Re: 2016 Durango - Features and Changes

Awesome news...wife test drove a 2015 R/T yesterday and loved it. She likes the "sparkly" white paint so that tri-coat looks promising.

Any idea how "late", late availability is. Her current lease is up in March so we would need to order around January.

Re: 2016 Durango - Features and Changes

I read somewhere that electric steering assist will also become standard across the board. True?

Looking at the GC thread it looks like early January...here's hoping since that would be the time we would be ordering

Re: 2016 Durango - Features and Changes

Brass Monkey.....looks like FCA is trying to copy some of the Hellcat looks to their fleet to get some emotional buys boosting their sales...

Re: 2016 Durango - Features and Changes

So the Durango is NOT getting the V6 Pentastar Upgrade or the aluminum suspension components that the JGC is getting for 2016?

They probably want to make sure it works 1st, before they potentially screw up 2 vehicles
What sells more?..if its the wk2, then my guess would be wrong

Pentastar upgrade, yes, would have to check on suspension.
