Nissan goes slightly insane, attaches snow tracks to a Rogue crossover

That's certainly one way to showcase your car's all-wheel-drive system.

Nissan’s number one-selling product in Canada has been transformed into an extreme prototype, which sits on heavy-duty snow tracks measuring 30”/76 cm in height, 48”/122 cm in length and the individual track width is 15”/38 cm.

Sure, you can add some snow tires to your car for a bit of extra traction in the winter. Or, you could take a page from Nissan and slap on some heavy-duty treads -- although we'd suggest against it if you have a factory warranty.

Nissan rolled out its Rogue Warrior concept at the 2016 Montreal International Auto Show to give its all-wheel-drive crossover a bit more street cred -- or, should we say, mountain cred?

Despite the heft of the treads, it gives the vehicle some preternatural abilities in the snow. It travels over the white stuff at speeds up to 62 mph, tackles 45-degree inclines and rocks a ride height of nearly two feet. Yet, it still remains powered by Nissan's four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Nissan will never, ever build something like this for the general public, but that doesn't mean you can't sit back and enjoy it from afar.
