Go bold or go home! The 2008 Dodge Nitro an all-new mid-sized sport-utility vehicle whose bold and aggressive styling matches its dynamic performance. Shift your driving experience into high gear with the optional 6-speed manual transmission. When combined with the 260 horsepower 4.0 liter V6 engine you can tow up to 5000 pounds! All this brawn and there’s still room for plenty of beauty. The Nitro turns heads with its chiseled exterior and chrome trim. Take a look inside and discover the convenience of technology. The integrated MyGig Multimedia InFotainment System includes a 6.5 inch touch screen LCD display with DVD playback USB 2 connectivity and even a 20 gigabyte internal hard drive. Add to that voice-activated GPS navigation real-time traffic reporting and SERIUS Satellite Radio and you have a revolutionary driving machine waiting for you! The 2008 Dodge Nitro – go bold or go home!
