U.S. production for all-new 2021 Nissan Rogue starts in Tennessee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Production of the all-new 2021 Nissan Rogue is officially underway at the award-winning Nissan Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant in Tennessee.

“Our U.S. manufacturing team rallied together like never before to overcome unprecedented challenges that could have impacted this moment,” says Steve Marsh, senior vice president, Manufacturing, Supply Chain Management and Purchasing, Nissan North America. “We are ready to ramp up and put Rogue on the road for customers.”

Nissan not only packed the 2021 Rogue with technology, but the company’s manufacturing and engineering teams use the latest technologies to bring it to life. Nissan is using enhanced applications of advanced manufacturing technology such as virtual reality and collaborative robots to build the vehicle.

  • Cobots: Nissan has deployed more collaborative car manufacturing robots with the new Rogue than it has with any other previous model launch. These robots effectively support process factory automation, resulting in improved safety performance and less strain on workers. The technology is being used to assist with a number of jobs to ensure repetitive tasks are done the same way every time. This helps free up workers to perform more skilled tasks and produce higher-quality vehicles.
  • Virtual reality: Working alongside frontline technicians, Nissan manufacturing engineers used virtual reality to troubleshoot issues before moving to the production floor. The technology not only helped to identify manufacturability concerns before the first steel was cut for production tools, but also shaped the design of process equipment through early, virtual feedback from production technicians, helping to prevent production delays.

“Not only have we improved the way we build the new Rogue, the team is using this new technology to build all the vehicles in our U.S. plants with better efficiency and quality for customers,” said David Johnson, vice president, Production Engineering and New Model Quality, Nissan North America. “It’s a win-win for Nissan and our customers.”

Top-selling model

Building on 13 years of success in the U.S., the 2021 Rogue will lead Nissan’s turnaround as the company’s top-selling U.S. model, with nearly 3 million sold to date. 2021 Rogue has all the technology, capability and functionality to make life easier for today’s families, including:

  • Safety Shield 360: Nissan Safety Shield 360® comes standard across the entire Rogue lineup and includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist and Rear Automatic Braking.
  • ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link: Rogue was one of the first vehicles to offer Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist, a hands-on, driver-assist technology that reduces the hassle of stop-and-go highway driving and makes long drives on the open highway easier. For 2021, the new ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link has been enhanced using next-generation radar and camera technology to provide smoother braking, better steering assist feel and improved detection performance when other vehicles cut into the lane.

Drivers will also enjoy improved driving dynamics, intelligent all-wheel drive, wireless charging and wireless Apple CarPlay®.

The new Rogue is the first of six new Nissan models for the U.S. that will be offered by the end of 2021, giving Nissan one of the freshest lineups among key competitors. It follows all-new versions of the Nissan Versa and Sentra.

The all-new Nissan Rogue arrives at dealers throughout the U.S. this fall. Customers can build their own 2021 Rogue online at www.NissanUSA.com.

Innovative manufacturing

Rogue has been in production at Smyrna Vehicle Assembly plant since 2013. The plant employs 7,000 people who have built more than 14 million vehicles since opening in 1983, with Rogue accounting for nearly 1.1 million of those vehicles.

The assembly line that produces Rogue ranked in the top five in quality performance among North American manufacturing facilities in the 2020 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study (IQS).

Nissan Smyrna currently produces six models: Rogue, Altima, LEAF, Maxima, Pathfinder and INFINITI QX60.

Nissan Maxima: 40 years a flagship

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A new Maxima 40th Anniversary Edition joins the 2021 Nissan Maxima lineup when it goes on sale this fall. The limited production package builds on the fully equipped Maxima Platinum grade and includes:

  • Unique two-tone Ruby Slate Gray Pearl exterior color with black roof
  • Exclusive 19-inch gloss black aluminum-alloy wheels
  • Black exterior finishers and trim badges, including 40th Anniversary badge
  • Black exhaust finishers
  • Red semi-aniline leather-appointed seating with 40th Anniversary embossing
  • Red contrast interior stitching
  • Satin Dark Chrome interior faceted finishers
  • White speedometer and tachometer faces reminiscent of past Maxima models
  • Heated rear seats

Maxima is the longest continuous running Nissan nameplate in the U.S., linking back to 1981, the year Maxima was first sold here.

