How is the 2021 Nissan Rogue different from the 2020 Rogue? 

By any measure, the Nissan Rogue is one of the best-selling crossover SUVs in the United States, an achievement that is all the more impressive given the breadth and depth of the industry segment. For the upcoming 2021 model year, the manufacturer has finally given its most popular vehicle platform a muchneeded redesign. So, how is the 2021 Nissan Rogue different from the 2020 Rogue? Obviously, the 2021 Rogue has been redesigned from the ground up. But, what does that really mean? A team of Billion Auto Group product experts got together to examine the fine details of both versions and came away with some surprising results. Let’s take a look at what they found.

2021 Rogue vs. 2020 Rogue Performance Specs 

Both the 2021 Nissan Rogue and 2020 Nissan Rogue use similar powertrains, a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that is attached to a Nissan Xtronic continuously variable transmission. However, the 2021 Rogue will produce 181 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. A 2020 Rogue will make 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. 

Additionally, the 2021 Nissan Rogue can post an estimated 27 miles per gallon in the city and 35 miles per gallon on the highway. By comparison the 2020 Rogue will produce 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. It might not seem like much of a change, but over the life of a vehicle, these savings on fuel costs can add up to real money. 

Cargo Volume Differences 

The ability to move people and cargo is always going to be a make-or-break element for any crossover SUV. Nissan has made 39.3 cubic-feet of cargo volume available behind the rear seat of both the 2021 and 2020 Rogue models. However, folding that rear seat down will reveal 74.1 cubic-feet in the 2021 Rogue, versus 70 cubic-feet in the 2020 version.
