2013 Chicago Auto Show: Studs and Duds
2013 Nissan Juke NISMO and the 2014 Nissan 370Z NISMO
Like the 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Core Package, the 2013 Nissan Juke NISMO and the 2014 Nissan 370Z NISMO bowed in Chicago sporting a performance package. However, unlike the Challenger, both the Juke and 370Z NISMO get a small bump in horsepower. The Juke NISMO sees its power increase from 188 hp when compared to the normal trim to 197 hp. As for the 370Z NISMO, power jumps from 332 hp to 375 hp. While both vehicles probably wouldn’t make the cut with a bigger auto show, the reintroduction of NISMO vehicles in North America is good news for fans of Nissan and a big step for the automaker itself.
