The Dodge Nitro first made its way onto the road in 2006 in anticipation of the 2007 model year. It is a compact SUV that is known as much for its towing capacity as it is for its "Load N Go" sliding cargo floor. The Nitro's body-style is that of a four-door SUV, and it is constructed on the Chrysler's KA platform. Upon its debut, the vehicle was equipped with a 3.7L PowerTech V6 engine but a 4.0L SOHC V6 was also made available (in Europe, a 2.8L inline four-cylinder diesel could be had). Engines were mated to either a six-speed manual transmission with a four-speed automatic and a five-speed Tronic automatic offered up as optional parts. As for the model's dimensions, the Nitro measures in with a wheelbase of 108.8 inches, a width of 73.1 inches, a height of 69.6 inches, and an overall length of 178.9 inches. The Dodge Nitro also came with standard rear-wheel drive with partial four-wheel drive available, as well.
For its first year on the road, the Nitro was presented in three different trim levels: SXT, SLT, and the R/T. Standard in all models was electronic stability control, electronic roll mitigation, a tire-pressure monitor, front and rear side airbags, and side-curtain airbags. Upholstery and other amenities depended on the trim level. SXT Nitros received cloth, SLT versions got stain-repellant cloth, and the top-level R/T was decked out with leather. In 2008, a lot of the Dodge Nitro parts and the model itself were updated. Once again, it was offered as both rear and four-wheel drive on two trim levels - the SXT and SLT. Standard on both was a 3.7L V6 good for 210 horsepower, with the SXT getting a standard six-speed manual transmission with a four-speed automatic as optional. On the SLT, a four-speed automatic transmission was standard. The R/T kicked things up a notch with a 4.0L V6 that throws out up to 260 horsepower directed through a five-speed automatic transmission. With the base SXT, power accessories, remote entry, satellite radio, and air conditioning were standard. The SXT took it up another notch with alloy wheels, a power driver's seat, the Load n Go cargo floor, cruise control, and more. The R/T was geared up with even more niceties including a upgraded interior accessories. All models came with the following parts included into the list of standard Dodge Nitro parts: front airbags, side curtain airbags, traction control, stability control, brake assist, and a tire-pressure monitoring system.
2009 welcomed in another round of changes to the model. The SXT was replaced by the SE, which along with the SLT, was equipped with a 3.7L V6 which produced up to 210 horsepower geared to a four-speed automatic transmission. The optional R/T showcased a heftier 4.0L V6 engine (260 hp) with a five-speed automatic transmission. There weren't too many alterations for the 2009 model year. In 2010, the SLT and R/T trim levels were dropped and taken over by the SXT. Once again, rear and four-wheel drive was available in two trims, this time the SE and SXT. Both the SE and SXT were equipped with a 3.7L V6 engine capable of around 210 horsepower mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Since the R/T was discontinued, the SXT offered the stronger 4.0L V6 (260 hp). Standard on all models were power accessories, satellite radio, and air conditioning. Safety features across the board for all Dodge Nitro variants include active head restraints, front airbags, side-curtain airbags, traction control, stability control, brake assist, and a tire-pressure monitor. Although the Dodge Nitro has only been available for just a few years, it has provided the American automaker with a solid competitor in a crowded lineup. The vehicle has put up respectable sales numbers thus far and has earned praise from around the industry, including being named a contender for Motor Trend magazine's Sport/Utility of the Year (2007).
In the world of crossover SUVs, the market has needed a representative that stands out. A vehicle that not only delivers on all the necessary qualities everyone finds so important, but also the kind of presence that commands attention. Welcome to the Dodge Nitro. Bullish, muscular, and domineering, the Dodge Nitro is easy to notice. But not only does this badboy have the looks, it also has the tools to get the job done. Its pleasant performance and comfy interior are the key footnotes into what has become a compelling story. In a short period of time, the Dodge Nitro has established itself as a true leader.

Guides & Articles
- What Special Tools Are Available For Suspension Repair?Seasoned professional automotive technicians often say if you're using too much physical effort during a repair, you're simply not using the right tool. This is true, and a perfect example is repairing and replacing suspension components. If you've ever done this type of work or attempted to do it, you know it can be trickier than merely loosening and tightening bolts.
- How To Install a Grille Guard / Bull BarGrille guards, bull bars, push bars, and bumper guards all offer good looks and serious protection for the front of your vehicle against hard knocks found on roads and trails everywhere. One of the best things about these protective devices is even though they'll look good and keep their high-strength integrity for a long time, it only takes a very short time to install any of them. In fact, they can bolted on relatively easily, in most cases using simple hand tools.
