2017 Nissan Rogue “Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition” Drops in Los Angeles
Sci-Fi–Themed Crossover Registration Opens Today, Limited to 5,000
After a few months of waiting and some clever advertising teases, Nissan gave the world a look at the Star Wars-themed Rogue SUV, called the “Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition.” Intended to commemorate the premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story next month, each Nissan Rogue One gets some unique styling touches, a few Star Wars bits and baubles, and a very cool fullsize replica of the helmets worn by the movie’s fearsome Death Troopers. Prospective owners can register their interest at Nissan’s consumer website, and the company will limit production to just 5,000 units.
Based on the 2017 Rogue SV, the Rogue One comes with the Sun and Sound Touring package standard, adding a panoramic moonroof and Bose audio system. On top of that, the Rogue One comes with unique styling touches, including LED headlamps; black exterior accents on the grille, lower front finisher, lower rear finisher, roof rails, and door handles; limited-edition badging on the front doors; Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire logos on the D-pillars; a Star Wars-branded rear bumper protector; and black 17-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the Rogue One gets limited-edition embroidery on the floor mats, illuminated kick plates with the Star Wars logo, Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire logos on the cupholders, and interior accent lighting. A black interior is standard, while owners can choose between Glacier White and Magnetic Black for the exterior.
In addition to the car, Rogue One Limited Edition buyers will also receive a fullsize replica of a Death Trooper helmet. The serialized helmet will be the only licensed replica available, and if Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is as beloved as other movies in the franchise, it could become a valuable collector’s item in a few years.
Pricing for the Rogue One Nissan starts at $28,950 for the front-wheel-driver, with all-wheel drive adding $1,350 to the bottom line. Representing an added cost of $1,050 compared to a regular Rogue SV with the Sun and Sound Touring Package, it could be a great deal for die-hard Star Wars fans. Hand-raising for the Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition opens today.
