This is Tim, riding the first private Nitro off the first shipment in West Australia (or so my dealer told me). I have had it for 2 months now. It is a khaki SXT CRD turbo 5-speed auto. In Aust, SXT is the equivalent of the American SLT package G, with standard 4x4, RT performance suspension and 20in wheels. I wanted something different to the mass and it was either a Hummer H3 or the Nitro. The latter won because it has the 460Nm CRD turbo diesel engine and the sweet (Mercedes) 5-speed auto. Except for the less than perfect finishing quality (comparing to Japanese cars), it has exceeded my expectation as a 4x4. I have not regretted my decision since.
