All-wheel drive provides increased traction and handling in rough or low-traction conditions on Houston roads and also can helps increase towing capacity of the Nissan Rogue, making it a top priority for many crossover and SUV shoppers. So, is the Nissan Rogue AWD? Bellaire drivers can rest assured, the Nissan Rogue is available with all-wheel drive at every trim level. Better still, the Rogue comes with available Intelligent AWD that automatically senses a loss in traction and adjusts traction as necessary, giving you confidence whether you’re commuting to Pearland for work or dining out in Houston. Find out more about the Nissan Rogue all-wheel drive performance including how to avoid the AWD error on the Nissan Rogue. These capabilities are designed by Nissan to keep you safer on Houston roads year-round. Read on to learn more from the team at Central Houston Nissan.



How Does Nissan Intelligent AWD Work?

The Rogue Intelligent AWD is a state-of-the-art drivetrain from Nissan which distributes power as needed to maximize traction. With this system, the Rogue starts off in AWD to enhance grip until it gets up to speed. From there, the Rogue conserves power by redirecting torque to the front wheels for improved efficiency. If the Rogue encounters slippery conditions in on Houston area roads, the Intelligent AWD system redistributes power to any wheels that need it to maintain control.

Nissan Rogue All-Wheel Drive Configurations

The Nissan Rogue offers Intelligent AWD throughout the lineup with models including:

  • Nissan Rogue S AWD
  • Nissan Rogue SV AWD
  • Nissan Rogue SV AWD Hybrid
  • Nissan Rogue SL AWD
  • Nissan Rogue SL Hybrid AWD

Nissan Rogue AWD Lock Button

The Nissan Rogue AWD Lock is a unique feature that offers a low-speed regulator button that can lock all four wheels for better traction in snowy conditions or while off-roading. The Nissan Rogue AWD Lock splits the power between the front and rear wheels for improved control.

AWD Error on Nissan Rogue

The Nissan Rogue AWD error light can come on for a variety of reasons. Oil temperature is one common cause for the AWD error on a Nissan Rogue, and we recommend pulling over and letting the engine rest until the light turns off — even if the light does turn off, though, it’s a good idea to have the Rogue checked out at a service center.
