Could Dodge be unveiling the Durango SRT in Chicago tomorrow?!

I had heard on another forum that Dodge was going to unveil the Durango SRT at the Chicago auto show this week. While I did not believe it, I did a little digging today and found the following post on Dodges Redletter.com site:

If you’ve never been to the Chicago Auto Show, it’s time to make the trip. We’ll be there in force this year with all of the great new Dodge models that we’ve shown off over the past few months along with a couple of amazing surprises that are guaranteed to knock your socks off. We’ll be holding a press conference on Wednesday at 12.15 pm eastern time that you can watch live before the show doors even open to the public.

The Chicago Auto Show was first staged in 1901 and is one of the largest in North America. Because this event carries a great deal of the prestige, your friends at Dodge will have something really cool to unveil starting this Wednesday. Without letting the cat out-of-the-bag, we’ll provide you some simple word clues such as “Tune Performance”, “Springtime” and “Family”. In the meantime we can confirm you’ll see the all new Durango and HEMI® powered Charger R/T along with the Avenger and Journey. So stop by the Dodge display and open the doors and sit in our all new spacious and refined interiors and look under the hood to check out the latest fuel efficient yet powerful engines. If you’ve got any questions, our Dodge squad of experts will be on hand to take care of you.

The 2011 Chicago Auto Show opens to the public on February 11 and runs through February 20. See you there!

Could the surprise be the Durango SRT? Are the rumors true? How about the simple word clues? Why would "Family" show up along with "Tune Performance"?

Thoughts?

You may be correct. I surely tune in tomorrow, however.

I went to the St.Louis,mo Auto show they had A Durango there but not no SRT. It was just a 5.7. I still like the jeep.
