The 2011 Dodge Durango is all-new from the inside out. Sleek exterior design, spacious interior, fuel-efficient and powerful powertrain options combine with the stiffened unibody structure to create a vehicle that delivers premium driving performance, SUV capability and crossover versatility.
The all-new Durango features two engine options: the standard fuel-efficient 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and the available 5.7-liter HEMI engine with fuel-saving, Multi-displacement system (MDS) four-cylinder mode. Both engines feature variable-valve timing (VVT) and are available with all-wheel drive.
In addition to great efficiency, the engines provide exceptional V-6 and V-8 towing capability with standard trailer sway control (V-8 – 7,400 lbs. and Best-in-class V-6 – 6,200 lbs.). When equipped with the HEMI® V-8, the all-new Durango can tow more weight than a 24-foot boat and trailer.
The Durango’s all-new interior is a surprise owners always deserved but never expected. Everywhere they touch, Durango passengers will feel materials that are refined and soft to the touch. And with 22 different seating configurations, there’s a lot of room to store and move plenty of people and their gear.
The all-new 2011 Dodge Durango also offers consumers 45 safety and security features, including standard front seat-mounted side air bags and standard side-curtain air bags that cover passengers in all three rows. All-new standard active head restraints and Electronic Stability Control also is standard. Other available safety and security technologies include Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control and Keyless Enter-n’ Go.
But the last, and perhaps the most impressive development on the Durango is the excellent fuel efficiency. In fact, drivers can go more than 500 miles, that’s the distance from San Diego to San Francisco or from Detroit to New York City, without having to stop for fuel.
The new 2011 Dodge Durango arrives in showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2010. Stop by Pomoco Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Newport News to learn more.
