If you're looking for a midsize SUV that combines excitement and utility, look no further than the new Dodge Durango. Thanks to standout engine performance and a range of exciting interior features, the Durango is the perfect SUV for both your daily commute and lengthy highway drives. Here are some of the 2019 Dodge Durango features that you need to know about if you're considering buying a new midsize SUV.
All Durango trim levels feature attractive exterior features that you'll enjoy. The starting SXT trim features 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, and the SXT Plus adds bright side roof rails with integrated crossbars. Exterior equipment of the Durango GT trim includes front and rear body-color fascias and 20-inch satin carbon aluminum wheels. The GT Plus offers these same features as well as a power liftgate.
The 20-inch aluminum wheels of the Citadel trim are covered in eye-catching platinum chrome. Picking the R/T will net you a performance hood and front fascia, and the performance-focused SRT provides large Goliath wheels with a black noise finish.
Excitement is the name of the game when it comes to the Durango powertrain lineup. The standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine produces 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The R/T and the SRT trim offer powerful V-8 engines that drivers with a need for speed will find hard to resist. The 5.7-liter V-8 of the R/T outputs 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque and the SRT's 6.4-liter V-8 brings 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
The level of performance offered by the 2019 Durango should more than meet your needs. With the top engine option, for instance, you can tow as much as 8,400 pounds, making every camping trip or tailgating adventure easy. While you're hauling a trailer or boat with your SUV, the trailer sway control system selectively applies your brakes to maintain stability. Two all-wheel-drive systems are also available, giving you the ability to take your vehicle on a wide range of terrains.
You'll find seating for seven in the new Dodge Durango, making transporting large groups of people a breeze, and to keep everyone comfortable, heated seats are available in the first two rows. Luxurious features such as full leather upholstery and a sunroof are optional.
The available rear-seat entertainment system is the perfect addition for families with children and there is also a brand-new Harman/Kardon stereo system with 19 speakers that music aficionados will love.
The Durango offers an array of equipment that will keep you feeling safe when you go for a drive. If you frequently encounter traffic congestion on your daily commute, you'll appreciate the adaptive cruise control with stop feature that monitors your surroundings and adjusts your speed so that you're not too close to other vehicles. Multiple smart braking features are available to make sure that you can stop on a dime, including rain brake support, electronic brake force distribution, and ready-alert braking that prepares your system when you suddenly take your foot off of the gas pedal.
