Rarely do I get uber excited over a new vehicle before it comes out. I like to see it, hear about it, you know. But… I’ve been reading about this vehicle, and I really can’t wait to see it. I feel as though as strange as I am (or I’ve been told I am), this car would be me. I love Bentley Continentals, Range Rover Sports, Dodge Challengers, etc as much as the next person, but originality does go a long way.



If I were a vehicle, I would be a 2011 Nissan Juke. Okay, the Juke is the new crossover from Nissan. It’s actually smaller than the Rogue, it’s 163 in long, 69.5 in wide, and 61.8 in high. The Engine is 1.6L MR16DDT turbo I4, with only 180 horsepower. Two transmissions are offered – Nissan’s advanced Xtronic CVT™ (Continuously Variable Transmission) with S-Mode and a 6-speed manual transmission (SV FWD and SL FWD models only).

Available features range from leather-appointed seats and RearView Monitor to Nissan Intelligent Key™ with Push Button Ignition, navigation system with real-time traffic information and power sliding moonroof. A long list of standard safety features is also available, including six air bags, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC).



Of course, I would make some changes to it. The color will be, you guessed it, BLACK!!!! Definitely throw some D’s on that…. The wheelbase is 100 inches, so I could probably fit some 20s on it, comfortably. I’m not into hugging the wheel well, rubbing, or cutting things out. Sometimes bigger isn’t always better and the way I drive, I can’t replace rims as often as I get my oil changed. Anyway, I would go towards something like the Asanti AF 143 wheel, basically what I call the “daisy-looking wheel” (I’m such a girl), and if they have a lip on it, even better. But it will be in…. BLACK. The most I would do to the front is chrome out the grill.



I would just leave the rear of the vehicle as is, no blacking out the taillights or anything. As far as the interior goes, I’m not sure as of yet. I just want to see it… then drive it. I know this vehicle will get attention, but I always gotten attention in any vehicle I’ve driven.

This vehicle is not for everyone. Fortunately Bernie isn't everyone. Photos courtesy of NissanJukeNYC.com.
