Overview

What's New

The 2020 Dodge Durango is still a muscle car masquerading as a three-row SUV, with only a few minor changes for the new model year. The Durango gets a couple of new exterior appearance packages as well as the new Premium Interior Group package which adds a suede headliner and a luxurious hand-wrapped instrument panel with accent stitching.

Choosing Your Dodge Durango

The Dodge Durango has a deep lineup with eight distinct trim levels: SXT, SXT Plus, GT, GT Plus, Citadel, R/T, Citadel Anodized Platinum, and SRT. Pricing starts at $31,990 including destination for the base level SXT and climbs to $64,490 for the powerful SRT model.

Engine Choices

Dodge offers three engines across the Durango lineup. SXT, SXT Plus, GT, GT Plus, Citadel, and Citadel Anodized Platinum models get a 3.6-liter V6 that's adequate for most applications. The R/T houses a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 for those who need a bit more grunt; this engine is a $3,995 option on the Citadel and Citadel Anodized Platinum. The SRT is equipped with a very powerful 6.4-liter V8 that essentially turns the Durango into a three-row muscle car.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueMax TowingFuel Economy (Combined)
3.6-liter V6295 hp260 lb-ft6,200 lbs21 mpg
5.7-liter V8360 hp390 lb-ft7,400 lbs17 mpg
6.4-liter V8475 hp470 lb-ft8,700 lbs15 mpg

All Durango models are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, and all but the exclusively-all-wheel-drive SRT come standard with rear-wheel drive. AWD is available for $2,600 elsewhere.

The Durango’s powerful engine choices are a double-edged sword. The Durango has the best towing ability of any three-row SUV, but the fuel economy can be downright miserable if you choose any option besides the V6 – even with cylinder deactivation. V6 models also feature engine stop-start to help save fuel.

That said, the power offered by the Durango SRT is something special. The SRT will sprint to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds, and it will run the quarter-mile in just 12.9 seconds. It's a perfect option for those who want a Challenger or a Charger but have a need for a third-row seat.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Dodge Durango will seat up to seven people, but be aware that the entry-level SXT doesn't come standard with the third row (it can be added for an extra $1,095). Additionally, the Citadel, Citadel Anodized Platinum, and SRT models limit seating to six with standard second-row captain’s chairs, which are optional on all other models except the SXT ($1,095).

The Durango is a big vehicle and offers a lot of interior cargo room. While the vehicle features only 17.2 cubic feet of space behind the third row, it expands to 47.7 cubic feet with the third row folded. With the flat-folding second and third rows down, the Durango’s interior expands to 84.5 cubic feet of room.

Safety Features

The Durango’s biggest blind spot is with safety. It achieved only a Marginal rating in the IIHS small-overlap crash test and a four-star overall rating from NHTSA. While that may have been par for the course nine years ago when this generation of the Durango was introduced, safety features have come a long way since.

Additionally, while advanced features like automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning are available, they require adding the $2,495 Technology Group, which only becomes available at the GT Plus trim level. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are a $495 option starting at the GT trim.

Many other manufactures now include some (or all) of these features as standard, putting the Durango behind the times.

Connectivity

The Durango comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. An 8.4-inch unit is standard on the Citadel and higher, or a $995 option on the GT and GT Plus.

The Durango also offers a $1,995 dual-screen rear DVD entertainment center for those confined to the back seats. The option also includes a rear seat video system so you can safely keep an eye on the passengers.

SXT - From $31,990

The V6-equipped SXT may be the entry point, but it isn’t lacking in features, with three-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and keyless entry. Buyers with stuff to haul will want to invest in the Trailer-Tow Group IV Package ($1,195).

SXT Plus - From $36,085

The SXT Plus may be a large jump in price, but it offers quite a bit more than the base model. A third row is now standard, as is satellite radio, and an eight-way adjustable driver’s seat.

If you're looking for some extra creature comforts, the $1,645 Popular Equipment Group adds heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a power liftgate, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

GT - From $36,140

The Durango GT is similar to the SXT Plus, but with more customization possibilities. Primarily, it gets the Performance front fascia and LED fog lights from the SRT, along with a two-horsepower bump thanks to a standard dual-exhaust.

Leather-trimmed seats are available for $795, as is a power sunroof for $1,295.

GT Plus - From $40,490

The GT Plus adds a few niceties like suede and leather bucket seats, and heating for the second row, along with all features of the SXT Plus’ Popular Equipment Group.

Despite being powered by the V6, the GT Plus is capable of being dressed up like the R/T and SRT models, with the optional Performance Hood ($1,495), carbon fiber accents, and a number of exterior stripes and decals. The $2,495 Premium Group adds a higher-end sound system, a sunroof, the larger touchscreen, and more.

Citadel - From $44,490

Where the GT and R/T trims both convey a sportier appearance, the Citadel trim reflects more of a luxury style with lots of chrome trim. The Citadel also gets standard Nappa leather seats, navigation, and automatic high beams and wipers, and the Alpine stereo system gains an extra three speakers for a total of nine.

