New Entry-Level Nissan Rogue to Hit Stage at NAIAS; A New Small Crossover will also Make U.S. Debut
Nissan will bring some new metal to the NAIAS in Detroit when it opens to the press next week. What new models will Nissan debut at the show? According to reports by Automotive News, Nissan will launch a new Rogue Select, an entry-level variant of the brand's best-selling Rogue crossover.
The new Nissan Rogue Select will be priced at the low end of the popular crossover’s pricing structure and is expected to attract even more buyers to the brand. The previous-generation Rogue had the low-end model and now the new 2018 Rogue will get the entry-level variant.
Nissan’s next model will be all-new to the U.S. market. According to Car Scoops, Nissan will bring the smaller Qashqai crossover to the Detroit auto show. The Qashqai has been a best-seller in Europe and the UK, and Nissan thinks it will also be a big hit in the U.S. market.
The Nissan Qashqai is smaller than the Rogue, and doesn’t have a third row. It’s expected to compete with the Honda HR-V, Ford EcoSport and Toyota C-HR. It will likely make its dealer launch in 2018, but there’s no confirmation on any name change from the quirky Qashqai nameplate.
Mid-size truck buyers are expecting Nissan to reveal something about the next-generation Nissan Frontier pickup. It’s unlikely Nissan will unveil the new pickup in Detroit. The new 2018 Nissan Frontier is expected to make its reveal sometime in 2017. Nissan is bringing new crossover models to NAIAS. Expect to see the new 2018 Rogue Select and the smaller Nissan Qashqai crossover. Stay tuned.
