Absolutely Mental Nissan Rogue Warrior Concept Debuts With Snow Tracks

While the world has been focused on the Detroit Auto Show, it may surprise some that the Montreal International Auto Show is also underway in Canada.

While it hasn’t attracted a huge range of bold production and concept cars like NAIAS, Nissan has debuted a very special car at the show, dubbed the Rogue Warrior Concept.

The car has been created to deal with the snowiest conditions of Canada and rather than wheels, rolls on a snow track system, similar to Ken Block’s unique RaptorTRAX off-roader. The tracks themselves are 48-inches long, 30-inches tall and 15-inches wide and add a whole range of capabilities a standard Rogue could never dream of matching.

Beyond this rather major change, the vehicle also has a new suspension system giving it a massive 23 inches of ground clearance. Thanks to that key figure and the limitless grip provided by the snow tracks, it can climb a 45 degree snow-filled slope and even reach speeds of up to 100 km/h.

According to director of marketing at Nissan Canada Steve Rhind “When the all-wheel drive system on the Rogue and Nissan’s advanced Xtronic transmission are matched with snow tracks, it results in something spectacular – a Rogue capable of overcoming severe, off-road winter conditions.”
