2017 Dodge Durango
If you like to drive something that stands out a little from the crowd, the 2017 Dodge Durango is a great choice. It’s classy and understated, for a full-size crossover SUV, but the big crosshair grille at the front lends an air of Dodge muscle that’s a little less subtle than many of its rivals. It’s as big and imposing as you’d want a vehicle of this size to look, but there’s a sportiness here that’s not often found in larger crossover. We like that the Durango keeps the fun while giving you the substance you want.
The 2017 Dodge Durango is a big vehicle with plenty of powerful presence even when it’s standing still, but the real power is clear when you put the engine to work. Every Durango comes standard with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with an impressive 290 horsepower, which is likely enough for most buyers. But if you do feel you need more, opt into the stunning 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 and all-wheel drive, which is available at all trim levels.
You’ll choose between five trim levels in the 2017 Dodge Durango lineup: SXT, SXT Plus, GT, the luxurious Citadel, and the top-of-the-line R/T. The V-6 is standard in all but the R/T, which instead gets the Hemi V-8 and all-wheel drive as standard equipment. On the base model, you’ll find power features, air conditioning, cruise control, 18-inch alloy wheels, a tilt/telescope steering wheel, and an AM/FM stereo with a USB port and an auxiliary jack. Admittedly, that’s pretty basic, but if you want luxury the Citadel will fit the bill with features like standard nappa leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, 20-inch alloy wheels, a heated and power-telescoping steering wheel, Uconnect navigation and a sunroof.
Depending on how you configure it, the 2017 Dodge Durango can accommodate five, six, or seven passengers. All of the passenger seats can be folded down to create more cargo space, and all the combinations mean that there are an astonishing 50 different seating combinations available in the Dodge. The Durango’s cabin is quite and refined, made from quality materials. Few crossovers can rival the 2017 Dodge Durango in space and comfort for passengers..
The 2017 Dodge Durango is an incredible option if you’re looking for a large crossover with seating for up to seven, but you don’t want to break the bank. With a sportier look than most crossovers, the Durango is not only nice to look at but fantastic to drive, with the power and features you need.
