The 2015 Dodge Durango will be released on the USA market this fall. The new model will feature only small and not too transparent changes as the current model already had a significant redesign. This, however, doesn’t mean that the new model will be dull or unsatisfying. Instead, the new model will come as more of a confirmation of the success its predecessor made. The Durango has a long history and through all those years there hadn’t been a time it could have been called poorly built or dissatisfying. The next year’s model will feature the same powertrain we saw before, slightly altered interior and exterior and a possible weight reduction. All in all, it will be an attractive, good-looking offer with more than interesting specs and features. We expect new model to, if not overcome the current one, the n to retain its position at their market segment.
