The 2024 Nissan Rogue draws 201 horsepower from a 1.5-liter engine block. With an inline-three constitution, this compact powertrain cranks out 225 pound-feet of torque at 2,800 RPM. Such a high output is possible because of variable compression during combustion. Displacing 2.5 L, the 2024 Kia Sportage’s four-cylinder engine only delivers 187 hp. This I-4 engine operates at a fixed compression ratio of 13:1. When revolving at 4,000 RPM, the engine dishes out only 178 lb-ft of torque. Without any trailer brakes, the Kia crossover SUV tows 1,652 net pounds. The Rogue’s turbocharged engine can tow up to 1,500 gross pounds.
