Watch - Nissan Rogue Warrior Concept on Snow Tracks

Video shows tracked Rogue towing skiers up the slope.

With a set of heavy-duty snow tracks strapped to its axles, the Nissan Rogue Warrior is said to be capable of tackling the harshest winter conditions. So it comes as no surprise Nissan showed a Rogue, Nissan's best-selling vehicle in Canada, sporting the concept drivetrain at the snowy 2016 Montreal International Auto Show this week.

Nissan turned to Quebec-based Motorsports in Action (MIA) to convert the pedestrian compact crossover to the Rogue Warrior. MIA used a Dominator track system from American Track Truck to tackle the foul-weather roads. Each snow track measures 30 inches high and 48 inches long, while the track is 15 inches wide.

In order to accommodate the snow tracks, MIA made adjustments to the suspension. Additionally, custom snow guards and minor body modifications were made to make room for the setup. The drivetrain, including the Xtronic CVT and all-wheel drive system, is unchanged. With the snow tracks, the Nissan Rogue Warrior can be driven up to 62 mph and scale a 45-degree grade in groomed snow. Ground clearance is said to be 23 inches.

Nissan says the lack of fixed gears in the Xtronic CVT in the Rogue Warrior is a perfect match for the snow track setup because the engine and transmission can constantly adjust for the right driving conditions. That sounds similar to the design of most snowmobiles to us.
