Get to Know the 2017 Dodge Durango

If you’ve got lots of friends and family to cart around in the Richmond, New Baltimore, and Detroit areas, then a bigger SUV is a must. Rather than choosing some major gas-guzzler, why not choose a vehicle that can offer plenty of space and comfort without compromising efficiency?

At Dick Huvaere’s Richmond Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we know that the 2017 Dodge Durango fits the bill. To show you, we’ve put together this helpful review.

Dodge Durango Performance Specs

At the heart of any SUV, you should expect to find a reasonably beefy powertrain. And in this respect, the Durango really delivers. Under the hood, you’ll find a 3.6L Pentastar® engine capable of generating 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

It’s thanks to all that muscle that your SUV can then haul up to 6,200 pounds of cargo. Whether you’re hauling camping equipment, a boat, or something more, you should have all the brawn you need to take it with you.

Nevertheless, that muscle won’t ruin your fuel efficiency. With a streamlined 8-speed automatic transmission, you’ll still be able to maintain 26 highway MPG and 19 city MPG.1

The 2017 Durango Interior

When it comes to vehicle comfort, space tends to be the top priority. After all, no number of amenities can make up for a lack of room. However, in the 2017 Dodge Durango, you’ll have a healthy mix of both.

First and foremost, all passengers should have ample amounts of headroom and legroom to stretch out in. For instance, drivers will have 39.9 inches of headroom and 40.3 inches of legroom to make use of.

Next, you’ll have 47.7 cubic feet of cargo space. When you’re not hauling cargo, you can always stow it comfortably in the back of your SUV.

Lastly, you’ll have a host of different entertainment technologies, with the available Uconnect® 8.4 with navigation landing at the top of the list. Not only does this suite allow for major mobile integration, but it also comes with directions and traffic reports.

Staying Safe in Your Dodge Durango

For all the performance power and interior space that it offers, the 2017 Dodge Durango offers just as much passenger protection, starting with basic handling features like Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control. These features will ensure your vehicle stays on course, even when the roads are rough.

Next, you’ll have a wide variety of smart safety tech available, like Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop. With this piece of technology, your Durango can autonomously hit the brakes for you whenever it determines that a collision is imminent.

Lastly, you’ll have the advanced braking system on your side. With features like Rain Brake Support and Ready Alert Braking, you can come to a complete stop as suddenly as the situation warrants.
