You mean the 2nd generation Durango? The Diamler one. The 1st gen Durango sold well and was generally well regarded.Mr.Source said:The biggest mistake for the Durango was to name it Durango,it had never agood and positivr reputation,and after they drop it for 2010 they destroyed it,then they came with smart idea of not buiding enough Durangos to meet the demand,so dealers stopped ordering it and then came Durangos coma.
Chryslers marketing...not very smart people working there.

Agreed. The 1st gen Durango was very popular around here, and it was at the same time as my favorite DakotaMoparian said:You mean the 2nd generation Durango? The Diamler one. The 1st gen Durango sold well and was generally well regarded.
Durango right now, is little more than (IMO) a longer Grand Cherokee, with some styling differences. With both cost and time constraints, I didn't envision Wagoneer being anything more than a Durango sized Grand Cherokee.bethlumboy said:MoparNorm: "The Wagoneer would have been nothing more than a Durango with a Jeep grill."
Do we know this for a fact? I'm not challenging you-- just wondering.
I had hoped that it would have its own original body (while still using the WK2 platform-- think Commander)-- taller, boxier, maybe even a longer wheelbase to allow for true 3-row seating. This could justify the production of both it and the Durango.
I also think that the Durango should be a Chrysler, but I understand the decision to attempt to leverage the Durango name.
Coming? They're already here, but if that was simply the case, we wouldn't have needed the extensive changes. My job in the plant is 66% different than it was before because of the retooling and stuff being moved around. Some people came back and didn't even have jobs at all. They had to be relocated.MoparNorm said:New and refreshed WK's are coming, regardless of the name.
