The 2019 Dodge Durango has its own special place in the automotive world. It can seat up to seven with adult-friendly space in the third row. There’s nothing else around that can match this combination of talents, especially at the Durango’s price level.
UCONNECT 8.4 – The Uconnect system in Dodge (and Chrysler and Jeep vehicles) is one of the best touch-screen-based infotainment setups. The latest version has a clean appearance with a user-friendly interface and comes with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.
3.6L PENTASTAR V6 WITH VARIABLE VALVE TIMING (VVT): CANADA’S BEST-SELLING ENGINE – Power and efficiency combine to create up to 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. When the vehicle comes to a complete stop, the Engine Stop/Start (ESS) technology shuts the engine off to help conserve fuel but keeps power flowing to amenities like the radio, gauges and climate control. The engine restarts automatically when the brake is released, allowing for seamless acceleration.
The standard 8-speed automatic transmission with Eco Mode provides superior efficiency, quick acceleration and smooth shifting. The performance-inspired steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters allow for a more personalized driving experience.
SPORT MODE – Sport Mode changes the steering calibration, pedal calibration and shift pattern, increasing the vehicle’s responsive driving experience.
Blacktop Package – Gloss Black details like 20-inch aluminum wheels, exterior badging, mirrors and grille give Durango’s muscular SUV stance a polished facade.
CAR & DRIVER Overview:
Dodge, the bad-boy brand of Fiat Chrysler, is home to some of the most tire-roasting, sideways-driving muscle cars in the automotive kingdom. An SUV with seating for up to seven doesn’t sound as if it would fit into that lineup, but the Durango easily earns its place alongside the Charger sedan and the Challenger coupe. Sure, there are more practical crossovers available, and more fuel-efficient ones, too, but the trade-offs are small. Sitting atop the Durango’s contoured dashboard is the most intuitive infotainment system around. A rear-seat entertainment system will keep the kiddos entertained while you bomb the back roads. When it comes to SUVs, the Durango offers the most swagger and charm in this humdrum segment, and that’s why we’ve named it to our CAR & DRIVER Editors’ Choice list multiple times.
VERDICT The only family-friendly crossover with muscle-car street cred.
