Style

Exterior + Interior Feel

The Durango is tough, but welcoming. The Durango’s classic cross-hair grille and athletic body stance give the vehicle an aggressive feel, but it's smooth and comfortable interior makes it feel inviting and comfortable. There is a major change when it comes to the style of the Durango that many are liking, three-rows is no longer standard on the base model. A two row, five seater Durango is the base model, with a third-row option. This is good for those who love the look and feel of the Durango, but may not need all those extra seats.

Standard Features

Some standard features even for the base model when it comes to exterior style include Dodge’s signature LED taillamp that goes across the entirety of the rear, projector fog lamps, and projector headlights. When you take a step inside the Durango you will find features including plush cloth seats, 50/50 split folding third row seats, and 50 different seating configurations that allow for up to 84.5 cubic feet of cargo space. As previously mentioned, the GT model is new and replaced last year's Limited model. The model is very similar, but now comes standard with upgraded 20-inch wheels and a dual exhaust system.

Available Options

Of course, with the exterior and interior there are other features available to add, many of which come standard on the R/T (the highest level trim). Some interior options like leather seats, heated seats, and a smart steering wheel are offered. Some exterior options include several different grille style options, daytime running LED headlights, heated mirror, and a roof rack.
