The Nissan Rogue towing capacity maxes out at 1,102 pounds, which, for reference, is the approximate weight of a grand piano. With a hitch installed, this compact SUV could easily tow a 4x7-foot utility trailer.

As a compact SUV, this is an impressive towing capacity, showing that the 2018 Nissan Rogue has a lot of strength to offer drivers in the greater St. Charles, O'Fallon, and Saint Peters areas, while remaining small and agile enough for commutes into St. Louis.

Nissan Rogue Engine Specs 

To reach its 1,102-pound towing capacity, the Nissan Rogue is equipped with a 2.5L I-4 engine that generates 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.

It's paired with an Xtronic CVT® (continuously variable transmission) that uses multiple inputs to provide efficient shifting and keep you in the best gear for optimal performance. This includes downshifting to accommodate towing weight while descending a hill.

Drivers have the option of a front-wheel drivetrain or Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD). While both drivetrains have the same towing capabilities, Intelligent AWD actively monitors the roadways and redistributes torque between the front and rear wheels to improve your grip.

This may be useful to have while towing a trailer on winding roadways where you'll need a lot of traction.

2018 Rogue Driver-Assist Features

When you're towing weight behind you in your Nissan Rogue, you can lean on a few helpful driver-assist features to reach your destination more safely and conveniently.

Hill Start Assist, for example, comes standard and is especially handy when you're stopped at a red light while climbing a steep hill. As you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator, this feature will prevent you from rolling backward.

On the highway, you'll also have Intelligent Lane Intervention to help keep you steady. If it senses you're drifting from your intended lane of travel, it will issue an alert and gently steer you back between the lines.

Cargo Area: Extra Space for Everything You Need 

In addition to what you can fit in a trailer, the Nissan Rogue also makes a sizable cargo area available for everything else you may need along your journey. This SUV seats a total of five passengers, while still providing 39.2 cubic feet of space behind the second row.

If you need more room, you can maximize your space with the 60/40-split rear seats, or fold down the second row completely and fill up the 70 cubic-foot cargo area.

The space is easily accessible, even with your hands full, with the Motion Activated Liftgate that opens with a wave of your foot under the rear bumper.

You can make the most of your cargo space with the versatile Nissan Divide-N-Hide dividers. Create a hidden box under the cargo area, fold them out to make a double-decker loading space, or push everything down to extend the load floor. This is a convenient feature for fitting everything you need.
