Nissan Winter Warrior Concepts

Walk Around of Nissan’s Winter Warriors Snow Track SUVs

Nissan Winter Warriors

Also expected to attract enthusiastic crowds to the Nissan display are the aggressive Winter Warriors. Created in celebration of the Chicago Auto Show, Nissan has given three of its popular crossovers a little competitive edge for winter driving – creating one-off versions of its popular Pathfinder, Murano and Rogue equipped with sets of heavy-duty snow tracks.

All three Nissan Winter Warriors feature custom heavy-duty track systems with custom matte-black finish frames. The snow tracks are 48 inches long, 30 inches high and 15 inches wide and replace the vehicles’ wheels and tires. 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 (NDA) created a design theme for the 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 9×9-foot hatch tents for true hardcore winter camping enthusiasts.

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
