Delivering a combination of SUV capability and crossover versatility, the new 2011 Dodge Durango premiers a number of new features, tons of added luxury, and heightened fuel economy, yet still puts out lots of power and performance. All-new both inside and out, this redesigned three-row SUV is powered by either a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine or an available 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with a multi-displacement system (MDS) four-cylinder mode that helps you save fuel. No matter which engine you choose, both come with variable-valve timing (VVT) and have all-wheel drive as an option. Coupled with the stiffened unibody structure, standard trailer sway control, and proper equipment, these engines allow you to haul up to 6,200 pounds with the V6 (a number that lets it attain best-in-class status) and up to 7,400 pounds with the V8. Yet, despite all this power and towing capability, Dodge attests that the 2011 Durango is surprisingly fuel efficient and will be able to travel 500 miles on a single tank of gas.
Designed by the same interior design studio that created the Dodge Ram's and Jeep Grand Cherokee's cabins, the 2011 Durango's three rows of seating feature refined soft-touch materials, no matter what trim level you choose. Over 22 seating configurations are possible, making it flexible enough to fit any lifestyle. The cabin comes with luxury details like cupholder lighting and small amounts of aluminum and chrome accents to further the visual and tactile appeal. Sporting 45 safety and security features, standard features include electronic stability control, front seat-mounted side air bags, side-curtain air bags that cover all three rows, and all-new active head restraints. Other new options on the 2011 Durango consist of Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Keyless Go.
Safety, luxury, comfort, power, practicality, and efficiency combine to make the 2011 Durango an SUV that anyone would love to own. If you are interested in the 2011 Dodge Durango and want to take a test drive, stop by our dealership or give us a call today!
