What happens when you combine a classic SUV with unmatched power and capability? You get the Dodge Durango, a force to be reckoned with on the streets of Walled Lake, West Bloomfield, and Farmington Hills, Michigan. At LaFontaine Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we hope many drivers will consider the Durango as their next set of wheels, so we set out to review it!
Dodge Durango Performance
There is no shortage of power under the hood of the Dodge Durango. This SUV will give you four engine options, all of which offer something unique. When fully equipped with the Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® SRT Hellcat V8 engine, the Durango gets an unbelievable 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque. The other three engines include:
- 3.6L PentaStar® V6 engine: produces 295 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque
- 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine: produces 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque
- 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine: produces 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque
One of the many things that the Durango does better than anyone else is maintaining traction while on the road. This is made possible by its 52/48 weight distribution and allows for easy steering with paddle shifters.
More Capable Than Ever
Capability is the name of the game with the Dodge Durango, as it’s an SUV that can handle a big rig. With a maximum towing capacity of up to 8,700 pounds when equipped with the SRT Hellcat V8 engine, the Durango is big enough to handle many different trailers, wave runners, motorbikes, and much more.
With the 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine, the Durango can tow up to 7,400 pounds. The Durango can tow a maximum of 6,200 pounds when equipped with the 3.6L V6 engine.
Amazing Interior Features
The fun with the Dodge Durango doesn’t end with just the power and towing capabilities it offers. Its interior offers so many ways to enjoy your drive, from comfort to infotainment and more. Starting with infotainment, the Durango features an immersive 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen that supports wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Forget your USB cable at home? The Durango has an available wireless charging pad in the front.
For those long adventures, your passengers may want different ways to stay entertained. If they enjoy movies or TV shows, they’re going to love the available dual-screen Blu-ray™ screens, which are nine inches and can be found on the backs of the front seats. Backseat passengers will also have the convenience of climate control features and USB ports to charge their devices.
The Dodge Durango was built with comfort in mind, and that starts with the seats, which you can configure more than 50 different ways to accommodate the number of passengers and/or cargo. What’s more, you can fit up to seven passengers. You can also enjoy either standard cloth seating material or the available Nappa leather trim.
