The 2011 Nitro picture released by Chrysler looks to be the same as the 2010 "Spring" edition. Time will tell if there are any additional changes and we will report them here.

Dodge Nitro Gets 2011 MY Updates

STORY HIGHLIGHTS:


* New equipment level: Heat 4.0 Lifestyle Package
* All models get standard 20 inch rims
* Range of exterior colors now offers more choices


Quote:
At the beginning of the current year, Dodge refreshed the Nitro range, renaming the three versions available into Heat, Detonator and Shock. The first is the entry level model, while the last is the range-topper, leaving the Detonator as the middle-of-the pack-choice.

Now, the Dodge Nitro has received a new trim level, as well as a few equipment updates for certain grades, as part of the 2011 model year changes.

The Heat, Detonator and Shock equipment levels are now accompanied by the Heat 4.0 Lifestyle Package. This uses a 4.0 liter V6 powerplant delivering 260 hp and a maximum torque of 25 lb-ft (359 Nm) and is mated to a five speed manual gearbox. It comes with the equipment list of the Heat grade, adding Uconnect Phone and a premium sound system that uses eight speakers to deliver a top quality audio experience.

All Nitro models belonging to the 2011 model year will get standard 20 inch alloy rims, as well as a monochromatic finish for the interior. Certain models will receive new materials for the interior, as well as a special leather finish that comes with contrasting stitching. The range of exterior colors has also been upgraded. This now includes Bright White Clear Coat, Blackberry Pearl Coat, Toxic Orange Pearl Coat and Redline Two Coat.

In addition to that, the Detonator and Shock versions now come with racing stripes on the hood and front fenders. These are Dodge’s new signature and offer the vehicles a more distinct look, also giving them a sporty aura.

They have issued some press releases on other 2011 models and I posted them, but so far nothing on the new Nitro. Never have understood why they can't be the same as the US since they are all built here, but they (thus far) are NOT the same. Check back and when I find some info will post it, if they issue a press release. Sorry

Dodge Nitro Canada 2011

Hi Rick,

Just got off the phone with Chrysler Canada regarding the 2011 Dodge Nitros,
the girl was most helpful but unfortunately did not have much information.

She tried to find out and was able to tell me that there would be Sxt model with 20 inch wheels and a 4 litre engine. three body colors, bright white - blackberry and cherry red but no orange.

I asked her if I crossed the border to purchase a Nitro there and imported it to Canada would the warranty apply and she said she does not work with warranties but her understanding was that the warranty would not be valid in Canada.

So there we have it, I guess I just have to be patient and see what becomes available. Thanks Rick.

Ian2.

Thanks for your info and I too found this same info from Canada "Online" concerning the 2011 Nitro, but thought it was just 2010 specks updated. Since here in the US the SXT and the 3.7 engine is no longer available it is still shown as options in Canada for 2011. Question is Why? Good Luck and thanks again for for sharing.

As of TODAY the Canada's 2011 NITRO Site is up and just like in 2010 the only model available is the SXT. It does show the new 2011 exterior colors and you can add them on to view! Lots of info that you may already know, however.
