2025 Nissan Rogue Rock Creek Edition Expands the Brand’s Ruggedized Offerings

If the Pathfinder is a bit too much, here's another option

The 2025 Nissan Rogue Rock Creek adds yet another option in the growing “soft-roader” class.

Adventure, TRD Off-Road, Badlands, Wilderness, Meridian, and now Rock Creek. If you’re looking for a small SUV that can hack it on some slightly tougher terrain than your typical parking lot, the 2025 Nissan Rogue follows up on the Pathfinder Rock Creek with a similarly rugged version, while tweaking the available tech for this model year’s lineup.

Essentially, the 2025 Nissan Rogue Rock Creek offers up what we’ve already seen in the Pathfinder with a new wrapper. Cosmetic changes include a blacked-out front fascia,with three (false) openings at the top of the grille, a nod to the current and past Pathfinders. You also get orange accents on the badge, wheels and front “recovery hooks”, though the latter is just a bit of paint where the recovery hooks should be. Up top, you get tubular roof rails with crossbars, while the most functional change comes down to the 29-inch Falken Wildpeak A/T Trail all-terrain tires. Here, Nissan fits a set of 235/65-R17 tires, while those Wildpeaks seem to be the favored choice among these more off-roadish crossovers. In fact, they proved decently capable in our recent Mazda CX-50 Meridian Edition testing.

The 2025 Nissan Rogue Rock Creek edition gets an off-road setting for its surround-view camera system that works up to 12 mph. It also gets hill descent control to go with its standard all-wheel drive system (though you don’t get any extra drive modes here). The Rock Creek adds in standard heated seats over the base Rogue, as well as a 12-volt power outlet in the cargo area. An optional premium package adds in wireless smartphone charging, a heated steering wheel, auto-dimming rearview mirror, power liftgate, a power driver’s seat with memory settings and a power-adjustable passenger seat.

Under the hood, this Rogue still gets the same three-cylinder, 1.5-liter turbocharged engine putting out 201 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque through a continuously variable transmission.

Other tweaks across the 2025 Nissan Rogue lineup includes ProPilot Assist 2.1. The latest version of Nissan’s semi-autonomous driver aid suite adds in hands-free driving on certain single-lane highways, and can handle acceleration and braking, as well as steering assistance. ProPilot 2.1, the most advanced versionof the system, is optional on the SL and Platinum trims (but not the Rock Creek). The Rock Creek edition, for its part, gets the more basic version of ProPilot Assist also standard on the SV, which combines adaptive cruise control with steering assist, but not the Google built-in navigation assistance to enable the advanced features.

Pricing is not available just yet, but the 2025 Nissan Rogue lineup will go on sale this summer.