As the flagship of Nissan’s vibrant sedan lineup, which includes the trio of recently redesigned Altima, Sentra and Versa models, Maxima continues to garner prestigious industry awards. In June, Maxima was named the top vehicle in the Large Car segment of J.D. Power Initial Quality Study for the third consecutive year. In July, Maxima led J.D. Power’s APEAL Study Large Car category, again for the third year in a row and 30 points ahead of the segment average. It has also achieved a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for five straight years1.

In addition to the 40th Anniversary Edition, the 2021 Maxima will be offered in SV, SR and Platinum grade levels – each equipped with a 300-horsepower 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine and Xtronic transmission.

The Original “4-Door Sports Car”
Today, Maxima is known for its premium level of luxury with performance and sportiness. For generations, before the arrival of diamond quilted Ascot leather-appointed seats, Satin Birdseye Maple wood finishers and 11-speaker Bose® Premium Audio system, it was simply known as the “4-Door Sports Car.”

Now in its eighth-generation, Maxima’s storied history as an authentic sports sedan goes back even farther to the Datsun Bluebird 810 of the late 1970s. The 1981 Datsun 810 – often described as a larger interpretation of the legendary Datsun 510 – was the first to carry the Maxima nameplate.

Dropping the 810 name, the true first generation Maxima featured the engine of the 240Z and a 5-speed manual transmission at a time when industry standard was a 4-speed box or less. Next came the second-generation 1985 – 1988 Maxima, which was the first to offer a V6 engine and front-wheel drive. It was the last to be available with a station wagon body.

The third-generation Maxima emerged in 1989 as the true 4DSC. Considered the best affordable sedan in the world by many, it was powered by a 160-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 and went head-to-head against European sports sedans in road test comparisons by leading automotive publications.

Not willing to rest on its laurels, the Nissan engineering team came back in 1995 with a larger body design and featuring a new engine, new rear suspension and 30 extra horsepower (190-hp). It was chosen as Motor Trend’s Import Car of the Year and was included on Car and Driver’s 10 Best list.

Three more generations followed quickly. The fifth-generation Maxima, introduced in 2000, received the legendary VQ35 V6 and a boost to 255-horsepower (from model year 2002). In 2004, the sixth-generation Maxima upped the luxury factor substantially. The seventh-generation added new aggressive styling to go along with the now-290-horsepower 3.5-liter V6.

In 2016, the current-generation Maxima debuted sporting the V-Motion front end and floating roof design. A minor facelift followed in 2019 with enhancements to its safety, security and connectivity technology.

Over four decades, Maxima has remained faithful to its heritage as a true performance sedan and brand flagship – as well as to its large owner base, which is among the most loyal among all Nissan models. With the addition of the special 40th Anniversary Edition, Maxima adds to its long history once again.

More information on the full 2021 Maxima lineup, including pricing and specifications, will be announced closer to its fall 2020 on-sale date.

Nissan Frontier homecoming: Brian Murphy receives new truck, Million-Mile Frontier returns ‘home’

CHICAGO – After more than a million miles of hard work, Brian Murphy’s 2007 Nissan Frontier is headed home.

Today, Murphy swapped his “Million-Mile” Frontier for a new 2020 Frontier at M’Lady Nissan in Crystal Lake, the same dealership where he bought his 2007 Frontier more than 13 years ago. The Million Mile Frontier will retire where it was assembled, the Nissan Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant in Smyrna, Tennessee.

Nissan first celebrated Murphy and his million miler during the reveal of the 2020 Frontier at the Chicago Auto Show in February. During a short ceremony on Tuesday, Nissan presented Murphy with a new 2020 Frontier, which is now available at select Nissan dealers nationwide with a starting MSRP1 of $26,790.

“Brian Murphy is the quintessential Frontier owner, so it’s fitting that he will be driving one of the first 2020 Frontier pickups in America,” said Craig Keeys, regional vice president, Nissan Midwest Region, Nissan North America. “Thank you, Brian, for illustrating the durability and reliability of the Frontier for more than 13 years and one million miles.”

The 2020 Nissan Frontier features an all-new, powerful 3.8-liter direct injection V6 engine and all-new 9-speed automatic transmission – featuring best-in-class horsepower2 and improved fuel economy3. That will be a significant upgrade for all Frontier owners, and especially for Murphy, whose 2007 Frontier still has its original 4-cylinder engine and 5-speed manual transmission.

