Nissan has confirmed that the next generation of its Rogue compact crossover utility vehicle (CUV) is scheduled to arrive in 2013 as a 2014 model.

The current Rogue was introduced to the North-American market in the 2008 model year and it got a minor facelift for 2011, so it's due for a major makeover.

Nissan hasn't released any details but don't be surprised if the new Rogue, along with its European sibling, the Qashquai, look a lot like the Hi-Cross concept that made its debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March.

Speculation suggests that the pair will share their platform with the 2013 Altima and that they might include a hybrid variant.

Like the new Altima, the second-generation Rogue will be built in the USA, in Nissan's Smyrna, Tennessee, production complex. The Rogue is currently built in Kyushu, Japan.
