Wait, the Dodge Durango is still around? That’s what we thought too and despite Dodge’s press images looking like something straight off of DUB magazine’s cover, we find ourselves oddly attracted to the taut new 2011 Dodge Durango. Perhaps, this is the Durango to overcome the stigma of its gas-guzzling-pig of a predecessor. With a new, surprisingly handsome, design on a unibody platform, the new Durango will come equipped with either a 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 or a stump-pulling 5.7 liter V8 (with four-cylinder mode), both mated to an all-wheel drive drivetrain. That’s 6,200 lbs and 7,400 lbs towing capacity for you tow-mavens. An all-new interior designed by the same folks behind the new Jeep Grand Cherokee’s gives 22 different seating configurations for its 3-row seating and a bevy of new features like an arsenal of airbags, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross path detection, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, keyless-go, and a reported 500 mile cruising distance. That’s San Diego to San Francisco in one-run, gents. Available Fall/Winter 2010.
Dodge sent over nearly 20 high res images of the 2011 Durango. We’ve got them in a gallery right after the jump.