According to Murphy – an independent delivery driver who regularly spends 13 hours a day on the road – the original clutch on his Frontier King Cab lasted 801,000 miles, the timing chain was replaced as preventative at 700,000 miles, and the radiator and alternator lasted about 450,000 miles each. Even the driver’s seat lasted a half-million miles before being replaced.

And though it still “runs great,” said Murphy, he’s ready for his new 2020 Frontier SV King Cab 4×4.

“I’ll miss this truck, no doubt, but I’m glad it’s going back ‘home’ to Smyrna,” said Murphy. “At the same time, I’m ready for my next chapter, and I can’t wait to experience my new Frontier and its all-new powertrain. I know that this 2020 Frontier will bring the same durability that I’ve relied on for over 13 years.”

Murphy, 62, says he’d like to reduce his work hours over the next few years, making a “Million-Mile Frontier 2” unlikely – but not completely out of the picture.

“I’d never say never – especially in a Frontier.”

While Murphy’s 2007 Frontier came off the assembly line in Smyrna, the 2020 Frontier is now assembled at the Nissan Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant in Canton, Mississippi. The Canton plant will also be the home of the forthcoming, all-new Frontier.

Nissan e.dams scores first win of the season in Berlin Formula E season finale

BERLIN, Germany – Nissan e.dams driver Oliver Rowland drove a commanding race from pole position on the grid to take his first Formula E win in the penultimate round of the six-round ABB FIA Formula E Championship season finale in Berlin. Rowland led every lap of the race and qualified top of his group before going on to take the top spot in the Super Pole qualifying session. He also had the fastest lap of the race.

Teammate Sebastien Buemi battled his way up to P10 and into the points on a new Berlin Tempelhof Airport circuit layout, after not setting a time in qualifying and starting the race in P22.

“An incredible race for the team today and an impressive victory for Oli,” said Tommaso Volpe, Nissan global motorsports director. “We had great pace in qualifying and the race, without sacrificing energy efficiency, which is the perfect scenario in Formula E. The team is fired up for the final race tomorrow and will race hard to secure P2 in the team championship.”

This solid haul of team points means that Nissan e.dams maintains second in the team championship with one race left of season six. With his win, pole and fastest lap, and 29 points scored, Rowland advances to second in the driver championship, with Buemi in eighth.  

Nissan participates in Formula E to bring the excitement of its powerful EV performance to racing fans worldwide, and to demonstrate the power and performance of its zero-emission EV technology.

“Fantastic lights to flag victory for Oli,” said Olivier Driot, Nissan e.dams team principal. “The team performed brilliantly to prepare the race cars for both drivers, and Seb showed his champion’s spirit and skill by racing from P22 to P10. The team has worked very hard in Berlin for this season finale and that work is paying off. We look forward to the last race.”

Staged behind closed doors at Berlin’s Tempelhof Airport circuit, the last pair of three double-header races takes place on Aug. 12 and 13, on a different track layout to the prior two double-headers.

Nissan’s new brand logo features across the Nissan e.dams team garage, race cars and driver suits throughout the Berlin finale. The new logo was unveiled at the July 15 world premiere of the all-new Nissan Ariya, a 100% electric crossover SUV.

DRIVER QUOTES

Oliver Rowland

“I can’t thank the team enough. This is the biggest win of my career so far, especially when you look at the quality of the other drivers in the field. To win a race against all these top drivers is amazing, and hopefully we can build on this strong end of season performance and enter next season with good momentum.

It can be quite hard in racing when you lose a little confidence, it can really hit you. There have been a few times this season when I was just missing two or three tenths because I’m not quite confident enough, but it is a case of just building that confidence up. I got into Super Pole and started in P3 in the last race and that was a good step. Now it seems that everything is coming together; the team are working really well and our car is fantastic.”

Sebastien Buemi

“I think today was my best race of the season so far. I had the pace and I feel that we beat the other top drivers and teams fair and square today, so that shows that we made a massive improvement throughout the week here in Berlin. I felt very competitive all day, a little disappointed of course with what happened in qualifying, but really happy for the team and for Oli. We deserved it today; we worked really hard in the off season and now we are looking very good for P2 in the team championship. I look forward to the last race tomorrow and hope I can do a good job.”

Nissan e.dams powers to second place in Formula E teams championship

BERLIN, Germany – Nissan e.dams powered to second place in the ABB FIA Formula E teams championship with a strong, late season surge including a victory and five podiums.

