Test Drive & Review: 2018 Dodge Durango SRT: - Mopar Insiders (at https://moparinsiders.com/2018-dodge-durango-srt-review/ )
@Jared26 got to review the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT thanks to our friends at Abbotsford Chrysler.
Man, I wish. My dealer has two of them, one white and one black IIRC. A little too steep for me though...my wife would kill me.
Interesting though, Jared mentioned that the SRT has the T shifter and other Durango’s have the rotary. I thought all the Durango’s had the T shifter now?
All 2018 D's have the T shifter.
That’s what I thought...one reason why I didn’t get a 2017...and then my plans went to heck anyway...but I would rather have the T shifter. I’ve never had a rotary shifter, not sure how I’d like it long term anyway.
You get use to it quickly...I like it a lot and would not change it in my D, though I thought the T-shifter made more sense especially in the R/T trim.
Nice review @Jared26. Just the sight of the 392 crammed under the hood just makes me all giggly.
I switched my 2016 Durango R/T from the dial to the new shifter. I didn’t mind the dial but I liked the new shifter a lot more. However I don’t like the new 2018 R/T grill and am indifferent on the hood. 2018 shifter in the 2016 R/T works well for me.
Cool, did not know you did that.
My mom had a Durango with the dial shifter. I didn't drive it very often, but when I did it was very easy to get used to due to the location. It was harder to learn in the Ram because it was placed near volume and air conditioning knobs.
Ditto on the 2018 grill,... not a fan. I do like the hood, though.
Personally, I like the dial... I was considering doing the conversion when I @valiant67 said he did it a while back, but I actually prefer the openness of the console as-is, and there is no need for "auto-stick" with the Paddles.
It's about having a place to rest your hand... coming from manual trans cars the T-Shifter gives me that pseudo feeling of still driving stick.
I don't think it would be a big deal for me, I'm pretty flexible after switching between manuals and automatics over the years. I'd be more worried about an absent minded passenger...cough...my wife...cough...trying to turn the dial while I'm driving because they thought it was the radio control.
We'll see...by the time I actially buy something, you won't need manual controls anymore, it'll all be done by our autonomous overlords. The microwave just told me that's probably true...hey...wait a minute...

@Zagnut27,... this is not the first time you've quoted your microwave as communicating with you... Are you sure it's not a Transformer?
I’m not sure...he won’t answer me directly when I ask.
Where's Marky-Mark and the Funky Bunch when you need'em, hahaha.
Sorry...the microwave “person”.
Did he just assume his microwaves gender??? TRIGGERRRREDD!!!!
