A Millennium Falcon-themed 2018 Nissan Rogue is the latest custom show car born of Nissan’s collaboration with Lucasfilm. Inspired by the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, the Millennium Falcon Nissan Rogue made its debut at the world premier of Solo: A Star Wars Story.
“As the third installment of our own trilogy of collaborations with Lucasfilm, we raised the bar delivering our best custom show vehicle yet,” said Jeremy Tucker, vice president of marketing communications and media. “We started with the best-selling Nissan Rogue and worked with the talented concept designers at Lucasfilm and ILM. Then, we turned to the experts at Vehicle Effects bring it to life. The result is hands-down the most complete and thrilling vehicle we’ve ever done.”
This unique Rogue marks the first time Nissan has done a Star Wars theme on not just the exterior, but the interior of a vehicle. Take a look inside and the buttons and lights look a lot like what’s found in the Millennium Falcon. There are sound effects too, because Nissan really had fun with this one.
Outside, there are hand-crafted aluminum body panels along with 3D-printed inserts that turn this Rogue from modern family car into a smuggler’s pride and joy. They didn’t miss a single detail. There’s a roof-mounted radar dish just waiting to be snapped off during a daring escape and a laser cannon to fight off Imperial forces.
The windshield looks like the same one you’ll find on the Falcon and designers didn’t forget to give the back of the Rogue special attention. There’s a subspace-hyperdrive unit that glows blue and spans the width of the vehicle. The finishing touch is a trio of Bose speakers and an 18-inch Bose subwoofer. Combined with the interior sound system, that’s 1,500 watts to see you through your next smuggling run.
Although the Millennium Falcon Nissan Rogue isn’t capable of making a hyperspace jump, it does have a some futuristic technology that is actually a reality on today’s cars. ProPilot Assist is Nissan’s driver assistance technology and it’s available on both the Nissan Rogue and the all-new Nissan Leaf electric vehicle. It controls steering, speed, and braking to assist the driver and make driving more relaxing.
Sadly, you can’t buy the Millennium Falcon Nissan Rogue. Trust me, we tried and they said no. The good news is the 2018 Nissan Rogue made for us non-smuggling, law-abiding citizens is available for sale at dealerships nationwide.
