The 2014 Dodge Durango will debut next week at the 2013 New York International Auto Show but the Chrysler Group issued the first teased of the refreshed ute this morning with a shot of a new taillight. It is clear that the new Durango will feature a similar “race track” taillight design to that seen on the current Dodge Charger and Dodge Dart…and from what we can see so far, it looks freakin’ awesome.
Unlike the Charger or the Dart which both have the look of individual LEDs running around the perimeter of the massive taillight, it looks as though the 2014 Durango will have a lighting setup to provide the look of one large, continuous light source. This could just be a result of the obvious photoshopping done to make the picture of the 2014 Durango more “mysterious” but it definitely looks in this picture like the Durango will share the general design of the Charger and Dart taillights but with a different look when all lit up.
Aside from the new taillight, nothing is known about the 2014 Dodge Durango but we can expect some sort of refresh across the front end with an overall exterior design that should be very similar to the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The new Durango will make its formal debut next week at the New York Auto Show.
