Re: 2011 Dodge Durango Test site

It the Durango is Chrysler's "performance SUV", then a Durango SRT8 makes more sense than a GC SRT8

But its not, the Jeep has been since 2006, so that makes more sense - Dodge has their performance car, the Viper, and used to have a truck, the Ram. Its still the Jeeps turn and so far so good, so might as well keep it going just my 02

Re: 2011 Dodge Durango Test site

Chrysler's press release refers to the 2011 Durango as a "performance suv".

Re: 2011 Dodge Durango Test site

The 2011 Durango shares the vast majority of its architecture from the new Jeep Grand Cherokee (which isn't a bad point to work from), and we expect both the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and 5.7-liter Hemi V8 to be available underhood. Curiously, Dodge refers to the new Durango as a "three-row performance SUV" in its press release, which leads us to believe that Chrysler might have another trick or two up its sleeve. Durango SRT8? Makes sense, especially since the new 6.4-liter Hemi is slated for use in the Grand Cherokee. We also note that Dodge doesn't appear to be playing up the Durango as an off-road model, either, at least where badging is concerned – instead of proclaiming the new model available with four-wheel drive, they've added an all-wheel drive badge (as seen above).

wouldn't surprise me if it happens! just bc you don't want it to doesn't mean it can't happen!

Milous Squashed the SRT 8 idea for the new Durango, he said nothing is in the works as of now...

However, the Chrysler Aspen/Commander was discontinued and they are making supposedly one new 3 row vehicle to replace them.. If the new Durango is a 3 row, that may be the replacement if its larger then what the durango used to be..

Re: 2011 Dodge Durango Test site

Probably because the Dodge dealers bitched about not having the product to peddle in their stores! Happens all the time, and why you have all those 'bastard' vehicles in the Mercury showroom that few folks ventured into!!! Throw a different front end on a WK2 SRT8, and you have a "completely new Dodge vehicle" to sell!

Re: 2011 Dodge Durango Test site

Just to be clear, I stated that an SRT version is "not in the works". That means, and maybe I should have been more clear, that there are currently no plans to bring out an SRT version of the Durango. That doesn't rule out one in the future. But, I would be surprised if they built one, it's a larger and heavier vehicle than the WK and I'm so so sure how it would handle under the power of a 6.4L. If any evidence of a Durango SRT should ever appear on any engineering documents you guys would probably be the first to know. Meanwhile, the SRT team is very busy and will be for awhile. They launch the 6.4 Challenger in just a few months, and they are busy working on 2012 models of the 300, Charger, Grand Cherokee as well as a couple of other 2012/2013 vehicle slated to get the 6.4.

While Dodge is focused on "performance", the definition of "performance" does not apply only to SRT models and the word can have many meanings. It might be important to note that there will be an R/T version of the 2011 Durango, with the 5.7L Hemi. That model would easily fit into Dodge's desciption of the Durango as a "performance SUV".
