The Dodge Nitro, dubbed "the brand's first mid-size SUV" by Tom Loveless, Dodge's Director of Marketing and Global Communications, will arrive in dealerships in October with price tags starting at $19,885 for a RWD base model.

The five-passenger Nitro is available in three flavors: the SXT, SLT and R/T. Standard motivation for the SXT and SLT is a 210 hp 3.7-liter V6. The R/T features a new 4-liter V6 putting out 255 hp and 265 ft-lb of torque.

The SXT entry level 4x4 in the range is priced at $21,395. Both SXT models come standard with a six-speed manual transmission.

The upmarket SLT is available in a RWD version starting at $23,295, and a 4x4 model starting at $24,805. Both come standard with a four-speed automatic 'box.

The more performance-oriented R/T model gets the new 4-liter V6 as standard, matched up with a five-speed automatic transmission. The R/T also features a performance suspension and 20-inch chromed alloys.