- What You Need To Know When Ordering A Replacement Outside MirrorIt's a dismaying feeling seeing side view mirror components damaged. Whether you know how the damage happened or not, you're faced with what might be an extensive, costly repair and the dreaded hassle of figuring out what replacement parts are necessary - or where to go for the repair. Maybe it’s only the glass that’s cracked, or perhaps the whole assembly is hanging loosely by a wire.
- Glossary of Off-Road TerminologyIf you're looking to beef up your 4x4 to take it off-roading, chances are you've been reading about all the ways it's possible to improve a truck and get it ready for the trails. There are so many different approaches to the subject and so many differing opinions, your head may start spinning. We know starting from scratch can be confusing, especially if you're undertaking something you've never been involved with before.
- Bull Bars, Grille Guards, Push Bars | Protection Devices or Posers?Grille guards are sought-after accessories because they offer the rare combination of significantly boosting a truck's looks and adding valuable protection against front-end damage on job sites, off-road trails, and other tricky situations. Looking through the grille guard & bull bar section of our website, you'll see a variety of ways to protect the front of your vehicle. Because the expression "grille guard" has grown to encompass bull bars, brush guards, push bars, and bumper guards, we'll define these different styles and review the benefits each variation offers. Some of them span just the center area of your vehicle's front fascia, while others reach all the way from corner to corner.
- Off-Road Front Bumper Options | Push Bars, Brush Guards & Skid PlatesThere's a saying that advises out of all the paths you take in life, it's important to make sure a few of them are dirt. But while dirt can be found most anywhere you leave the pavement, far more challenging conditions and obstacles lie in wait - some seen, and some unseen. Because no two people's definitions of off-roading will be quite the same, we offer off-road front bumpers for 4x4s that are designed to avoid scrapes and damage while handling a variety of tasks OEM bumpers can't. Heavy gauge steel provides extra strength, and angled corners and edges provide extra clearance. Steep approach angles that would damage factory bumpers become no problem - wherever boulders arise from ashes.
- Durability, Versatility, Safety | The Benefits of an Off-Road Rear BumperAsk any serious off-roading expert what type of rear bumper is best for your 4x4, and they'll tell you the best bumper for extreme use (such as rock crawling) is one that's barely even there. What does that mean exactly? Translated, it means bumpers with edges that angle upward at corners and undersides that slope drastically upward will keep you out of trouble. Smaller size and less mass in these areas means better clearance at extreme angles - ensuring a rear bumper doesn't scrape, drag, or become damaged. Where OEM bumpers are massive and block-shaped, replacement off-road bumpers are not.
- Chrome Trim: Overlay vs. ReplacementOne of the more eye-catching tricks automobile manufacturers have used to differentiate higher-priced luxury versions of a car model from value-priced versions of it has been to vary the amount of chrome trim on the vehicle. Base model cars and trucks (also known as "strippers" or "entry level") have little if any chrome while luxury and top-of-the-line ones have the most chrome. In years past, plain Jane cars were simply painted in all areas instead of being chromed. In more recent decades, the low-cost replacement of choice has become black plastic. This makes base models easier than ever to spot because the eye catches hard on black plastic. Completely missing is the pleasing chrome finish on grilles, door trim, mirror assemblies, light bezels, and other areas. Base models end up looking more like fleet vehicles or work trucks than anything prestigious, especially to people who aren't automotive enthusiasts.
- The Trick Way To Determine What Size Wheel Spacer You NeedLet’s say that you’re in the market for wheel spacers. Whether it’s because you’ve added jumbo brakes, sprung for a set of custom wheels, or just want to widen your car’s stance (the VIP look), you’ve concluded that spacers are going to do the trick for you, and will solve your fitment dilemma.
- How to Choose the Right Tonneau CoverA tonneau cover is one of the most useful accessories you can buy for your pickup truck. Tonneau covers provide protection from the weather, security, increased gas mileage, and improved styling. But with so many types and styles to choose from, which tonneau cover is right for your truck? Read on to find out.
- Grille Insert – Overlay – Replacement - Which install method is best?If you're shopping for a new custom grille to add visual impact to the front of your car or truck, you'll see the installation methods described using such terms as "replacement", "insert", and "overlay". In this article, we’ll discuss what makes each of these methods different from each other. Whenever possible, we recommend reading a manufacturer’s installation instructions that may be available online before making a purchase. That way, you can make an informed decision regarding your ability to install the grille yourself or not. You’ll also get a sense of what tools and equipment you might need. We invite you to browse through our selection of hand tools, power tools, and other automotive tools should you find yourself in need of any of these labor-saving devices.
