2011 DODGE NITRO

New for 2011, the Dodge Nitro Heat 4.0 lifestyle package joins the Detonator, Shock and Heat models. The new Nitro Heat 4.0 comes standard with a five-speed automatic transmission, standard Uconnect Phone and an upgraded eight-speaker sound system. Of course, the Heat 4.0 would not be complete without the powerful 4.0-liter V-6 engine as standard equipment. The all-aluminum 4.0-liter V-6 engine delivers 260 horsepower and 265 lb.-ft. of torque.
The Dodge Nitro Heat features 20-inch aluminum wheels, body color grille with bright billets, sunscreen glass and performance suspension. The quality-proven 3.7-liter V-6 engine delivers 210 horsepower and 235 lb.-ft. of torque and is available in 4×2 and 4×4 models.
Detonator packs a punch with 23 percent more horsepower and 12 percent more torque than the smaller V-6 offering. Detonator shares its powertrain with Heat 4.0, including the aluminum 4.0-liter overhead cam V-6 engine and five-speed automatic transmission. The Detonator package also features 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, nine premium speakers with subwoofer, remote start and Parksense rear park assist system.
The Dodge Nitro Shock is fully loaded and with the new polished 20-inch aluminum premium-painted wheels, heated leather seats and a sunroof along with the 4.0-liter overhead cam V-6 engine and five-speed automatic transmission. The Shock has an intense, nine speaker including subwoofer audio system, remote start and Parksense rear park assist system.
