2018 Dodge Durango Review

Some people purchase SUVs because their family is growing and they’re putting off buying an SUV for as long as they can, while others enjoy the rugged exterior and comfortable interior. Drivers in the Richmond, New Baltimore, and Detroit areas come from both schools of thought, and with the 2018 Dodge Durango, nobody is going to be disappointed.

Here at Dick Huvaere’s Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram of Richmond, WI we know that there are a lot of options in the SUV market. We’ll provide the details that are most helpful to assist in your decision making process and help you figure out if the Dodge Durango is your perfect vehicle.

2018 Dodge Durango: Seating Capacity and Cargo Room

The whole point behind buying an SUV is to provide yourself and your family with more room, right? The 2018 Durango boasts enough space for seven passengers, whether you’re packing the kids into the car for the annual family vacation or if you’re responsible for the work carpool.

All but one of the six trim models have a third row of seating, that is easily collapsible, giving you even more cargo space if you don’t need the extra seating. The Durango offers 17 cubic feet of space with all the seats up or enough to hold about four suitcases. With the third row collapsed, the space nearly quadruples, while dropping the second row allows for an astonishing 85 cubic feet of space.


In most models of the 2018 Durango, four out of six to be exact, drivers will have access to a 12-V Auxiliary Power Outlet. With this convenient feature, you’re able to use and charge your laptop, iPad, or anything that requires a traditional outlet, so you won’t have to worry about losing power while watching your favorite series on Netflix from the passenger seat.

Every model comes equipped with air conditioning that has three zone temperature control. For many people, this isn’t a must have, but when you think about not having to freeze in the front seat to make your kids stop complaining that they’re hot in the back, it’s a pretty attractive feature.

Performance and Towing Capacity

The Durango comes with one of three different engines; a standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6, a 5.7L HEMI® V8, and a 6.7L HEMI®. The 3.6L engine throws out 295 horsepower, one of the highest for an SUV of its size, while the other two offer 360 and 475 respectively. These numbers means that no matter which engine you choose, you’re not going to have any problem with power.

For the people who respect the rugged nature of an SUV, the towing capacity numbers are probably pretty important. The 2018 Durango boasts an impressive towing capacity range between 6,200 and 8,700, depending on engine selection.
