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.
