Having just received its world premiere at the Geneva Auto Show, Nissan announced the Juke will be sold in the U.S. and will give the crossover a North American unveiling at a private event just ahead of the NY Auto Show.

Slotting in just underneath the Rogue in Nissan’s lineup, we’re excited to see if the European model’s GTDI (gasoline turbocharged direct injection) 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine, which makes 188-hp and 177 ft-lbs of torque. We’re also interested to see what sort of design changes might be made to the admittedly odd looking ute.

Set to go on sale later this year, pricing has not yet been release yet, but we expect a sub $20,000 entry-level value, considering the price of the Rogue.

We’ll be sure to bring you full details and plenty of live photos on March 31st, on the eve of the NY Auto Show.

    Nissan Joke. I know that’s an easy jab, but c’mon Nissan, really? First the Cube and now this clusterfudge of design. I’ve owned many a Datsun and Nissan in my lifetime. My last one was a 2002 Maxima though. Blech!

    I love it and it’s stands out in design from any other car!
    Hope the price is right and the MPG is great!! A winner for the small car segement. I love a hatch with unique design and a taller bulkier stance!! Turbo engine to boot! It rocks!

    This car rocks the small hatchback car segment with it’s design, turbo engine, taller and bulkier stance and options!! Great car…looking forward to getting rid of my cheap, junky Chevy HHR!
