More speculation about a possible Durango SRT8

Inside Line just posted this article. Possibly a 2013 Durango SRT8

Re: More speculation about a possible Durango SRT8

"a source close to the project has confirmed that the Durango SRT8 is being seriously considered"

"If it does reach production, it would be as a 2013 model"


If it were to make it as a 2013 model, it would have to be well past the "considering" stage by now. I just don't see it happening, and my intel does not show it on the radar at all. Considering its weight and size I don't see how they could come up with decent performance/handling specs. Without a power bump it would be the slowest of all SRT vehicles. I think it would be a tough sell, and how would they price it - above or below the WK2 SRT?

Re: More speculation about a possible Durango SRT8

Agreed. They make mention in the article about the inflated price hike of the WK2 and that price would heavily weigh on its approval.

Re: More speculation about a possible Durango SRT8

This is what they should have did in the 1st place. The Durango look more sportier than the WK2 in its non SRT form. No telling what it would look like with the SRT treatment.

hey i had a tbss, they're not that bad. they're just slower than the jeep, uglier, shift poorly, the body rolls off every turn, made with shitty craftsmanship, never nearly gained a fan base, killed off prematurely...
