The all-new X Trail (Rogue) crossover is the first of five new or redesigned Nissan models that will enter production in the next year. It follows Altima, Sunny, Sentra and TITAN, which were all recently redesigned.
Powered by a standard 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine with Nissan’s Direct Injection Gasoline system. Horsepower is rated at 181, an increase of 11 hp. Torque is increased by 6 lb.-ft. to 181 lb.-ft. The new engine includes mirror bore coating, a variable displacement oil pump, and an integrated exhaust manifold and e-VTC intake valve among other refinements.
The new suspension design features a rigid mount (six mounting points) and a new multi-link rear. Braking is provided by standard 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System.
X Trail will be offered in well-equipped S, SV and SL grade levels. For 2021, a new Platinum grade is added, featuring quilted semi-aniline leather-appointed seating, the full 12.3-inch Digital Dashboard meter display, head-up display, heated rear seats, ambient lighting, wireless charging pad, ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link, Bose Premium Audio System, Nissan Door-to-Door Navigation and more.
The enhanced Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system uses a new electro-hydraulic controlled clutch as well, which can control torque more accurately and quickly by predicting front wheel slippage, making torque distribution to the rear more responsive.
Front and rear Nissan Zero Gravity seats provide comfortable support whether the destination is close or far away. Leather-appointed seating is standard on Rogue SL, with quilted semi-aniline leather-appointed seating standard on the Platinum grade. Three interior color choices are offered: Charcoal, Gray and Tan.
The combination of a full-color 10.8-inch head-up display, 12.3-inch “Digital Dashboard” gauge cluster and large, floating 9.0-inch touch screen display allows X Trail drivers to customize and enhance the driving experience.
The 2021 X Trail goes on sale at Nissan dealers worldwide in fall 2020.
