January 25th, 2016 by

2016 Nissan Rogue white exteriorNissan impressed drivers across Regina and Swift Current by revealing the 2016 Nissan Rogue Warrior, which is designed to handle the harsh Canadian winter. Its 2016 Montreal International Auto Show debut showcased a new breed of crossover that knows no fear when it comes to deep snow and plummeting temperatures. There’s no word on whether this model will be offered to customers, or whether it’s a one-time modification, but it remains a thrilling example of what Nissan’s crossover can do.

The Winter Warrior

The 2016 Nissan Rogue is already Nissan’s top-selling product in Canada, and has now been reinvented with heavy-duty snow tracks measuring 76 cm in height, 122 cm in length and with an individual track width of 38 cm. Coupled with the current all-wheel drive (AWD) system, which adapts to road conditions 30 times faster than the blink of an eye, the Warrior is more than ready for whiteout conditions.

In the words of Joni Paiva, president of Nissan Canada Inc, “The Rogue Warrior symbolizes the essence of our popular crossover and sport utility vehicle family, while also reminding show goers what Nissan is all about – being bold, pushing the limits, and exciting capability that’s anchored in quality.”

Great White Know-How

The 2016 Nissan Rogue Warrior has been made by Canadians, for Canadians. Entirely modified by Quebec-based Motorsports in Action (MIA), it boasts suspension adjustments, custom snow guards, and minor body tunings, but otherwise remains stock.

Built by those who know the expected conditions like the backs of their hands, it is capable of driving up to 100km/h, scaling a 45-degree grade in groomed snow, and has a ground clearance of 58 cm.

Champion Driver

The 2016 Rogue Warrior’s official driver is the 2015 Micra Cup champion, Olivier Bédard. Having progressed from karting to racing in a subcompact Nissan Micra, the team at Nissan felt that he was well-placed to put the 2016 Nissan Rogue Warrior through its paces.

“I can honestly say I never expected to have so much fun behind the wheel of a crossover!” said Bédard, “The Rogue Warrior is an awesome beast of a machine — driving it makes you feel like you can conquer any challenge that comes in your path.”
