    Yes, which was originally supposed to replace the Durango if I remember correctly, then they realized what a terrible idea a FWD-based Durango would be so it got moved to Chrysler. At some point, it was frozen, then unfrozen, but maybe it's frozen again?

    This company changes plans like the Cleveland Browns change management and coaches. The only difference is the Browns don't have two players like Ram and Jeep that can keep them in games.

    I think we can say that Chrysler/dodge is Charlie Brown and the fca executive team is Lucy pulling the football away

    Dart, 200 and Cherokee were all based off of CUSW. Do we know whether Belvedere is going to play home to this versitecture. I think it'd be a great place to source a couple of Chryslers: 5dr compact: PORTAL (ala Lancia Delta) and midsize:pACIFICA (ala Grand Commander). Retain TOWN & COUNTRY as the minivan (retrospectively). Funny thing: PINNACLE seems to play right up there with IMPERIAL. So why wasn't that brand reserved for a Chrysler full-size CUV/SUV? There, we have it: THE PEOPLE MOVERS!

    They're down to one vehicle soon, the Compass. Didn't someone say Toluca was getting a three row Compass that we won't get?

    I still think the wagoneer twin should be a Chrysler and not a dodge.

    Except in the case of FCA and C/D, FCA says they're going to place the football, but never actually does because they're too busy scoring 2 pt conversions with R/J.

    I’ve had my share of FCA rattle cans: a 2012 Chrysler 300S, 2016 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack and 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Recon.

    The 300S was bought back by FCA, the Scat Pack and Recon I dumped after several attempts to get the dealer to eliminate the rattles. It is enough to drive you insane. Particularly on a new vehicle.

    They certainly soured my experience and my trust on FCA products. Worse, it’s significantly lowered how much I can now justify paying for an FCA product.

    No rattles here. Electrical issues, no doubt, especially with the Jeep.

    For all their other faults, my DCX vehicles were pretty much rattle free inside. Suspension noise on the L based cars was an issue back then, though.
    The nicer interiors we've seen over the FCA years have been more prone to rattles in my experience, unfortunately.

    Yep. I have a DCX era vehicle (2006 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT). After over 268K miles and 14 years it's still rattle free.

    I had a nice 2016 Durango R/T, but after spending a little time on a gravel road once per week, it became a rattle box.
    I later bought a well used 2006 Durango to make the same trip. It never rattled inside.
    Not to mention the 2006's cloth seats at 160k looked pretty much like new, but the 2016's red leather seats at 30k showed cracks on the bolsters and the different parts of the seat were aging to different colors of red..

    Of my 4 DCX-era LX cars (3 300 SRT8s + 1 Magnum SRT8), none rattled, ever.

    Of my 4 FCA-era L-cars (1 300S + 3 Challengers), 2 rattled from the start.

    Of my 9 Wranglers, the best assembly quality were my 2014 and 2015 JKU Saharas; the worst was that infamous 2018 JKUR Recon —which also has the dubious distinction of being the most expensive Jeep I ever bought.

    Before FCA, “rattles” were never a concern for me. Now is the first thing I watch for to in my test drives. I have to keep telling the salesmen to turn off the music.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that once I consider the overall quality of FCA products, and the customer service we get from the average FCA dealership, if I pay over $40,000 I am in fact over paying. At that point, I am better off spending that kind of money elsewhere.

    I had one of these for a rental recently...put over a 1,000 miles on it. I liked the size...plenty of room for 4 adults. I bit tighter than say a JGC...but cool you can get rear bucket seats. 3rd row tight...kids only. Adults can fit, but only for short trips. Drove well, plenty of power and easy to maneuver. I liked driving this much better than the Enclave.
    Downsides were seats are a bit narrow...compared to say a Charger.
    Also AWD a must. My rental was FWD, too much torque steer when accelerating hard...especially on wet roads.

    My '01 Durango which my son now drives to HS...358,000 and no rattles.
    '06 300C at 248,000....no rattles.
    '14 Durango Citadel...107,000...no rattles, but she creaks and buzzes at times depending upon road surface.