In one of the most intense and competitive motorsport season finales, the Nissan e.dams team, with drivers Sebastien Buemi and Oliver Rowland, delivered pace, performance and energy efficiency when it mattered most. The team scored 110 points in six races over nine days to clinch second in the team championship, taking the team’s total points to 167 points for season six.

Nissan e.dams successfully completed season six with a victory, five podiums and two pole positions, plus six straight rounds in Super Pole for Sebastien Buemi.

Rowland dominated round ten yesterday, with his maiden Formula E win in a commanding display, taking the top spot in his qualifying group, pole position, and fastest lap before claiming the lights to flag victory.

In the last race of the season, round 11, the team once again showed their true pace with Buemi’s podium neatly wrapping up a strong overall season six performance.

“On behalf of the dedicated women and men at Nissan, we are so proud of our Formula E team and its second place finish,” said Tommaso Volpe, Nissan global motorsports director. “Despite challenging circumstances, the team has shown extraordinary resilience and ingenuity at every race. Our pursuit of performance and success in Formula E reflects our pioneering spirit and long-time leadership in EVs. The expertise we gain on track informs and accelerates the development of our road cars. The racing this year has been incredibly exciting, and it is this excitement in EV competition and driving, along with far-reaching technical advances, that shapes our all-electric road cars, like the all-new Nissan Ariya, a 100% electric crossover SUV.”

Nissan participates in Formula E to bring the excitement of its powerful EV performance to racing fans worldwide, and to demonstrate the power and performance of its zero-emission EV technology.

“The team proved beyond doubt their commitment, talent and determination this season,” said Gregory and Oliver Driot, Nissan e.dams co-team principals. “We showed some promise quite early in the season including a podium in Mexico City, but when the pressure was really on in these last six rounds, as we pursued second place in the teams championship, the team came together and gave the drivers a car that could win races. Oli and Seb then scored those critical points and we have our trophy. Achieving second in the teams championship is a great achievement for the team.” 

More season highlights

Nissan’s second season in Formula E began with two top five finishes in the two opening rounds. The teams’ first podium came in round four in Mexico City where Buemi finished in third, but it was a late season surge in the six finale races in Berlin where the team fine-tuned a strong racing package into a car that could lead the rest of the field, with speed, grip, and, most importantly, energy efficiency.

Rowland’s win in round 10 and solid haul of points throughout the Berlin finale was enough for fifth in the drivers championship. Buemi drove his “best race of season six” charging his way through the field and into a point’s place of P10, after starting from P22.

In round 11, the final race of the season, Buemi qualified top in his group and P2 in Super Pole. After a tight battle with the leading group of three cars, Buemi crossed the line in P3, securing fourth in the drivers championship.

Race activations and activities

In the first five rounds of the season, preceding the global Covid-19 lockdown, Nissan engaged with thousands of passionate fans with prominent, interactive road car product displays in the track-side E-Villages. With the all-electric Nissan LEAF taking center stage, surrounded by the thrilling atmosphere of Formula E races, Nissan, with its Intelligent Mobility vision, showcased to the world that in racing, and on the road, EVs are exciting to drive.

When the global coronavirus pandemic put racing on pause, Nissan e.dams competed in the Formula E Race at Home Challenge. The online sim racing series featured all the Formula E teams, plus some of the fastest professional sim racers in the world, and took place over eight weekends on various digital replicas of iconic Formula E circuits. A late performance surge in this competition saw Nissan take second place in the esports teams championship, and Oliver Rowland third in the drivers championship.

During the Berlin season six finale rounds, Nissan promoted their all-new Nissan Ariya, a 100% electric crossover SUV, to the global Formula E audience, again highlighting through motorsports, just how exciting EVs are.

Season seven

For season seven, the teams will continue to use the Gen2 Formula E cars – the second evolution of the all-electric racers – with the 2020/21 season announced and set to begin in Santiago, Chile on January 16.

DRIVER QUOTES

Sebastien Buemi

“I’m very happy for the team today with second place in the teams championship, this is a great achievement. I was hoping to get to third in the drivers championship, but fourth will have to do. In the race today we changed the car set up slightly and that didn’t quite work out for us. Anyway we worked hard, as we always do, and the results came. Thank you to the team for all their hard work this season, and to the fans for their passionate support.”

