Nissan announces the Rogue "Krom" edition...HUH?!

http://offroader.modernracer.com/201...unveiled/1211/

Pardon me if I'm not impressed. Can't call it a NISMO edition, so call it a Krom instead?????? From the Nissan Cube?!??!

Quote:
Nissan has announced the latest addition to its “Krom” specialty vehicles lineup, the 2010 Nissan Rogue Krom edition, which is scheduled to go on sale at U.S. 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 4×4 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.”
The Rogue has strong appeal?! Where?

I still can't get over this quote from the article. Just where in North America is the Rogue in demand and how can they in the same breath mention NISMO editions of Nissan vehicles?

Can't stand the Rogue or the Cube. Other than completely remodeling it there is nothing they can slap on it or tune that would make me look at either. Anything other than the Altima and Maxima the car platforms are week in appearance.

2000 SE PP-regret the trade and its missed everyday
2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8- Like it very much so more and more everyday

I actually saw a KROM Nissan Cube and did a double take thinking it said KRON.

"WTF!!! Ohhhhh it says Krom...hey...what they hell is a Krom?"
