First '14 Durango Review....sort of...



Apparently there is an "embargo" for the automotive journalists for about 2 weeks, so we won't be seeing any "official" reviews published until probably about the 26th or 27th....but The Fast Lane Car is pushing the envelope a little bit and I think you can tell (wink, wink) that they are impressed with the R/T.

Man that R/T sounds good!

I've seen their reviews before but I hadn't come across this yet. Great find.

Lol...yeah...of course this only makes me start to second guess my choice of the V-6 on my citadel. What else is there to do while waiting for production but to second guess yourself?!

No, no, no. No buyer's remorse. No second guessing. This will not be a pity party!

You'll be happy with having kept the V6 every week at the pump while the ventilated seats keep you nice and cool, and the sound system pumps out great music.

We're getting one of the best vehicles in the class. Who else offers the combination of space, hauling, features and power the Durango does?

Besides, what's another 70hp anyway....

I don't know but I'm getting good at second guessing myself on the Durango! That's the drawback to ordering early. I didn't have a choice though... I pretty much had to order when I did. I drive too many miles and gas prices are too high for me to justify the Hemi. I sure like the sounds of it though. Immo's going to have fun and probably has that video on a constant loop!

Mine is sitting in a rail yard 60 miles away waiting to be delivered to the dealership. I should be able to go get it? I mean it has my name on it right?

Re: First '14 Durango Review....sort of...

Man, what's dodge waiting for, massive stock pile at dealers before they update their site and let reviews out. Even my local dealer in California got one on the lot yesterday. I'll have mine and miles built up before any of this info.

It's so close I can taste it. I can literally see the distribution yard from my backyard with binoculars where my durango is currently sitting. So close...

I'm sure you can walk right up....where do they put the keys when the trucks are in transit?

So you'll be able to, point-by-point, explain why the reviews are wrong, inaccurate....

I SO wish you could get yours. Darn well better have YOUR name on it. I generally am plagued by less than stellar luck and timing. Figures that mine made it to the dealership quickly but I'm landlocked in the Midwest for another week. My sales person has touched it, admired it, but couldn't find the keys yesterday to get in it. The good news is my paint job will not continue to bake in the TX sun, as this dealership has a multi story garage where my Citadel will hang out for a week.

I've had buyer's remorse since long before I made my final decision, and many days since. I am going to enjoy the heck out of this vehicle, and I hope and pray it isn't lemon yellow under the billet silver. And I ordered the Hemi. Why? I've been frugal all my life, driven a slightly underpowered vehicle for 14 years, and I'm moving to Dallas, where it seems one needs size and speed on the highways (and blind spot assist) to survive. I have some long distance trips I will be forced to make, but I'm not a daily high mileage driver. Of course, if I enjoy the throaty exhaust and hanging out in the Durango, that could all change.....until I go broke feeding it. Uh oh....there's that remorse again. Now, I just hope it doesn't have a sissy a$$ horn in case I have to let people know they are in my way.

I seem to recall hearing the horn on a video someone posted the other day (the 17 minute) and it does NOT sound sissy.

Looks like a race to the dealer between you and Immo. I'm sure we're all looking forward to some first impression reports.
