2017 Rogue Trail Warrior Project Unveiled at New York Auto Show

2017 Nissan Rogue Trail Warrior ProjectAt the 2017 New York International Auto Show, Nissan showed off a hardcore off-road machine unlike any other—the Rogue Trailer Warrior Project. This unique vehicle was designed just for the show, so, unfortunately, you won’t be seeing it at Lewis Nissan.

The most noticeable feature is the snow/sand track. These tracks let the Rogue Trail Warrior glide right over the trickiest terrains. They are 30 inches high, 48 inches long, and 15 inches wide and are used in place of the Rogue’s normal wheels. While the suspension and wheel wells were modified for the tracks, all other powertrain components are standard, including the Rogue’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.

In addition to the amazing khaki-painted tracks, the Trail Warrior has a custom camouflage body wrap and military-style yellow glassworks.

“This new Rogue Trail Warrior adds a new dimension to family adventures with its snow/sand tracks, gear basket, winch and camo paint,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. “If you want to stand out from the crowd during a day on the slopes or the beach, this is the vehicle to take.”

If you could have an adventure in the Nissan Rogue Trail Warrior Project, where would you go?

Nissan Micromobility Vehicles Debut at New York Auto Show

At the 2016 New York Auto International Show in late March, Nissan debuted its new micromobility concepts, a group of four small cars called Nissan New Mobility Concepts, which it used in a series of events at the show.

Nissan micromobility vehiclesThe Nissan micromobility vehicles are part of Nissan’s theme for the year: emphasizing the importance of micro vehicles to the future of transportation, especially in urban environments. The NNMCs are all-electric vehicles ranging from the size of small motorcycles to two-seater cars and are very small and lightweight, easily maintaining a charge while being driven around cities. They have a max speed of 25 mph, perfect for inner-city driving.

The NNMCs aren’t necessarily meant to be owned; in 2014, Nissan teamed up with the West Coast-based company Scoot, which provides electric vehicles for temporary use at $2 per half hour, and Nissan donated some NNMCs for this. Nissan says the NNMCs are useful for “last mile” transportation, as in getting someone to their destination after using public transport to go a certain distance.
