Last Dodge Nitro Rolls Off Toledo Assembly Line

The last Dodge Nitro has been produced in the US. The final Nitro's were built last Friday at the Jeep Toledo Assembly Plant where the Nitro shared platforms and many components with the Jeep Cherokee (Liberty in US). After initial sales success in the US and Australia the Nitro has suffered from erratic sales and marketing since the GFC. The Nitro was exported to Australia in 2007 where it sold well initially but it was not as popular in other markets and export production was limited.

Final Australian production vehicles are now being shipped and once these are sold there are no more. The positive outcome for Jeep is that the extra production time can now be utilised for production of more Jeeps.
