The SUV market is more crowded than a highway on a long holiday weekend. So, how do you stand out in a sea of sameness? First, veer off the beaten path and leave the pack behind. Second, while the others concentrate on simply being utilitarian vehicles, hone in on being a sport utility vehicle. Don’t focus on the number of cup holders, but focus on the number of horses under the hood. In other words, build a Dodge. Durango goes all in with its available HEMI® V8 engine, Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD), Sport suspension, and an incredible amount of horsepower and torque capable of pulling an equally incredible towing rating. For good measure, Durango offers plenty of technology to keep you entertained and connected.
Durango was built to conquer the conditions. Opt for AWD and the system leverages the SUV’s 50/50 weight distribution to enhance the vehicle’s traction and handling. The result is a smooth driving experience over a wide range of road conditions. Durango offers three AWD systems — a Performance-tuned system for the 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine, a two-speed, active on-demand system for the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine and a single-speed, full-time system for the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine.
Standard on the 2020 Dodge Durango is a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission that can deliver 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Next on the lineup is a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with Variable Valve Timing. This option offers an impressive 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque as well as a towing capacity of 7,400 lbs. At the top of the engine lineup is a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 that doesn’t hold anything back with 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. With this option, drivers can enjoy a class-leading 8,700-lb towing capacity.
On the inside, the Dodge Durango prioritizes driver convenience and versatility to match any situation. In fact, the Durango offers 50 different seating and cargo configurations to accommodate any mix of passengers and gear that you might have. The second row can be fitted with available Fold & Tumble captain’s chairs, allowing easy access for passengers. Back seat riders are sure to love all the available feature options, such as Three-Zone Automatic Temperature Control, a 9-inch dual-screen Blu-ray Entertainment System, second-row USB charging ports, and a 115-volt power outlet.
As one of the best infotainment systems in the market, the Uconnect® infotainment system is incredibly user-friendly and packed with the latest features. It offers Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® integration as standard equipment as well as SiriusXM satellite radio and voice command functionality. Drivers can upgrade to the available UCONNECT 4C NAV system, which features an 8.4-inch touchscreen display as well as additional elements like navigation, built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity, and SiriusXM Guardian services with applicable subscriptions.
