Nissan Juke pictures

Nissan’s all-new 2011 Nissan Juke crossover vehicle is expected to hit show floors in October. The dramatically styled Juke features a 1.6-liter direct injection gasoline (DIG) turbo, 16-valve inline 4-cylinder engine that puts out more than 180 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. The Juke’s all-wheel drive offers torque vectoring, which can split torque up to 50:50 between the front and rear wheels, or side-by-side across the rear axle. When corning, the torque vectoring AWD system helps reduce understeer and enhances the Juke’s corning experience. The Juke’s unique styling was derived from the Nissan Qazana concept, and  number of other influences including motorcycles and rally cars. The Juke will start at a base price of $18,960, and will be available starting next month (October 2010).
