The Nissan lineup for 2011 will be an impressive one, packed with customer-satisfying vehicles that offer versatility, performance, fuel efficiency and more. Among them: Two of the industries hottest crossovers, the all-new Nissan Juke and the popular Nissan Rogue
The Juke will showcase the driving experience—and exterior design—of a high-performance sports coupe, along with the versatility and presence of an SUV. Providing the motivating force for the bold new Juke is 1.6-liter turbocharged, direct-injection gasoline engine, capable of making 188 hp and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. Mated to Nissan’s Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT), that engine delivers both responsive performance and EPA estimated mileage ratings of 27 mpg city/32 mpg highway. And for an even more dynamic approach to motoring, a six-speed manual transmission will be available on front-wheel-drive (FWD) Jukes in both the S and SL trims. The Juke offers a nice package of performance and economy in a vehicle that doesn’t just blend in, Connecticut Nissan says.
For those who prefer to keep the power flowing to all four wheels, the Juke also is available with an advanced torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive (AWD) system that splits torque evenly between the front and rear wheels, as well as from side-to-side for the back wheels.
The Juke, the world’s first “sport cross” vehicle, is priced as follows:
- Juke S with FWD and CVT: $18,960
- Juke SV with FWD and MT/CVT: $20,260/$20,760
- Juke SL with FWD and MT/CVT: $22,550/$23,050
- Juke S with AWD: $20,460
- Juke SV with AWD and CVT: $22,260
- Juke SL with AWD and CVT: $24,550
The 2011 Nissan Rogue gets a number of updates for the new model year, including new available features like a navigation system, rear-view monitor, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, a USB port for iPods and similar devices, automatic climate control and automatic on/off headlights. In addition, the Rogue S Krom Edition returns again, bringing with it a big-time style upgrade. This rocking Rogue grabs the spotlight with a unique front grille and bumper with fog lights, unique rear fascia, center-exit sport-tuned exhaust, integrated body-colored rear spoiler, body-colored power outside mirrors and new 18-inch brilliant-finish aluminum-alloy wheels. The Rogue is also popular on the pre-owned market, according to Maryland Used Car Dealers
