While the Philippine market still gets the pre-updated model, the American market on the other hand shall have a taste of this all-new model.

The 2021 Nissan Rogue is run by a 2.5-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine, producing a healthy 181 hp and 245 Nm of torque. The said mill is then paired with the brand’s Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
