2013 Nissan Juke Midnight Edition Coming Soon

Nissan Juke Midnight Edition

Since its introduction two years ago, the Nissan Juke has certainly gotten noticed. With its eye-catching design and dynamic performance, the Juke is hard to ignore. However, Nissan is giving the Juke a more stealth appearance with the new Midnight Edition accessory package available on the 2013 model lineup.

Now in its third year of production, the Nissan Juke continues to offer something different for those drivers seeking a head-turner on the road. Upgrades to the 2013 Juke include a RearView Monitor with the Navigation Package, a revised audio system, and the addition of three new exterior colors: Atomic Gold, Brilliant Silver, and Pearl White. The Midnight Edition features Sapphire Black mirror caps, a Sapphire Black rear spoiler, and unique 17” Black Wheels.

“The Midnight Edition JUKE stands out by its subtlety,” said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc. “The combination of black-on-black-on-black wheels, spoiler and mirrors gives JUKE a dramatic new look, which we think enhances its already bold styling. We expect it to be a very popular addition to the JUKE lineup for 2013.”

Nissan dealerships nationwide will begin receiving the 2013 Juke Midnight Edition in September. Watch for the 2013 Juke to arrive soon at James Ceranti Nissan,

Redesigned 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Coming to Dealerships this Fall

Nissan PathfinderWith an array of amenities and best-in-class fuel economy, the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is the next-generation SUV. The all-new Pathfinder will be arriving at our dealership this fall.

The all-new aerodynamic style of the 2013 Pathfinder’s exterior helped the vehicle shed 500 pounds of mass. Even with this change, the Pathfinder still provides the most interior passenger volume, front headroom, and legroom in its class. The lighter weight also helped improve fuel economy as the 2013 Pathfinder has 30 percent better fuel economy as compared to the 2012 Pathfinder. The FWD version has fuel economy estimations of 20 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined. The 4WD version gets 19 mpg city, 25 mpg highway, and 21 mpg combined.

“It’s no secret that the industry has shifted as gas prices have increased,” says Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc. “But while traditional SUV customers are looking for improved fuel economy, they still demand a vehicle that can do all the things they need, like carrying seven people, towing, and providing the surefootedness in all conditions of a four-wheel drive.”

The 2013 Pathfinder can do all that and more, and it will be making its way to James Ceranti Nissan this fall. For more information, visit us online at
