2010 Nissan Rogue Krom Edition

The Japanese automaker Nissan has launched a special edition version of the 2010 model year Rogue crossover utility vehicle. Called the Rogue Krom, the new package is all about appearance with its aggressive sport styling, exclusive 17-inch wheels and a center-exit sport-tuned exhaust.

The all new Krom edition is based on the 2010 Rogue S, and adds a brilliant finish to the aluminum-alloy wheels and then wraps them with a set of 225/60 Continental Conti 4x4 Contact tires and a unique grille to match the rims embedded in the aggressive front fascia with integrated fog lights. In the rear, the Rogue Krom edition includes a boldly styled sport fascia with integrated center-exit exhaust, 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.

Press release

Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) today announced the latest addition to its Krom specialty vehicles lineup, the 2010 Nissan Rogue Nissan Rogue Krom edition, which is scheduled to go on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide in December 2009. The new Rogue Krom edition is designed to offer a unique dimension to traditional compact sport utility vehicles with its aggressive sport styling, exclusive 17-inch wheels and a center-exit sport-tuned exhaust. Nissan also offers a Krom edition of the popular Nissan cube®.

The limited production Rogue Krom edition is available in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations and in just three exterior colors - Venom Red, Wicked Black and Gotham Gray.

Built on the solid foundation of the Rogue S, the Krom edition adds 17-inch brilliant finish aluminum-alloy wheels with P225/60R Continental Conti 4x4 Contact tires and a unique grille embedded in the aggressive front fascia with integrated fog lights. In the rear, the Rogue Krom edition includes a boldly styled sport fascia with integrated center-exit exhaust, 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.

"The new Krom edition expands Rogue’s already strong appeal, bringing its unmistakable sporty and active design to buyers seeking to stand out from the crowd of ordinary compact SUVs," said Pat Steiner, director, Specialty Vehicles Group, NNA. "Just as our NISMO models add enhanced performance straight from the factory, the Krom lineup offers intriguing, customized design right off the showroom floor."

Based at NNA headquarters in Franklin, Tenn., the Specialty Vehicles Group was formed in August 2006 to develop niche derivatives of Nissan vehicles.

"Krom adds a level of style and appearance, along with a sense of intrigue, excitement and self-expression. The Krom name suggests ’cars with attitude,’ rather than a literal interpretation of chrome wheels or trim," added Steiner. "We leverage our speed and flexibility in bringing exciting new products to market - faster and for less than ’mainstream’ models."

Mitsubishi put more Evo into the Out lander then Nissan put GT-R into this Rogue

What makes Nissan Rogue outstanding is that is is bigger than its competitors because it has no optional third row seater, like Toyota RAV4 which makes it’s second row a lot more spacious! The seating is so spacious and the materials used are the best to outlast the others in the same class.The space for cargo sin this car is exceptionally large!I’m actually impressed that there is a little divider which pops up from the carpeted floor..This is a real innovation I’ve ever seen in a compact cross-over!

The way I see it nissan just wanted to keep their Rogue Sale running.

the basic rogue front end is not very attractive, and this strangely named modification does not make any improvement. Nissan needs to come up with a distinctive front end look that has a quality appearance and stick with it.

A rakish design, with gently arced roofline and a more aggressive tuck downward in back give the Rogue more of a ‘lifted’....hmmmm ya that doesn’t make this car, look all that great. But at that price I will still look at it.
