At a remote test facility, the new Nissan Rogue was battle-tested with the ultimate challenge: a simulated battlefield from ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY. Using the Nissan Rogue’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive and Safety Shield Technologies, the Nissan engineer took on stormtroopers, TIE fighters, AT-ACTs and anything the galaxy threw the Rogue’s way.
Nissan customized two 2017 Rogue vehicles, the first of these vehicles is an X-wing-inspired Rogue, complete with thrusters, blasters, side mirror Rebel logo projectors and an astromech droid. The second custom Rogue is inspired by an X-wing pilot jump suit and is wrapped in special orange and white graphics and logos. Alas neither of these will be available to the public.
However Nissan did unveil the Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition – the first production vehicle ever to include Star Wars-branded elements. Available in Magnetic Black or Glacier White there will be just 5,400 crossovers inspired by the galaxy far, far away. The Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition package will be available for a MSRP of $1,990, and is only available on 2017 Rogue SV equipped with the Sun and Sound Touring Package.
On the exterior, Nissan finished the grille and accompanying surrounds, the roof rails, and door handles in gloss black. There’s unique badging on the front doors, while the D-pillars feature the Rebel Alliance’s Starbird logo on the passenger side and Galactic Empire’s crest on the driver’s side. The Star Wars logo sits on the clear rear bumper protector. Finally, there are gloss-black, 17-inch alloys.
Inside, owners get to step on all sorts of Star Wars stuff. Illuminated kick plates feature the franchise’s logo, while there are limited-edition floor mats. The Starbird and Imperial Crest make appearances in the cupholders, while passengers sit on Charcoal Black cloth seats and can imagine the Death Star floating above while looking through the panoramic sunroof.
While all the style stuff is great, the limited-edition model gets a fantastic piece of memorabilia – an officially licensed Death Trooper helmet and stand.
