What engines make the Durango a best-in-class SUV?

In each Dodge vehicle, you can expect an array of engine options, with the top picks pushing standards of capability and performance in a commercial vehicle. The Durango hosts three different engine options across the trim models, starting with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that comes standard with the Durango SXT and GT trims. This starting powertrain gives a strong starting point for the SUV, producing up to 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque potential earning it a best-in-class V6 towing capability of 6,200 pounds. This V6 and other engines come paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a choice between rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive configurations. The latter two engine options that come at higher trim levels are HEMI V8 options, starting with a 5.7-liter V8 engine that comes standard with R/T trim and optional with the Citadel trim. This HEMI V8 pushes out an improved 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque allowing for a larger 7,400 lbs of max towing capability. The toughest engine offered with the Durango SRT is a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine that pumps out a massive 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. This engine works as hard as it sounds, going from 0-60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds and rated best-in-class to tow an immense 8,700 lbs max capacity.

How are the features spread across the trim levels?

Dodge offers five different trim levels with the Durango, starting off with the SXT that establishes a strong baseline set of features including automatic headlights with additional fog lamps, 18-inch aluminum wheels, variable/intermittent windshield wipers that adjust the rate based on driving speed, an advanced three-zone automatic temperature control system, split-folding 2nd/3rd row seats allowing for flexible storage options. Coming with each Durango is an advanced Uconnect multimedia system housed on a 7-inch touchscreen display with USB ports, a six-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, and smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Durango GT is the second trim level offered, taking the base set of features above and further building in a dual rear exhaust for improved performance, powered liftgate, LEDs for the fog lamps and daytime running lights, power-adjustable front seats, and larger 20-inch wheels. Dodge looks to bring in the first V8 engine with the R/T trim, also enhancing other systems of the Durango including a lower ride height lowering the SUV's center of gravity, dual-speed transfer case, and a sport-tuned suspension and steering. The Durango R/T also brings in other improved systems and features such as a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment system, a premium Alpine sound system with nine speakers and subwoofer included, a handy 115-volt power outlet that can power small appliances, remote engine ignition, improved high-intensity discharge low-beams for the headlights with high-beams that activate automatically, and windshield wipers that detect precipitation and activate automatically. Citadel acts as an intermediary trim level, looking to bring the same standard V6 engine but with the high-end features, we see brought in with the R/T trim. The Citadel also includes other key features such as heated seats and a leather interior upholstery set. The SRT trim is Dodge's highest performing trim, with tuned systems and features to offer the best driving performance the Durango can bring to the table. Some key features found at the top of the list include ventilated front seats, an enhanced Nappa leather upholstery, and unique exterior design elements only found with the SRT trim.

What are some of the top safety features with the 2020 Durango?

With the 2020 year of models hitting the roadways, Dodge has put in great strides towards incorporating modern technology to enhance the convenience and safety of the driving experience. The advanced multistage airbags brought in the front are highly rated, as well as the supplement airbags found throughout the rest of the Durango's interior. Other standard safety and security features you will find with every Durango include hill-start assist system, electronic stability control with all-speed traction support and electronic roll mitigation, trailer-sway control, and a rearview backup camera displayed conveniently on the infotainment system. Throughout higher model levels with the Durango, we see advanced driver assist systems worked in such as park assist system, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control system, and an advanced forward-collision warning system that pre-emptively detects an oncoming collision and activate the brakes autonomously.
