Nissan unveiled the last of four new vehicles debuting at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition. The dramatic reveal featured a special interactive presentation of the Intelligent Safety Shield technologies available in the redesigned 2017 Rogue (known as X-Trail in the Middle East) against a high-action video. The video was followed by a drive-out of a pair of the Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition vehicles accompanied by battle-ready stormtroopers.
Custom features of the Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition – the first production vehicle ever to include Star Wars-branded elements – include a unique badge, exclusive interior and exterior trim items and a full-size Death Trooper collectible helmet.
Only 5,400 units of the Limited Edition vehicle will be available in the U.S. and Canadian markets. The Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition package is only available on 2017 Rogue SV equipped with the Sun and Sound Touring Package.
“The Nissan Rogue and the first Star Wars standalone movie share more than just a name. The Star Wars film franchise has pushed the boundaries of technology since the debut of the original episode nearly 40 years ago,” said Jeremy Tucker, vice president, Marketing Communications & Media, Nissan North America, Inc. “Nissan is doing the same with its industry-leading cars, trucks and SUVs like the new Rogue – our most advanced Rogue to date – so it’s natural that the two join forces.”
Nissan has also created an immersive “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”-inspired experience for consumers visiting the Nissan display during the Los Angeles Auto Show, which takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Nov. 18 through 27. Activities include a full-scale Tie Fighter replica, a Star Wars character-themed digital mirror experience, an Augmented Reality generator and weekend appearances by stormtroopers. In addition, a special gallery features a display of costumes and model props used during the production of the upcoming “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” movie, including Y-Wing, AT-ACT and X-Wing fighters.
