    Prior to the racetrack lights, the rear end looked too much like a GC.

    That wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, considering the GC is a handsome vehicle. But those lights were pretty generic. The racetrack lighting is very distinctive, but if they were so inclined to change to something else, something like the Challenger’s lights could work IMO. Not that it’s necessary, nor is it likely to happen with the current gen going away soon.

    Frankly I’m surprised they’re changing anything with the current model, unless it somehow leads into the next model..

    Agreed...Racetrack lights were a definite improvement.

    To me the racetrack lights definitely keeps it looking more modern and has helped it age better. That Challenger rear end render really doesn't make it look more modern at all, just different. It's just the fact that the current rear end has been completely unchanged for 6 years that's making it seem dated.

    Agreed , they look great but I have to wonder how much FCA is burning replacing these things because a large number of them get water in them and burn them out before the warranty is even out . These panels are $1000 to replace though im sure fCA's cost is less than that .

    Thousand dollar tail lights and three hundred dollar head lamps. What a waste, I will continue to lease,

    Since I'm not gonna be able to afford an DURANGO SRT, I'd be even more satisfied with a nice interior upgrade: new colors (kid of tired of the gray/black sea), textures, technology and overall layout. 6.4l V8 and I'm good!

    Was just reading on an old Durango forum that the leather suede seats is Alcantara? Is this true?

    aside from aesthetics, I think racetrack lights helps in safety to other drivers to define the shape/size of the vehicle in front of you, too.

    GT should have options other than black and beige. Beige looks really out of place in a vehicle with the performance aesthetic on the exterior. Should at least be the Caramel color found in the 2020 Charger, plus maybe red thrown in for good measure.

    Hopefully its an option and not standard equipment for 2020.

    Anything that takes the pendulum back from plastic that costs $1,000 if scratched to some metal the idiot behind you won't really hurt.

    Something to do with diesel? I mean, that's a BUNCH of exhaust system to have stuck on your back bumper and exhausted above eye level.
