Nissan has crawled into the New York auto show in a vehicle ready for the Big Apple’s unforgiving pavement, fitting its Rogue with tracks made by American Track Truck. Dubbed Rogue Trail Warrior, this crossover is still powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder good for 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque coupled with an Xtronic CVT — plenty when it comes to family SUVs, and it also works when swapping wheels and tires for something more suitable to carefully navigating the outdoors.

How easy is this conversion? It takes a lot more than ditching the stock wheels and tires. Nissan had to modify the wheel wells and the suspension to fit these Dominator tracks that are 48 inches long, 30 inches high and 15 inches wide. Nissan also added a Warn 4K winch, LED light, a gear basket made by ARB, a camo wrap as well as custom fender flares.

This Rogue is equipped with a winch, but we imagine it probably won’t need it.

“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 of Product Planning at Nissan. “If you want to stand out from the crowd during a day on the slopes or the beach, this is the vehicle to take.”

This Rogue is one two special projects that Nissan will be showing off in New York, and is not a package you’ll be able to order at your local Nissan dealership. But Nissan has just given you the whole recipe, so you know it can be done with some work. And money. Don’t forget money.
