With the current model selling at a record pace, Nissan already is working to meet demand for the all-new 2014 Nissan Rogue with a special reservation program. During the promotional offer, which runs through Nov. 12, 2013, customers who reserve a 2014 Nissan Rogue will receive a $250 gift card from the automaker (or an introductory lease rate of $239 per month). * Drivers have to take delivery of their new Rogues by March 31, 2014, but they will no doubt be eager to do so.
That’s because the brand-new compact crossover will be priced from $22,490 and offer benefits like:
- All-new exterior and interior design, including LED exterior lighting and the only available three-row/seven-passenger cabin configuration in the compact crossover class
- A powertrain that combines a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission to provide 170 hp, a best-in-class 175 lb.-ft. of torque, and an also best-in-class 33 mpg highway (with full EPA grades to come)
- Superior levels of technology, courtesy of features such as the NissanConnect system with navigation and access to NissanConnect apps, as well as key safety measures including blind-spot warning, lane-departure warning and forward-collision warning
- Enhanced driving dynamics enabled by Active Trace Control, Active Engine Braking and Active Ride Control
As you can tell by that partial list of content, the 2014 Nissan Rogue represents a significant upgrade over the 2013 model in nearly every area, and it must be noted that that does include starting price. The redesigned Rogue still offers a very competitive MSRP, but let’s take a quick peek at the ranking to see where it now stands in relation to the rest of its rivals.

2014 Nissan Rogue Pricing Comparison
The 2014 Nissan Rogue’s previously mentioned MSRP of $22,490 is a steep $2,180 higher than that of the outgoing model, yet because of conditions in the compact crossover segment, it does remain the least expensive next-gen entry in the country. More specifically, the Rogue slots into the segment’s pricing hierarchy as follows (with the base versions’ automatic highway ratings thrown in for good measure):
- 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport—$24,700; 29 mpg
- 2014 Chevrolet Equinox—$24,360; 32 mpg
- 2014 Kia Sorento—$24,100; 26 mpg
- 2014 Toyota RAV4—$23,300; 31 mpg
- 2014 Honda CR-V—$22,945; 31 mpg
- 2014 Ford Escape—$22,700; 31 mpg
- 2014 Nissan Rogue—$22,490; 33 mpg
- 2014 Dodge Journey—$19,495; 26 mpg
The party line from Fred Diaz, divisional vice president of Sales and Marketing for Nissan North America: "Rogue's bold, dynamic new styling is going to generate tremendous attention. And once buyers take a look inside at the roomy, premium interior and experience the long list of affordable technologies, we know they'll be delighted."
