New Durango shares styling with Ram truck
Dodge previewed its redesigned 2004 Durango truck earlier this year at the Detroit auto show.
The mid-size sport utility vehicle goes into production this fall, with all-new sheet metal that once again draws styling inspiration from the full-size Dodge Ram pickup.
Available in rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations, the new Durango is longer, taller and wider than its predecessor, with 15 percent more interior space, including accommodations for seven passengers. Features on the '04 model will include a navigation system, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system and power adjustable pedals.
Dodge displayed the Durango concept with a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 -- just one of several engine options that will be available this fall.