Oliver Rowland

“Yesterday was perfect with my first Formula E win on top of P1 in Super Pole and the fastest racing lap. Overall, I am happy with my season, my consistency has improved, and the results and points have followed. Fifth in the drivers championship is ok, but most importantly we are second in the teams championship. I’m really happy for the team. Everyone has worked so hard to produce a fast race car for Seb and myself. I think we have finished the season well here in Berlin, and congratulations to Seb on his podium today.”

Nissan donations to provide more than 1 million meals to residents in need

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan North America is extending its fight to curb hunger by doubling its annual contributions to local food banks in response to rising rates of food insecurity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nissan’s donations will help purchase more than 1 million meals for residents in need across Middle Tennessee and Mississippi.

According to a report from Feeding America, nearly 54 million people (1 in 6 people) may face food insecurity in 2020, including 18 million children. This means 1 in 4 children in the U.S. may be unsure of where their next meal will come from.

“Our food bank partners have been significantly impacted by COVID-19 in a number of ways, from an increase in the number of people they serve to a decrease in food donations to the reduced number of volunteers allowed in warehouses to assist with food packing for distribution,” says Parul Bajaj, senior manager, Philanthropy. “Increasing Nissan’s annual donations will help our community partners better meet this expanded level of need as we all continue to navigate these unprecedented times.”

Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee

“Nissan has been a longstanding supporter of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee for nearly 30 years,” said Nancy Keil, president and CEO of Second Harvest. “A lot of industries are struggling right now, so we were truly blown away by Nissan’s generosity in doubling their annual gift to $200,000. As we continue to face so much uncertainty, this donation will ensure 800,000 meals are provided to our neighbors in need.”

Nissan’s contributions to Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee total nearly $1.7 million and is the food bank’s first Mission Partner, which denotes an organization that donates more than $100,000 annually. Nissan employees also regularly volunteer at Second Harvest’s warehouses in Nashville and Smyrna to sort and prepare food for distribution. In addition to funds and volunteering, Nissan has donated five vehicles valued at more than $100,000 to provide much-needed logistics support.

Mississippi Food Network and Our Daily Bread

“There is a saying that every cloud has a silver lining, and if there is a silver lining to the COVID pandemic cloud that is overshadowing us, it is how graciously those who are able, like Nissan, have responded with their financial gifts to help support the increased demand for food this unprecedented health crisis is causing,” said Dr. Charles Beady, CEO of Mississippi Food Network. “Nissan has been an integral community partner with Mississippi Food Network for many years and we look forward to the continued partnership.”

Nissan’s Vehicle Assembly Plant in Canton, Mississippi, has a years-long partnership with both Mississippi Food Network and Our Daily Bread food banks. Contributions in Mississippi total more than $311,000. Mississippi Canton employees regularly volunteer at both organizations to help pack backpacks with healthy lunches and snacks for kids with food insecurities. At Our Daily Bread, which also operates as a soup kitchen in Madison County, employee volunteers serve lunch to residents in need, and Nissan was able to donate a van to the organization’s “Meals on Wheels” program. Nissan’s recent donations will provide more than 200,000 meals to the local community.

Nissan’s donations to Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee, Mississippi Food Network and Our Daily Bread are through its Nissan Neighbors charitable giving program, a community-focused initiative dedicated to improving communities through charitable contributions and in-kind donations to nonprofit organizations working in three focus areas: education, the environment and humanitarian aid.

Nissan gives LEAF drivers a UEFA Champions League Final to remember

LISBON, Portugal – Nissan is bringing electrified excitement to the UEFA Champions League Final by giving a lucky group of Nissan LEAF drivers a socially distanced game-day experience.

With fans unable to attend this year’s game in person, Nissan is setting up a drive-in theater for 50 LEAF owners, whose cars will be parked in team formation facing a giant screen, bringing them closer to the action while still maintaining social distancing. The watch party will take place at a secret location communicated only to the selected fans, each of whom can bring a guest.

Among those attending will be the owner of the 5,000th LEAF sold in Portugal and UEFA Champions League legend Nuno Gomes, who will join an exclusive meet-and-greet. With all necessary hygiene measures in place, the fans will also have access to the UEFA Champions League trophy for an exclusive photo opportunity, before it heads to the stadium.

Nissan is in its sixth season as the official automotive sponsor of the UEFA Champions League, the world’s largest annual sporting event.

