The Dodge Nitro is a compact SUV that started production back in 2006 as a 2007 model. The Nitro shares a platform with the second generation Jeep Liberty, but is lower, longer, and wider. The great thing about the Nitro is that it has a big cargo hold that is larger thanks to the squared off shape of the exterior of the vehicle.
The Nitro comes in two trim levels: the SE and SXT. These trims are offered with premium clothed trimmed seats or available leather trimmed seats in the SXT, six speakers, and standard front row active head restraints. Power comes from either a 3.7L V6 producing 210 HP and 235 lb-ft of torque or a 4.0L V6 delivering 260 HP and 265 lb-ft of torque.
