2008 Dodge Nitro

In its second year of production, the Dodge Nitro midsize SUV stayed pretty much the same.  The boxy SUV with the name that sounds like an American Gladiator features a choice between a 3.7 L, 210 hp V6 powertrain and a 4.0 L, 260 hp V6.  The Nitro comes in 6 trims.

All 6 trims have 4 doors and seat 5.  Think of the R/T trim as the highest quality trim with its standard 5 speed automatic transmission.  Max towing capacity generally comes out to around 5000 lbs.

So what do reviewers have to say?  Overall, they like the Nitro's unique look, smooth ride, and family-friendly design.  As domestic SUV's go, the 2008 Dodge Nitro should continue the strong tradition that its predecessors have established.
