Dodge Durango (w/ Gallery)Fri, 03 Sep 2010
Chrysler's Dodge brand has released the first photos of the third generation Durango. Built on the same platform as the new Jeep Grand Cherokee, the latest iteration of the SUV features a unibody structure rather than the body-on-frame setup of its predecessors.
The Durango has never been a particularly elegant offering within the Dodge lineup, but it seems the company is looking to change this perception with this latest incarnation. The exterior design moves decidedly more upscale but also links the Durango with other models in the lineup. The front face is reminiscent of the company's Ram pickup truck but also has shades of the Challenger, particularly in the headlamp design. The bodyside also has more definition and the rear end design is elegant, though undeniably functional.
Interior photos have not yet been revealed, but Dodge is promising a spacious cabin and three-rows of seats. Created by the same interior design studio that designed the interior of the Ram and the new Grand Cherokee, the company is touting luxurious, refined materials and thoughtful touches aimed at increasing functionality and variability, with 22 different seating configurations.
