2014 Durango R/t

Just picked up my Durango R/T Awd on 12/07/13 in white.
Tech pack
Napa leather
Tow package
Nav
sun roof
Door jamb protection covers with aluminum pedal covers and mopar side steps

So far I love it. I can say this baby rides like a dream. I can't see my self in any other suv. To be honest dodge has out done them self with this suv. Great interior and exterior. I haven't found any faults yet but then again I have only owned this for a few days bought it for the wife because I didn't want a mini van. The v8 is great but thirsty but I tow so it was needed.
Plus picked it over the v6 as the hemi has been around longer than the penstar motor. Love the 8 speed tranny and the zf tranny has proven its self in many other applications. So it should be a decent reliable vehicle I suspect.

I did come with some options I did not want but o well I can live with them.
I will be selling the mopar factory side steps if anyone is interested pm me.
I also wanted the all black wheels but it came with brushed aluminum with black pockets which does't look bad at all, just dont like that it was a 495 upgrade cost. I just think the black wheels looked better and I like the fact that they didn't cost 495. Plus didn't want the cd player either o well.
I hope for a happy relationship with the vehicle as it has been with my 2005 dodge pick up.

Congratulations on the purchase. I too had to get the "upgraded" wheels. I think the black R/T wheels look better too, but figured I'd just change them out at some point. They have grown on me since I've had them for a bit now. I have a black car, and it breaks it up the sea of black just the right amount as I don't like chrome. I still smile every time I get in my R/T and I've had it since late September.

Finally!

After 2 months of waiting, I got my new R/T on Saturday. Being that I never seen a billet silver one before, I wasn't sure how it will turn out.

It is stunning, outside is perfect, and the inside after a little de-chroming will be perfect as well.

LOVE IT.

Congrats! Interested to see the de-chroming too.

Looks at home in your garage.
