The newest 2020 Dodge Nitro is a crossover SUV that is placed side-by-side with a Honda CR-V and Chevrolet Equinox. The upcoming mid-size model is offering seats for five and is available with two V6 engines.
Also, this crossover comes with a rear drive system as the standard, while the all-wheel-drive system is optional. It offers a unique look and is equipped with massive 20-inch wheels.
2020 Dodge Nitro Exterior Design
The 2020 Dodge Nitro model will come with bold, upright exterior design. From the images that we get, the upcoming model will keep its old retro look followed with more sharper lines. The whole body looks attractive and the new model will feature clamshell-style hood, color-keyed crosshair grille, and decorative side vents.
This crossover SUV rides on a new stylish 20-inch polished aluminum wheels surrounded by all-season tires. The headlight, taillight as the fog lamp will use the same LED technology. As for the exterior colors, the 2020 Dodge Nitro will come with paints like Detonator Yellow, Inferno Red, and Blackberry Pearl. Furthermore, we can expect more color options for the final product.
The 2020 Dodge Nitro will offer spacious cabin and updated techs. With the two rows, this model is able to accommodate five passengers. It also provides roomy cargo space. However, for maximum cargo hauling, there is an available flat-folding front passenger seat. Furthermore, the rear seat will get generous legroom and headroom. Folding down the rear seats, the buyers will get huge storage behind.
Moreover, tech inside is also better than in the predecessor. So, with the standard package, the Nitro model will be offered with AM/FM/CD sound system with an auxiliary input jack, Sirius Satellite Radio, 6.5-inch touch screen, remote keyless entry, slide-out cargo floor and heated side mirrors, heated leather seating and many more. Safety will be also better, and we can expect electronic stability control, lane assist, plenty of airbags and child lock.
Engine and Transmission System
The 2020 Dodge Nitro will keep under the hood the same aging engines. So, we can expect two V6 options that will come with better output and fuel economy. However, exact numbers are not available at this moment. The current model comes with the base engine of 3.7-liter V6 that produces 210 horsepower and 235 lb.-ft. of torque.
The next one that is available in the higher trims is a 4.0-liter V6 engine attached to the five-speed automatic transmission. This engine makes 260 horsepower and 265 lb.-ft. of torque. Furthermore, both engines are available with a rear wheel drive system or a full-time four-wheel drive. So, with the new model, we can expect some output boost. More information will be available soon.
2020 Dodge Nitro Release Date and Price
The release date of the forthcoming 2020 Dodge Nitro crossover will happen sometime next year. The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) can be expected to be more than the current model because the new one will get more tech. So, the starting price will be around $23,000 for the base model. Furthermore, the fully equipped model can reach $34,000.
