Chrysler-Dodge Hybrid SUV

The Chrysler-Dodge Hybrid SUV has been a mythical beast at best until of late.

First teasing us in 2001 with the Dodge PowerBox Hybrid Concept SUV that has never come into production, then of late finally announcing that the Dodge Durango Hybrid SUV would start rolling out in 2007 for the 2008 season.

The Dodge PowerBox Hybrid Concept SUV was unveiled at the 2001 Greater Los Angeles Auto Show. The Dodge Powerbox Hybrid combined a supercharged V6 engine that ran on compressed natural gas (CNG) with an electric motor that added oomph during acceleration. The Dodge PowerBox claimed environmentally-friendly status as it was granted Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle (SULEV) status and averaged the equivalent of 25 mpg (60-percent increase over a standard Durango).

The Dodge PowerBox also had a range of 350 miles, which was triple the range of most other CNG vehicles. It's a powerful vehicle that really goes the distance, and even though it's always worth getting the usual range of insurance and breakdown cover, you'll feel like you can go for longer, and further, than ever before. The supercharged V6 engine generates 250 hp and drives the rear wheels while a 52 kw electric motor adds power and drives the front wheels. The body of the PowerBox is also lighter than most comparable vehicles as it's made with injection-molded lightweight recyclable thermoplastic.

On the other hand, the Dodge Durango Hybrid SUV has gone from concept to reality as Chrysler-Dodge has announced that it will definitely make the autumn lineup in 2007. The hybrid powertrain has been co-developed with General Motors and has many new features including a tire-pressure monitoring system, electronic stability program, a one-touch lane-change signal and ultrasonic rear park assist.

In 2006, sales of the standard Dodge Durango have been in decline. For the first quarter, sales were down 39-percent over 2005 sales. Dodge is hoping its hybrid version of the Durango will swoop into save the day for its sagging market as consumer sentiment has change towards vehicles touting higher gas mileage. Only time will tell if Chrysler-Dodge can play catch up to the hybrid craze that is sweeping the nation.

For model year 2009, the Chrysler Aspen Hybrid has also been announced as an SUV that will share the same 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine with the Dodge Durango Hybrid.
