Is the Nitro Necessary?

Industry News

With all of the small, mid-size, and large SUVs on the market, the Dodge Nitro is simply another offering. Based off the Jeep Liberty, the Nitro attempts to target a market base consisting of young singles and couples who live an active lifestyle and want a SUV with some hot rod attitude. When up against the competition, the Nitro shows its weak points. It does not have a very refined engine and the ride quality isn't great.

More importantly, its handling ability is not up to par. Compared to other vehicles such as the Ford Explorer, its weak points are clearly noticeable. So does Dodge offer the Nitro when the Jeep Liberty also exists and offers almost the same packages? Good question.
