Overview

With its powerful engines and muscular styling, the Durango could easily pass for a truck-based SUV. But it's really a family-friendly crossover with room for seven and a relaxing demeanor.

What's New for 2016

The standard V6 engine gains an automatic stop-start feature for enhanced efficiency. All models receive a new Sport driving mode. The performance-minded R/T carries more standard equipment than before.

Choosing Your Dodge Durango

Unlike most crossovers, the Durango features rear-drive architecture, which enables it to tow up to 6,500 pounds with the standard 295-horsepower 3.7-liter V6. The R/T's 5.7-liter V8 produces 360 horsepower and raises towing capacity to 7,400 pounds, on par with many full-size SUVs. Full-time all-wheel drive is available with the V6, and V8 models can get on-demand four-wheel drive with low-range gearing for moderate off-road ability. An eight-speed automatic transmission is used on all models. Other mechanical features include a load-leveling rear suspension, a Sport driving mode, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Dodge Durango

SXT

Comes with tri-zone climate control, keyless ignition, foglamps, power-folding third-row headrests, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a six-speaker sound system with Chrysler's Uconnect touchscreen interface.

Dodge Durango

SXT Plus

Adds roof rails, satellite radio, and a power driver seat. The available Popular Equipment package furnishes heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and an upgraded version of Uconnect with streaming audio. A sunroof is a standalone option.

Dodge Durango

Limited

Gets the Popular Equipment package as standard, plus leather upholstery, a power passenger seat, driver memory, heated rear seats, remote start, and power-folding mirrors. The optional Navigation and Power Liftgate Group adds a power liftgate, navigation, and HD radio. The larger Premium Group includes those items, plus 20-inch wheels, a sunroof, chrome exterior trim, and a Beats sound system. Finally, there's the Safety/Security and Convenience Group with blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a power-adjustable steering wheel, and HID headlamps with automatic leveling and high beam control.

Dodge Durango

Citadel

Comes standard with most of the Limited's options, upgraded brakes, expanded leather interior trim, ventilated front seats, and a nine-speaker sound system. The Beats unit is part of the available Premium Entertainment Group, which also includes a rear video entertainment system. For an extra measure of safety, the Technology Group adds adaptive cruise control and front collision warning with automatic braking.

Dodge Durango

R/T

Receives the V8, a sport-tuned suspension, upgraded steering, unique leather upholstery, and body-color exterior trim. Other features and options are similar to the Citadel's.

CarsDirect Tip

The Limited carries an impressive load of equipment for the price and be dressed up as you see fit. It's our pick unless you must have V8 power, in which case only the R/T will do.
