Nissan just announced its redesigned Rogue will go on sale this November with a starting price of $23,350 including destination. That's a significant increase from the 2013's $21,170 starting price but less than the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.But sometimes it isn't the starting price that determines the best value. Automakers attach different features to their varying trim levels, and those trim names, of course, vary from brand to brand.
Luckily Nissan carries over the trim designations from the outgoing Rogue for 2014. The base level is the S, followed by the SV and the top-line SL. All three models come standard with front-wheel drive; all-wheel drive is optional across the lineup.
