 2007 Dodge Nitro: not the Jeep Liberty’s twin, but still its brother
The Dodge Nitro is based on the Jeep Liberty, but it has undergone so many changes one could say it was the basis for the next-generation Liberty rather than than the currently selling model.
Like the Liberty, the mid-sized Dodge Nitro SUV can tow 5,000 pounds, and is available with a six-speed manual or a four-speed automatic; like the Liberty, the 3.7 liter V6 is one of the engines; and like the Liberty, there is an optional suspension package.
However, the Nitro also has a brand-new 4.0 liter V6 engine – designed by Chrysler – and the optional suspension package is for sportier handling, not better off-roadability.

The Nitro happens to be based on the Jeep Liberty platform, and at 179 inches the Nitro is only a few inches longer from bumper to bumper than the compact Liberty.
As concept vehicles go, the Nitro seems to be the kind that not only is likely to be produced but also is liable to be produced in roughly the same form we see here.
The upside is that the Nitro has almost all of the Liberty's offroad capability, hampered only by lower approach, breakover and departure angles due to a 4-inch longer wheelbase and greater front and rear body overhangs.
