What doesn’t the 2016 Durango offer? Ultimately, not much. See all that this SUV can deliver below…
Avail. Cargo Space
A sports utility vehicle should offer some athleticism. After all, an SUV isn’t all that “sporty” if it isn’t capable of pumping out muscle. Luckily, the 2016 Dodge Durango truly lives up to the segment’s name.
Each of the Durango’s two engine options pumps out a sufficient amount of power, leading to some incredible towing capacities. Unbelievably, these units are just as efficient, a quality you don’t often see from powerful, hulking SUVs.
Unsurprisingly, Dodge’s engineers modified the accompanying mechanics to cater to the Durango’s power. That way, drivers can be assured that they’re receiving an optimal driving experience.
Each of the Durango’s two engine options will provide all of the power an SUV owner could possibly be seeking, and drivers will even be surprised by the units’ solid efficiency.
For starters, the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine pumps out a ton of power (295 horsepower and 260 pounds-feet of torque) for a standard option, and drivers will be able to take full advantage of the 6,200-pound towing capacity. The class-exclusive eight-speed automatic transmission and the Variable Valve Timing technology both play a significant role in improving the system’s efficiency. Drivers can expect the V6 to deliver a 27 highway mile per gallon efficiency on rear-wheel-drive models, and a 25 highway mpg on all-wheel-drive models.
If drivers are seeking more power, the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine is the logical option. The system pumps out 360 horsepower and 390 pounds-feet of torque, leading to a best-in-class 7,400-pound towing capacity. While efficiency is often compromised in such powerful engines, the Variable Valve Timing, Fuel Saver Technology, and eight-speed automatic transmission help the Durango deliver 22 highway miles per gallon, the best V8 efficiency in the class.
While all drivers appreciate a powerful and capable engine, they also need a ride that can easily compensate for all of that muscle. The Durango’s mechanics more than account for the athleticism of the SUV, and that can be attributed to a number of systems and parts hiding under the hood.
For instance, that previously-mentioned eight-speed automatic transmission makes for easy shifting of gears, and drivers will find that they can easily switch between settings for an optimal riding experience. If drivers would prefer, they can opt to switch their speed via the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Additionally, the 50/50 weight distribution helps improve traction while accelerating, while the Trailer Sway Control allows drivers to keep tabs on their hauled cargo.
The 2016 Dodge Durango is generally considered one of the more affordable SUVs on the market. However, that doesn’t mean that customers shouldn’t expect style and comfort from their new ride.
The new SUV includes a number of interior features, highlighted by the versatile and roomy cargo space. The Nappa leather seats add some luxury to the ride, while the three-zone automatic temperature control will allow the passengers to sit in their optimal comfort level.
On the outside, the inclusion of new LED lights helps give the Durango a distinctive, eye-catching look. The various wheel options accentuate the athleticism of the ride.
Drivers generally expect a whole lot of interior room from their SUV, and there’s no denying that the Durango delivers in that respect. Besides being able to fit seven passengers, the 2016 model offers more than 50 different seating combinations, so drivers can manipulate their interior to fit both occupants and luggage. If owners want to maximize their interior space, they can manipulate the fold-flat front passenger seats, the 60/40 fold-and-tumble second-row, and the 50/50 split-folding third-row to unlock 84.5-cubic-feet of cargo space.
Of course, the interior offers a whole lot more than roominess. The amenity options are highlighted by the cloth or Nappa leather seats, as well as innovative inclusions like the illuminated cup holders. Finally, the three-zone automatic temperature control will adjust your interior’s temperature for a pleasant driving experience.
The stylish Dodge Durango is made even more eye-catching due to the inclusion of innovative exterior lighting. The class-exclusive LED racetrack taillamps use close to 200 LED lights to form a “ribbon” of brake lights. Up front, the projector headlights and LED daytime lamp lights will provide excellent visibility for the driver. The Durango even comes available with automatic high-beam control headlamps, so drivers don’t have to continually finagle their lights to cater to other drivers.
These lights are the perfect complement to an already-stylish exterior. The large front grille gives the SUV an air of intimidation, while the sudden curves give the Durango a distinct look. The nine available wheel options are the cherry on the top of the breathtaking 2016 Durango.
Like any vehicle released in 2016, the Dodge Durango is full of the latest technology. The interior offers several innovative, high-tech features, highlighted by the 8.4-inch Uconnect system, which is accompanied by a BeatsAudio sound system.
Meanwhile, there are plenty of technological features found beneath the surface, and these amenities play a role in keeping your new SUV (and its occupants) safe and secure!
Like many of the brand’s vehicles, the Dodge Durango is chock full of technological amenities. The class-exclusive 8.4-inch Uconnect system provides everything a driver and passenger could possibly need from an infotainment center, including access to music (which can be enjoyed via the available BeatsAudio Premium nine-speaker Sound System), navigation, and even nearby fuel prices! The unit also provides WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities, so any of the Durango’s occupants can continue to stay on the grid.
Your younger occupants will surely appreciate the dual-screen Blu-Ray and DVD entertainment system. The pair of nine-inch screens will allow these passengers to enjoy their favorite technology via the High-Definition Media Interface. Whether they want to watch a movie or plug in their preferred game console, it’s all possible in the 2016 Durango.
When you’re dealing with a powerful engine (and an SUV full of passengers), you’re going to be relying on the ride’s safety features to keep everyone safe and secure. Luckily, the Durango offers a number of functions that will keep your new ride out of harm’s way.
Several technologies, like the Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop, will prevent your vehicle from being in an accident in the first place. When the driver needs a break, they can rely on the ACC feature to take over. Using radar sensors, the vehicle will determine when your vehicle is getting too close to another car. The technology is capable of bringing your Durango to a complete stop, so you can truly leave your vehicle’s operations up to the SUV. Other features like Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking and the Blind Spot Monitoring system will also keep your new SUV out of harm’s way.
If a driver does find themselves in an accident, the UConnect Roadside and Emergency Assistance will be there to help. With a push of the ‘ASSIST’ button, drivers will receive the guidance they need to get their Durango back on the road. If emergency personnel is necessary, the’9-1-1′ button will connect the driver with the police, fire department, or EMS.
