The 2007 Dodge Nitro is an all new medium size SUV.Dodge updated the full-estimate Durango in 2004, and from that point forward has been arranging the Nitro, which is 22 inches shorter.There are numerous fair size SUVs out there, and Dodge needed the Nitro to be unmistakable, so as to keep up its notoriety for striking styling.The result is an exceptionally squared-off vehicle, with overstated bumper flares.
The Nitro looks and feels bigger than its size, with a high seating position that SUV proprietors like, and great lodge space.It highlights Load “n” Go, a payload stockpiling framework whereby the back seats and front traveler seat crease absolutely level in seconds; also, the freight floor slides rearward out over the back guard, and can hold 400 pounds, making the stacking of substantial questions much easier.It could avert back wounds.
The Nitro comes in either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, with a decision of V6 motors, one old and one new.The new 4.0-liter V6 is superior to the old 3.7-liter, with 50 more torque and efficiency that is one and only or two miles for each gallon less.However the 4.0-liter motor just comes in the highest point of-the-line R/T model, which costs about $2700 more than the most prominent SLT.But a five-speed programmed additionally accompanies the R/T, and that transmission, as well, is superior to the standard four-speed in the SLT.The R/T has a more agreeable ride, too.
The 2007 Dodge Nitro comes as three models, each with a decision of two-wheel drive (2WD) or four-wheel drive (4WD).
re are three models of the new 2007 Dodge Nitro, the SXT in 2WD, $20,735 with low maintenance 4WD), SLT ($22,635 and $24,145) and R/T and with full-time 4WD); all costs in addition to $660 destination.
The SXT ($19,225) accompanies a 210-hp 3.7-liter V6 and a decision of six-rate manual transmission or four-speed programmed ($1000). The 4WD model ($20,735) utilizes low maintenance four-wheel-drive framework. Standard gear incorporates fabric upholstery, aerating and cooling, remote passage with force windows and entryway locks, 115-volt electrical plug, level collapsing front traveler seat, 60/40 collapsing back seat, AM/FM/CD with MP3 and six speakers, tilt controlling section, footing control and brake help, slate-hued formed front and back sashes and bumper flares, collapsing power mirrors, back window washer/wiper, and 16-inch steel wheels.
The SLT ($22,635) and SLT 4WD ($24,145) come standard with the programmed. The SLT includes stain-safe material seats, power six-way customizable driver’s seat, cowhide wrapped controlling wheel with sound controls, Load ‘n Go freight stockpiling framework with secure rails, overhead support, voyage control, warmed mirrors, compass, auto-darkening rearview mirror, vehicle data instrumentation, tinted windows, body-shaded front and back sashes and bumper flares, and 17-inch aluminum wheels.
The R/T ($25,310) highlights another 4.0-liter V6 making 260 pull, mated to a five-speed programmed. The R/T 4WD model ($26,970) has a full-time four-wheel-drive framework. The R/T accompanies a games suspension with 20-inch haggles Eagle tires. The R/T is prepared like the SLT, however it additionally has Sirius Satellite Radio.
Alternatives for each of the three models incorporate a force sunroof, foglamps, motor piece radiator, full-estimate save tire, and trailer tow bundle. Full-time 4WD is an alternative on the low maintenance 4WD SXT and SLT models. Alternatives for the SLT and R/T incorporate calfskin upholstery, route framework, remote begin, sans hands telephone, AM/FM/6CD/CD/DVD/MP3 sound framework with eight speakers in addition to subwoofer. The discretionary MyGIG Multimedia Infotainment System highlights route, sound, stimulation and correspondence wrapped into one, alongside voice charge and a 20-gigabyte hard drive to store music and photographs.
The controlling wheel is a nice looking four-talked, with a major focus center and thick spokes at 9:00 and 3:00 o’clock, littler spokes at 5 and 7; the information focus catches are under your thumb on the enormous spokes. There are three major primary instruments: speedo in focus, tach on right and fuel and temp on left. They’re attractive and particularly clear, with the computerized data still noticeable in the sun in light of the fact that the three units are astutely covered. Chrysler does gages right, and for the most part destroys GM with regards to nice looking style and capacity.
There’s great front seat legroom, and it feels like there’s much more on the grounds that the dashboard is slender, making the lodge feel not at all like that in a minivan. The dash likewise has an addition over the middle stack, around 6 by 9 inches with grippy elastic at the base, and it’s ideal for, well, things. The glovebox is the full width of the traveler side.
Rearview perceivability is great, with only windows back there, no endeavor at swoopy styling with sheetmetal. Furthermore, once more, in light of the fact that the front bumpers have no ascent or genuine shape, it’s anything but difficult to see the front corners of the vehicle, making stopping an alleviation contrasted with numerous vehicles this size.
The square topic proceeds with the inside stack and its instruments and catches for the sound framework and atmosphere control, albeit these days numerous autos resemble that, which isn’t awful, just verging on characteristic. Everything is perfect, simple to work, and straightforward. We particularly like the entryway handles, a smart ergonomic configuration: they’re similar to a half circle, and you just slip three or four fingers of the hand against the entryway inside the handle, fingers confronting forward so there’s no spot of the wrist, and draw.
Between the seats, alongside the gearshift, exchange case, and crisis brake lever, there are two settled cupholders and a little break for change. There’s a shallow plate in the highest point of the inside console stockpiling container, and a profound compartment under that; as one woman on the press dispatch said, it’s sufficiently enormous to stash her feline, on street trips.
In any case, the Nitro truly adapts to present circumstances behind the front seat. The Load ‘n Go work rapidly and effectively slumps the 60/40 back seats and front traveler situate absolutely level. With the liftgate raised, the covered (launderable vinyl on the SXT) payload floor slides rearward 18 inches, out over the guard, sparing a loader’s back. It can hold 400 pounds.
Under portion of the load floor there’s a four-inch-profound compartment that can store things, for example, jumper links and apparatuses, or shroud a tablet.
For the recent years, Dodge has been buckling down on making their SUVs calm, and the Nitro succeeds. The 3.7-liter motor is somewhat brutal sounding, however the Nitro’s sound-stifling material suppresses it well.
At long last, the cooling may be fine on a typical hot day, yet it appeared to be minor for burning conditions. We drove from San Diego to Palm Springs on a September day, and when we arrived it was 104 degrees. The AC was going to the max, and it wasn’t doing the occupation. The fan was blowing solid, however the air leaving the vents wasn’t sufficiently icy to cool the lodge.
