The 2008 Dodge Nitro offers nothing in the way of standard features that sets it apart from its major competitors, but when it comes to options, the Dodge Nitro begins to generate some serious excitement.

The standard features list on the 2008 Dodge Nitro varies somewhat between the SXT and SLT trims, and the R/T offers essentially the same loadout as the SLT. Edmunds reviewers reveal that "standard equipment on the base Nitro SXT includes 16-inch steel wheels, a roof rack, air conditioning, a six-speaker CD stereo," and "full power accessories." On the 2008 Dodge Nitro SLT, ConsumerGuide admires a "leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls, cruise control, 6-way power driver seat," and "heated power mirrors," while Edmunds notices that "a 115-volt outlet is standard on the SLT and R/T, thereby enhancing the Nitro's usefulness at the campsite."

Although the standard features may not be anything to write home about, the options on this 2008 Dodge make for a story worth telling. Kelley Blue Book says that "the highlight of the Nitro's optional equipment list is the comprehensive MyGIG navigation, entertainment and communication system," which Edmunds claims "offers navigation, MP3 file storage/playback and Bluetooth functions via a central touchscreen" located on the center stack. Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com praise the Dodge Nitro's MyGIG system, which Kelley Blue Book notes can "reroute the Nitro around traffic accidents" when used "in conjunction with Sirius' real-time traffic data."

According to Kelley Blue Book, "other key options" on the 2008 Dodge Nitro "include a six-disc CD/DVD-Audio sound system, rear-seat DVD entertainment system, premium speakers, SIRIUS Satellite Radio," and "ParkSense Rear Park Assist." Cars.com adds that the optional rear-seat video entertainment system on this 2008 Dodge "features a 7-inch overhead screen," as opposed to the seatback systems used in some other vehicles.

Conclusion

For those willing to pay a little extra, the 2008 Dodge Nitro can be equipped with quite a few desirable features.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
