All-New Nissan X-Trail SUV is Also the 2014 Rogue for North America
SEPTEMBER 10, 2013
The 2013 edition of the Frankfurt Motor Show welcomed the international premiere of the new generation Nissan X-Trail, which as we rightly suspected, is a global model and will also act as a replacement to the Nissan Rogue in North America, with differences between the two possibly (but not surely) concerning the powertrain options.
Built on the new jointly-developed Nissan and Renault Common Module Family (CMF) platform architecture, and projected to be available in 190 countries around the globe, the new X-Trail adopts a more crossover look and feel in its styling, which was previewed by last year's Nissan HiCross Concept.
Strangely enough, Nissan is keeping a great number of details under cover in its initial press release, including the SUV's dimensions and powertrain lineup. What Nissan did say about the X-Trail's engine lineup is that it will downsize.
