2018 Nissan Rogue Adds Semi-Autonomous Driving Tech
The 2018 Nissan Rogue is the first U.S. vehicle to offer advanced ProPilot Assist technology.
Priced from $25,655, the 2018 Nissan Rogue goes on sale October 24 at Nissan dealerships nationwide in the U.S. As Nissan’s best-selling model throughout the 2017 model year, the 2018 version gets a number of enhancements including the addition of available ProPilot Assist technology, which provides assisted steering, braking, and accelerating during single-lane highway driving.
Nissan says the technology is the foundation for the fully autonomous vehicles of the future and helps drivers stay centered in the lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic, maintain a set vehicle speed, and maintain a set distance to the vehicle ahead. ProPilot Assist is available on the 2018 Nissan Rogue SL as part of the Platinum package. The 2018 Nissan Rogue SL starts from $32,035.
Other enhancements to the 2018 Nissan Rogue include NissanConnect with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support and one additional USB port, standard motion-activated liftgate added to the SV trim ($26,875), while the SL grade adds standard Intelligent Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection.
