No new Nitro's are available here in Fort Wayne. Neither dealer has had any for the last month! They must be sold between here and Toledo, unless they just fall off of the truck!

New Dodge Nitro For Sale Indianapolis area | p1

Three just arrived in Noblesville!

Had a person stop me today and wanted to know if mine was new and I said no, but showed him the inside and said he was going to Kahlo Jeep to see about buying a new one!

I am trying to figure out which model is pictured. If it was a Heat, the air dam and side cladding would be black. Maybe it is the new R/T, which uses the Heat's chrome clad wheels, and not the aluminum wheels from the Detonator and Shock. And, it doesn't have the hood-to-fender stripes. Maybe it is just an old picture. Rick, when the three show up, can you confirm what the 2011 R/T looks like? Thanks.

I was going over to take some pictures for you tomorrow, but when I went to Kahlo's Web Site they have numerous pictures already there (18 on two of them and 15 one one) so I don't see any reason now.

Here are the Links:

NEW 2011 Dodge Nitro Heat For Sale Indianapolis Indiana Area #1D327

NEW 2011 Dodge Nitro Heat For Sale Indianapolis Indiana Area #1D324

Are you thinking of the Article that states an R/T model will also be available?

New Dodge Nitro R/T model joins Heat model; comes with standard 260 horsepower 4.0-liter V-6 engine

Heated power leather seats standard on R/T

Available as 4x2 and 4x4 models

Thanks for the quick reply. Can you get this information for the R/T? Just curious. I had read where production stopped on the 4.0, which is being replaced by the Pentastar V6. Maybe they found some, but it would seem to me that some would have to remain in inventory for replacement repairs in the future.

Well it looks that last few Nitros in Dealers lots are really going to be far and few. In my 200 mile search from my location most Dealers have none left in stock and only one had the 4.0 engine and ALL were just the "Heat" model.

Any final production models may just be a combination of options and parts left over and not meet regular production guidelines, I suppose. These Nitros will be available from their production "Bank" for purchase by Dealers, sometimes at special reduced prices. Sharp Dealers should grab these up, since there will be some demand after production ends this year and may even sell at a premium from customers desiring a new and the final 2011 Nitro! Here are the factory standard R/T info for 2011, but again I found no R/Ts even available around Indiana.

I would have no problem recommending someone to order one now, as I have done in the past purchasing models that were going to be discontinued, however you now run the risk that not every option you chose will be available. They will still usually build the vehicle, but may delete an item or two.
