Chrysler goes green with 2007 Durango


The 2007 Durango, will be configured to be Chrysler Group’s first production hybrid system: the Dodge Durango Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV). It will offer the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with Multi-displacement System (MDS), an E85-compatible 4.7-liter Flexible-fuel Vehicle (FFV) V-8 engine which can alternate between smooth, high-fuel economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed, and eight-cylinder mode when more power from the 5.7L HEMI engine is in demand.

Available in 2008, the Durango HEV will also link the two-mode hybrid system, co-developed with GM and BMW to the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, providing an estimated 25% improvement in fuel economy.
