2014 Nissan Juke and Juke Nismo Priced
Nissan has announced pricing on the 2014 Nissan Juke subcompact crossover, with a starting price of $19,900, including $810 for destination and handling. The Juke is available in four different models, including the recently-introduced Nismo model. Three packages are available, as well as a full list of optional features. The 2014 Nissan Juke is available with two different custom packages, including the Midnight Edition and Sport Package. The first features 17-inch black wheels, Sapphire Black rear roof spoiler and mirror caps, as well as privacy glass. The second package includes 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and a stainless steel exhaust tip. Two new paint colors have been added for the new model year, Red Alert and Bordeaux Black. The Juke Nismo, which was introduced in the 2013 model year, is available with either front-wheel drive mated to a six-speed manual transmission, or all-wheel drive with a Nismo-tuned CVT transmission. All Juke models, both Nismo and non-Nismo, are powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine that produce 188 and 197 horsepower, respectively. We enjoyed the engine in the Nissan Juke we drove, but felt the non-Nismo model suffered from some turbo lag, limited initial power. Available features include leather seats, keyless entry and ignition, rearview monitor, Fockford Fosgate ecoPUNCH audio system, and navigation with real-time traffic. Pricing for the 2014 Nissan Juke starts at $19,900 and tops out at $26,900, including the $810 destination charge. Both the Juke and Juke Nismo models are on sale now at dealerships nationwide.
