Nissan reports that in December 2016, the Rogue drove to the top of the Nissan class by outselling the Nissan Altima to be the brand’s new number-one selling vehicle and that, this year, the Rogue Sport will offer consumers a sportier version of the Nissan Rogue.

“Since the announcement of our relationship with Lucasfilm and the Star Wars brand last August, we’ve successfully improved awareness for the Nissan Rogue, and the Nissan brand, too,” added Tucker. “Rogue sales have made the jump to hyperspace, up nearly 50 percent in 2017 from this time last year, and we’re not planning on letting up anytime soon.”
