What it Is
new cars: 2009/Dodge Durango Hybrid Preview – Dodge charges onto the hybrid playing field by outfitting the 2009 Dodge Durango with a two-mode hybrid, the same system utilized in the GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Tahoe hybrids and jointly developed with General motors, Mercedes-Benz, and The BMW Group. While the Durango is now a hybrid, Mopar fans don’t have to worry about giving up power as the Durango hybrid will still come with the 5.7 L Hemi and all the horsepower that comes with it. Other than some minor streamlining tweaks, the Durango is still the same, so the real preview is the hybrid system.
