The info you read is incorrect, there has not been and currently are no plans for a Durango SRT.

They are also wrong on the 300 SRT being dropped - the all-new 2012 300C SRT8 6.4L will start production in late July, around the same time as the new Charger and Jeep SRT8's.

Milous! Thanks for the info. I am used to getting this stuff from my dad. He retired though and is no longer privy to so much vital insider info as he was before. I assume you work for Chrysler or some media company covering it? You might have mentioned it before but I forget. I know your info is solid though. Not doubting it! lol

Chrysler would be the winner there.

Im sure Milous sneaks into the office late at night in full camo, grabs all the top secret files, brings them over to his home computer and scans all the documents into the Jeep Garage Locked Thread Or was that that ESPN commercial with Ovechkin? Hmmmmmmm, I do confuse things a bunch

I have an 05 Durango. Been a great ride for over 100k miles now. Never liked the light wood in the Aspen.

Thanks! I feel like I'm missing out on so much. We get a lot of American media here, but months or even a year later. Except movies. Some of those we actually get before you do.

I'm not a fan of light woods either. Rich dark browns look much better. i remember Lincoln and Ford playing around with Grey wood on the dash of the fancier cars. Kia is using Ebony in their K5 and K7, and that looks REALLY hot!

Re: "Bloodied" 2011 Durango

I think it looks too much like the WK2 for it to even be a seller. It doesn't even have all of the positives of the GC, to be that big of a deal. Why get a Durango when you could get a better looking, and better performing Jeep. Just my opinion of this moderate looking ride.

Re: "Bloodied" 2011 Durango

I seen one at the dealer when i ordered my Overland last week. It was a white mid-range model, and it looked ok. The only real advantage, if u can call it that, is the third row of seats. For some people this is a must have, just not me.
When i asked my dealer about it, he said he drove the Citadel and it was pretty nice, tho not as nice as the GC. Also, he said the mid-range model they had was more expensive then my fully loaded overland. So unless u need 3 rows and dont want a minivan...i see no sense in this vehicle. Then again I see no sense in many vehicles some automakers produce.

I know I like the Durango better than the WK. More room, better looking front end, more bang for the buck on the lower end models. The only thing that I like about the WK2 over the Durango is that the WK was a better rear end.
