Every driver in the Saint Louis region wants a vehicle that can handle snow, mud, and other sorts of inhospitable terrain. This means that if you’ve started to explore the new Nissan Rogue, “is the Nissan Rogue AWD?” was probably one of the first questions that came to mind! Although this feature isn’t offered standard, drivers can rest assured: Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is an optional upgrade right from the start. The additional security and capability will run you about $1,350 no matter which trim level you select.

Nissan Rogue AWD Lock

Nissan SUVs are distinguished by a unique AWD lock feature, which syncs up the front and rear wheels in order to maximize traction on particularly rough roads. When your Nissan Rogue AWD Lock is turned on, a small light illuminates the AWD symbol in your instrumentation cluster. Here are a few things to note when employing the system:

  • Nissan AWD Auto is designed for normal pavement, slippery roads, and high speeds. Nissan AWD Lock is designed only for especially rough terrain, traversed at low speeds. Switch between the two with the press of a button.
  • Nissan AWD Lock functions only at speeds of 18 mph or fewer.
  • You may also experience an AWD error in your Nissan Rogue. If you accelerate beyond 20 mph when AWD lock is active, it will disengage automatically.
  • If your AWD warning light comes on, Nissan recommends that you stop and let the engine idle until the light goes off. Then, you may continue driving. If it happens often, you may want to have your system checked by a local St. Louis Nissan dealer.

Nissan Rogue Fuel Economy

The Nissan Rogue is one of the more fuel-efficient compact SUVs you can find on the road today, and that’s true whether you opt for front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive:

  • Nissan Rogue FWD Fuel Economy: 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway
  • Nissan Rogue AWD Fuel Economy: 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway

An Xtronic® Continuously Variable Transmission is standard across all models.
