You’ve heard of snow tires, but what about snow tracks? The Nissan Winter Warrior concept vehicles — a Rogue, a Murano and a Pathfinder — have them, along with a slew of other accessories to ensure these SUVs can tackle just about any winter terrain.
Although the Winter Warrior concept models are headed for the Chicago Auto Show, Nissan revealed them ahead of time in a video that demonstrates exactly what they can do. It shows the SUVs gallivanting around snowy hills, virtually unstoppable thanks to their tanklike tracks. No doubt, the Winter Warrior concepts are cool, unique and exciting, but they come with a downside: If you ever get your hands on one, you’d never again be able to tell your boss that you can’t make it in because of the snow.
Of course, the other downside is that they’ll likely never make production. While you can make your own Nissan Winter Warrior — the tracks come from American Track Truck, and other upgrades are straight from the Genuine Nissan Accessories catalog — we suspect most Pathfinder, Rogue and Murano owners probably won’t make it happen. But it’s fun to dream.
