PERFORMANCE
Dodge Durango

At the heart of any vehicle is the engine; in the case of the Dodge Durango, you’ll have your choice of four of them. With its range of power, the Durango is perfectly positioned for all types of motorists: daily commuters, weekend warriors, and performance drivers alike.

Pure Power

The Durango comes standard with a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 that generates 295 horsepower (HP) and 260 lb-ft of torque and offers three available HEMI® V8 engines.

Acceleration (0-60 MPH)
3.6L Pentastar® V6 (standard) 295 HP 260 lb-ft 7.4 seconds
5.7L HEMI® V8 360 HP 390 lb-ft 6.2 seconds
6.4L HEMI® V8 475 HP 470 lb-ft 4.4 seconds
Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® V8 710 HP 645 lb-ft 3.5 seconds

So, regardless of how much power or capability you need, there’s a Durango for you.

Off-Road-Ready

When you drive the Dodge Durango, chances are adventure is on your mind. You can head off the pavement and take the road less traveled, even when it’s not actually a road. Uneven terrain, dirt paths, slick tracks, and shallow streams are no match for the Durango.

Available all-wheel drive (AWD) and near-perfect weight distribution help your Durango maintain balance and stay grounded. Plus, the available Bilstein® Active Damping High-Performance Suspension will provide an optimally smooth driving experience even when the terra firma beneath the Durango’s wheels is less than solid.

CAPABILITY
Dodge Durango

Another reason to drive an SUV like the Dodge Durango is for its strength. Its three levels of hauling capacity, from 6,200 pounds to a best-in-class max towing capacity of 8,700 pounds, mean you can tow whatever you need.

Tow Master

Weekend getaways, weeklong vacations, or that long-distance move are all made easier when you harness the towing power of the Dodge Durango:

5.7 HEMI® V8 7,400 lbs.
6.4L HEMI® V8 8,700 lbs.
Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® V8 8,700 lbs.

Hitch up a trailer and bring along your favorite outdoor toys: ATVs, jet skis, motorcycles, a motorboat or sailboat, a small camper, you name it. You can travel without limits—and with all your essentials—with the Durango.

Towing Tech

Aiding in this endeavor are the Trailer Tow Package and several Tow N Go packages that add, among other features:

  • Forward Collision Warning with Full Stop
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop
  • Electronic Limited Slip Rear Axle Differential
  • SRT® Performance Brakes
  • Integrated Trailer Brake Controller

The latest model year further increases your peace of mind when towing with the addition of available Blind Spot Monitoring with Trailer Tow Detection. When you activate the turn signal to indicate that you intend to change lanes, the system will alert you if there’s another vehicle in your blind spot, even with a trailer attached.

DESIGN
Dodge Durango

Matching the Dodge Durango’s muscular performance is its athletic stance and sporty style. When it comes to making a statement, the Durango says, go big and go bold.

Energetic Exterior

See and be seen. . . that’s the Durango’s M.O. Its LED headlights and signature Dodge LED Racetrack Taillights will announce your presence, both coming and going. A palette of nine exterior colors adds to its head-turning good looks in shades ranging from White Knuckle to Diamond Black and everything in between, such as:

  • Blues: Frostbite, Night Moves
  • Reds: Octane Red, Red Oxide
  • Grays: Vapor Gray, Destroyer Gray

Drawing on its muscle car legacy, the Durango brings a stable of performance models to the track, um, highway. Increase its overall racing aesthetic by adding several available exterior elements, including a vented performance hood and Mopar® dual stripes in a variety of colors.

Flexible Interior

Whether you choose the 2-row model with seating for five riders or three rows with seating for up to seven, the Durango has plenty of room for everyone—and everything.

                                                                               
Headroom (1st/2nd/3rd row)39.9/39.8/37.8 in.
Legroom (1st/2nd/3rd row)40.3/38.6/33.5 in.
Cargo Volume (behind 3rd/2nd/1st row)17.2/43.3/85.1 cu. ft.

Proving its versatility, the Dodge Durango offers over 50 different seating configurations. That way, you can arrange it to fit your ever-changing passenger-to-cargo needs. Even when all seats are filled, you’ll still be able to pack over 17 cubic feet of sports gear or groceries.