- Polished, Plated, Painted | Grille Finishes For Any TasteAutomotive enthusiasts enjoy engaging in discussions about which car model is sleekest, which truck is brawniest, which wheels are best-looking, which car wax makes paint its shiniest, and so on. The conversations are eternal, encouraging exploration of minute details on any given subject. But ultimately, there really isn't any answer to the question of what is the best of something because it comes down to a matter of taste. Custom grilles are certainly no exception.
- Replacement Grilles | How To Keep That Factory Fresh LookWhile custom grilles are among our most popular accessories, due to their relative affordability combined with the ease with which they can be installed, not everyone wants to change their vehicle’s look. Yes, that billet or mesh grille transforms the front of your car; but it’s still your car and therefore still your choice. You may, for various reasons, want to stay with the frontal factory appearance.
- Choosing Your Grille Design | Mesh, Billet, CNC & MoreThe grille on your car or truck is its most distinctive signature, and it's one of the first things people notice about your ride. A well-designed grille can make it easy for those with even a passing interest in cars to recognize the type of vehicle you drive. In our Car & Truck Custom Grilles section, we allow you to go a step further with grilles that complement, enhance, or revamp your front end a little or a lot depending on your preference. You can take this to its ultimate conclusion by creating a look for the front of your car that everyone will recognize as YOU. In this article, we'll guide you through the types and styles of grilles we offer, and we'll cover terminology you may not be familiar with such as mesh, billet, and CNC styles.
- Which Seat Cover Fabric Works Best For My Needs?Seat cover design and construction have progressed a great deal in recent decades. Not so long ago, the phrase "automotive seat cover" brought to mind loose-fitting lamb's wool or sheepskin covers which slid over an entire seat like a leaf bag. This type of cover was virtually the only choice available, so the fact that they fit poorly, slid off the seats, and constantly pulled up at the corners was taken in stride because they were, after all, one-size-fits-all products. Since they were universally shaped, a single product was tasked with fitting seats in large pickup trucks as well as those in snug sports cars.
- Which Seat Cover Works Best With Pets?If you own a dog, chances are you already know the joy that comes bringing them along in your car or truck. Part-best friend and part-family, dogs appreciate every nuance that riding in a car brings – things we used to appreciate as children but have forgotten as adults. Watching the scenery, hanging a head out the window to enjoy a cool breeze, and observing other animals in passing are just some of what bring dogs a great amount of pleasure during the ride.
- Floor Mat, Floor Liner, and Cargo Mat GlossaryAt CARiD, we understand it can be challenging to choose between styles of floor mats and floor liners, decide if you need a cargo liner, and figure out whether carpeting, vinyl, or rubber construction is best for you. In the Car & Truck Floor Mats section of our website, we offer many choices - each one with its own product description reflecting different descriptive terms and expressions used by the mat manufacturers. Because such terms can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, we've created this glossary to help you make a more informed choice.
- Vinyl vs. Carpet | How to Choose the Perfect Floor Mat?Floor mats and floor liners can do a lot to boost the luxury, utility, and sportiness of your vehicle's interior image. They are one of the first things passengers' eyes will fall on when entering your vehicle. That makes the floor mats you select worth careful consideration when it comes to factors such as feel under your feet, tolerance to spills, overall floor coverage, and colors. We've created this article to discuss how the different mat materials compare in those categories.
- What Are My Choices For Floor Mat Logos?Floor mats are one of the first things the eyes of your passengers fall on when entering your vehicle. Most of your vehicle’s interior looks the same as any other car or truck at first glance, but a custom logo floor mat will stand out – and it will do it for pennies on the dollar compared to costs of other interior modifications. Why? The mind is used to seeing only one solid color on 99% of automobile floors, so a unique logo or message in that very spot will capture and hold the attention of your passengers. For you, the driver, a custom logo of your choice serves as a constant reminder of what’s important or precious to you.
- What Are The Advantages In Using A Cargo Liner?If you've ever considered purchasing a used car, you understand how proper vehicle condition and cleanliness make a good impression. But have you ever noticed that a vehicle with a spotlessly clean, immaculate trunk or cargo area tends to really stand out in your mind? Sure, you can shampoo and vacuum the cargo area of a vehicle that's seen its share of abuse - but there really is no way to fake the look of a trunk area that's always been kept clean and scratch-free from the start.
- What Are The Differences Between Floor Mats And Floor Liners?Have you taken a close look at the existing floor mats in your vehicle lately? Odds are if they came as standard equipment, they’ve become more worn, stained, and full of ground-in dirt than you think. Factory floor mats typically consist of a thin layer of lightweight carpeting bonded to a thin layer of polymer type material that blocks water from getting through. Not a great formula for protection, and not the type of construction that is guaranteed to last the length of time you own your vehicle.
