In this video we are looking at the Dodge Nitro! This was Dodge's first compact SUV. Dodge tried to hit a home run with the design, which some loved but many people hated as well, and those feelings extended to other parts of the car. I also go over 6 major flaws and reasons that I felt caused this car to be cancelled. Watch along for a full history of this car from concept in 2005 to its cancellation in 2012!

Was the Dodge Nitro Inspired by a 1983 Video Game Bad-Guy Car?
The Nitro is a dead ringer for the Bullet Proof Bully, aka Road Lord, of the original 'Spy Hunter' arcade game.
Apr 10, 2020
I'm the right age to have spent my adolescence obsessed with the arcade games of the Golden Age of Video Games, and one of my very favorites as a 17-year-old was Bally Midway's Spy Hunter. A two-dimensional vertical-scroller involving a chase between an intensely 1983-looking protagonist in an Isdera Imperator 108i and a cast of baddies in The Switchblade (a sedan with tire-shredding attachments), The Enforcer (a stretch limousine packed with shotgun-brandishing hoodlums) and The Bullet Proof Bully (an armored SUV), Spy Hunter featured a low-fi electronic Peter Gunn soundtrack just to make the player feel cool.
It's all there. The angled slab sides, suggesting inch-thick hardened-steel armor plate. The split grille with a gunsight design. The raked windshield, to encourage projectiles to bounce off harmlessly. Sure, the Bullet Proof Bully didn't get displayed using many pixels— maybe 25 by 60 at most— but that's the 2007 Nitro!