“For six seasons now, we have been electrifying the UEFA Champions League Final,” said Gareth Dunsmore, vice president for marketing communications, connected car services and customer experience at Nissan Europe. “This year, we felt even more motivated to add to the excitement of the event.

“Nothing can recreate the excitement of being in the stadium, but we hope we can give our LEAF owners the next best thing.”

In addition to hosting the watch party, Nissan will parade the UEFA Champions League trophy through Lisbon to Estadio Da Luz aboard its electric performance car, the Nissan LEAF NISMO RC.

The final will also be the first major event to feature the new Nissan brand logo, unveiled just weeks ago alongside the all-new Nissan Ariya electric crossover. Both the new logo and the Ariya will take center stage during Nissan’s activities throughout the weekend in Lisbon, the European Green Capital for 2020.

Sit. Stay. Buckle up. Nissan shares tips for National Dog Day

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Join Nissan in celebration of National Dog Day on Aug. 26 with a pledge to help keep your pets safe when traveling by car.

In a recent study1, Nissan found that due to COVID-19, 71 percent of consumers are more comfortable traveling by car than airplane this summer. The pandemic has also seen a rise in pet adoptions. According to Rover.com, more than 60 percent of recent adoptions are by those with little or no previous pet experience. Among the list of firsts for new owners is how to travel safely in the car with their animal.

Out of convenience, many owners may allow their dogs to sit in the back seat or place them in the cargo area of their vehicle unrestrained. The American Automobile Association recently reported that 84 percent of Americans have driven with their pet in the car, yet only 16 percent use any form of restraint. In the same study, one in six admitted to driving with a dog on their lap.

“Often drivers may hit the road and just have their pet jump in the back seat for the ride. For a small investment and an extra minute or two, you can take steps to help ensure your pet is secured in the car,” said Brandon Sanders, product safety expert, Nissan North America. “An unrestrained pet can be a distraction and also poses a greater risk of injury to human occupants.”

Tips to properly secure a pet in your car:

Buckle up: One recommended way to secure a pet is to use a chest-style harness in the rear seating position. Run a seat belt through a loop on the back of the pet harness, or under the back or the harness itself. Always consult the pet harness information manual for instruction on proper vehicle use. This is an excellent solution to ensure that medium- to large-size dogs stay seated during a trip.

Use a tether: Another option is using a pet restraint tether, often referred to as a pet seat belt. This type of restraint offers an inexpensive and quick solution for securing pets. As the name implies, this restraint clips to the pet’s harness and is often affixed to your vehicle by either clipping into the seatbelt buckle or child-seat anchor to help keep your dog from moving around the vehicle.

Crates and carriers: Utilizing a secured pet carrier or kennel is another way to travel safely with pets. Smaller dogs can be housed in portable-style carrier that can be secured in the vehicle’s second row using seat belts or pillows to help limit movement. Smaller carriers can also be placed on the floor behind one of the front seats. Medium and large-sized pets should be placed in a sturdier kennel secured to the vehicle cargo area in SUVs or trucks. In either instance, the kennel should be fastened to the vehicle as securely as possible.

Set boundaries: Cargo area dividers can be used to help keep pets behind the last row of an SUV. These are a great way to keep large dogs out of the occupant space when traveling. It’s best to still secure the pet in the cargo area.

Remember that a vehicle can also offer built-in convenience for pet travel. The all-new 2021 Nissan Rogue has many features making it an excellent vehicle choice for pet owners.

  • Near 90-degree rear-door openings that make loading and unloading bulky cargo, like a kennel, easier than ever.
  • An updated Divide-N-Hide rear storage system offers options to securely store pet leashes, bowls, grooming tools, food and more.
  • Rear Door Alert (RDA)2 can provide drivers with an audio and visual reminder to check the back seat when exiting the vehicle. Interior car temperatures can rapidly increase to dangerous levels in certain climates.
  • Available Tri-Zone Climate Control gives pet owners the flexibility to set rear seat temperatures to a comfortable level for pets, separate from the front driver and passenger temperature control.
  • Available pull-up sunshades on both rear doors can be used to remove unwanted direct sunlight on pets secured in the rear seats.
  • Available Nissan Concierge gives drivers access to a human assistant to help with tasks like finding pet-friendly restaurants, dog parks and more.
  • A deep pocket behind the right wheel arch provides a smart storage solution for items like a gallon of water for rest stops.