- Running Boards – Choosing the right Fit, Style, FunctionIf you have a pickup, SUV, or a Jeep, then you probably feel, as we do, that 4x4s are attractive in nature and serve as great canvasses for creating an individual vehicle identity. Because the overall shapes of truck designs are unpretentious, lines tend to accentuate strength. And bright work (or black work) applied in the right fashion can heighten bold styling, accentuate luxury, or both. We know that running boards or side steps have potential to make a big impact in this category, and we understand form is just as important as function when it comes to selecting the right ones. That's why we offer a great variety of full-length running boards and step bars as well as short-length steps. We've even got steps that fit easily onto trailer hitch openings.
- Side Steps - Choosing the right Fit, Style, Function
- Running Board And Side Step GlossaryRunning boards versus side steps: what’s the difference? That may be obvious to some, but what distinguishes a round side bar from an oval one? How would you know if you prefer a "cab-length" or "wheel-to-wheel" length tube step? If you’re shopping for running boards or side steps for your truck, you may be unfamiliar with the terminology. Browse through our helpful glossary, so that you can make a more informed purchase decision when visiting our Running Boards & Step Bars store.
- Trailer Breakaway Kits Stop The Trailer If It Breaks LooseSometimes when towing a trailer, it’s hard not to think about all the things that can go wrong – especially worst-case scenarios such as the trailer breaking free from your vehicle and becoming a “runaway” that puts property and life at risk. You start to worry if, when you lowered the trailer hitch down onto the ball, the locking tongue actually secured in place under the ball or did it get pushed up into the ball cavity on the hitch? This mishap can happen to the most of experienced towers because things look normal to the eye, and the coupler will even lock in place as if it’s properly attached. Or, maybe the nut on the tow ball has been slowly backing itself off on a long trip (lock washers have a less-than-infinite life span).
- Trailer Tool Boxes Provide Extra Lockable Space Where You Need ItWhen you carry a boat, ATV, or other equipment on a trailer regularly, you’re going to need to bring a lot of gear and equipment along for the variety of tasks inevitably required during the loading or unloading process. First, there are tie-down straps, hooks, bungee cords, locks, safety chains, gloves, and a flashlight. Then, then there’s assorted hand tools you may need in a pinch like wrenches, hammers, screwdrivers, pry bars, and other essentials – because flat tires and burned out bulbs need to be changed immediately. Not to mention other motor oils, lubricants, and fluids no one wants to be caught without. Whether all this stuff is loose or in a portable container, it’s going to take up a lot of space in the cargo area of your vehicle. And if you don’t want to leave it in your car all the time, there’s the hassle of lugging it back and forth to your garage or somewhere else.
- Trailer Winches Provide the Muscle When Loading Your TrailerWhen looking for a trailer winch, it is very important to remember that they are rated by weight capacity. Unless specified otherwise, the weight rating for a trailer winch is the amount of weight it can pull when loading a boat, ATV, or other vehicle onto a trailer – not what it can lift. Compared to an off-road winch, the load object is free to roll or float, and is therefore considered a rolling load. The trailer winch does not need to work as hard as it would, for example, if it were trying to free a Jeep stuck in the woods.
- Replace Your Worn or Wrong-Sized Trailer CouplerA coupler is the metal piece that physically connects your trailer to the tow vehicle. Once the coupler is permanently bolted or welded to your trailer's frame rail(s) at the front (this is the "tongue" area), it then fits over the round ball on the trailer hitch attached to your vehicle. Levers of various designs on the coupler clamp around the round ball tightly enough to prevent it from disconnecting, but they also allow just the right amount of play for proper pivoting around turns and over road undulations.
- Suspension Enhancements Will Raise The Rear Of Your Tow VehicleIf you are using your "daily driver" car or truck for occasional towing duty, you are looking for that ideal sweet spot where the weekday commute is comfortable and quiet, and the weekend trailering feels solid and secure. In other words, you don't want to vehicle to feel too "stiff" during the week, nor do you want it to ride "soft" when pulling a trailer.
- Trailer Jacks Keep Your Load Level and SecureEven the smallest of trailers needs the assistance of a jack to get the trailer tongue raised off the hitch ball, or vice versa - especially if you hitch up and drop off regularly. And if you have a travel trailer which is a mobile home on wheels, auxiliary jacks are the lifesavers that can be positioned around the corners (or anywhere) to ensure everything stays steady and level when weight shifts inside. Good jacks make a trailer feel like a rock-solid building instead of a temporary structure that might blow over in the wind. In the scope of this article, we'll discuss the variety of trailer jacks and related products we offer on our trailer jacks web page.
