No front sensors, what! I almost ran into my SRT-10 trying to trip the sensors. Opps, when and I looked the bumper and none are there. Kinda bothers me since it has more stuff in it then my CL-65.
Good news is I have had two Gen1 (last one was an R/T). I like the mean look and size of them, but such a nasty ride and they rolled and bounced all over the road. The Durango I test drove was an R/T. It handled well and no roll, but the ride was not as comfortable as I would have like and the exhaust was as loud as our old R/T. The wife hated the red R/T on the front seats and I had to agree. We go back to the showroom with the sales guy and talked about this ugly red R/T on the seats and asked what else. He told us to turn around and there was this Molden Red Citadel on top of us! The wife and I looked at it and I was sold, the Wife was happy until see seen the price sticker and almost fell to the floor. I had been trying to get her in to a GL450 and this was 2/3 the price so I was happy. Everything inside says Benz, detail, fit and feel there is nothing cheap inside and the outside is awesome other then maybe a little too much chrome, but the Wife likes it so no beef on my part. What I like maybe most it get the frame from Benz ML class. After talking to the Wife about the price and her talking to the Sales guy for 4 hours and I am hot now, I go in see what I want and go drive it in as little time as possible. We buy and we both drive home in two cars. I ask her how she likes it and she gives me a kiss. She said it drives smoother then the Gen3 R/T we drove and likes the steering better. She tell me to take it out for a spin and it maybe your last time other then long trips. Her car no big deal is what I thought. I light up the Hemi and want to go out and see what the girl can do. I never got to do it. I was so impressed how the Citadel rides, what is inside for comfort. I felt I was in my CL65, but just setting higher. I finally get back home after three hours playing with all the toys and she is trying not to be hot, but it showed with the remark "you buy me a car and spend more time in it then I have." I sneak her now and take the CUV/SUV thing more the latter to get a wash every week, I do not do it more or she may think I like driving it more then having her ride pretty. It is a beautiful vehicle, yet mean enough for Men to drive. There are some vehicles I would never drive and this is not one of them. This is between small CUV and truck SUV, it fits my life and loving it. BTW, I have two sets of Grand Kids and the Wife is not a Soccer Mom, but she fills up the Citadel many times with kids and it works. Dang, she will not let me tow with it. The Bass tour I fish a CUV/SUV is a better choice then a truck as long it can tow a heavy Bass boat. The Citadel AWD can. If I keep fishing and go beyond local tournaments I need one since the Wife says leave my car lone!
