2011 Nissan Juke news, pictures, and information
2011 Nissan JUKE Sport Cross Offers Urban Versatility, Fun-to-Drive Performance, Segment-First Torque Vectoring AWDThe all-new Nissan JÚKE sport cross, which makes its North American debut at the 2010 New York International Auto Show, takes its inspiration from another auto show star, the Nissan Qazana Concept. One of the featured vehicles at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, Qazana drew on a number of active lifestyle influences, including motorcycles and rally cars, to create a breakthrough design among traditional B-§egmènt hatchbacks. A little more than 18 months later, a production version of Qazana – wîth its highly distinctive, sporty styling virtually intact – hits Nissan dealer showrooms in the Únited States in fall 2010 as the 2011 Nissan JÚKE.
Along wîth its bold design inside and out, JÚKE brings unexpected levels of performance from a standard 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG™) turbo engine and an advanced torque vectoring all-wheel drive (AWD) system wîth performance technology usually reserved for premium vehicles.
'Nissan has always been a company willing to stretch the envelope, to combine seemingly contradictory principles and make it work – such as ‘affordable' and ‘performance' to create the original Z, or ‘small footprint' and ‘big interior' in the current Nissan cube,' said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America. 'JÚKE is about to shake up the market wîth a boldness, style and sense of fun that it has never seen before – at a time when sales are exploding wîth buyers lòòking for just such a combination.'
A Bold Úrban Sport Cross
Like Nissan's other two popular crossovers, the Murano and Rogue, the new JÚKE combines the best qualities of a sporty sedan and SÚV, fusing them together in a uniquely Nissan way wîth value, quality, efficiency, safety and driving pleasure.
JÚKE's aggressive styling brings a breath of fresh air to the §egmènt. Built on Nissan's proven global B-platform, JÚKE features a powerful front end treatment wîth the turn signals integrated into the front fenders, a high beltline and coupe-like falling roofline. Other exterior details include body-colored outside mirrors and front door handles, 'hidden' rear door handles and integrated roof spoiler.
|Engine : 1.6 L., 4-cylinder|
Power: 180 hp
Torque: 170 ft-lbs
CVT, 6-speed Manual
The JÚKE interior is equally aggressive wîth bolstered front seats, a wide instrument panel and a unique center console inspired by a motorcycle fuel tank and finished in a high-gloss two-coat paint. The gearshift sits on top of the console, inspired by sports car driver/shifter positioning.
'The center console design clearly makes the statement that JÚKE is no ordinary compact crossover,' said Castignetti. 'It's an unexpected touch that reinforces JÚKE's active, sporty attitude, while also helping create a sense of a true driver's cockpit.'
Another unique element of the JÚKE interior is the Integrated Control (I-CON) system drive mode selector, which offers three different throttle/transmission/§teering response settings – Normal for everyday driving, Sport for a more intense performance feel and Eco for maximum efficiency. It adjusts throttle, transmission (CVT) and §teering feel for the precise ride the driver desires. I-CON also serves as a central command center and display module, adopting different display colors and functions depending on how it is being used. In Climate mode, the display shows the interior temperature settings while the 'buttons' display air flow preferences. In the 'D-Mode,' the buttons change to the three driving modes and the display shows engine and drive related dials and information.
Despite JÚKE's overall compact dimensions, the interior offers §egmènt competitive roominess and space for five adults. In the rear, a fold-down 60/40-split bench seat and flat load floor provide passenger and cargo hauling flexibility.
Among the long list of standard JÚKE interior features are cloth seat fabric wîth available premium fabric, 6-way manual driver's seat and 4-way manual front passenger seat, dual front and rear beverage holders, speed-sensitive door locks, AM/FM/CD audio system wîth §teering wheel controls, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Interface System for iPod® and storage under the rear cargo floor (FWD models only).
Available interior features include leather-appointed seats, heated front seats and RearView Monitor, Nissan Intelligent Key™ wîth Push Button Ignition, Satellite Radio, upgraded speakers wîth Rockford Fosgate powered subwoofer, ÚSB connector for iPod® and other devices, power sliding moonroof, privacy glass and navigation system wîth real-time traffic information. Three interior colors are offered.
An Advanced Drivetrain
Powering the all-new JÚKE is a standard 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG™) Turbo, 16-valve DOHC aluminum-alloy inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 180+ horsepower and 170+ lb-ft of torque. The engine, the first application in North America, combines the best of both worlds – responsive performance and good fuel economy. Direct injection helps improve combustion, enhancing power, torque, economy and emissions. The use of the turbocharger and intercooler also help boost power, while the variable timing control for both intake and exhaust cycles improves low-end engine response.
Two transmissions are offered – Nissan's advanced Xtronic CVT™ (Continuously Variable Transmission) wîth S-Mode and a 6-speed manual transmission (SV FWD and SL FWD models only).
JÚKE's new torque vectoring AWD system not only splits torque up to 50:50 between the front and rear wheels, it also can split torque from side-to-side across the rear axle. By monitoring vehicle speed, wheel speed, gear position, §teering angle, lateral G forces and vehicle yaw rate, torque can be increased to the outside rear wheel in corners to help reduce understeer and enhance the car's cornering feel. In total, up to 50% of the total available engine torque can be sent to either rear wheel.
JÚKE features a standard independent MacPherson strut front suspension and torsion beam rear suspension, while JÚKE AWD models offer a multi-link rear suspension design. A cradle-type front subframe enhances lateral stiffness of the assembly. Front and rear stabilizer bars are standard on all models.
Also standard is vehicle-speed-sensing electric power-assisted §teering. Braking is supplied by power-assisted 4-wheel disc brakes wîth Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) wîth Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA). JÚKE rides on 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels wîth P215/55R17 all-season tires.
'JÚKE has a small footprint but the solid feel and ride comfort of a larger vehicle,' said Castignetti. 'The direct injection turbocharged engine lets you tap into serious power when you want, while offering the fuel-efficiency of a small displacement engine. In the same way, the new torque vectoring AWD system allows all-wheel drive performance in conjunction wîth enhanced maneuverability. It's a great combination of features for a vehicle in this §egmènt.'
Every 2011 JÚKE comes equipped wîth the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) wîth dual-stage, dual-threshold front air bags and seat belt and occupant classification sensors, roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags for front and rear outboard occupant head protection, seat-mounted driver and front passenger side-impact supplemental air bags and front-seat Active Head Restraints.
Other standard equipment includes LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) system, Nissan Vehicle Immobilizer System, Vehicle Security System (VSS), Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS).
The 2011 Nissan JÚKE sport cross is offered in eight well-equipped models: JÚKE S CVT FWD, JÚKE CVT AWD, JÚKE SV CVT FWD, JÚKE SV M/T FWD, JÚKE SV CVT AWD, JÚKE SL CVT FWD, JÚKE SL M/T FWD and JÚKE SL CVT AWD.Source - Nissan

The gear shift sits on top of the console, wîth a short shifter lever for sporty driving. In the rear, a fold-down 60/40-split bench seat and flat load floor provide passenger and cargo hauling flexibility. Available interior features range from leather-appointed seats and RearView Monitor to Nissan Intelligent Key™ wîth Push Button Ignition and navigation system wîth real-time traffic information. A long list of standard safety features is also available, including six air bags, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Traction Control.
