2020 Nissan Rogue

All-wheel drive is one of those features that Minot drivers demand due to its increased traction and handling over rough roads and low-traction weather-induced conditions. So it’s natural you’d be wondering if the Rogue provides an AWD version. Luckily for you, the answer is a resounding “yes”! The new Nissan Rogue offers all-wheel drive at every trim level! More specifically, it offers Nissan Intelligent AWD that monitors road conditions with sensors and adjusts traction as needed. Find out more about the Nissan Rogue AWD to keep you safer on Bismarck roads.

How Nissan Intelligent AWD Works

The Nissan Rogue Intelligent AWD system is a drivetrain that is proactive rather than reactive. While traditional AWD systems send power to all four wheels, the Nissan Intelligent AWD system in the new Rogue distributes power as needed to maximize traction. During times extra power isn’t needed, it isn’t used, saving fuel and increasing efficiency. The Rogue starts off in AWD to increase grip until it gets up to the required speed. Next, the Rogue conserves power by redirecting torque to the front wheels. If the Rogue encounters slippery conditions on Williston roads, then the Intelligent AWD system kicks in to redistribute power to any wheels that need better control.

Nissan Rogue AWD Configurations

The Nissan Rogue offers Intelligent AWD throughout the lineup with models including:

Nissan Rogue AWD Lock Button

Why choose the Nissan Rogue over other AWD SUVs? The Nissan Rogue AWD Lock is one reason. The Nissan Rogue AWD Lock is essentially a low-speed regulator button that has the capability of locking all four wheels for increased traction in snowy conditions or during off-roading. How does it work? By splitting power between the front and rear wheels for increased control, regardless of the conditions.

AWD Error on Nissan Rogue

We don’t want you to be surprised if the AWD error light comes on in your Nissan Rogue. If it does, there are multiple reasons why, all of which warrant a trip to your nearest Nissan service center for inspection. There’s a good chance your AWD error light might be coming on because of a change in oil temperature. In this instance, you can pull over to let your Rogue engine rest until the light turns off — even if the light does turn off, though, it’s still a good idea to have your vehicle checked out.
