The 300 sedan has put a spring in Chrysler's step. Flush with that success, what's next for the brand? Insiders say the Dodge Durango is getting a crash course in luxury to create another Chrysler SUV.
Peter DeLorenzo, editor of the www.autoextremist.com Web site and a past consultant for the Chrysler group, even drops the hint that the truck might carry the Newport nameplate, a blast from Chrysler's past.
The Chrysler SUV is said to be scheduled to reach showrooms next summer. We could get a look at it at the Detroit auto show in January.
