As members of one of the most prolific segments in the American automotive market, Nissan SUVs generally sell remarkably well. However, this is not just because everyone adores these high-riders, but rather because the brand is known for its dependable, high-value, and easy-to-live-with vehicles. Presented in several configurations, from small to full-size, and even with alternative powertrains, there is an SUV for everyone. 

The Number One Model

The Nissan Rogue is the brand’s best-selling model in the United States, and this pivotal model has now received a host of updates for the 2024 model year. It needs them to elevate it in a competitive class. The facelifted Rogue has an updated exterior design language and a more technologically-rich cabin featuring Google built-in–the first Nissan to be equipped as such–while the top trims have a 12.3-inch interface. 

Nissan has updated the front and rear fascias, while the V-motion grille also sports a redesign. The split-headlight treatment features lower lamps that now are not separated from the bolder grille, while the daytime running lights on upper-level trims are sleek and contemporary. Wheel sizes begin at 17 inches for the S, while new 18-inch alloy wheels are equipped for the SV. The Platinum trim, on the other hand, has fresh 19-inch designs. A reworked selection of hues for the Nissan Rogue includes Deep Ocean Blue Pearl, Baja Storm, Everest White Pearl, and a few two-tone combinations with a black roof.

The Budget-Friendly Model

The 2024 Nissan Kicks has a starting price tag of $22,155 MSRP (Plus destination fee), making the small crossover an affordable option in the market. This pricing strategy keeps the Kicks accessible to a broad range of customers. Even though the style of the vehicle does not get any memorable alterations, the all-new Kicks receives NissanConnect Services for the mid-level SV trim with a three-year trial. Previously reserved for the top-tier SR, the feature allows remote lock/unlock doors and start/stop the engine from smartphones, adding a layer of convenience to owners.

The Kicks has useful features such as power windows and locks, cruise control, a six-speaker audio system, and a seven-inch infotainment system. The vehicle also boasts a range of driver-assistance systems, including blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, lane departure warning, and rear cross-traffic alert.

The Model that Blazes Trails

It is not easy to stand out among excellent options, but the 2024 Nissan Pathfinder manages to do that with its Rock Creek Edition. It combines strong towing capabilities and off-road prowess and should give the Pathfinder a leg up among consumers who seek outdoor adventures. Of course, most owners will probably be taming city streets rather than the wilderness, but the Pathfinder also checks all of those boxes. 

The powertrain is improved in the latest generation by removing the continuously variable transmission and replacing it with a nine-speed automatic. Accelerating up to 284 horsepower–295 horsepower in the Rock Creek Edition–performance is sprightly, while its ride, on-road sophistication, handling, and spacious, well-built interior make it a reliable automobile.

Even though this is a small sample, Nissan’s number of SUVs on offer is staggering, delivering high levels of practicality.
