Selling for only 5 years before being replaced by the Journey, the Dodge Nitro was sold as the company's compact SUV.

Underneath the SUV was the same platform used by the Jeep liberty which was also discontinued at the same time in 2011.

Its donor car the Liberty sold much better than this Nitro version and it probably owes that to the company's tough off-road image.

Dodge was not known for SUVs since their last one was discontinued in 1990 (the Dodge Raider), leaving that side of the market to its sibling company Jeep.

Dodge did play to their strengths and released a performance model to help them attract the usual buyers associated with the Dodge brand.

The R/T, Detonator and Shock trims all featured V6's with varying levels of off-road capabilities.

Inside the car was a range of new comfort and safety technology varying by trim level.

A total of 195,000 Dodge Nitro's were sold in its short lifespan with the car peaking at around 75,000 sales in one year before sliding quickly.
