All New 2017 Nissan Qashqai Release Date and Price
At this time, most buyers would like to purchase Juke or Rogue Select as the less expensive alternative to enjoy the Rogue. It was introduced in 2007 and the popularity is getting increased. Now, we found a big information from Nissan that they will drop the Rogue Select in future and it will be replaced with 2017 Nissan Qashqai.
2017 Qashqai is a smaller crossover which is designed to complete the demand in European market. Both Qashqai and Rogue are using Renault-Nissan’s modular CMF platform. The difference is this Qashqai has shorter dimension than the sibling.
Speaking about this new car, it seems that Nissan has big plan in order to offer several revisions around its visual design. The changes around 2017 Nissan Qashqai will be prepared to cover the trend on American market but at this moment, we heard that the design will be a bit similar to the one that has been ready for European market for few months ahead.
2017 Nissan Qashqai is still hard to predict about the mechanical details especially for the American version. It is only speculated by many reviews that this crossover could be installed with turbocharged four-cylinder engine and 1.6 liter with the capability to produce the amount of output for around 120 horsepower and 177 foot-pounds of torque. For the European model, buyers will be provided with six-speed manual transmission as the standard while American version will get automatic transmission only. The similarity is around the turbodiesel four-banger.
Up to now, we found no comments at all given by Nissan about all recent rumors and speculations. If all rumors come true, it seems that the company will start the debut for 2017 Nissan Qashqai sometime at the end of this year or perhaps at the beginning of 2016 to make it as 2017 model year. For the price tag, the base version could be about $21,500 in order to fill the gap between the Juke with the starting price around $20,250 and the Rogue which is $23,050.
We glad to hear that the official has confirmed that they would like to expand the Rogue by offering gasoline-electric hybrid due to the trend and demand is quite high. It will be launch for 2017 model year and the sales market could be started in the next spring. It means that the car might go with the same release date as 2017 Nissan Qashqai.
