Next Dodge Durango to be called Magnum

According to an Autoblog source, Dodge will abandon the Durango nameplate for the model's replacement due for 2012. In place of that two-generation designator, Chrysler is exhuming the Magnum nameplate, a moniker used on the low-slung wagon built on Chrysler's LX platform up until 2008. The new Magnum is expected to be built atop the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee chassis (itself riding on Mercedes-Benz-derived architecture) and skew more toward the crossover segment than the previous rough-and-ready SUV.

it kind of makes sense, as many people will think of the Durango as an SUV that is not fuel efficient, so if this is more of a CUV with decent fuel efficiency, it could be worth it. of course: product > name
