2012 Dodge Durango

The name Durango may not even be around in 2012 – but for now, we’re calling this vehicle the 2012 Durango. In fact, this vehicle will share a platform with the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which will be a unibody platform instead of the traditional body-on-frame.

That fact certainly makes me question the Durango name. Perhaps Dodge will stretch the platform a bit to create room for a third row – though that technique didn’t work too well with the Jeep Commander. Rather, I’m guessing that this will end up a midsize CUV instead of the almost-fullsize SUV that the Durango is today.

There are no guarantees under the hood just yet, but the expected engine will be the Pentastar 3.6 liter V6 as standard, with the 5.7 liter Hemi V8 optional.

From a looks standpoint… the vehicle seen in these shots is far too heavily covered to really get any info at all. We’ll have to wait until further along in the vehicle’s development to get a good idea of what it looks like.
