The boys over at Allpar.com are generally right on the old Mopar ball when they post something, so when we saw this spy shot of the upcoming 2011 Dodge Magnum we just had to post it. With the death of the Dodge Durango and the demise of the previous generation Magnum in 2008 it seems that the guys over at Chrysler felt it only right to combine the two into the SUV you see here. This photo however makes me wonder how different it will actually be than the new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The new Magnum is supposed to have seating for seven, a longer wheelbase then the new Jeep and the new 5.7L VVT Hemi. I can also see, depending on how they market this thing it fitting into the same niche category as the GMC Arcadia.
If that’s the case then the new Magnum could be a quick favorite for those who want to stay primarily on-road and are looking at an AWD system for more of a safety feature then something that will take them trouncing through the woods.
