2017 Nissan Rogue Sport First Drive: Smaller, but not lesser SUV

2017 Nissan Rogue Sport First Drive: Smaller, but not lesser SUV

What's in a name? If that name happens to be 'Rogue,' well, you're looking at the substantial brand equity of the best-selling SUV in America, and a vehicle that's managed to move more units than even the mighty Ford F-150 pickup through the first quarter of 2017. It makes perfect sense, then, for Nissan to swap out the 'Qashqai' name that's used to identify its latest compact crossover everywhere else in the world and go all-in on the 'Rogue Sport' badge for the American market.

Epic Nissan Rogue Trail Warrior swaps wheels for tank tracks and camo

Epic Nissan Rogue Trail Warrior swaps wheels for tank tracks and camo

Nissan just can't resist putting tank tracks on its normal SUVs, and the latest to get the extreme off-road treatment is the 2017 Rogue Trail Warrior. Based, as you've probably guessed, on the regular Rogue crossover, the one-off car has been made especially for the 2017 New York International Auto Show, which kicks off later this week. Unfortunately, that means you can't just turn up at your local Nissan dealer and buy one yourself, at least not yet.

Hey Cortana, tell me about Nissan’s CES 2017 keynote

Cars are getting smarter, either with the help of tether or paired smartphone or by themselves. Some car makers have flocked to Apple's CarPlay while others have jumped on Google's Android Auto. The one major platform maker that seems to be missing out, however, is Microsoft. If Nissan's teaser is any indication, however, that might be changing on Thursday. To remind people about its CES 2017 keynote, Nissan has sought the marketing help of Cortana, and Microsoft, of course, hinting that there might be a big reveal coming up.

2017 Nissan GT-R: Supercar for the people

2017 Nissan GT-R: Supercar for the people

The 2017 Nissan GT-R is not a supercar that asks you to put down a deposit and wait your turn. It doesn't require that you be a previous Nissan owner to buy one, or that you be vetted by a team of brand gatekeepers to determine whether you're worth of GT-R stewardship. You don't have to accept exotic hybrid technologies to tap into what the GT-R has to offer, nor does it come with an elaborate maintenance schedule and a pair of white gloves that you must wear each and every time you slip behind the wheel. Instead, it simply kicks enormous amounts of ass, and invites you to come along for the ride.
