Standard equipment for the 2013 Rogue includes air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, remote keyless entry, cruise control, trip computer with an outside temperature display, height-adjustable driver's seat, and a 4-speaker stereo with a CD player and an auxiliary audio input jack.

Optional Features
The Rogue S is available with a Special Edition package that adds Bluetooth connectivity, aluminum wheels, fog lights, dark-tinted rear glass, upgraded stereo with satellite radio, USB port, and a 4.3-inch color in-dash display screen equipped with a reversing camera.

These features are standard on the Rogue SV, which also includes larger alloy wheels, roof rails, upgraded exterior trim, Nissan Intelligent Key entry and push-button start, power driver's seat, fold-flat front passenger's seat, and premium cloth upholstery.

These items are included in the SL package, which also adds unique 18-inch wheels, leather, heated front seats, heated side mirrors, xenon HID headlights, and an AroundView 360-degree monitoring system.

Under the Hood
Every 2013 Nissan Rogue is equipped with a 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) delivers power to the front wheels (FWD). All-wheel drive (AWD) is optional.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Nissan Rogue are:

  • Rogue FWD: 23/28/25 mpg (city/highway/combined)
  • Rogue AWD: 22/27/24 mpg

Nissan equips the 2013 Rogue with 6 air bags, 4-wheel vented-disc anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist, and a traction and stability control system. All versions except the base Rogue S include a reversing camera, and the Rogue SV with the SL package comes with a 360-degree AroundView monitoring system.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the 2013 Rogue a 4-star overall crash-test rating (out of 5 stars), but it should be noted that front passenger protection in a frontal-impact collision is rated 3 stars. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has not rated the 2013 Rogue as this overview is written.
