YEP, your eyes aren’t deceiving you – this one-of-a-kind X-Trail isn’t computer generated. It has been built and it’s debuting later this week.

Nissan USA has given the X-Trail’s (called a Rogue for the US market) normally absent off-road ability a lift with its Trail Warrior Project.

Nissan Rogue Trail Warrior snow/sand tracksSet to debut at the New York International Auto Show later this week, the one-off project vehicle sets itself apart (and above) from the crossover SUV it’s based on thanks to 30-inch-high Dominator Tracks from American Track Truck.

The snow/sand tracks are 48 inches long and 15 inches wide, and they represent a vehicle capable of dominating snow banks and sand dunes.

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