    I work at a Dodge dealership and I know you can get the SRT front end and hood without the 392 engine. Saw one 2 weeks ago and had to take a second look. At first I thought it was an SRT but it only had the 3.6 V6.

    Well that is horribly disappointing.

    One of my friends just parked one in her garage last week, I'm itching for an excuse to sneak by and check it out!

    I need one of these to park next to my Scat. Could replace the DD 15yr old Durango.

    Yea, I was disappoint too but as a marketing point of view, they took a page from the Charger when they made the lower trim models look like an SRT. Takes away the SRT unique look but it will sell more Durangos.

    Indeed for FCA it makes perfect sense, for Mopar/muscle car enthusiasts it's a blow.

    I agree with this! We were gonna order an 18 R/T AWD in B5 blue to compliment the scat pack. The R/T looks pretty much just like the SRT now with the upgrades. In the end we didn't need a 3 row V8 SUV, so we settled on a Jeep GC Altitude 4x4. It seems we have the same taste in cars.... remember you from the G8 boards.

    Which is funny because that's one of the key things that caught the wife's eye with the Durango.

    Ah yes, how can you forget a name like Zodiac! Hope all is well!

    It is funny, we have similar tastes. I wanted the wife to get an SRT Jeep, since our CX9 is now 7yrs old and we stopped with 1 kid. No need for 3 rows in the family hauler.

    She's liking the Jaguar F Pace, but I'm still trying to work her over to Mopar.

    I really like this new Durango, but my DD will be a turd for a long time to come. Don't get me wrong though, I really enjoy my first Gen Durango. I can't afford 2 nice vehicle just for me.

    What a buzz kill but I'm looking at it from the other point of view I'm sure the bulk of soccer moms can care less about the engine size but want the better styling

    That was an R/T with a 5.7 Hemi.

    R/T's share the new style grille and hood as the SRT.

    The SRT has the 392.

    I just test drove a 5.7 R/T Blacktop Edition... While It's not a slouch, I'd prefer the SRT 392 version.

    Just fyi, I have a Daytona 392 to compare!

    I think you can get the new hood (with vents) with the v6 but not the new front end look. To get both you need the R/T trim at the least. Check out a dealer website to see pics. The dealer I work for is www.billluke.com. Click on new cars then filter/sort to see the new 2018 Durangos. At first you will see general pics but get to the bottom and you will see real pics.

    I had to go to dodge.com to see for myself and came to the same conclusion. R/T is a 5.7. But you can get the SRT hood as an option on the GT package.

    From what I was told at the dealership, you can... But my dealership is a bunch of morons...

    Update: I just checked and my dealership are a bunch of morons!

    R/T is 5.7
