Hybrid Hemi!: Gas-Electric Durango On the Way

This image was lost some time after publication.

Dodge introduced its slightly restyled Durango SUV at the Dallas auto show this week, and though the company didn't quite beat it to death with a pretty stick, it did make it hybrid friendly. It's true, the 2008 Durango will be offered with a full hybrid-drive system — the product of a development alliance between GM, DaimlerChrysler and BMW — that will pair an electric motor with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8. No word on mileage yet, but considering it'll be offered with variable displacement system, the new powerplant just may be the most cake-having-and-eatingest on the market. Hopefully it'll function less awkwardly than our morning prose.
