•2010 Dodge Nitro Detonator
•2010 Dodge Nitro Heat
•2010 Dodge Nitro Shock
In attempt to lend Dodge's soft-roader some attitude, the Nitro receives a few new cosmetic tweaks in addition to new trim levels. Standard across the board is a tweaked 4.0-liter V-6 (now producing 260 hp), tinted windows, U-connect phone, Sirius satellite radio, iPod controls, cruise control, and a premium audio system.
The Nitro Heat ($23,995) adds 20-inch aluminum wheels from Mopar, along with a body-colored grille with bright billet inserts. The Nitro Detonator ($25,995), which largely resembles the content structure of the outgoing SXT model, adds remote start, rear park assist, and color-keyed interior accents. Of course, the most notable feature has to be the side stripes, patterned after those on the Challenger R/T.
Dodge considers the Nitro Shock ($25,995) its own trim, but only differs from the Heat by adding leather seats and a sunroof.
