With how incredible the 2015 Nissan JUKE is, we cannot wait to see the 2017 Nissan JUKE!

The Nissan JUKE is one of the most uniquely styled crossovers on the market and the small crossover is about to inspire disbelief yet again. The first generation Nissan JUKE kicked off Nissan’s crossover sales and now, with the second generation on the way, it’s looking for a new way to beat the competition. The latest rumor on the mill is that the 2017 Nissan JUKE will receive an even greener powertrain.

The Japanese automaker is keeping their lips sealed but a green powertrain certainly isn’t unlikely. The Nissan LEAF®, the most popular electric vehicle in the world, boasts a battery pack and electric motor that could power the Nissan JUKE.

The Nissan JUKE currently stands on its own tires with a 1.6L turbocharged engine that packs 217 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. The Nissan LEAF®’s powertrain is comparable with 107 hp and 187 lb-ft of torque. Either way, the 2017 Nissan JUKE will likely have a variety of engines to choose from.

Still, Nissan is a tricky automaker to decipher. For now, they seem to be keeping everything to themselves when it comes to the second generation Nissan JUKE.

We here at Lancaster Nissan of Lancaster, PA can’t wait to see just what the Nissan JUKE has in store for us!

Incredible Origami Nissan Juke Created to Honor 5th Anniversary

This may come as a surprise, but the powerful, fuel-efficient Nissan Juke subcompact crossover recently passed its five-year anniversary, and one artist wanted to celebrate the occasion in style – origami-style.

Owen Gildersleeve created an all-paper Nissan Juke model out of 2,000 pieces of paper, in an effort that took more than 200 hours to complete, as well as a little help from Nissan, of course.

Footage of the impressive Origami Nissan Juke can be viewed on YouTube, thanks to NissanUK’s official channel. The creation is mostly yellow, inspired by the Juke’s Solar Yellow paint option, we have to assume.

Gildersleeve said in regards to the Origami Juke that the many pieces of paper represent all of the hardworking people who have worked together over the years to put together the Nissan Juke, ultimately resulting the stellar vehicle.
