Set to debut at the Chicago Auto Show, the one-off models were designed to deal with the worst weather that Mother Nature can dish out. As a result, the concepts have been equipped with Dominator snow tracks that measure 48 inches long, 30 inches high, and 15 inches wide. Engineers had to modify the suspension and enlarge the wheel wells to get the tracks to fit but Nissan says the concepts continue to use stock engines and Xtronic transmissions.
Besides being equipped with snow tracks, Nissan applied a custom red-chrome matte body wrap with tracks graphics and "Winter Warrior" badging. The models also have an assortment of accessories including roof rails, cargo area protectors, and all-season floor mats. The concepts also come with a 9x9-foot tent that is ideal for "hardcore winter camping enthusiasts."
According to Nissan North America's senior vice president of Sales & Marketing and Operations, "With their solid Nissan underpinnings and exceptional ground clearance, these Winter Warriors are serious, extreme weather machines, not toys." Christian Meunier went on to say "... they sure are fun – just like our entire lineup of family adventure-ready Pathfinders, Muranos and Rogues that you can drive straight off the showroom floor."
