Is The Nissan Rogue Good In Snow?

Is The Nissan Rogue Good In Snow?

Nissan is developing a tradition for snow-ready vehicles. Recently, the Rogue has been adapted to a snow rescue vehicle by replacing its wheels with snow tracks. It’s not even the first time Nissan has done so: the Altima-te AWD and the Warrior were also adapted similarly. 

 

Don’t worry, though. You don’t need to roll around with tank-like wheels to be safe in your Nissan Rogue. Learn all about its snow-related features, ensuring smooth driving even under the most daring conditions. 

 

Performance and Driveability

The 2024 Nissan Rogue runs on a 1.5-litre Turbocharged engine with 225 lb-ft of torque capacity and 201 horsepower. It has a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a manual mode for greater control over gear shifting. 

 

The Rogue AWD comes from the factory with all-terrain capabilities, with a system that transfers power between the front and rear wheels according to the terrain, providing superior traction and more confident driveability.

 

This lineup also has an available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system monitoring the vehicle’s grip in real-time. It includes five Drive Modes, two especially handy for snowy conditions: Snow and Off-Road. Both modes can adapt performance and handling to pretty much any driving condition. This system also shifts back front-wheel drive automatically when the vehicle reaches normal driving conditions again, improving its efficiency.

 

Let It Snow

 

Nissan uses top-notch technologies to shield you against poor weather. Here are the main ones.

 

High-Beam Assist

 

Excessive light is dangerous on snowy roads, as reflexes can blind other drivers. This feature adjusts lights to road conditions and dims automatically whenever other vehicles approach.

 

Intelligent Forward Collision Warning

 

This system relies on radar sensors placed in front of the vehicle to measure the distance between you and surrounding cars. It can be very difficult and dangerous to brake on snowy and slippery roads, but this system warns you about any incoming risk.  

 

Dynamic Control

 

Nissan’s Vehicle Dynamic Control uses an array of sensors to keep balance and grip based on your driving input. This feature can automatically control the engine or brakes, providing a quicker reaction as road conditions change. 

 

Anti-Lock Brakes

 

When braking force surpasses the tyres’ capabilities, wheels can suddenly lock up and destabilize your driveability. This system manages valves, controllers, the pump, and speed sensors. It can detect when a wheel is about to lock up and release pressure accordingly.

 

Lane Departure Warning

 

This feature warns you whenever your vehicle leaves a lane with turn signals off. It uses cameras placed next to the rearview camera to keep track of lane markings. The Lane Departure Warning works when the vehicle is up to 60km/h in clear road conditions.

 

Hill Start Assist

 

This system counts on front and rear sensors to detect your vehicle’s inclination. It also holds the brake as you take your foot off the gas.
