WOW, did not see these numbers posted for the reduction of options offered on the 2008 Nitro. Would anyone have thought 167,000?

Ford is not alone in its quest to save money and keep things simple, DaimlerChrysler AG's Chrysler Group has also recently announced a similar plan which featured cutting options available on the Dodge Nitro from 167,000 to just 650. They also plan similar reductions on other vehicles.

These drastic changes reflect what we've known for some time now: the American auto manufacturing market is suffering.

Canadian Nitro Review

Nitro more urban warrior than gnarly off-roader
Angela Forgeron
For CanWest News Service


Friday, May 18, 2007


Warning: If you're a new Dodge Nitro enthusiast, stop reading now.

The fact of the matter is I didn't like the looks of it from the first time I spotted one. My guilty pleasure is boxy vehicles -- I adore the optimistic-looking, only-in-the-U.S. Scion xB and the Mercedes-Benz/Dodge Sprinter. But the Nitro, well, it just doesn't rub me the right away.

In all fairness, I'm not the target demographic for the "loaded with adrenaline" Nitro. According to Dodge, the focus is men who, among other passions, have a "man den in the basement or garage" and "women seeking a masculine mid-sized SUV."

The Nitro is being advertised on such TV shows as Desperate Housewives and Crossing Jordan. You'll also see ads in Martha Stewart's Blueprint and on the HGTV website. Curious. I'd categorize my girly girlfriends as the spectators for the above entertainment, and they didn't like the looks of the Nitro either.

Failing to find any fans of the Nitro among my gal pals, I cross-examined my boyfriend, Neil. Though he doesn't have a man den, he'd like one -- living in a condo, however, means we've neither a basement nor a garage. He's also a cool guy's guy, with lots of DeWalt power tools.

"What kind of truck is this? It drives like a Jeep, looks like an SUV, and makes me think it's the evil twin of the Commander and the big dumb brother of the Caliber," says Neil. "I'd say they got inspiration from the Honda Element, but instead of making it cute, they punched it in the face -- and voila!"

Moving inside -- once you get past the retro push-button door handles -- Neil likes the rugged feel "and the interior plastic and rubber seem designed for wear and tear. It's meant to get dirty." At 6-foot-3 -- and with equally long arms -- the guy still found it to be a stretch for the climate controls.

The tall should mind their heads. "Every time I go over a bump, I feel like I'm going to get a lobotomy. And every time I get in or out, I hit my head on the door frame," says Neil. Another point: "For a big truck, it has small windows. God forbid if anyone needs to make an emergency evacuation through them."

There is, however, a ton of legroom behind the front row -- even when the front seat's in a recline position. Seat comfort gets a low score. As a 5-foot-8 driver, I couldn't find the ideal position to grab the wheel and reach the pedals, having to compromise between the two. Though there are some power controls to slide your seat forward or aft, the back position is adjusted manually. I also wouldn't want to sit in either the driver's or passenger's seat for more than a few hours -- there's not much support.

The steering wheel, instrument panel and centre stack -- with audio and climate controls -- are all generic. The bold and aggressive exterior doesn't match the low-key insides. The dash is stunted -- it's so short that it's hard to find a place to display a parking pass.

There's a good amount of cargo space and the innovative, handy Load 'N Go floor -- a platform that holds 182 kilograms of stuff and slides out for easy loading.

From the throaty sound that comes from the exhaust to the acceleration, ride and handling, the Nitro's driving dynamics are positively truck-like.

Though the Nitro isn't my (or Neil's) favourite ride, Dodge gets an ovation for at least focusing its lineup. Over the past decade, its vehicles have moved from hiding under the Chrysler wing to making bold statements. For those who want aggressive styling and fair pricing, Dodge is carving out its own little niche.

awd or 4wd

hey everyone. Im not sure if anyone can be of assistance but i have ordered a nitro sxt as the model is labelled in aus. The dealer said the vehicle is awd now i have read in a few forums that it is in fact 2wd or switched to 4wd high ratio. I know there isnt a huge difference but i would like to know. As far as i am aware the sxt has many of the nitro rt's suspension and running gear. But no one at the dealership can make it any clearer. And help would be greatly appreciated...

The Aust models currently all have 2wd/4wd switch (they are not awd). Your dealer is fairly useless if they don't know that
