Best-in-class gas-engine available fuel economy
MISSISSAUGA, ONT. – Nissan introduced an all-new Rogue for the 2021 model year, delivering high quality and customer satisfaction through its strong combination of design, safety and technology. Now for 2022, Nissan is making its best-selling model more powerful, more fuel-efficient and more fun to drive with an available all-new, 1.5-liter variable compression (VC) Turbo engine.
Mated with a responsive new transmission, the 2022 Rogue equipped with the 1.5L VC Turbo engine, delivers improved power, best-in-class gas-engine fuel economy1, and more thrilling driving experience.
The new powertrain delivers 201 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque – an increase of 11 percent and 24 percent respectively versus the 2021 Rogue. Even with the increased power, the 2022 Rogue’s available estimated fuel economy is 7.6 L/100km combined (AWD).
“As the Nissan NEXT transformation continues, the 2022 Nissan Rogue’s all-new powertrain is a proof point of the company’s commitment to investing in its lineup and improving the company’s product, brand and sales power in North America,” said Steve Milette, President, Nissan Canada Inc. “Rogue’s new 1.5-liter VC-Turbo adds real-world value while providing more thrill behind the wheel.”
“The VC-Turbo is the most advanced engine Nissan has ever produced,” said Jill Young, Senior Manager, Chief Marketing Management, Nissan Canada Inc. “With the new Rogue engine, Nissan Canada will continue to deliver top quality powertrains that provide the thrilling driving experience Nissan customers expect from our vehicles.”
Nissan’s all-new 1.5-liter VC-Turbo
Nissan Motor Company pioneered the variable compression engine with the introduction of the 2.0-liter VC-Turbo 4-cylinder in the 2019 INFINITI QX50the 2019 Nissan Altima in the US. More than 20 years in development, the VC-Turbo system continuously adjusts its compression ratio to optimize power and efficiency through use of a breakthrough advanced multi-link system.
The advanced VC-Turbo’s high/low compression ratio technology creates two different driving profiles – dynamic performance and eco/efficient, each seamlessly available on driver demand. The new powertrain provides strong, confident acceleration from a start, when passing other vehicles or when entering a highway.
VC-Turbo technologies have evolved for the 2022 Rogue’s 1.5-liter VC-Turbo 3-cylinder, with a focus on improving performance in three areas: acceleration, fuel economy and emissions. A new high-pressure fuel injection system helps enhance acceleration, as does the stainless mirror-bore cylinder-wall coating. New textured valve lifters reduce friction and improve overall engine efficiency while a vacuum low-pressure die-cast cylinder head improves engine cooling. In addition, the 2022 Rogue features a new engine mounting system that uses two lower torque rods to enhance engine vibration isolation with high torque support.
New generation Xtronic transmission
With a 17 percent wider gear ratio coverage and 32 percent lower friction (than the previous transmission), the new available Xtronic transmission also drives better acceleration feel and enhanced fuel economy in the 2022 Rogue.
New transmission technologies include a twin oil pump system and newly developed control valve system. The twin oil pump system combines a small mechanical pump (with small oil flow) for slow shifting between low and high ratios, while the second electric oil pump (with larger oil flow) provides quicker shifting for hard driving situations.
