Keep reading to learn how this capable three-row SUV can make your daily drives much more exciting.
The Durango is a Dodge, so naturally, its base engine starts where many other brand’s powertrains leave off. Most trims get powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine that delivers impressive 293 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. If somehow that is not enough, you can slot in a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI®, which not only delivers up to 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque, but it can also tow up to 7,400 pounds. At the top of the list comes a 6.4-liter V8 HEMI® engine that pushes out a monstrous 475 horsepower and delivers a best-in-class towing capacity of 8,700 pounds. This powertrain comes standard on the SRT trim and makes the Durango America’s fastest and most capable standard three-row SUV.
Like any good SUV, the 2020 Durango doesn’t spare in comfort and utility. Seating for five comes as the standard option, but drivers can choose to add a third row that increases seating capacity up to seven passengers. As an upgrade, three-row models can be had with second-row captain’s chairs, which reduce the capacity to six but add extra convenience. A second-row fold & tumble system is also available to make getting in and out of the car an effortless task. In terms of cargo capacity, the base Durango offers 47.7 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. Models with three rows get 17.2 cubic feet of room for cargo.
All Durango models come standard with the Uconnect infotainment system, which helps deliver a seamless driving experience. Base models make use of a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, while higher trims are equipped with an 8.4-inch touchscreen and integrated navigation. To keep all family members entertained no matter the length of the ride, the 2020 Durango also has an available dual-screen Blu-ray system with 9-inch monitors mounted on the back of each front seat.
