The blocky Dodge Nitro has broad-shouldered styling that is intended to appeal to a macho clientele. A standard 210-bhp 3.7L V-6 is mated to a 4-speed automatic and permanent 4WD. Although Dodge claims that the Nitro is fun to drive, a 0-60 mph time of 9.6 seconds is hardly impressive. No doubt the automatic transmission and 4,115 lb. curb weight hurt performance. Interior features include chrome/red/silver trim, a first-aid kit, an easily cleaned vinyl-covered rear cargo area, and DVD navigation.
For 2010, the Nitro lineup consists of two models: SE and SXT. The revised model lineup adds numerous convenience features.
