Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Power pedals were a Ford thing, their attempt to get around have a telescoping steering column. It keep me from buying a 500, as I had to move the seat too far forward for arms to reach the steering wheel (34" sleeve), so my leg space was inadequate (also 34" inseam, 6' 1" tall). I think they have dropped it from current models.

That is not the case. The reason for the confusion is that there are actually two different consoles. You will get one of them with captains chairs.

The console as you traditionally think of one is optional if you get the captains chairs. This is a "full" console that sits high between the chairs, acts as an arm-rest, has cupholders and storage. (It also has a 115V power outlet USB charging port and "illuminated" cup holders.) You can't "walk through" to the back with this console.

The second console is a "low profile" console or "mini-console". This is the standard console with the captains charis. It sits maybe an inch or so off the floor and has a couple cup holders and a tray where you can lay items on top of. It is purposely built to allow you to "walk through" to the back.

Here's links to a couple shots of the interior with the mini-console (This happens to be 2012 R/T interior):

Shot - 1 Top view of mini-console
Shot -2 View of Captains chairs with arm-rests


So as long as you don't order the optional "full" console with center armrest and storage with the captains chairs, you will be able to walk through to the back.

One other note...with the standard low profile console, you get the armrests on the inboard side of the captains chairs. With the optional console you no longer have arm rests on the chairs...the top of the console serves as the arm rest.

I'm getting the full console...I only have two kids so won't use the third row that often, and when I do use it the kids are old enough (11 and 13) to operate the tilt and tumble. They will also appreciate the storage and power jacks. If my kids were younger and especially if they still used car seats, I would go with the mini-console for sure.

The other downside of the full console is that if you fold all the chairs flat (3rd and 2nd row), the top of the center console sticks up a few inches, meaning your load floor isn't completely flat....but I'll live with that.
I didn't get the full console for just this reason. My kids are one and four. With Car seats for a few more years this was the only way to go....

I'm SO excited, and guess I will be even more so if the Durango order banks DO reopen tomorrow. The great folks on this forum directed me to a great guy to work with in Houston, and the process was pretty painless. I still need a few fine points in writing to calm my skepticism, but looks like he will be placing an order for me ASAP. Yay! Local dealer called this morning after coming out of a prolonged hibernation. I had emailed the anticipated TX deal and asked if he could come anywhere close. He said no, but wished me well and said he was excited for me. Said a couple of other ppl in the dealership just shook their heads when he told them the %off invoice I was getting with a control #. The other shoe usually drops at my house.....lets hope NOT this time.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

I have been calling dealers in my area today for pricing on a 2014 Citadel v6. The best I was able to get was 1% under plus half the holdback. Basically works out to about 2.6% under invoice. All the others are holding at 1%.

One thing I found was when I had a dealer try to put the order in, he couldn't add the Entertainment option at all. Not sure if that means it "can't" be ordered or if he won't order it with a very possible delay in build

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Are there pics of the full size console. I know I have never seen one after a year of looking at 2012-13 Durangos. Seen a bunch o cars, but only the low console

Weird

My 06 Charger had them as does my current 10 Jeep GC. Not sure about the current models though....

Maybe somebody could answer this question for me - does the current 2013 Durango have power adjustable pedals? Will the 2014?
Looking through the Media guide... I see no mention of adjustable pedals....
