Explosive Looks and Custom Accessories: The STARTECH Design Program for the new Dodge Nitro
The new Dodge Nitro stands out in a crowd with its characteristic design. In a world debut at the
ESSEN-MOTOR-SHOW 2006 STARTECH (www.startech.de) presents a complete
custom parts and design program that further accentuates the extravagant appearance.
The face of the American SUV gets even more pizzazz with the strikingly styled STARTECH front
fascia. The new front element was designed to easily replace the stock bumper by retaining the
original mounting points.
For a more homogenous transition between front and rear wheel houses the STARTECH
designers have shaped special rocker panels that give the five-door a lower and sleeker
The rear is refined with the STARTECH rear fascia. The fascia features custom-tailored cutouts left
and right for the two characteristic tailpipes of the fully stainless-steel STARTECH sport exhaust
For the turbodiesel version of the Dodge Nitro STARTECH offers its SD3 performance kit. The
auxiliary module can be installed by any authorized Dodge dealer in about 30 minutes. With it
maximum power output jumps from stock 140 hp / 103 kW to 180 hp / 132 kW. At the same time
peak torque increases to 360 Nm between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm.
More driving fun, more safety reserves and more elegant looks are the result of mounting
STARTECH Monostar IV light-alloy wheels. The one-piece 9Jx20 five-spoke wheels are fitted with
tires in size 265/45 R 20 in all four corners.
The STARTECH program also offers many choices for customizing the interior of the Dodge Nitro:
The STARTECH Lifestyle interior upgrade package gives the vehicle a more elegant ambiance.
Sporty highlights are available in form of aluminum door-lock pins, shifter and foot pedals.
Upon customer request the company-own upholstery shop precision-crafts exclusive fully leather
interiors in any desired color or design.
