Scoop: All-New Nissan Rogue and Possibly X-Trail SUV

Here we have the first scoop pictures of the next iteration of the North American Nissan Rogue, and if our information is correct, the new global market X-Trail as well. This prototype was nabbed while undergoing hot weather testing in Death Valley.

Nissan may have plastered the Rogue’s body with more tape than an Egyptian mummy, but it can’t hide the similarities to last year’s Hi Cross Concept study that was shown both in Europe and in the USA, something doesn’t come to as a surprise as this was something we anticipated.

Besides the more interesting design over the uninspired current model, the next Rogue will ride on Nissan’s new and modular “CMF” chassis and will likely be offered with the latest Altima’s tweaked 2.5-liter QR25 four-cylinder unit producing 182hp (+7hp) and a peak torque of 180 lb-ft connected to a reworked Xtronic CVT. A hybrid version sporting Nissan’s supercharged 2.5-liter unit may also be in the cards.

Possible venues for the world premiere of the Rogue include this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, while the X-Trail could be shown even earlier in Frankfurt, unless Nissan prefers the 2013 edition of the Tokyo Motor Show or the 2014 Geneva Auto Salon.
