Nissan Rogue Fuel Economy and Power

2021 Nissan RogueThe 2021 Rogue gets a standard EPA-estimated 27 city/35 highway MPG.1 However, if you opt for the upgraded traction and control of the available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system, you’ll get an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway MPG.1 The Rogue also comes with a 14.5-gallon fuel tank, so you can make the most of this efficient MPG rating.

The available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is more than just capable—it’s also fuel-efficient. It’ll give you all-wheel power when accelerating and once you’re up to speed, it will cruise efficiently with the front wheels. When it detects a loss of traction, it will reroute power to the wheels with the most grip, so you can tackle slick streets with confidence.

Under the hood, the Rogue is outfitted with a 2.5L DOHC 4-cylinder engine that churns out 181 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. It’s partnered with an Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission), which provides seamless shifting for a more comfortable ride. Most importantly, however, this transmission increases fuel efficiency.

If you’re planning on bringing some extra gear along on your next adventure, the 2021 Nissan Rogue can also help you efficiently haul a small utility trailer or a few dirt bikes. It has a maximum towing capacity of 1,350 pounds when properly equipped.

2021 Nissan Rogue Efficient Technologies

2021 Nissan Rogue techThe Nissan Rogue is full of advanced technologies that help boost its MPG rating. One of the most notable is the standard Xtronic CVT®. How does it work? Let’s find out!

Traditional transmissions have fixed gear ratios. However, the Xtronic CVT® uses what’s known as “stepless” shifting. Two pulleys with a steel belt running between them continuously vary its gear ratios. This helps draw just the right amount of power from the engine, so you can enjoy a maximized MPG rating. Plus, it avoids “gear-shock,” so you’ll have a smooth ride.

Another advanced feature you’ll have is the Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS). This helps optimize intake and exhaust valves, so your engine can run off the ideal combination of air and fuel. This also optimizes combustion, which will give you the power you need while conserving fuel.

Finally, there’s Eco and Sport Modes, which come standard on all Nissan Rogue trim levels. They adjust the powertrain, so you can enjoy performance based on your mood. If you’re looking for some more excitement, shift into Sport Mode. If you need better fuel economy, activate Eco Mode.

How Much Can It Handle?

Nissan RogueWe’ve seen that the 2021 Rogue has the MPG rating to keep you moving, but does it have enough space to keep your gear and all your friends moving, too? Let’s find out!

There’s seating for up to five passengers, with a total passenger volume of 105.4 cubic feet. That’s plenty of wiggle room for everyone. Plus, the available Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control and standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration are there to keep everyone comfortable and connected.

When you need to pack up for a road trip, the available motion-activated liftgate makes it easy to load everything inside—even when your hands are full. There’s 36.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. If you lower the rear seats, you open up 74.1 cubic feet of cargo volume. Plus, staying organized will be a breeze, with the standard Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System.

The Rogue also has a long list of safety features that’ll give you more peace of mind, whether you’re transporting people or have cargo in tow. Standard Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert will keep an eye out for approaching vehicles, so you can back out of tight parking spots, change lanes, and merge onto the open road with ease.

Fuel Saving Tips

If you’re interested in fuel efficiency, researching the 2021 Nissan Rogue MPG is a great place to start. There are also a few things you can do on your daily drives, like checking the seal of the gas cap and clearing out extra cargo, which may help maximize your vehicle’s miles per gallon.

You’ll also want to go easy on the gas pedal and give the Rogue ample time to speed up. This will help minimize drag, so the engine won’t have to work as hard to get up to speed. This also helps give you more time to come to a stop, as heavy braking pressure tends to consume more fuel.

Slowing down will help boost the MPG rating of your Nissan Rogue as well. Studies show that for every five fewer miles per hour you cruise at highway speeds, you save your vehicle’s fuel consumption by an estimated seven percent.

You’ll also want to keep up with the vehicle’s regularly scheduled maintenance. When every component in your SUV is performing at its best, you’ll experience optimal efficiency. Changing the oil and maintaining proper tire inflation are two of the easiest ways to maximize MPG ratings. Getting a front-end wheel alignment can help, too.
