They claim they can only make the Durango Hellcat for 1 model year because of the EPA guidelines starting in 2022 but they say the grand cherokee and GC L will be available with the hellcat engine?!?!?!?!?

Unless I am missing something both are Unibody SUVs so I would assume they fall under the same EPA rules the only difference on paper is the Durango is AWD while the jeep is 4x4, maybe that alone makes a difference but if that's the case seems like an easy workaround to not have to cave to the bunny huggers is just make every gas hog a 4x4

Probably because Durango is a Dodge product and don't have enough EPA credits to carry 10 Hellcat models. And Jeep would only have 2 with the Trackhawk and Trackhawk L.

(I got 10 models for Dodge: Charger Hellcat/Widebody/Redeye/Redeye WB, Challenger Hellcat/WB/Redeye/Redeye WB/Super Stock, and Durango Hellcat)

Not sure I'm feeling the design. It does look more upscale (Range Rover) and the interior looks incredible.

I think it looks great, especially in the dark grey summit trim. I was hoping it would be available with the rumored turbo inline 6, but the 5.7 hemi is a very solid motor.

The interior is really nice. Finally let the Ram interior designer have a wack at some of the other FCA products. Now let the RAM guys get inside the challengers please.

The interior looks MB S class inspired... (y)
But I can't figure out the mouth under the grille lol. Which one is it...

I personally think it looks great, but I am going to pass on it until it gets a few years under it's belt. Wife is probably going to get the new MDX this spring.

My Trackhawk has a shifter, I need a shifter even without a manual gearbox. I seems like everyone is going to buttons and knobs in automatics but I guess I am just old school. Maybe, just old.
