Nissan brings back the ‘Black Pearl’ name with the 2017 Juke Black Pearl Edition, which will be at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show from November 18 to 27, 2016. The new Juke Black Pearl Edition will be a limited run model with 1,250 units scheduled to be built.
2017 Juke Black Pearl Edition Design:
The Black Pearl, as its name suggests, it takes on a very dark appearance. The paint is black, and the wheels are black, the interior is also black. Cutting through the monotony are several white-painted appointments, including door handles, mirror caps and bumper trim. The center console is also white, as are the air vents and seat inserts.
2017 Juke Black Pearl Edition Features:
Like most Juke models, the Black Pearl is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine producing 188hp and 177 pound-feet of torque. Nissan’s Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) is mandatory on the Black Pearl Edition, although the buyers do get to choose between the front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Nissan also offers sporty Juke NISMO models, but these do not get the Black Pearl treatment.
Standard features include RearView Monitor, Nissan Intelligent Key with the Push Button Ignition, USB connection port for iPod interface and other compatible devices, Bluetooth Hands-free Phone Sys, Streaming audio via Bluetooth, 5.0-inch color display, Siri Eyes Free and Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant2.
2017 Juke Black Pearl Edition Price:
The Black Pearl Edition is based on the Juke SV trim level, which is one step up from the base model. It is a $1,190 option on top of the $22,550 starting price for a 2017 Juke SV with front-wheel drive (all-wheel drive models start at $24,400). Juke Black Pearl production is limited to 1,250 units, including 1,000 for the U.S., and 250 for Canada. That does not necessarily make the Black Pearl a valuable collectible but, if you buy one, you will certainly stand out.
