    The exterior to me just misses the mark, proportions seem just off

    Would have been nice. By the way, they claimed the original Charger Hellcat had a max speed of 204 mph. So still one mph more than the Redeye WB Charger.

    Very exciting day for SRT, but this only raises more questions on the future of Dodge. The discontinuation of the Grand Caravan and Journey eliminated 40% of the Dodge lineup. Not to mention they were both doing fairly well in terms of sales. Will we ever see a Journey replacement and other new models from Dodge? Is this the start of the rut that Chrysler has been stuck in?

    As others have stated, I am just happy that the interior has FINALLY been udpated/redesigned... The new grill is still too boy-racer for my taste, and no other exterior changes save for the rear spoiler??? Not even taillights??? And what's the cost? Are we looking at a $90,000 vehicle?

    I don't like what I'm seeing, since we aren't getting any new models at all. They could have given us a new midsize sedan or CUV by now, since Alfa has their versions. It seems like FCA is just spinning their wheels and just focusing solely on Jeep. I'm disappointed that they only focused on putting out more SRT models, when it would have been beneficial to ar least have one shiny all new model to add to the lineup.

    What sucks, is that we all now know they can make additional 10hp on Charger Redeye in the following model year.

    I feel you. Right now, FCA is not,exactly, swimming in money, so they have to be very strategic on where they spend their investments. Chrysler has one viable car, and that is the Pacifica. They have spent good money on the Pacifica (All Wheel Drive and a refresh) and have ignored the 300. Dodge has only 3 viable models, Charger, Challenger and Durango, so that is where they are investing. Jeep and Ram are clearly the strongest brands and therefore have received most of the investments, which is smart. I wish FCA had more money and less debt, but that is not reality. I would love to see Chrysler and Dodge be as strong as Jeep and Ram. Me personally, I don't see Chrysler surviving too much longer. Dodge is dying on the vine.

    Please notify me when Chrysler or Dodge gets a new vehicle. Not something spruced up from a decade or more ago.

    I'm sad to see my favorite two car makes continue to shed offerings. Goodbye Grand Caravan and Journey. You will be remembered for the great service you provided. GC, you will be remembered for being revolutionary, a first of its kind. Stow n go seating, Cheerio's in the car seats, soccer practice, and being overall a grand vehicle worthy of it's Caravan name.

    For who like cars/suv at 100k fine but myself I dont care about engine at 500 or 700 or even 1500 hp. Bring me a dodge suv based on the Stevio or a phev Compass and I will but it on a heart beat.

    Only regret I had getting my 2019. Knew if we waited 2 years, it would be better. Couldn't do it. Almost did a GC for the interior. This looks great.

    Wasn't the Durango supposed to get the etorque 3.6 and 5.7 engines from the Ram this year? Maybe they didn't see much of a fuel economy benefit over the standard ESS or maybe they're saving it for 2022MY?

    I don’t think they will do it for MY22, since it will be the last model year for the current generation. It won’t be worth the certification.

    Aaaah, so that's why they still felt it was worth it to update the interior. The Durango will last untill 2021.

    No, it'll last through 2022.

    The new body-on-frame Durango should be released as a 2023 model.

    I love the interior. I'm a little bit jealous because I considered waiting for a 2021 Durango R/T before I bought my Jeep. However, if I buy another FCA vehicle, I think a WL Grand Cherokee plug-in hybrid will be my choice...probably the second model year that it's available.

    Can't wait to see the interior on the new Grand Cherokee considering how nice the new Durango interior looks.

    The Durango will survive, due to the fact that the Grand Wagoneer exist and you cannot justify an all new frame/architecture/platform for just one vehicle. So, the Durango moves up a notch. I wonder if Ram will get a Ramcharger on the full size platform? That would make 3.
