Re: Durango R/T Test Drive

Also forgot to mention.....didn't realize it came with 4 Low like the other Ds, but it does. Another plus

Thought it only had 1 AWD setting.

i disagree, i have two kids and it's great. not too big not too small. we even took the two dogs on our last trip. i think it's all in what you are used to. we do have a larger vehicle as well so that may play into it.

Re: Durango R/T Test Drive

This was a funny read down at the "man van" remark. There is nothing manly about a modern van.

Applicants, please leave your sacks at the door.

Re: Durango R/T Test Drive

Dealer sent me this link of the Durangos they have. It includes the RT with pics (first dealer in country as far as I am aware to post pics of an RT on their lot). If you live close to SE PA and want to be the first Durango RT owner give Micah Bergey a call. Good guy.

Re: Durango R/T Test Drive

That's a sweet ride. I like the sporty look of the cluster panel also.

8.2" ground clearance. No off-road for this thing.

Heres a pic I took while waiting for my oil change from my shitty blackberry camera. I took it on Jan 24th at Dick Greenfield Dodge in Lawrencevile, NJ

Re: Durango R/T Test Drive

i think you can get the saddle but not on the rt the rt is very sporty its gonna be like the srt for the durango. I was talking to my guy at the dealer and he was saying that theres talks of a durango srt8 bascally being the fastest 7 passanger truck on the road

Re: Durango R/T Test Drive

the new Journey R/T AWD looks good with the new interior, and they have a 3rd row, a bit more fuel efficient than a Durango R/T.
