2014 Durango R/T Review

I put about 50 miles on today. I thought I'd share a few thoughts thus far.

It's darn near perfect, just a few things I'd change etc

  • I'd love a storage section in the center stack like the WK2. I'd be nice to leave my iPod plugged in and hidden. either that or bring back the USB in the Arm Rest.
  • It seems to take a long time for commands to reach the car from the Uconnect smartphone client.
  • Not a huge fan of the shift knob but will get over it.
Other than that it's everything I expected so far.

Are you missing the power of your 2010 SRT?

The one thing I need to change are the polished "Dodge" letters on the tailgate. Any ideas? I don't want them gone would just prefer to make them black.

3M vinyl looks great, but is probably hard to apply to the letters. You could always plasti-dip them, but plasti-dip looks pretty cheap IMO. The best option, depending on what look you are going for, is probably to paint them gloss black.

So far only 3 things I'd change

1) the same closed storage area that comes in the center stack of the Jeep.

2) a center seating row that slides forward instead of the fold and tumble seats.

3) more power in the R/T to set it apart.

I think the 392 will be in a Durango before it's killed off. Would be badass!

I'm not a betting man and as much as I'd love to see one I highly doubt it's going to happen.
