2014 Dodge Durango [UPDATE]

Say what you want about the Dodge Durango, but ever since it came on the scene in 1998, it has occupied its own niche in the SUV market – not too small, not too big, tough, able, not always the best on the road and not always the best off-road.

    1385143200

    Ron Burgundy was put on this planet to do one thing: to read the news. If that ever falls through, though, the womanizing, scotch-drinking anchorman could have a great career just as a Dodge salesman.

Judging by the comments from that post, there are some who question that reasoning. Now, though, there's further evidence ...
