Dodge is known as a manufacturer of one of the trendy vehicles of that has been available for quite a number of years, their years of experience counts and it’s easily noticed on as all machines crafted out by this great automobile company.

Dodge Durango is that crossover car that cannot be overlooked, unlike some other truck-like SUV that portrays nothing but class, style and elegance.

The heftiness of the dodge Durango actually trigger the love of its fan towards the 7 seater suv, the car which can be called the big beast has a larger footprint though despite that it remains less spacious as Honda Pilot.

Interior Pros

The vehicle is not only considered luxury from the outside, the interior is something to behold. With a high class leather seat made for seven passengers, it’s configured to have about 50 different seating arrangements so as to accommodate cargo and passengers. The second row seats can be folded and tumble to create a passage for passenger to move in between chairs when vehicle is not in motion. Folding and tumbling the second row seat can create about 84.5 cubic feet of cargo space.

Driver and passenger beside him enjoy the comfort of available heated and super ventilated eight-way power seats with four-way power lumbar adjustment positions.

The Dodge Durango has a surprising spacious third row seats, the center console provides convenient access to vent controls for the second-row passengers. The car has a 115-volt power outlet.

The car has one of the best touch screen interface in modern years when we compare cars across different a wide range.

The steering looks fascinating and equipped with standard and high-tech features  that has been made available to keep control at your fingertips, these includes 7inch driver information

Digital Cluster Display, answering and ending Phone call with U-connect, voice command and eight-speed automatic transmission control, all at a fingertip on the steering. Also available is the speed control button to set a desired speed level for long drives while driver sits in comfort.

The powerful SUV is optional on all models but the base SXT trim is a suite of active safety features as it possess forward collision warning signal, automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning. Blind-spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert are all available as part of the optional features

Interior Cons

Dodge Durango has maintain its one style interior, with very little improvements over the years, I guess there has not been much negative comments about it from users and buyers about the crossovers interior. The Car’s USB ports is only for charging unlike the versatility of USB ports in vehicles of its class. The stream audio’s Bluetooth is not standard on the SXT model.

Exterior

The stylish Durango does not just look elegance but combines it with ruggedness .The brake light adds a glowing beauty to the muscle-like Dodge, it has a standard class led racetrack tail lamps that consist of about 190 single LEDs that formed the stunning signature of glowing red light.

Dodge Durango takes you forward with its creatively designed split-crosshair grille with dark or bright accents. This grill can be of choice, the Citadel features a stout chrome grille surrounded by a bright chrome cross-hex texture accent.

The available Stow N Place roof rack System with stow-able crossbars can carry up to 150 pounds. The crossbars are fold-able and kept in the side rails to improve aerodynamics and reduce wind noise.

Some Standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless entry/start, and three-zone climate control.

Engine

The 2018 Dodge Durango is available with three engines including a 3.6-liter V-6 engine with 293 horsepower (295 horsepower in models with dual exhausts) and 260 lb-ft of torque, a 5.7-liter V-8 rated at 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft, the third is the 6.4-liter V8 engine with 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. These engines come exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission which has been a more efficient pairing.

Fuel Economy

Like any other V8 engine, Dodge Durango’s fuel economy cannot beat any of its rivals whose cylinder stays at four, in comparison with its V8 counterparts it’s fairer, it’s a more entertaining V-8 powered and its burly towing capacity might be worth it for some buyers.

The EPA fuel economy ratings for Dodge Durango are 19/26 mpg city/highway for V6-powered rear-drive models and 18/25 mpg with four-wheel drive, the 5.7-liter V-8 engine has a drop in fuel economy, it stays at 14/22 mpg for both rear- and four wheel drive models. The Durango SRT with its 6.4-liter V-8 engine has the least efficient as related to fuel economy; it stands at 13/19 mpg.

Summary

The Dodge Durango 2018 model portrays class and style with diverse definition the midsize three-row SUV slots is obviously above others in its class, the car is made available in rear- or four-wheel drive configurations. Another feature giving it edge is the availability of a V-8 engine option and a performance-oriented variant. Another superb thing about this car is the powerful memory feature that can store and recall settings for two different drivers, from the steering wheel position and from the power driver seat to to the exterior mirrors and radio station presets.

Unlike any SUV on the streets, the Dodge Durango is by all means  America’s fastest, most powerful and sleekest three-row SUV one can think of.
