Nissan Announces U.S. Pricing for 2018.5 Rogue Sport – Automatic Emergency Braking Now Standard on all Models

Mid-year changes also add standard Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan today announced that the popular Rogue Sport is now available with standard Auto Emergency Braking (AEB), Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) on all 2018.5 models. The mid-year update also includes standard Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) on the Rogue Sport SL grade. ICC has also been added to the SV Technology Package. The 2018.5 Rogue Sport is available now at Nissan dealers nationwide.

Rogue Sport joins seven other 2018 Nissan models, representing more than one million sales, in offering standard Automatic Emergency Braking – Altima, LEAF, Maxima, Murano, Pathfinder, Rogue and Sentra. Automatic Emergency Braking, which can help avoid or reduce the severity of potential frontal collisions, is an element of Nissan Safety Shield technologies.

“We’re making Automatic Emergency Braking standard across all grades of our best-selling models, including the exciting and affordable Rogue Sport. It’s part of our comprehensive vision for helping reduce fatalities known as Nissan Intelligent Mobility,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc.

The 2018.5 Rogue Sport is offered in front-wheel and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive configurations, and in three well-equipped grade levels – S, SV and SL.

The Rogue Sport shares many of the design, utility and technology attributes that have made Rogue Nissan’s best-selling vehicle in the United States. Rogue Sport is slightly smaller, sportier and more affordable for younger, urban SUV buyers than Rogue. These buyers are looking for much more space than a compact sedan, while still seeking the maneuverability and fun-to-drive feel that Rogue Sport delivers.

As fitting of the Rogue Sport name, its fun-to-drive performance credentials are achieved by a combination of a 141-horsepower 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder engine, Xtronic transmission with Eco Mode switch and a 4-wheel independent suspension.

Available technology includes RearView Monitor, Siri® Eyes Free, NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps, 7.0-inch color touch-screen display, Nissan Voice Recognition for navigation and audio, SiriusXM® Travel Link and SiriusXM® Traffic (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM® (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately).

Other available features include Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant, Streaming audio via Bluetooth® and Remote Engine Start2, Intelligent Around View® Monitor (I-AVM), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Intelligent Lane Intervention (I-LI).
