What’s Weak So, here’s the thing–the Durango SRT doesn’t have the power of the more-expensive Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, and it doesn’t have the luxury of a Range Rover or a BMW X5. Oh, and speaking of the X5, BMW claims the new M50i trim can do 0-60 in 4.1 seconds and starts at $82,150, which is just a few grand more than what our Durango tester was optioned to.

It's hard to say exactly which of the 37 shadow lines that pass across its flanks does it, but the confluence of styling memes conspire to make the Milano one hot mess of an Alfa. Most cars have a beltline, but the Milano has an actual belt wrapping around it and rising in the back like the top of a pair of mom jeans. The rest gives the impression that the Italian designers boycotted French Curves out of some sort of national pride, and inside it gets even worse.
