    Agreed.

    I noticed a Ford F-whatever 4x4 today and thought, “Y'know, Jeep had around that same ground clearance in 1962 with a truck that was probably two feet lower to the ground at the door-sill or hood.” They managed, in Gladiator, Wagoneer, and Cherokee/Comanche alike, to have class-leading ground clearance AND the lowest door-sills and pickup beds.

    Unless, and this is where I was going, they do a 1500 and a 2500 version. It would surprise everyone and not be quite as expensive as it seems, since the 1500 and 2500 do share a certain number of attachment points. But it would also cost more and take more time, so who knows? Where I have to stop and say “I’m probably wrong” is the “why would anyone want a Wagoneer HD” ... but then I remember the horse-trailer-pullers, a bigger market than you'd think...and I don't think the 2500 class trucks count towards CAFE.

    If they could offer the Cummins in a 2500 based SUV, that would be a big draw.

    Tahoe was popular with DoS in Iraq. They had up-armored Tahoes in Baghdad in 2006. The thing I remember about them was you were warned about sticking your legs out of the vehicle without having a good hold on the door, as it would at the very least be a painful experience if the door came back on you, it was so heavy.

    If you don't mind bumper pull, an SUV is a good choice. The Germans tow theirs with large diesel station wagons, or as they call them "Kombis." I've seen MB E/S Kombis pulling some pretty good sized trailers with the 3L turbodiesels they almost invariably have (2.9 something to be technical). Of course, they're limited to 100 KPH 62 MPH) on the A-bahns by law.

    I'd say so, but I'd want to bring it out for towing as a Durango HD.

    Has FCA ever offered a specially equipped Journey for police / first responder use? Seeing that the tooling and such have been paid off eons ago, it would seem FCA could offer this at a really low price.

    Let's hope the Durango lives on as a mate to these vehicles. If it would be priced anywhere near the current one it would be a bargain.

    Those side mirrors look look like the extended Ram Trucks. Great for times you need to see past your horse trailer.

    Is it just me, or is there a little Nukizer styling in that front end?

    After seeing the new Tahoe and Suburban, FCA might not be too late after all.

    All they need to do is 1) Not make it ugly 2) Not cheap out on the interior and 3) Copy the Ford Expedition.

    GM did good by offering the 3.0 Duramax for them though...

    GM nailed the Tahoe/Suburban. I think it’s going to be very important for Jeep to produce a Trailhawk Wagoneer in response to the Z71.

    I'll respond back with ... That design is trash in what way?

    They must be doing something correct for it to be the benchmark. From a styling standpoint they are selling well.

    Well, I guess you could say the 2021 is certainly a polarizing design. The interior just doesn't look good to me, similar to the Silverado.

    The new 2021 Chevy Suburban and Tahoe: 4 questions I have to ask (at https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/mark-phelan/2019/12/11/2021-chevrolet-tahoe-suburban-mark-phelan/4392424002/ )
