Nissan’s Winter Warriors
Chicago – Feb. 9 – There’s winter, and then there’s the Warrior Winter.
Snowfall, ice, drifts – conditions that challenge even the m
ost capable of all-wheel drive vehicles. But not these aggressive Nissan models.
In celebration of the Chicago Auto Show, Nissan is creating one-off versions of its popular Pathfinder, Murano and Rogue equipped with sets of heavy-duty snow tracks.
“Rogue, Murano and Pathfinder are proven all-wheel-drive crossovers that are very popular with customers, judging from exceptional sales results in 2015 and now in January 2016,” said Christian Meunier, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations, Nissan North America.
“With the Winter Warriors, we wanted to take that idea to the extreme, enhancing the vehicles’ advanced systems with special snow tracks, Genuine Nissan Accessories, and a custom exterior appearance.”
All three Nissan Winter Warriors feature custom heavy-duty track systems with custom matte-black finish frames.
The suspensions and wheel wells were modified to fit the snow tracks, but otherwise all drivetrain components, including the engines and Xtronic transmissions, are factory fresh.
Nissan Design America created identical, custom matte red-chrome body wraps featuring a unique “track” design and Nissan “Winter Warrior” signage.
Accessories are also fitted to the three Winter Warriors, including cargo area protectors, all-season floor mats, roof rail crossbars and rear bumper protectors, as as well as 9×9-foot hatch tents for true hardcore winter camping enthusiasts.
