2011 Dodge Nitro Detonator 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

The Nitro's appearance creates a response much like the Dodge Ram pickup when it first came out: You either LOVE it or HATE it. I happened to embrace the rugged square "jaw" of the Nitro and having had some driving experience with the original 2007 RT version which featured a very energetic 4.0 liter engine (vs. the horribly anemic 3.7 liter that's found in the Jeep), I was pleasantly impressed. This rugged yet refined truck-like SUV conquers most snowy roads that I've experienced in Michigan, plus affords a reasonable cost to drive based on 20mpg in mixed city/freeway driving. Lots of storage and creature comforts too. Could have used more than 2 cup holders in front though.

Best Features

4.0 engine performance and gas mileage Tons of interior room for hauling Nicely appointed dash 20" tires/wheels Shape, length and width Easy to drive Great Vision

Worst Features

More cupholders Power driver seat in all trim levels Auto Trans stick is awkward to move
