Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

I guess the front end will pretty well look like the pic since no one is confirming or denying it.

The silence is a bit deafening, isn't it?

If this is the case, I will join the others and say that I think it's a good thing. I personally prefer a more "masculine" or "truck like" appearance of SUVs / Crossovers compared to say a "rounded" or "flowing" appearance.

1) More like Ram Truck = Good.
vs.
2) More like 2014 Jeep Cherokee = Bad.

Of course...it all depends on the specific execution....

Thanks for saying exactly what I was thinking. That's the wrong direction to take with the front end in my mind. Honestly, with the exception of a bit more room under the hood, I think the front end is plenty mean as it is. The rear end is a diff story, but some led race track lighting with black accents would sure go a long way. As was said, it's all about execution...

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Im with you JoeyD ... I think the current Durango is more truckish then anything out there and was almost ready to trade in a Trailblazer for a '13 Durango ( I think the Traverse and the others are to mini-van-ish looking) until I heard of all the upgrades in the '14.... I hope the front end gets a little more aggressive and retains the truckish look. We are planning to attend the New York Auto Show one day so I guess I will see it there.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

So, an update... the Durango's front end refresh isn't as extensive as the Grand Cherokee, but it's more than enough to make me actually like the vehicle this time around.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Well there's not much else to say. You already know everything new about the Grand Cherokee. The Durango's upgrades are similar. I could describe the LED DRLs but the best I can say is "Hockey Stick".

Dangit, I just leaked another tidbit! LOL

To redeem my secretive, yet descriptive self, a lot of things about the refreshed Durango could be described like "hockey stick".

Oh, and how long does it take to build a PILOT BUILD!!! ? Not much longer than a regular production build.

I suppose the new rotary shifter knob could be described as a "hockey puck".

Your secretive self has certainly contributed to the intrigue. I have never had so much built up anticipation to drop +$40k on a depreciating asset.

Thanks for clearing up the build time for me...I guess you didn't notice that i'm a noob with a total of 3 posts.
