Dodge Nitro: Your Compact SUV
Dodge Nitro is a CU released in the year 2007 by the Dodge division of Chrysler. It shared its platform with the 2nd generation Jeep Liberty. It had got uni-body design with big wheels, high waistline, and belligerently flared fenders. Handling of Nitro is decent, but it kinda’ disappoints those who expect plush interiors loaded with modern amenities. Cargo space was decent when compared with other SUVs across the range.
2011 Dodge Nitro was offered in3 trim levels: Detonator, Shock, and Heat. The 4x4 and 4x2 versions are available in either detonator, heator shock trim levels. You can see a 3.7 L V6 engine teamed to a 4-speed auto transmission. You can also see an optional 260-horsepower 4.0-L V6 engine coupled to a 5-speed auto transmission.
For the year 2011, you can see a new Heat 4.0 lifestyle package added to all the trim levels. The Heat 4.0 package comes with a standard 5-speed auto transmission, upgraded 8-speaker sound system, and an Uconnect Phone. Bluetooth connectivity was a part of standard offering in all the later models.
Few selected models come with upgraded interiors. All the models of these 3 trim levels come in 9 different exterior colors, which also include Blackberry Pearl Coat, Bright White Clear Coat, Redline Two Coat Pearl, and Toxic Orange Pearl Coat.
