2019 Dodge Durango Review

There's a lot of ground to cover on the roads of Ithaca and Watkins Glen. The brawny 2019 Dodge Durango may be just the midsize SUV you need for the job. With roaring engines and plenty of cargo space, this is a fun and practical way to get around Corning and Elmira.

The Dodge Durango is a monstrous machine unlike any other SUV on the streets. In the performance-tuned Durango SRT, you'll see up to 475 horsepower from a 6.4-liter HEMI® V8. You can race down roads easily with that kind of power-or tow up to 8,700 pounds.

The standard powertrain, a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6, makes for a thrilling drive itself, with 295 horsepower on tap. Meanwhile, the midrange 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 kicks out up to 360 horsepower. A smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission delivers power for every engine.

Near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution offers more traction on the roads. Plus, with standard Trailer Sway Control, you'll have more stability when you tow the family boat out to Seneca Lake!

Exterior Muscle for the Road

The exterior of the Dodge Durango makes clear this SUV's performance heritage. In the rear, a standard LED racetrack taillamp extends across the tailgate to form a seamless stretch of glowing red. Plus, available Mopar® Dual Stripes give the R/T and SRT trims a more aggressive, performance-oriented look.

Up front, projector headlamps light your way ahead. They bookend the split-crosshair grille, a signature Dodge feature that you can have with light or dark accents.

The Dodge Durango exterior comes with literal muscle, too. With the available Stow N Place® Roof Rack System, you can carry up to 150 pounds of added cargo on the roof. It's perfect for a pair of bikes!

Top-Tier Technology Features  

The Dodge Durango may lean retro when it comes to design, but its technology is as modern as can be. In the cabin, you'll find the Uconnect® infotainment system standard on all trim levels. You can control it via touchscreen or the simple sound of your voice.

It includes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, so you can send texts, access your playlists, and more from behind the wheel. An available navigation system gives you voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions to your destination.

Backseat riders can stay entertained as well with the optional dual-screen Blu-ray™ Entertainment System. Just pop in a movie and let your passengers enjoy the ride from their 9-inch HD screens!
