Not wanting to let Jeep get all of the SUV attention for the 2014 model year, Dodge is unveiling a refreshed version of its Durango at the New York Auto Show. Teased in this image, all we can really tell about the 2014 Dodge Durango is that it will be getting Dodge's "racetrack" taillights similar to the Charger and Dart.

The chrome or painted strip currently between the Durango's Zorro taillamps have been removed to allow for a full-width LED array with "DODGE" lettering displayed more prominently above the license plate pocket. Parent company Chrysler also promises that the updated Durango will add "several new class-exclusive features," but stops short of saying what those are. Earlier reports suggest that among the changes, buyers will be able to look forward to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, which ought to improve the three-row SUV's fuel efficiency.

      I really like this car already, but for us in Europe, it has bad MPG. I hope they will make it better, ideally they could sell it here with diesel engine, it would be still. For me it is better looks than Jeep Grand Cherokee plus it has 7 seats.

      IT'S ABOUT TIME! The Durango looks like a minivan from the rear -- it was like the designers ran out of time when they did the Durango and Grand Cherokee and slapped on any old generic lights. Better a bit showy and or vulgar and screaming "American!" -- that is what the Dodge customer wants

      Nice Toyota Previa taillights. Welcome back to the mid-90\'s people.

        Agreed, but realize that now we have "LED" technology, OOOOoooohhhh. Big whoop. Another "SUV" that can't quite go off road, ok maybe over some curbs, but that's just the mom's or overweight people who don't do that - suburbanites.

      Chrysler has a knack for making every sedan 'ghetto' and every Jeep 'trailer park'. Stop with the chrome and other bling crap already. You're making a good product now.

        Not only are the words that you used to describe your opinion offensive, but they also prove that you are a bigoted troll. There are plenty of other ways to describe your distaste in something rather than using derogatory innuendos. Take a hike.

        Obviously you never been to a trailer park. Because there are no jeeps there. It is either 90's domestic FWD cars or 80's and 90's 4x4 trucks

      Love the racetrack taillights. This is a nice Dodge signature, bringing cohesion across the brand.

        People should have bought more of them. Very easy.

          How is that a dense comment? The car came out, didn't sell, got cancelled...pretty simple.

          @ DK: True. Dodge even gave the Magnum a pretty extensive facelift for 2008 (which looked great), which also ended up being its last year on the market, and from what I remember sales were even lower that year. It was a nice wagon though, especially for the price.

      My friends and I refer to the current Charger as the Tron Car because of how those 'racetrack' lights look at night. And I'm all for them making their way across the rest of the lineup.

        They are absolutely unmistakable. I thought at first they wouldn't translate well, but they sure do. They look awesome at night.

        drop the durango in favor of the magnum and don't change the magnum into an escalade sized fugly car like the durango and i think you'll have a winner.

        Just go get a Durango. Ride and handling are exceptional and it is rear wheel drive with available v8.

      I love the Dodge trucks. I would trade my GMC in a heartbeat ...but for one problem. Here in Upstate NY, anything made by Chrysler, especially trucks, rot off the frame in 5 to 6 years with our road salt. Yes, Fords and GM trucks rust as well, but not NEARLY as fast. If you have a Dodge here that is 6 years old, ...it\'ll have a hole in it, ( or more likely a LOT of holes). Period.

        I live in MA, have a 2000 Intrepid with 210,000 miles on it. No rust. On the flip side my neighbor has one the same year with similar miles with extensive underbody rot. It's all about how you car for it.

        odd, we do not have that problem with ours in WV. We also get plenty of snow and salt

      Dodge said a couple years ago that they were dropping the Durango.

        Not until the Jeep Grand Wagoneer is ready to launch and even then the Durango may stay around because they may appeal to different demographics.
