The redesigned Nissan Rogue interior will be introduced at the New York Auto Show on Thursday, but the company is not giving up on the interior for the next-generation model, according to a company official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
The official said Nissan is currently reviewing interior materials, materials and construction techniques in the Rogue, and is also considering other options.
The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter, said Nissan will likely announce the next car model in 2020 or 2021.
While Nissan is not going to completely abandon the Rogue’s interior, the official said the company will focus on the exterior of the car to determine how best to present a more modern design, according the official.
Nissan will focus primarily on making the Rogue more aerodynamic and more streamlined.
That includes new wheels, LED taillights and a more compact package.
The company is also developing a new version of the Rogue SUV with an all-new exterior that will have fewer spoilers, lower center of gravity and less body roll.
Nippon Ichi and its suppliers are also working on developing a version of its compact compact sedan, which will have smaller interior dimensions and more aerodynamics.
The car will likely debut in 2019 or 2020.
Nashville, Detroit and other automakers are also testing their own new models with more modern designs and body shapes, including the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford Fusion and Jeep Renegade.
The Nissan Rogue will be the first Nissan car in the world to be designed by a Japanese automaker.
It will also be the company’s first new car since the introduction of the Nissan Xterra in 2014.
The Xterram was a radical redesign of the popular midsize sedan that also introduced the first electric vehicle, the Leaf, in 2017.
The new Nissan Rogue is the company first all-electric vehicle.
