the 2021 nissan rogue doesn’t share much with its immediate predecessor, but its prices look surprisingly similar. the 2021 rogue will start at $26,745, which is only $160 higher than the base price for the 2020 model, and it adds a new top trim level, platinum. this addition causes the new rogue to top out at $36,525, which is considerably more than the sl trim on the 2020—the top trim last year—but it also offers much more.
the rogue has received thorough updates for 2021, which we got to experience firsthand. in addition to a sleeker look and a revamped interior, its driving dynamics were vastly improved from 2020, which was one of the most prominent marks against the outgoing model. the improved interior also serves to make it more competitive in its segment.
the sv model gets a $470 price increase and now starts at $28,345, and the sl model is $160 more expensive, starting at $33,095. the rogue still comes standard with front-wheel drive, and adding all-wheel drive to any trim costs $50 more, at $1400 for the option. the infotainment gets a much needed update, a 8.0-inch touchscreen; the sl and platinum models come available with a 9.0-inch screen. the platinum trim also comes with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a 10.8-inch head-up display.
