Nissan says its revamped Rogue SUV will be cheaper but more fuel efficient than its rivals when it goes on sale in November.
Nissan unveiled the 2014 Rogue Tuesday at its North American technical center near Detroit.
Nissan says the new Rogue will get an estimated 33 miles per gallon on the highway, a 20 percent increase over the outgoing model. That beats its rivals in the highly competitive small SUV segment, including the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape.
The Rogue still has its old 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine, but it's paired with a new transmission for better fuel economy.
For the first time, the Rogue will offer three rows of seating and a cargo area with adjustable shelving.
It starts at $22,490, or $455 less than the CR-V.
