  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Nissan Builds Tracked Rogue, Instantly Makes Its Mainstream Crossover Cool

Recommended Posts

Nissan is starting to make a habit of swapping its crossovers’ wheels with snow tracks. Following last year’s tracked Juke Nismo RS, the company has unveiled a new tracked Rogue. The only difference? Whereas the Juke was built in Europe, and demonstrated in Finland, the newly tank-like Rogue was assembled by Motorsports in Action in Quebec. Nissan’s really making tracks with this concept.

If there’s a point to Nissan’s conversion, we don’t know it. And neither do we really care—tracked vehicles are cool, and this Rogue is cool. The tracks come from American Track Truck, and necessitated modifications to the Rogue’s suspension and body to make room. The Rogue is otherwise stock, including its four-cylinder engine, Xtronic CVT, and all-wheel drive. The tracks limit top speed to 62 mph, but they gift the Rogue with the ability to scamper up a 45-degree grade and sail over obstacles as high as 23 inches.

With the white stuff finally starting to come down here after a slow start to winter, we’d love to keep one of these around the office for extreme commuting around Detroit. How about it, Nissan? Can we have a tracked Nissan—say, a Pathfinder?
