2018 Nissan Rogue adds advanced ProPILOT Assist technology – the foundation for autonomous vehicles of the future
•Rogue remains Nissan's top-selling vehicle, setting records throughout 2017 model year
•Enhancements for 2018 include addition of available ProPILOT Assist1 and standard NissanConnectSM featuring Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™
•Dramatic Midnight Edition package offers expanded content, including black V-motion grille and black front and rear fascias
•Offered in three well-equipped gasoline engine-equipped grade levels
To say that Rogue has been on a roll would be an understatement. Already the number one selling Nissan model throughout the 2017 model year, the mid-year arrival of the all-new Rogue Sport strengthened both total Rogue sales and the Rogue brand.
For the 2018 model year, Rogue is on the move again – led by the addition of available ProPILOT Assist technology, which provides assisted steering, braking and accelerating during single-lane highway driving. ProPILOT Assist is the foundation for the autonomous vehicles of the future, helping drivers stay centered in the lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic, maintain a set vehicle speed and maintain a set distance to the vehicle ahead. And, it is all done with a simple two-button operation. ProPILOT Assist is available on the 2018 Rogue SL grade as part of the Platinum Package. Among the other enhancements to the 2018 Rogue are:
•NissanConnect featuring Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ and one additional ÚSB port (inside front center console box) added to all grades
•Standard Motion-Activated Liftgate added to SV grade (in addition to SL grade)
•SL grade adds standard Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Intelligent Lane Intervention (I-LI) and Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection
•Revised Midnight Edition Package (SV grade) with new black front and rear fascia accents, black rear license plate finisher, black V-motion grille, black emblems
•New S Value Package (replaces Appearance Package, late availability)
•SV Sun and Sound Touring Package revised to include Premium Package content
•Revised SV Premium Package with added Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) and memory driver's seat and outside mirrors
•Revised SL Platinum Package with ProPILOT Assist (Intelligent Cruise Control with full speed range and hold, steering assist) and electronic parking brake (replaces foot release parking brake)
•Two new exterior colors: Scarlet Ember and Midnight Pine
As in previous years, the Rogue offers exceptional passenger and cargo flexibility with its innovative EZ Flex Seating System™ and Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System. The 2018 Rogue is available in three well-equipped grade levels: S, SV and SL.
Refined exterior design
The Midnight Edition Package, introduced in mid-2017, is upgraded this year with additional 'blackout' features. The full list of special equipment now includes black outside mirror caps, black front and rear fascia accents, black V-motion grille, black roof rails, black rear license plate finisher, black 'ROGÚE' rear emblem, black 'SV' rear emblem, 'Midnight Edition' badge, black 17-inch SV aluminum-alloy wheels, black cross bars, splash guards, Midnight Edition floor mats and illuminated kickplates. The Midnight Edition Package is offered on Rogue SV and SV with Premium Package grades in Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic and Pearl White exterior colors.
The 2018 Rogue again offers a desirable combination of compact overall size and ample interior roominess. Details such as wide-opening (77 degrees) rear doors for easier entry and exit to the rear passenger space add to its utility – along with available Motion-Activated Liftgate – making Rogue the perfect vehicle for everyday use and family adventure getaways. The Motion-Activated Liftgate, standard on Rogue SV and SL grades, uses a kick sensor system to provide easy, comfortable and secure operation – both opening and closing of the tailgate.
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.

Advanced ProPILOT Assist
The 2018 Nissan Rogue's new ProPILOT Assist1 eases driver workload by reducing the amount of driver acceleration, steering and braking input under certain driving conditions. To activate the system, the driver simply pushes the blue ProPILOT Assist ON button, which is integrated into the right-side steering wheel spoke. Step two is to set the Intelligent Cruise Control when the desired speed is reached, as with a normal advanced cruise control system.
When lane markers are consistently detected, steering assist engages and the steering wheel/lane marker icons on the instrument panel turn green. Both right and left hand markers need to be detected by the front camera. Steering assist will engage or disengage depending on the visibility or presence of lane markers, though the Intelligent Cruise Control will remain active. If the vehicle comes to a complete stop in a traffic jam situation for more than three seconds, the driver just presses the resume button or taps the accelerator pedal to begin moving again.
Tuned specifically for Ú.S. roads, ProPILOT Assist is designed to be more intuitive and user-friendly compared to other driver-assist technologies. It can potentially help lessen driver fatigue and create a more confident driving experience – especially for drivers who experience heavy highway traffic on a daily basis. It utilizes a forward-facing camera, forward-facing radar, sensors and electronic control module to help the driver stay in the center of the driving lane and to maintain vehicle speed (set by the driver) or help maintain a gap to the preceding vehicle if the vehicle speed drops below the driver-set speed. It also can slow the vehicle to a complete stop and holds the vehicle during traffic jam conditions.
Steering assist is cancelled in inclement weather if the windshield wipers are in the low or high position (if lane lines can be detected, the system can remain active when the wipers are in the intermittent mode or if the mist function is activated).
The driver's input always takes priority, overriding the system when the steering wheel is turned or the turn signal is operated (steering assistance goes into a temporary standby mode). The system also goes into temporary standby mode when the accelerator pedal is pressed. The system's Intelligent Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assistance are both cancelled when the brakes are applied.
In addition to the 2018 Rogue, ProPILOT Assist is also available on the all-new, second generation 2018 Nissan LEAF EV.
