General Manager Ken Wilkins invites you to drop by Bob Moore Nissan of Tulsa to get reacquainted and introduced to the quality 2011 Nissan product offerings.
“I feel like I’m home again,” says Ken Wilkins, general manager of Bob Moore Nissan of Tulsa. Ken was born in Antlers, Oklahoma and has spent 28 years in the automobile business. His first auto-related job was in 1982 with Bob Howard Pontiac GMC in Edmond. He later moved to Tulsa for Howard, where he was assigned responsibilities for acquisitions and building business in the Tulsa metropolitan area. At that time Wilkins became general manager of South Pointe Chevrolet in Tulsa, where he remained for 10 years before being transferred by Group One Automotive to operate a Toyota store in Houston.
Bob Moore bought Riverside Nissan in June of last year and changed the name to Bob Moore Nissan of Tulsa. Wilkins has been back in Tulsa with Bob Moore Nissan since November of 2010. “I’ve always placed the highest value on customer relationships,” says Wilkins, “and plan to instill customer confidence at the highest level possible here at Bob Moore Nissan.” Wilkins adds that the Nissan dealership will maintain an aggressive pricing approach as part of their overall strategy, build upon their superior customer service department, and maintain a significant inventory of both new Nissan vehicles and pre-owned brands, domestic and import models. “Future plans include expanding business in Tulsa through future acquisitions,” added Wilkins.
Mr. Wilkins extends an invitation to all his previous friends and customers in the Tulsa area to stop in at Bob Moore Nissan to say hello and get reacquainted. And while you’re there, he would love to show you around the dealership and introduce you to the new 2011 Nissan product offerings.
Some of the products you’ll want to check out include the 2011 Nissan Altima, the new Juke, and the great lineup of Nissan full-sized and mid-sized trucks. The Altima is available in both Sedan and Coupe models, with lots of standard features and style packages. It is available in two engine options: a 175-Hp, 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder or a 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers a whopping 270 Hp while still achieving 27 highway miles per gallon. The 2.5-liter engine gets an exceptional 32-highway mile per gallon highway rating. Nissan’s virtually gearless intelligent CVT transmission is described as providing unparalleled response and smoothness. Add to that a touch-screen navigation system with live traffic reporting to keep you on schedule and on the right road. Both the Altima Sedan and Coupe offer lots of exciting options for staying ahead of the game in our fast-paced world.
We’ve all seen advertising for the newly introduced Nissan Juke Crossover. This sporty little vehicle is a feisty hatchback model with lively performance, sporty handling, comfortable seats, and available all-wheel-drive. Many features—generally available as options—are standard on the Juke.
The Titan is a full-sized pickup with up to 9,500 pounds towing capacity, while the Frontier is a mid-sized truck with up to 6,500 pounds towing capacity. Both have multiple design packages with lots of features and benefits for those who prefer driving trucks.
“I’m really excited about coming back to Tulsa because it is home,” explains Wilkins. Make it a point to stop by Bob Moore Nissan of Tulsa and say hello to General Manager Ken Wilkins and his staff. They’re located at 31st and Memorial, south of I-44, just next door to Jim Glover Chevrolet.
