In general, when you modify a car to make tons of horsepower, you want to beef up the drivetrain. You know, so you don’t leave shredded gears and oil all over the road after a launch. But Nissan technician Matthew Parris from Massachusetts is going to risk it by shoving 500 ponies through a standard Juke SL’s CVT…
Nissan issued a press release explaining their crossover testing methods, and all I can say is that the Juke is tougher than me. Or you.
Here’s Terry Grant talking us through his adventures up the hill on two wheels in Nissan Juke in two minutes and ten seconds. It wasn’t easy, that’s for sure.
As far as records go, this has got to be one of the most... pointless. But good gravy it’s amazing to watch!
Two minutes and 10 seconds, to be specific, shattering the old record by a wide margin. It’s amazing what you can do with a Nissan Juke RS Nismo if your name is Terry Grant.
Back in 2011, several HEROES at Nissan got the crazy idea to take the baby 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder engine out of the Juke mini-crossover and swap in the engine and gearbox from the mighty GT-R. The result was the Juke-R, a 545 horsepower ball of crazy. Now the Juke-R is back with even more power. Hooray!
The Nissan Juke Nismo still looks futuristic to the point of wackiness, even if the design has been with us for a few years now. Throw some snow treads on there and it goes from cool to ice cold, baby!
I did a massive spit-take all over the back of the journalist in front of me when I saw this one. Nissan's making a Juke that's in what I always considered to be my own, personal livery? I asked the spit-upon journalist to pinch me to see if I was dreaming, but the dude just slapped me.
The most frustrating aspect of what we do as auto writers is the boilerplate response we get from car companies when we ask about future cars. That wasn't the case with Infiniti CEO Johan De Nysschen, who essentially had this to say about the rumored Infiniti version of the Juke: "Hell yeah, it's ours, and it's going…
A few months ago we heard that Infiniti was planning to offer their own version of the popular children's cartoon character/car known as the Nissan Juke in China. Now a few teaser images have popped up that lend some credence to that rumor. Is this it? And if so... why?
Sure, the Nissan Juke looks... unconventional, I guess you could say. But it gets a pass because it's actually a lot amount of fun to drive. Now there's evidence that luxury brand Infiniti might be trying to get in on that sweet Juke action. In China!
When I tried out Ford's new tiny 3-cylinder engine, they'd helpfully packaged it into a car. And that car was a very nice, just-refreshed 2015 Fiesta. Until I saw the wheels. Over the honest, pure steel wheels, Ford had slapped some plastic picnic plates meant to look like alloy wheels or something. Aren't we done…
Much to our relief, the 2015 Nissan Juke didn't suddenly get normal-looking. That's a rare thing at Nissan these days. But it turns out they want to keep the Juke as the odd crossover out.
Nissan announced an upcoming face-and-asslift for the Juke, and I'm not going to lie, I'm nervous. Unusual looking cars tend to be endangered species; when a car that manages to be unique gets a little bit of controversy or blowback, the first facelift usually spells doom for what made the car cool. I hope Nissan has…
The defining characteristic of the Nissan Juke has been its insane face. Some love it, some hate it, but the great thing about the Juke's styling is that you can form an opinion about it. That's rare among crossovers. Will Nissan screw it up with the 2015 Juke?
A nice plus of all the snow falling the other day was that mother nature finally made the Juke cute.
Here in America, the Nissan Juke is a great little mini-crossover that overcomes its awkward looks by being genuinely fun to drive. But in Mexico, the Juke is something else entirely: a crime-fighting, time traveling, tire smoking, glass destroying LEGEND.

The Nissan Juke-R is the company's tiny little Juke crossover stuffed with the powerful guts of the Nissan GT-R — one of the fastest cars on the planet. Here's the story of how a bunch of lunatic Nissan engineers quietly and secretly built the most audacious production car in a generation without anyone finding out.
