We saw it at SEMA, but now the new Dodge Durango has finally made its production debut at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Dodge CEO Ralph Gilles had plenty to say about the new model. Gilles challenged journalists present to compare it to a BMW X5.

The Durango will get a 290 horsepower V-6 and a 360-horsepower V-8 and will tow up to 7400 pounds. In nearly all objective measures, the new model easily outclass the one it replaces, especially when it comes to their highly-updated interiors.
