According to several reports that circulate around the net, 2017 Dodge Durango could come with bigger changes that we might expected. This crossover is present for almost twenty years. It was originally introduced in 1997, and during all these years, we have seen three generations off it. Current model was released in 2011. It was refreshed two years ago. Although it seems to be still pretty fresh, there are many indicators that make us believe that complete redesign will happen already next year. However, all of this is just a rumor so, you should take it with big reserve.
2017 Dodge Durango redesign
At this moment, there are no official announcements about redesign of this large crossover. As we already mentioned, it was refreshed few years ago so, it could be a bit too early to see already 2017 Dodge Durango as redesigned model. However, there is one large factor that could be a major indicator for this big overhaul. You probably guessed, it is all about sales, which are going very slow when it is about this model. This model is far behind its main competitors. Less than 65.000 units were sold last year.
2017 Dodge Durango changes
Because of that, it is expected that 2017 Durango will come with significant changes. Exact details are still unknown. We can presume that new model will feature completely new design, both outside and inside, following the latest design solutions of the company. Besides those things, company will have to offer plenty of advanced features in all aspects, and some other, additional things, which will make this model better than competition. When it is about engines, 2017 Dodge Durango will come with new platform, and new powertrain is expected to be included too.
Current model is available both in V6 and V8 variants. For the new model, it is expected that current Pentastar V6 will be replaced with some more efficient unit. When it is about V8 engine, there are opposite reports on the internet. While some claim that current 5.7 liter HEMI engine will remain, with some improvements in terms of power and economy, there are some experts that go even that far, to claim that 2017 Dodge Durango will not be offered in variant with eight cylinders. We will have to wait for some official announcement.
2017 Dodge Durango release date and price
Redesigned 2017 Dodge Durango is expected to come next year. More details about exact launch date and price will be known in the future.
