The Pathfinder, Murano and Rogue have been customized to hit the snow-covered slopes.

Nissan has modified its Pathfinder, Murano and Rogue crossovers into 'Winter Warriors' capable of driving atop deep snow.

Each vehicle has been outfitted with a few official Nissan accessories and a promotional exterior wrap, though the primary upgrade is a set of Dominator snow tracks built by American Track Truck.

Each track measures 48 inches long and 15 inches wide, spreading weight across a much wider area than traditional tires. Vehicles can then drive on unmaintained roads, trails and other snow-covered terrain typically accessible only via snowmobile or groomers.

"With their solid Nissan underpinnings and exceptional ground clearance, these Winter Warriors are serious, extreme weather machines, not toys," said Nissan North America marketing senior VP Christian Meunier.

The company last year revealed the Juke Nismo RSnow, outfitted with the same Dominator track system, capable of driving at speeds of up to 62 mph. The modifications are said to have cost approximately $15,000.
