Re: 2015 Durango - Features and Changes

Yeah, I went through some of the same stuff that delayed mine for a while. First, a scratched front fender that required painting, then the first and second recalls on the rear control arms. Got the...

Re: 2015 Durango - Features and Changes

Have any of you who ordered your Durangos around mid-May (when the Beats system was confirmed) heard anything or picked up your new vehicle yet? I heard last week that mine was being shipped and...

Re: 2015 Durango - Features and Changes

According to Milous' post on 3/10 (page 3 of this thread) the red is available as an option on the R/T only, i believe. Should look good with black, silver or granite, in particular.

Re: 2015 Durango - Features and Changes

Yep, time to go spend some money. I planned to order an R/T this Friday regardless, and Milous' announcement came at just the right time.

Thanks again, Milous!

Re: 2015 Durango - Features and Changes

Yeah, I hope we can get a straight answer to the 2016 switchover timeframe. It would be really irritating to order a 2015 now and have the 2016 switchover announced in the next week or two!

Re: 2015 Durango - Features and Changes

Milous, any chance you can enlighten us on what's going on here, both on Beats and the possible timeline for switchover to the 2016 Durango?

Thanks.

Re: 2015 Durango - Features and Changes

I think factory orders generally take 6-8 weeks from placing the order until production, so that timing seems about right.

My sales rep has expressed frustration with the factory for not being...
