Car and Driver: Crossover Tracks! Nissan Shows Off Tracked Winter Warrior CUVs [Video]


Recommended Posts

Nissan Winter Warrior Concepts


Everybody knows that crossovers are kinda wimpy compromises that offer a carlike ride and a trucklike ride height. Americans, however, don’t see themselves as wimpy people. We are, after all, a nation of rugged individualists, shopping at Target, eating at Applebee’s, and digging that subversive Macklemore cat. But sometimes, the trek to Bennigan’s gets a little more hairball than one might like. With that in mind, Nissan has unleashed this trio of Winter Warrior concepts.

For this year’s Chicago auto show, Nissan took a Rogue, a Murano, and a Pathfinder; wrapped them in chrome-red vinyl; hogged out the fender wells a bit; and affixed Dominator tracks from American Track Truck. The units themselves are 48 inches long, 30 inches high, and 15 inches wide, offering an increase in ground clearance, as well as giving Nissan’s CUVs significantly less ground pressure than they’d have with silly ol’ pedestrian wheels. Which means they can traverse the gnarest of powder without getting stuck. The tracked-CUV thing has become a trend for Nissan of late, as it previously showed off a Juke NISMO RS and another Rogue so equipped.


Nissan has also used the utes to showcase a number of its accessories, including cargo-area protectors, all-season floor mats, roof-rail crossbars, and rear-bumper protectors. The cherry on top? Each vehicle carries a 9×9-foot hatch tent, just in case you’d like to stay out in the elements all night. Or, you know, if you just wanna camp out in a snowy Walmart parking lot. Regardless of the hue of your Shackletonian dreams, check out the video below to begin stoking them, Mr. Mitty:
