2014 SRT8 Durango is a go?
 
Topo Designs in California is getting one ready for the LA Auto Show. Anyone have any insight?

How do you know this? They just did a major interior/exterior overhaul and added the 8 speed? what kinds of changes other than interior/exterior will they make in 1-2 years?

I onow because sn srt durango is NOT in development at all. There would be a paper trail etc. If there was.

I understand that the SRT won't come out, but you said the Durango is being axed on its current platform, do you mean the SRT platform or dodges in general?

The durango as of a couple months ago wasnt being planned on its current platform.....perhaps another platform on down the road.

We had some good face time with Ralph Gilles at Carlisle, and he was pretty clear that there wasn't going to be an SRT Durango. Of course, things could change.

My *guess* is that the Durango is going to ride out the current platform, plus or minus some "grand wagoneer" insanity. Next generation, do not know. Probably depends on the uptake of the renewed '14+ Durango. A lot of this depends on product positioning, which is a bizarre exercise even on a good day.

sorry...my post was done on my mobile and very unclear. and filled with typo's. LOL. Last I heard....the Durango will not continue on the jeep platform....but could show back up down the road on a fwd platform.

Re: 2014 SRT8 Durango is a go?
 
My gut says that in terms of product positioning, a 'grand wagoneer' kind of thing makes more sense as the evolution of the Durango.

A Durango on a car platform (a three-row people hauler) is basically a minivan, so the people who care about the marque I think would really rather another name. Call it a "Savoy" or something.

Again, just MHO.

Ugh, one more front drive contraption. If they do that, they should call it Pacer.
