2016 Nissan Rogue vs 2015 Nissan Rogue Select

Up until this point, not many SUV-shoppers were not even aware of the Nissan Rogue Select’s existence or assumed that it was just another trim level. It is in fact a separate vehicle from the Nissan Rogue. This is where things get a little fuzzy, but the one glaring difference between the 2016 Nissan Rogue vs 2015 Nissan Rogue Select that most immediately recognize is the difference in faces. The two grilles are very different as are a number of other things which we plan to explain and help sort out.   

The biggest difference to keep in mind is that the Rogue Select is able to keep its price down because it is a continuation of the previous year’s model. This is why the two look so different; the Nissan Rogue underwent a redesign that included the adaptation of the new signature V-motion grille and boomerang headlights. Beneath the hood though, the same engine will be found for both SUVs. The standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine is rated at 170 horsepower and is paired with a CVT transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard on all trim levels for the 2016 Rogue and 2015 Rogue Select but all-wheel drive is available.

Key Differences Between the 2016 Nissan Rogue and 2015 Rogue Select

Each year, when a new model is rolled out, typically there is new technology available for it; whether it may be for safety or entertainment purposes, but with it, comes a higher price tag. This is the key purpose that the Nissan Rogue Select serves. Drivers who aren’t swept up in all of the bells and whistles of a new car and have no use for all of cutting-edge features but merely are looking for a practical, comfortable, new vehicle to drive, will appreciate the Rogue Select.

Take your smartphone for example. A brand new upgrade just came out, and although those few new features are dazzling, you’re still perfectly satisfied with your current phone. It's not like you’re downgrading to a stone age flip phone. On the other hand though, if you are a driver who loves staying on top of cutting edge technology and have been waiting to buy a new Nissan with the advanced drive-assist display, around-view camera, Nissan Intelligent Key with push button ignition, and all of the NissanConnect navigation and mobile apps available on the dash touch screen, then you’ll want to focus on the 2016 Nissan Rogue.

Both Rogue models still provide a third row of seating for passengers and up to 70.0 cu.ft. of total cargo space. The interior of the new 2016 Nissan Rogue is going to feel more upscale and include the available technology mentioned above. The latest Nissan Rogue model and Rogue Select are here at Glendale Nissan, and we invite drivers debating between the two to come and see them both in person.
