Published on April 24, 2023

For several years already, the Nissan Rogue has been one of the bestselling SUVs in Canada. If you’re looking for a versatile SUV, it’s impossible to go wrong if you opt for the Rogue.

Come and discover everything there is to know on the 2023 Nissan Rogue, its spec sheet, as well as the prices of its different trim levels.

The Two Engines Available on the 2023 Nissan Rogue

Across its five trim levels, the Nissan Rogue offers two different powertrains. The first is the engine in the Nissan Rogue S, the base model. The second option, more powerful, is the engine that you’ll find inside the four other Rogue trims.

In the Rogue S, the 2.5 L 4-cylinder engine delivers 181 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a CVT and to either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. It’s your pick.

Under the hood of the other Rogue trims, you’ll find a 1.5 L turbocharged 3-cylinder engine instead. This engine generates 201 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque, and it’s paired standard with all-wheel drive.

As for the Nissan Rogue fuel economy, here’s a comparison between these two engines and their performance:

Nissan Rogue Towing Capacity and Cargo Volume

The Rogue is a very practical SUV. It demonstrates a towing capacity and cargo volume that are both very impressive. Once again, Nissan doesn’t disappoint.

The Rogue models that come with a moonroof offer 1,028 L of space behind the back seats. This cargo volume can increase up to 2,064 L by folding down these seats. In other words, this SUV can easily accommodate all your luggage.  

The Nissan Rogue’s towing capacity varies slightly depending on the engine inside. The S model, with its 2.5 L engine, displays a 1,350-pound total capacity. You can take advantage of a 1,500-pound total towing capacity by opting for one of the models equipped with a turbocharged engine.

The Nissan Rogue is a small vehicle, but it packs a punch!

Nissan Rogue Interior and Exterior Design

Since its redesign in 2021, the Nissan Rogue has shown a striking exterior design. This year, it also stands among the vehicles that Nissan offers in a Midnight Edition.

The Midnight Edition gives the Rogue a more elegant style thanks to various black accents on the exterior. This Nissan Rogue trim is equipped with:

  • Distinctive black V-Motion grille
  • 18-inch gloss black aluminum-alloy wheels
  • Leatherette-appointed seats
  • Black emblems
  • And other exclusive elements!

Whether you take advantage of the Midnight Edition or opt for another Rogue trim, you’ll be driving with style. 

Inside, the Rogue is designed just as thoughtfully. For that matter, the interior is one of the key details mentioned by Motortrend in their 2023 Nissan Rogue reviews, where they praise the Rogue as the best compact SUV of the year:

“In addition to a good-sized cargo area, the Rogue's cabin looks and feels nice. That's particularly true of higher-end trims, which offer two-tone color themes, quilted leather upholstery, and ambient lighting.”

  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration (wireless inside the SL and Platinum)
