The 2008 Dodge Nitro, which is closely related to the Jeep Liberty, appeals to buyers based on its aggressive and unique styling and flexible interior. And especially with the new standard trailer sway control system, it's going to be one of the best compact SUVs for towing.
The Dodge Nitro, introduced in 2007, enters its second model year with only a few minor changes. The sporty R/T model gets new two-tone seats, with inserts in a choice of Inferno Red, Electric Blue, or Sunburst Orange. A newly available SXT C Package brings a body-color fascia, fender flares, and body side molding. Also, major options are brought together into several packages, called the Travel Group, Convenience Group, and Premium Sound Package.
Dodge's Nitro comes in three different models for 2008--base SXT, mid-range SLT, and the sporty R/T. The SXT and SLT have a 3.7L V6 engine making 210 horsepower and 235 pound-feet of torque, while the R/T model has a 4.0L overhead-cam V6 making 260 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. With the 3.7L engine, a six-speed manual is standard with a four-speed automatic optional; a five-speed automatic is the only transmission offered with the 4.0L, though it has Electronic Range Select shift control.
