Rogue: Nissan's bestseller was redesigned last October, getting more cabin space in a similar footprint. It features a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine that delivers 181 hp, an increase of 11 hp, as well as updated suspension and steering to improve driving performance and reduce cabin noise.
The Rogue also introduced a more-capable driver-assist system that uses new radar and camera technology to deliver smoother braking, better steering assist and improved safety.
This year, the Rogue should receive a new, more powerful engine. The 1.5-liter three- cylinder turbo engine should increase horsepower by more than 10 percent and be more fuel efficient.
An off-road variant could be in the works for 2023, and a heavy freshen will arrive in 2024, when the Rogue could get the ePower serial-hybrid technology.
For the Rogue Sport variant, Nissan last year updated the interior and added standard safety and driver-assist technology. But going forward, the Sport — which came to market in 2017 from a different global platform with a different engine — could be dropped. The model is getting lost between the Rogue and Kicks, dealer sources said.
Murano: The midsize crossover got a face-lift for the 2019 model year, but the Murano — powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine — is aging. The scheduled 2023 redesign may be delayed by up to a year, according to supply chain sources. The next-gen Murano will ride on a revised version of Nissan's D platform and could be powered by a turbo four-cylinder engine.
Pathfinder: The midsize crossover was redesigned this summer. The Pathfinder carries over the previous generation's 3.5-liter V-6 engine but ditches Nissan's finicky continuously variable transmission in favor of a ZF-supplied nine-speed automatic transmission that delivers greater torque from a standing start and more-capable towing performance.
The redesigned crossover blends convenience and utility. It dials up interior space and includes conveniences such as easier access to the third row and wireless charging. Nissan has beefed up the light truck's ruggedness with more SUV styling to appeal to weekend warriors.
The 2022 model sports a Nissan V-motion grille that incorporates a hood design with three slots — a touch borrowed from the original Pathfinder.
An off-road variant could be in the works for 2023. A freshen could come in 2025.
Armada: The large SUV was freshened in January. The Armada, built on Nissan's global Patrol platform, gets a rugged exterior that underscores the SUV's off-road DNA, and a contemporary interior delivers modern conveniences and safety tech.
The exterior got more chiseled styling with a new grille, headlights, bumpers and fenders.
The rear received a redesigned hatch door and updated LED taillights, while inside, the dashboard is now anchored by a 12.3-inch horizontal display screen.
The 2021 Armada is powered by a 5.6-liter V-8 engine that was tweaked to deliver 400 hp. Expect a redesign in the second half of 2024.
Ariya: The new Rogue-sized Ariya electric crossover will arrive in the first half of 2022, later than planned, built on new architecture and offering up to 300 miles of driving range. The exterior is highlighted by prominent front fenders, rear fender flares, super-slim LED headlights and a steeply raked C-pillar.
The crossover ditches the conventional grille for what Nissan describes as a "shield," which, in driving mode, is illuminated to reveal Nissan's V-motion design signature.
The crossover also will debut new technologies, including a twin electric motor, an awd system and the next generation of Nissan's hands-off automated driving system.
