Nissan today announced the latest addition to its Krom specialty vehicles lineup, the 2010 Nissan Rogue Krom edition, which is scheduled to go on sale nationwide in December. The latest edition will be Nissan’s second Krom model sold in the U.S., the first being the Krom edition of the 2009 Nissan Cube that went on sale earlier this year.
The latest Rogue Krom edition builds on the Rogue S model and is available in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations and in just three exterior colors--Venom Red, Wicked Black and Gotham Gray. The vehicle also gets exclusive 17-inch wheels and a centrally-mounted exhaust system.
Other distinguishing features include a unique grille, sporty front and rear bumpers, a body-colored rear spoiler and rear privacy glass. Body-colored power outside mirrors, a Krom emblem and steering wheel-mounted audio controls complete the Krom equipment modifications.
For 2010, the Nissan Rogue is available in three offerings, Rogue S, Rogue SL and the latest Rogue Krom edition--each equipped with a standard 170-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) and optional all-wheel drive. All Rogues offer up to 58 cubic-feet of storage and come with chrome door handles.
