A lightly-camouflaged Dodge Nitro was tooling down the streets of Toledo, Ohio, when, BAM, the little 'ute struck the back of a semi after blowing a stop sign. Or so the story goes. The vehicle, which isn't available for public consumption yet, had something of an impromptu debut when it got into the little fender-bender courtesy of an engineer who was later ticketed for the incident. The Nitro's accident occurred near Jeep's Toledo plant, which will churn out dent-free examples for Dodge showrooms later this summer.

      This has already been introduced in production form at the auto shows, hasn't it? I've see them from time to time around the Detroit area.

      No accident, I've seen a few undisguised runners on the freeways here around DCX's HQ in Auburn Hills.

      Maybe they were doing real life crash testing!

      I have seen a few of these and the four door Wranglers running around...

      Looks Jeepish.. hopefully it will be a good seller for Dodge.

      Even people who work for Dodge hate them so much that they want to
      wreck them and get something else.
