Re: 3.6 - GC vs Durango - frustrated
When I purchased my 2011 WK2, they put me in a 2011 Durango Crew until it came in from the factory. I drove it about a month, and then got the WK2. I liked the Durango, and I thought it drove very well for it's size. I was pretty impressed. It moved much more nimbly than the V6 numbers would make you think, but I don't need all that extra space, and I definitely don't need the third row seat. ( I also think the WK2 rearend looks way better then the Durango's and no low range 4x4 offered) When I got the WK2, the "upgraded" feel to luxury was very evident. I don't think Jeep made the trans for sport at all. It's a pure luxury shift transmission. I actually like it. I can drop the hammer, and it just smoothly goes through the gears, you can barely feel the shifts at all, even at 80 or 90 percent throttle. So I think the Durango was made semi sport, family utility hauler, and the WK2 was made luxury, all surface capable. We can use it for sport and whatever else though.
