I saw the new Nitro’s at the NY Auto Show this past weekend.

They had a base model Nitro in black on the show floor, doors locked----VERY UNIMPRESSIVE, and very cheap seeming with lots of different color plastic on the outside and small chubby wheels, looked like an oversized toy truck.

However, downstairs with the other trucks, they had the Dodge Nitro R/T, in Inferno Red, with stock 20” polished aluminum wheels. They had it up on the rotating platform with the pre-requisite pretty girl giving her talk with the doors and hatch wide open.

The wheels may be a little to bling’ed out for some folks, and quite honestly it is hard to believe they will be the stock rims, but it is true. Another big plus is the reclining rear seats with drop down headliner DVD entertainment system for the lucky folks in the back. The Nitro will also feature a regular two prong outlet to recharge the cell phone, iPod etc. Factory remote start and Uconnect. Forward and rear leg room looked good, and head room should not be a problem either. Rear hatch opens to a large storage area with a slide out 400lb capacity loading dock. The dock slides out only 18” though.

Fully loaded R/T with a new 4.0L 255HP engine with Nav, DVD Entertainment and Leather expected to be around $30,000.

I will definitely be considering trading my 2001 Ford Escape on a new Nitro R/T in Red or Silver this Fall. They are expected to hit show rooms in Oct-Nov
