Stress and nervous tension are now serious social problems in all parts of the Galaxy, and it is in order that this situation should not be in any way exacerbated that the following facts will now be revealed in advance. The Durango in question is in fact the legendary Durango Hellcat, and it’s quite nice. The review shortly to be launched by a middle-aged club racer will result only in a few complaints about fuel economy, some mild but entirely unfeigned enthusiasm regarding the revised interior of said Durango, and the abuse of some “consumables,” including one set of OEM Brembo brake pads.

I wish all who like this vehicle and purchase one a long and happy life... That being said, I have never understood the high performance SUV thing.
To me, a performance car should be small, light, have cat like reflexes, and most importantly, have a manual transmission. Big, heavy, tall, and challenged by physics does not do it for me.
Again, please feel free to wish a horrible lingering, suffering death upon me for having this opinion but I simply don't get it. If mashing the throttle and being pushed back in your seat while being surrounded by more gadgets than a Sharper Image website is all there is to driving, then live and be well. I just want every limb and all my senses involved with my performance car.
Dodge and now RAM (Rebel TRX) have figured out how to get a HP Supercharged engine in what would normally be a family or work hauler. - Making the 'off' time that much more exciting! Keep it up FCA!!
I hope they put the hellcat engine in everything. The more of them that are out there the better chance I find a wrecked one someday so that I can load my 1970 super be with the bad boy engine.
It's a great review, thank you, and I wouldn't touch it. It's fat, ugly, and rude. I had a 9 passenger Ford Wagon that wallowed along, hauled everything I needed it to including passengers, was nice enough to go to Dinner in, and at the time I paid a tenth of price for it in comparison to this. This is too much everything.
I'm not sure where the reviewer got a fully-loaded price of under $90k. Mine will sticker just over $96k and that's without the leather interior upgrade or the exterior stripe package. That would've added another $2,790. Otherwise great review!
