2011 dodge nitro Professional Edmunds Review
Source: Edmunds

...In performance testing, a rear-drive Nitro with the 4.0-liter engine went from zero to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds while a 4x4 model hit the target speed in 8.2 seconds. Safety: Standard safety equipment includes antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control and side curtain airbags. The stability control includes a trailer sway control feature. Rear parking sensors are standard on the Detonator and Shock. The 2011 Dodge Nitro has not been rated using the government's new, more strenuous 2011 crash-testing procedures. Its 2010 ratings (which aren't comparable to new 2011 tests) were a top...

CarGurus' Review for 2011 dodge nitro

2011 Dodge Nitro Professional Review

...I found acceleration to be OK, but not great from a standstill. It didn't exactly lumber away from the lights like a heavy-duty pickup, but it wasn't a sports car either. And, like I said, passing power was OK. Stopping the Nitro was also middle-of-the-road: I didn't find the brakes to be horrible or great — just middle ground. Mileage is estimated to be 16/22 mpg city/highway for two-wheel-drive Nitros with the 3.7-liter V-6 and 15/21 mpg for four-wheel drive Nitros. Opting for the 4.0-liter gets you 16/21 mpg with two-wheel drive and 16/20 mpg with four-wheel drive. I drove the...
