Dodge NITRO

I know they are a brand new vehicle for 2007 but has anybody got any info or feedback on this vehicle? Looked at one today (for work) and that thing looks pretty good, drives well and has decent power and 4x4. The one I looked at today was $23,200 MSRP it was a base model though. But for what it is it did not seem to be a bad SUV.
Dodge - Nitro - Midsize SUV - Sports Utility vehicle


I have looked at the Trailblazer IMO that is a minivan in hiding and a POS. The interior looked cheap and the truck handled like a log truck with the body roll of a top heavy van.

The ford explorer is a decent vehicle but is way overpriced. $25,000 base model.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: Dodge NITRO

I think it looks pretty cool for a box. I love the front end too.

It is a Jeep Liberty though.


Hmmm, I wonder what it would look like with a lift and 37" tires???


Sadly I saw one of these on the road and in the 2wd platform it reminds me of a Ford Escape. (That's scary in it's own right)

Re: Dodge NITRO

I kind of like the styling of them. Looked at an SXT on the lot tonight but couldn't really tell too much about it since it wasn't under any direct lighting. I may go back and check it out tomorrow.

Re: Dodge NITRO

I just rented one while my new dodge magnum was getting detailed after having ****ing cement poured on it!

It isn't a bad ride just test out the seats to your liking. they have this hard plastic support on the side that tended to hurt my thigh when getting out. i Did like the power it is alot faster than the magnum i have (2.7L). If you turn up the base the cheap plasitc interior rattals a bit, its got a blind spot at the rear pillar on both sides, Plastic fantastic, when doing a hard u-turn it almost stalled on me once, drives up curbs really easily (rental), butt ugly but better than the saturn they tried to give me. From the size of the thing you'd think you could pack a ton it it but you can't for some reason.

I personaly didn't really care for the nitro, but i may be biased that i like a nice mellow riding car. It is based off the Jeep liberty by the way.

Aliens general, everything about them is alien!

Before I saw any commercial and knew what it was, I drove past one on a local dealer's lot. After cursing Jeep for what I thought was yet another let down (Compass, Commander, not producing the Gladiator, putting the Caravan engine in the new Wrangler) for the rest of the afternoon, I saw the commercial.

All I can say is at least it's not the next in currently depressing Jeep lineup.

I went and got a closer look and it's even uglier when you give it time to grow on you.
