At the LA Auto Show today, Chrysler showed their upcoming Dodge Durango and Chrysler Aspen Hybrids for the first time at an auto show although it's not the first time we've seen them. We actually got to drive a prototype last June at the Chrysler Proving Ground. Chrysler is still nearly a year away from production of their first hybrids and obviously the mileage numbers are not finalized yet. But when Executive VP for product development Frank Klegon made the announcement, he said the Chrysler SUVs would get a forty percent improvement in city mileage and twenty five percent overall. Unfortunately for Chrysler, this falls short of what GM has achieved with the same two-mode hybrid system in the Tahoe/Yukon. Those vehicles managed a fifty percent bump in town and thirty plus percent overall. Hopefully between now and launch, Chrysler will manage to eek a little more.
