New Dodge Durango debuts soon, production launch in October

A camouflaged prototype of the American mid-size Dodge Durango was seen on tests. The presentation of the SUV model year 2021 may take place in a couple of months.

Recently, Dodge did not say anything about the future of its SUV Durango. The last time we heard about this mid-size model, the automaker announced new “features for the 2020 model,” but it didn’t say anything specific. It turns out that the American automaker’s specialists have been busy working on an updated version of Durango over the past two months.

 If the new report from the western MoparInsiders online community is correct, the Durango 2021 model year SUV will be released this fall. Citing sources close to the company, the publication says some of the carmaker’s engineers delivered prototype cars to their homes during the outbreak of the coronavirus and even worked on model development in their own garages.

As far as we understand the situation, work on an updated version of the Durango SUV will remain a top priority for Dodge.

All brands of the Italian-American concern Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have now postponed all work on their projects for at least three months, but the start of mass production of Durango will begin on schedule. According to MoparInsiders, Durango production in 2021 may begin on October 5 at the Northern Assembly Plant in Jefferson, USA, and orders can start on August 6.

Since basically all the “live” debuts of the cars have been postponed to the summer, it is very likely that the American brand will show the updated Durango online. The start date for the production of new items has not yet been confirmed by Dodge, but this may mean that the debut is likely to happen very soon, perhaps even next month.

 As for the car itself, expect many visual and mechanical improvements. The interior of the model will receive a completely new design and new technologies, including the new Uconnect infotainment system with a 10.1-inch touch screen. The engine range will also be updated – the base will be the V6, and the flagship will be the 6.2-liter V8.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that it seems that this truck was made from the Dodge Dakota and Dodge Charger. Foreign tuners made a rather strange car in every sense.
