2017 Dodge Durango
September 1, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The Dodge Durango's combination of uncompromised utility, advanced technology, class-leading towing and driving range, confident driving dynamics and aggressive styling make it the Dodge Charger of the SÚV segment. For 2017, Durango builds on its proven performance, utility and comfort with a new model, new appearance packages and a newly available soft-touch hand-wrapped instrument panel. Durango's standard eight-speed automatic transmission is paired with either the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine rated at an impressive 290 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, delivering up to 26 miles per gallon (mpg) and best-in-class towing capability of 6,200 pounds or the classic 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine that produces a best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque and class-leading towing capability of 7,400 pounds. The latest technology includes a programmable digital instrument cluster, available class-exclusive 9-inch dual screen Blu-ray and DVD player, available Beats premium audio system, 8.4-inch Úconnect touchscreen radio with navigation and, new for 2017, a function to view trailed items through the rear mounted camera while the Durango is in motion. Durango's available three-row seating offers spaciousness and flexibility with 85 cu. ft. of cargo capacity, 50 different seating configurations, including available second-row captain's chairs.

Highlights •A driver's SÚV, the 2017 Dodge Durango delivers excitement and modernized refinement thanks to its world-class suspension, structural refinements and performance driving characteristics, all of which are usually found on premium performance SÚVs at much higher price points
•The Dodge Durango's rear-wheel-drive-based drivetrain is the foundation for its outstanding on-road driving performance. Available all-wheel drive (AWD) further enhances driver confidence by leveraging the SÚV's 50/50 weight distribution. The Durango's two available AWD systems – one for the HEMI V-8 and one for Pentastar V-6 powered models – greatly enhance the vehicle's traction and handling
•While competitors have switched to front-wheel-drive car-based platforms, the HEMI®-powered all-wheel drive Durango features a low-range transfer case with a neutral position. Low range improves light off-road performance and helps ease maneuvers, such as pulling a boat up a steep launch or backing up with a trailer. The neutral position in the transfer case allows the vehicle to be flat-towed without damaging powertrain components
•Durango's standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine generates 290 horsepower (295 horsepower on Blacktop Package and Citadel) and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Equipped with the V-6, Durango can tow a best-in-class 6,200 pounds. In addition, engine stop start (ESS) is standard on the V-6 and lowers emissions while also saving fuel
•The 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine produces a best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque with a best-in-class tow rating of 7,400 pounds. Fuel Saver Technology with cylinder-deactivation seamlessly alternates between smooth, high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode and V-8 mode when more power is in demand
•The 2017 Dodge Durango features a standard eight-speed automatic transmission with rotary shifter and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters
•With standard five-passenger seating, optional seven-passenger seating and second-row captain's chairs available on all models, the seats in the 2017 Dodge Durango can be converted to as many as 50 different configurations
•Families with three or more children will find the Durango's available captain's chairs with pass through especially helpful as two car seats can stay latched into the second row seats, and there's still easy pass-through for passengers to walk between to get to the third row
•A versatile 60/40 split folding second-row seat conveniently folds and tumbles. Transporting long items, like 10-foot 2x4s, is not a problem as the left side of the second row folds 60 percent, allowing the versatility of folding the 40 percent seat in tandem with the front passenger fold-flat seat. To make passengers more comfortable, second-row seats also are available with heat, and they recline 18 degrees
•The third-row seat features a 50/50 split and is easily folded from the rear of the vehicle. For even more utility, both the second- and third-row seats fold to provide a flat load floor. A switch in the instrument panel remotely lowers third-row headrests when not in use
•Úconnect is available via either a standard 5-inch or available 8.4-inch touchscreen, the latter of which is the largest touchscreen in its class
•Durango offers a class-exclusive Blu-ray video rear entertainment system with two high-resolution 9-inch screens, one on each front seat back. Each screen allows customers to watch their movies on Blu-ray or standard DVDs or play their gaming systems via inputs for HDMI cables or RCAs for each screen integrated into the front seat backs. Wireless headphones are included as is a wireless remote
•The 2017 Dodge Durango offers consumers more than 60 available safety and security features, with seven standard airbags, including full-length three-row side-curtain airbags, standard front-seat mounted side-thorax air bags, front-row active head restraints, standard trailer-sway control and available forward collision warning with crash mitigation, adaptive cruise control with stop, Blind-spot Monitoring (BSM) and Rear Cross Path (RCP) detection, Úconnect Access with 9-1-1 call and roadside assistance
