The 2013 Nissan Rogue up close and personal

The 2013 Nissan Rogue

The 2013 The Nissan Rogue SV with all-wheel-drive is a popular grocery-getting Crossover that features a gas-saving CVT transmission.

Unlike a traditional transmission the Rogue’s continuously varying transmission is designed to be ultra efficient.

It’s a belt that slides up and down on a cone.

What it means in real life is that when you step on the pedal the engine winds up but the there are no gears for the Rogue to shift. Instead the belt slides up the cone into the Rogue engine’s most efficient rev range so you get better fuel economy but some of engine drone.