R/T - From $45,490

The R/T trim features the more powerful 5.7-liter Hemi V8 and acts as a sportier foil to the Citadel trim with the Performance exterior trimmings, tighter steering, and a stiffer sport suspension.

The R/T comes standard with the leather and suede seats from the GT Plus, but full leather is available for $795. The $1,495 Premium Interior Group which adds a suede headliner and premium wrapped instrument panel.

Citadel Anodized Platinum- From $47,765

The Citadel Anodized Platinum builds off the standard Citadel with unique chrome accents, trim and wheels, perforated Nappa Leather seats with heating and ventilation, and second row captain’s chairs.

SRT - From $64,490

The Durango SRT is a hot rod disguised as an SUV. In addition to the 6.4-liter V8, the SRT gets Brembo six-piston high-performance brakes, Bilstein adaptive sport suspension, SRT performance pages in the infotainment system, and a unique SRT flat-bottomed steering wheel.

SRT also added a limited slip differential, worked on the steering, and even added active noise cancellation in case you needed to turn down the fire and brimstone coming out of the tailpipe.

Major options include High Performance Laguna leather seats ($1,595), a power sunroof ($1,295), and red seat belts ($95). Additionally, the no-cost Lightweight Performance Package removes the third row and changes the second row back into a 60/40 folding bench seat.

CarsDirect Tip

The GT Plus trim offers the biggest range of options at a price point just north of $40,000. At this trim, you can really customize exactly what you want in a 2020 Dodge Durango without paying for what you don’t want.

Rock-solid styling. Most competing models are crossovers based on car platforms, with soft edges and rounded corners. The 2020 Dodge Durango is also a crossover, but it rides on a rear-wheel-drive platform for optimized off-road use. The Durango’s styling is sporty and rugged, what you’d expect from the automaker.

The Durango SRT pulls out all the stops with its honeycomb grille, hood scoop, and chiseled lines. This look matches the SRT’s performance characteristics, adding substance to this model. Inside, all Durango models have a solid appearance, with high-quality materials throughout and big knobs and buttons at the ready.

Powerful available engines. For some Dodge Durango shoppers, the standard 3.6-liter V6 engine is all they need. This one packs 293 horsepower (295 hp with the dual exhaust) and 260 pound-feet of torque; it supplies sufficient step-off acceleration and passing power.

The available 5.7-liter V8 raises the power quotient considerably as it delivers 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. It offers an ideal combination of performance and pulling power, far outclassing its rivals. Powering every SRT model is a 6.4-liter V8 engine which generates 475 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. It's the fastest mainstream three-row crossover in production.

Fuel economy, though, is a trade-off. The V6 with rear-wheel drive earns an EPA-estimated 21 miles per gallon combined, while the 5.7-liter V8 earns 17 mpg combined and the SRT's V8 earns just 15 mpg combined.

Very comfortable for four. On paper, the Dodge Durango seats seven. But passenger space in the third row is tight, which means we recommend it only for short trips. Its a 50/50-split fold-down third-row seat we’d simply keep folded down.

As for the rest of the cabin, the seats are quite comfortable with wide bucket seats in the first row and a bench seat that folds forward in the second. We recommend two riding in the second row as three abreast is too close for comfort.

Cargo space measures just 17.2 cubic feet behind the third-row seat, which is why we recommend keeping it folded to gain the available 43.3 cubic feet. Fold both the second- and third-row seats and you’ll have a stellar 85.1 cubic feet available.

Feature-laden. Even base Dodge Durango models come well equipped. You’ll find 18-inch wheels, keyless entry with push-button start, tri-zone climate control, and cloth seats.

Move up through the ranks, and Dodge brings in 20-inch wheels, power side mirrors, rear parking assist, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and expanded package offerings.

Choose the R/T trim and this model has an 8.4-inch touchscreen display (up from the standard 7-inch display), a nine-speaker audio system, and smartphone compatibility.

The SRT adds loads of performance features, including a special cooling system and sport suspension.


Dodge Durango

Well behind on safety. If there's any glaring demerit of the Dodge Durango, then that would be under the safety umbrella. When it comes to its crash test ratings, it receives a four-star overall safety rating from the NTHSA, or just three stars with all-wheel drive.

You'll find certain driver-assist technologies, but they’re bundled under a costly package. For $2,600, you’ll find such features as lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking. These features are included on the competing Toyota Highlander.

Final thoughts. Although clearly aged, the 2020 Dodge Durango remains a competitive outlier in the segment. Stiff competition from the all-new Ford Explorer ST will give the Durango SRT a run for customers and their wallets, so a new model is clearly in order. Other models, such as the Chevrolet Traverse, Mazda CX-9, and the all-new Kia Telluride offer more safety features.

If you’re trailering, any Durango model will do. The V6 outshines the competition with its 6,200-pound tow rating, while the V8s have outputs of 7,400 and 8,700 pounds, respectively. These numbers rival large models such as the Chevrolet Tahoe and Ford Expedition.
