I'm sure the my 15 Rogue does if the hill big enough. It will ramp up the rpm when in a coast and it starts picking up speed. It doesn't do it very often because most of the hills we normally aren't big enough. But one neighboring town main street is down hills both was with the low spot in the middle and is steep enough it does it every time in a 20 mph zone if I crest the hill at that speed.

Had 4 tanks when in Colorado around at 35 mpg, it's been a while but I think the CVT would ramp up to either 3400 or 4300 rpm going down hills to avoid brake use. Car's ahead of me were braking a lot more than I seemed to need to.
