The Rogue compact utility vehicle is Nissan’s second best-selling model in the U.S., so when it was announced that the Japanese automaker was redesigning it for 2014, anticipation was through the roof.  Customers got their first glimpse of the redesigned 2014 Nissan Rogue at the Frankfurt International Motor Show, and it appears to be a hit.

The sleeker exterior styling stole the show and rightfully so, but 2014 will also mark the first Rogue to be offered with an optional third row.  The redesigned 2014 Nissan Rogue will be the first to offer seating for up to seven passengers.

Nissan has high aspirations for the Rogue, as it will be part of the new jointly developed Nissan/Renault Common Module Family (CMF) platform architecture, which means the Rogue will be sold in 190 countries around the world.

“There is growing demand for compact SUVs around the world due to their user-friendly combination of right-sized exteriors, flexible interior utility and low environmental impact,” said Fred Diaz, divisional vice president of Sales and Marketing at Nissan North America, in a press release.

“With this exciting, innovative, all-new design, Nissan is aggressively targeting increased sales and share in every market. By sharing development costs, while adapting powertrains, designs and equipment offerings for each specific region, Nissan has been able to add features and technologies while keeping prices affordable. No matter the specific market nameplate, it’s a guaranteed winner.”

Will the redesigned 2014 Nissan Rogue be able to live up to the lofty expectation set by its predecessor?  Tell us what you think in the comments below.
