The muscular stance, powerful V6 engine, 4-wheel drive capability, and hefty towing capacity make this 2011 Dodge Nitro live up to it’s name. And with loads of cargo space, seating for five, and a comfortable ride, the Nitro is also a great every-day commuter too.
It all starts under the hood of the Nitro with the 4.0-liter V6 engine that produces 260 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. With all that power the Nitro has a maximum towing capacity of 5000lbs so you can pull your jet skis to the lake on the weekends. Combine that engine with the 4-speed automatic transmission and the Nitro will deliver an EPA estimated fuel economy of 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg out on the open road. That will take you over 400 miles without ever having to stop for gas.
The sleek silver paint flows over the sleek muscular lines of the Nitro down to the 20″ chrome wheels and leads your eye inward to the gorgeous gray and black trimmed interior that is loaded up with features. Seating is upright and comfortable, offering a great view of the road ahead. There’s plenty of legroom for passengers and the back seat has a reclining function. With all seats in place, the Nitro has 32 cubic feet of cargo space, but if you need more the 60/40 splitrear seats can be folded down to create 65 cubic feet of space and to top that off, the front passenger seat can also be folded forward to make room for long items. The Nitro also has full power accessories, remote keyless entry, air conditioning, heated mirrors, and a roof rack. And even though the Nitro has a quiet ride, for the days when you need a little noise you can turn up the volume of your favorite tune on the 6 speaker audio system with Sirius Satellite capability and MP3 auxiliary input.
When it comes to safety, the Nitro received top marks in government crash tests with safety features that include 4-wheel ABS disc brakes with Brake Assist, low tire pressure warning, traction control, and electronic stability control with trailer sway control. The fog lights, rear window defroster and wiper, variably intermittent wipers, and weather band radio will help keep your visibility at a max no matter what mother nature throws at you. The rear child safety door locks, LATCH child seat anchors, and 3-point safety belts help keep your most precious cargo safe. And to top all that off, in brake testing the Nitro came to a stop from 60 mph in 122 feet! All these features work together with you to avoid accidents. But in the event that you do have an accident, the Nitro will surround you in safety with anti-whiplash front head restraints, dual front impact airbags, side curtain airbags, and an overhead airbag.
With all the features and styling the Nitro has to offer, you really must go see it and drive it for yourself. This beauty is being offered for sale by Napleton’s Palm Beach Acura for just $24,991.
