Allpar has been told that the 2014 Dodge Durango will start production in May August 2013, ending speculation that it is to be replaced by the Jeep Wagoneer — at least, for the 2014 model year. Buyers could expect to see the new Durango at dealerships starting in October. However, Chrysler will reportedly keep production relatively light, especially when compared with Grand Cherokee.
The list of upgrades is essentially identical to that of the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee: eight-speed automatics across the board, UConnect 2, large-screen telematics, user-changeable digital dashboard, updated headlights and tail-lights, and a new tailgate. There has also been talk of the Dodge “racetrack” tail-lights appearing on the rear of Durango. The diesel option, enjoyed by Grand Cherokee buyers, is less likely.
The start date for 2014 appears to have been delayed by several months.
