This is not the truck we deserve, but the truck we need
The 2021 Dodge Durango was launched a few days back and has been welcomed warmly by enthusiasts all around the globe. Dodge has set a cat among the pigeons in form of the 710-horsepower Hellcat engine under the hood of the 2021 Durango. This is certainly bound to reinvigorate the powerful SUV segment. However, it looks like the SUV could do well in another segment, thanks to a rendering by X-Tomi Design. X-Tomi has rendered the 2021 Dodge Durango as a pickup truck and we have fallen in love with it. With the Ranger Raptor enjoying some sort of a monopoly on the market, the Durango as a compact, powerful truck could rival it for supremacy. Who are you betting on?
X-Tomi has rendered the bulky SUV as a single-row compact truck, and the funny thing is that it fits the role without any major changes to the aesthetics.
The face remains exactly the same and only the rear rows have been eradicated that make up for the truck bed. With the hood scoop and the racing stripes up front, it looks like a sporty compact truck that is ready to beat the shit out of its rivals.
The full-size pickup truck segment is buzzing with powerful trucks, thanks to the upcoming Ram Rebel TRX and the new F-150 Raptor, as well as the Chevrolet Silverado ZRX. In the compact truck segment, however, things are a little stale. The Ford Ranger Raptor is at the pinnacle and no other truck can dethrone it at the moment. And with Dodge shortening its lineup to just three vehicles now, it would be a good time for the automaker to jump into this segment with the same Hellcat engine under the hood that makes over 700 horses.
