Nissan ProPILOT Bows on 2018 Rogue
Nissan’s new ProPILOT Assist hands-on-wheel technology paves the way to the next level of autonomous driving and will be available on the 2018 Rogue SL Platinum Package with a starting Canadian starting price of $36,998 in early 2018.
Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist technology, that continues to pave the way for future fully autonomous vehicles, will be available on the company’s Canadian bestseller, the 2018 Rogue compact SUV.
ProPILOT Assist reduces the hassle of stop-and-go driving by helping control acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane highway driving.
ProPILOT Assist is the foundation for the autonomous vehicles of the future. It helps drivers maintain lane control, navigate stop-and-go traffic, maintain a set vehicle speed and maintain a set distance to the vehicle ahead – all with a simple two-button operation.
ProPILOT Assist is available as an option on the 2018 Rogue SL grade as part of the Platinum Package, with an expected starting price of $36,998 when it hit dealers’ lots in early 2018.
ProPILOT Assist will also launch on the Nissan Leaf in early 2018. Nissan has plans to extend the technology to more models in the North America, Europe, Japan and China – with 10 models to be launched by 2020 by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, the world’s largest automotive manufacturer.
The 2018 Rogue is available in three well-equipped grade levels, S, SV and SL.
Rogue continues to be Nissan’s best-selling vehicle in Canada. Calendar year 2017 sales-to-date of 33,180 units represents an 11.6 per cent increase over the previous year.
