week. Given that a lot of the time we piloted the Rogue with the all-wheel drive system 'locked,' the lower figure makes sense.
