The Nissan Rogue is a terrific example of Nissan All-Wheel Drive functionality, delivering excellent utility on the snow and on a system that’s always on and adapting to road conditions. You may have seen the Intelligent AWD system as a signature piece of technology on Nissans, but you may also have a few questions on how its features work. West End Nissan is well-versed in Nissan technology, especially the trademark AWD system. Learn more about how it works on the 2020 Nissan Rogue, and why it’s the perfect wintertime function for Nissan driving.
How Does Intelligent All-Wheel Drive Work?
Intelligent All-Wheel Drive works by providing efficient and much-needed traction, power and control your Nissan’s wheels to fight against inclement road conditions. Depending on your needs, the system routes power to those wheels most affected by the outside environment. The “zip” mode delivers equal power to the front and rear tires for terrific all-round grip, the “sip” mode gives you greater efficiency by just receiving power to the front wheels, while the “grip” mode gives some of the front power to the rear wheels, to help you accurately get around those tight and slick corners.
Is the Nissan Rogue Good in the Snow?
The Nissan Rogue was born and bred to excel in the snow, and the Intelligent AWD system is just the cherry on top that will have you enjoying your drive in safety all winter long. Perfect for Alberta weather, the Nissan Rogue is good in snow, even if you’re not. Whether snow-packed, icy or wet during winter, your Rogue will adapt to the road situation and have you on your way over bad conditions like it’s just an easy summer day cruise. The Rogue with AWD has been designed for both terrific performance and agility, so not only will you conquer the snowy Edmonton roads, you’ll do it without sacrificing the easily handling and mobility of the Rogue.
Do You Have to Turn on Nissan AWD?
The intelligent part of Nissan’s All-Wheel Drive system is you don’t have to think about it, as it’s always on and ready for you. As soon as you pull away in your Rogue (or equipped Nissan) the Nissan AWD system will be on, ready to deliver its signature power and traction to your wheels when necessary. No driver input is needed, as the system will adapt quicker than a blink of an eye to combat the conditions around you, whether snow, mud or sleet, and as soon as it appears.
