The Nissan 370Zki and Armada Snow Patrol are pitched as the ultimate cars in which to tackle the harsh winter conditions typically found in the Rocky Mountains or other winter sports hotspots around the globe. The aptly named show auto replaces its fickle summer tires for snow-ready skis up front and tracks out back.

The vehicle has rear Dominator tracks from American Track Truck Inc.

The Nissan Armada Snow Patrol has been revealed this week for the Chicago motor show, taking the company's flagship SUV to new heights.

The engine and transmission have been specially mounted and there's a specially made skid plate to protect the driveline from damage.

'Prior to its debut here in Chicago, we put the 370Zki through its paces on the slopes in Wyoming where its performance heritage really came through, ' said Nissan North America's VP for product planning, Michael Bunce. The cosmetic modifications are light limited and wrapped by Icon Image Graphics body and yellow tint on the headlights. "It's also fun to shake things up with something totally unexpected once in a while-and that's the Nissan 370Zki". The Snow Patrol comes offers a two-inch front and one-inch rear suspension lift and mounted on 20 x 9-inch Cognito Series 61 wheels with a satin-black finish, grille-protector bar wrapped in 35-inch Pro Comp MT2 off-road tires.

Nevertheless, Nissan considered that they could improve this vehicle and they have transformed it into a snowmobile, Nissan 370Zki. The recipe starts with the Armada we all know and love, specified with four-wheel-drive. The Armada features a best-in-class, standard 390hp 5.6L DOHC Endurance V-8-more than enough power to tow some toys through a winter wonderland. "We think this vehicle is going to attract a lot of attention among visitors to the Chicago Auto Show".
