I like it. Looks better than the Jeep SRT-8. Now make a Hellcat version.

As the owner of a '15 Durango R/T, I can say that this is awesome! I am seriously considering trading in my R/T for the SRT. I have had my R/T for 15 months and put 34K trouble free miles on it during that time. It's quick, handles great for a heavy SUV and looks good. I did a lot of mods to mine--Corsa Exhaust, SRT steering wheel, SRT Spider Monkey wheels, Brembo brake setup from Grand Cherokee SRT (6-piston front, 4-piston rear) and lots of other mods.

Looking forward to it. Depending what deal I can come up with I may lease one when my wife's current Jeeps lease is over next year.

I had a '14 Durango R/T and that thing was sweet......when it wasn't in the shop. I loved the design of the car, but in 1 year of ownership, it got 2 new rear struts, 2 new front axles, new power seat motor and bracket, new sensor for remote start, and was on waiting list for a new LED taillight. All in 1 year. All covered under warranty, but still....

I had enough. I literally made 12 payments on the car and traded it in on my Silverado. Good riddance. I was so disappointed.

Also, the dealership failed to tighten my oil filter after an oil change. I found that out after I drove 2 hours into KY right after I picked it up from service. So that was cool.

We have a V6 Durango at the office as a work car, and it's a pretty excellent SUV, overall. It does way better on a back road than something of its size and weight should, so I imagine it'll be a beast with more power, brakes, and suspension.

I'm intrigued by this, but, scared of the price tag.

As far as worst drivers, well.

Mustang Owners
Anyone in a Benz/BMW/VW
Camry owners
Prius Owners
Truck Drivers

I do see a V6 Camaro owner on my regular commute that drives as though he is john force and he has a top fuel dragster.

No I don't like looking at the Camaro tail lights in general .

I put it in there in jest with the other poster.

I like the Jeep SRT better, the interior build quality is out of this world compared to Dodge. I might be a little partial since I used to own a 2014
