Ah, the magic of the interwebs. Chrysler has yet to officially reveal the 2012 Dodge Durango (which could yet be birthed under the name Magnum), but we've come across this rather nonchalant camera phone photo taken by one of the Twitterati.

Judging from the Durango/Magnum spy shots that have come through our hands, the exterior design hasn't changed much during the SUV-turned-crossover's development. If we're honest, the design is a little milquetoast, but we'd rather Chrysler be executing simple designs rather than unsightly messes. Expect the Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 and 5.7-liter Hemi V8 to be under the hood when the SUV hits the road in early 2011.

      milquetoast

      Great, another jab at Chrysler from Autoblog! Just admit it for once! You that you are biased towards anything from Chrysler. It is obvious, especially in a stupid comment like that.

      Chrysler could make the most perfect vehicle on the planet, yet Autoblog and Jalopnik would still trash it. Complete bias, zero ethics.

      Did you have to look up that "big word" so you could look cool in front of the people who don't know what it means?

      Pathetic, man up Autoblog.

      Can't wait for the SRT8 version.

      That 2012 Dodge Durango is far from a Magnum which they have stopped making. I have a 2005 Magnum and wouldn't trade it in for anything.

      Looking at the structural elements (windshield, roof, pillars), the Dodge appears identical to the Jeep. Kind of like the difference between a Chevrolet and a GMC truck. Yes, they are different, but really they are just the same.

      It looks like we got out rendering of it pretty spot on back in May.

      Why would they call this thing the Magnum? This car doesn't resemble an elongated charger at all...

      The Magnum named leaked a few months back but Chrysler had plenty of complaints reusing that name. The Durango name is plagued with bad fuel economy. Chrsyler wanted a name that reminds people of good fuel economy and the Magnum was a great car that Cerberus killed off. Now its anyones guess if they are moving forward with the old name plate.

      I'm liking the whole Gen-1 Durango / Gen-1 Equinox love child look.

      Will it have the legendary Chrysler quality and residual value?

        This was no accident, this was Dodge pissing all over the hood of the new Explorer, marking it's territory with HEMI jizz. Chrysler has 5 homeruns before the end of the year, this new Dodge TahoeExpedition killer, the world beating GC, Chrysler 300, which is the American Mercedes, the Charger/Challenger man cars and the extraordinary Fiat Cinquencento. If they can just get the revamped Patriot or Sebring to take off, they jump into the lead lap.
