2022 Dodge Durango Kendall Dodge

The Dodge Durango is headed towards either a rebirth or an end at some point in this decade. While the fast and smooth SUV has been a long time staple of the brand, they might add the vehicle to its list of vehicles gaining an all-new platform and continuing to sell the Durango or cast off the vehicle altogether. A brand new platform or possibly and eventually end the Durango will happen later this decade by 2024. What we know today about the 2022 Dodge Durango is Dodge still has some tricks up their sleeve as the new 2022 model year is coming out soon. Dodge has decided to invest into a new EV muscle car and possibly leave the SUV segment behind. However, now we have learned what customers can expect with the sleek Durango.

What’s Instore For the 2022 Durango?

For owners of SUVs, they are used to handling a larger vehicle, but the three-row muscle SUV made by Dodge is not a typical SUV.  There will be exactly 5 trims sticking around for the 2022 model year including the base trim, the SXT, followed by the GT, R/T, Citadel, and SRT 392. Standard features included in the Durango offer blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-path detection. Both features were not present on the 2021 entry-level Durango SXT and were a $495 option on others, but alas, they are now included across each trim with purchase today. 

The Dodge Durango SXT adds a third row for standard seven-passenger seating instead of five-passenger, and in the front row, the driver’s seat comes standard with ParkSense rear park assist and bright roof rails. The GT gains heated front seats and steering wheel, remote start, and a power liftgate standard. The Plus Group is an option for the SXT and GT now will extend availability to the R/T trim. Dodge removed the SXT Plus trim, but more nifty perks are coming to the Durango. This is the time to buy our current Dodge vehicles.

Packages For the 2022 Model Year

The Durango Plus package will add Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop, Advanced Brake Assist, and Lane Departure Warning-Plus features. The 2022 Durango GT Plus supplements more equipment to incorporate seat memory, rain-sensing automatic wipers, bright cargo area scuff plates, leather seats with suede inserts, and second-row heated seats that are attractive features. The R/T Plus grants drivers Nappa leather with perforated inserts and accent stitching, a sunroof, Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Harman Kardon premium audio, and a Premium Interior Package with a wrapped instrument panel and a Dinamica soft-touch headliner.

The Blacktop Package is an option on the SXT, GT, and R/T will put the SRT performance hood for the GT trim. This package includes 265/50 performance all-season tires on both the GT and R/T trim options. According to Mopar Insiders, Dodge is ready to include four body color options; DB Black, Destroyer Grey, Octane Red, and White Knuckle are the color options that will be around for the 2022 Dodge Durango.
