Who would have ever thought that Twitter could actually be a real news tool? Not us, unless of course you want a follow a celebrity’s every move. Anyway, Chrysler has yet to show anything on the newDurango, which could be called the Magnum.

Fortunately for all of us, some Twitter user snapped a photo of what appears to be the new Durango/Magnum and it doesn’t look too bad. The exterior hasn’t changed a whole lot and the front still has that big Dodge crossbar front end. All that aside, while it doesn’t look bad, it sure doesn’t look good. If this is the only "new" Dodge can come up with then we are in for a few long years. We like the look of the Jeep Grand Cherokee far more than this SUV.

Expect the Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 and 5.7-liter Hemi V8 to be the engine options when this thing hits Chrysler showrooms in 2011.

This will be Mercedes GL. Like new Grand Cherokee is Mercedes ML (same wheelbase)

Too bad? After Daimler robbed the cookie jar and Cerberus fiddled while Chrysler lost engineers and designer, you should be thankful that Fiat/Marchionne are now involved and this will be the first of a remake of all of the Mopar brands.

I think it looks clean, and modern. Kudos, Mopar. It’s too bad you can’t expend the same effort on cars that you do poser utility vehicles.

For sure Twitter makes the Durango an instant celebrity.

This is the power of social media, good thing that it isn’t leaked on twitter.
