The Nissan Rogue garners much less controversy than its more polarizing Juke stablemate. To keep the Rogue fresh, Nissan has announced that the 2012 model will receive a few minor trim changes and a slight price increase of $70. MSRP for a base front-wheel-drive Rogue now starts at $22,340, including destination.
The biggest news for the 2012 Rogue is the loss of the Krom trim package, and the addition of the Special Edition Package, which is a sort of recession special. The Special Edition Package includes 16-inch wheels, a 4.3-inch color display with USB connectivity, XM Satellite Radio, and a rearview camera, all for $1200. Nissan says customers will save $1000 with this package over the cost of those options if purchased individually. Some other minor additions to the 2012 Rogue include a sport mode, and Nissan’s Around View camera tacked onto the $3900 SL package.
