2021 Nissan Rogue: just a few more pictures.




This seems to get more and more impressive with each new picture.
Nothing dramatic, or really new. It just seems like a very nice package most people would like.
The key to a big hit for Nissan.

Except for people who are looking for a hybrid or even a plug-in hybrid.
Which, most competitors now offer. I have no idea why Nissan is so behind offering hybrids. I test drove the "old" Nissan Altima Hybrid many years ago and loved it. 
They seem to have given up on the technology while others have been getting better and better (The Accord Hybrid is wonderful)
Why???

In a couple of years, everyone will offer a hybrid option, or even make it standard (Toyota is getting there very quickly)
And, again, Nissan will be late...
Let's hope they do have something up their sleeves.
As the new Rogue looks like it could really keep the momentum going for them...

A 40MPG new Rogue would be very tempting for most buyers. And a big threat to its competition.

You are very repetitive, Vince. We get it. You're upset that they're not offering a hybrid version. Now move on.

Hopefully they will put the E-Power serial hybrid system in the Rogue.

More of an evolutionary design not so much revolutionary. Looks good though

Because gas is so cheap now, hybrids are not worth the extra cost. Also, with the trend of working from home, gas prices will continue to stay low for a long time.

This does look like a much stronger contender than the current Rogue. Now if they would just get rid of the CVT, I would highly consider it for my next vehicle.

Man... you are really pushing the hybrid thing... Hybrids have never sold in enough numbers for Nissan. If anything e-Power may show up at some point. And it's not uncommon to stagger launches of powertrains.
