My wife wanted a Jeep so I test drove everything they had and bought the Nitro instead, The reason I gave this such a good rating is based on its price compared to everything else in its category. It is not the fastest nor most powerful thing I test drove but it was 7000 less than the next competitor and had much better performance per dollar and was so much more fun to drive than the super soft inadequate feeling suspension on the grandma grocery getter Jeeps I drove.
Bang for the buck. For its price it is a much better buy than anything else and it looks so much better than other SUV's. I would have got it for looks alone if I had to buy an SUV
Available SRT6 model with the Supercharged V6 and a higher final drive ratio for better MPG, But for its small price tag it is just fine with a naturally aspirated V6
