    Nissan extensively redesigned the Rogue for the 2017 model year, giving it a sleeker exterior and adding a hybrid model to its stable for the first time. It’s a great vehicle with excellent driving dynamics and amazing interior comfort and quietness.

    And now Nissan is tapping into Star Wars fans with a Rogue One Limited Edition. It is the first production vehicle to include Star Wars-branded elements via an exclusive relationship with Lucasfilms.

    Nissan is only building 5,400 special edition units and they will be available as 2017 models.

    And scene. Coolest display at the @laautoshow. We can all go home now. #laautoshow
