These trucks never had much of a following since their introduction. They looked a bit more aggressive than other SUV's, but their interiors were depressingly tragic and its power train was deemed as "acceptable" only with the 4.0L V6. Its sister truck the Liberty could at least have the excuse of being off-road capable but this didn't have much of a point.

I just found out though that it was offered with a 6 speed manual with the 3.7 V6 that offered a woeful 210HP instead of the even more woeful 4 speed automatic. What does Oppo think about this?

Is the Nitro cool and odd with a 6 speed manual? Or is it as nasty as dipping pickles in chocolate milk?
