In celebration of the Chicago Auto Show, Nissan has given three of its popular SUVs – the Pathfinder, Murano and Rogue (also known as X-Trail, tested here in summertime Singapore) – a little competitive edge, by equipping them with sets of heavy-duty snow tracks. The custom-made Nissan “Winter Warrior” SUVs are ready to tackle even the record-breaking snowfalls experienced by many parts of the United States already this year.
All three machines feature custom heavy-duty track systems with custom matte-black finish frames. The Dominator Tracks are 1219mm long, 762mm high and 381mm wide, and they replace the vehicles’ wheels and tyres. The suspensions and wheel wells were modified to fit the snow tracks, but otherwise all drivetrain components, including the engines and Xtronic transmissions, are unchanged.
Nissan Design America (NDA) created identical, custom matte red-chrome body wraps featuring a unique “track” design and Nissan “Winter Warrior” signage. A range of genuine Nissan accessories are also fitted to the three Winter Warriors, including cargo area protectors, all-season floor mats, roof rail crossbars and rear bumper protectors. They also each feature 2.74m x 2.74m hatch tents for hardcore winter camping enthusiasts.
