The 2020 Rogue again offers progressive, emotive styling. The Nissan signature “V-Motion” grille and headlights with LED signature Daytime Running Lights help enhance Rogue’s robust, dynamic presence. Halogen headlights with auto off function are standard, along with Intelligent Auto Headlights (I-AH). Also available are LED headlights with auto on/off function, High Beam Assist (HBA) and fog lights. In the rear are combination lamps with LED boomerang signature taillights.
Other Rogue exterior highlights include body-color heated outside mirrors with available integrated turn signals, a rear spoiler, privacy glass and roof rails. Rogue’s available power panoramic moonroof offers a wide view of the outside world through its extended length. The front glass panel slides and tilts, while the rear glass panel is fixed. When in the open position, the front panel slides under the fixed second panel. Rogue has a coefficient of drag of 0.33. Rogue SL includes standard aggressive 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels, with 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels available on SV models, rounding out the upscale look.
Every seat except the driver’s easily folds down. The front passenger seat folds rearwards, allowing transport of long items such as an 8-foot ladder when combined with the flat folding 40/20/40-split 2nd row seat. The front bucket seats are a special Zero Gravity design. The driver’s seat is 6-way adjustable, with available power adjustment including lumbar support, while the front passenger seat is 4-way adjustable. The available Quick Comfort™ heated front seats are designed to immediately begin warming the body parts most sensitive to heat, such as the thighs and hips. Leather-appointed seats are standard on SL models. Two interior colors are offered: Charcoal and Almond.
All 2020 Rogue models are equipped with a responsive 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft or torque. The engine is matched with an advanced Xtronic transmission with standard Sport Mode and Eco switches. Fuel economy is rated at 26 mpg city, 33 mpg highway and 29 mpg combined for front-wheel drive models. Rogue AWD models are rated at 25 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 27 mpg combined.
The 2020 Rogue features Nissan’s suite of confidence-inspiring dynamic technologies with Intelligent Trace Control (I-TC), Intelligent Engine Braking (I-EB) and Intelligent Ride Control (I-RC). Rogue also offers standard 4-wheel independent suspension, Electric Power-assisted Steering, 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control System (TCS) and Hill Start Assist.
Four wheel and tire combinations are offered, depending on grade. For 2020, SL grade comes with standard 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with 225/55R19 all-season tires. Rogue SV features 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with 225/65R17 all-season tires or optional 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with 225/60R18 all-season tires.

Rogue is available with a choice of front-wheel drive or an Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system, which can respond and adapt to changing conditions 30 times faster than the blink of an eye. Intelligent AWD initially delivers power to both front and rear wheels for improved grip. Once the vehicle is up to speed, the system sends all of the power up front (100:0 ratio), resulting in higher efficiency. In slick conditions and tight corners, Intelligent AWD automatically transfers the optimal amount of power from front to rear, up to a mix of 50:50 distribution ratio.
The 2020 Nissan Rogue comes in three well-equipped models – S, SV and SL, each in a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Along with the long list of standard features found on Rogue S, the Rogue SV adds 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, privacy glass, Nissan Intelligent Key™ with Push Button Ignition, 8-way power driver’s seat and power driver’s seat lumbar support.
