2018 Dodge Durango Review
The 2018 Dodge Durango is one impressive vehicle. This midsize SUV offers all the power you’d want from a sports car as well as the comfort, space, and convenience features you need to take on your exciting life in Dallas, Garland, or Arlington. In this review, we at Dallas DCJR will introduce you to some of the most impressive features and capabilities offered by the 2018 Dodge Durango. Let’s get started by taking a peek under the front hood!
The Dodge Durango offers three high-powered engines, all boasting some impressive capabilities. Standardly, the Durango is led by a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine that comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This duo delivers a respectable 295 horsepower while achieving an EPA-estimated 26 highway/19 city MPG. For more power, you can opt for either of the Durango’s available engines, including the 360-horsepower 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine or the 475-horsepower 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine. When equipped with the latter engine and other optional equipment, the Durango is capable of towing as much as 8,700 pounds of trailer weight. Working alongside these engines is a transmission that can keep up. This standard class-exclusive1 electronic 8-speed automatic transmission optimizes both efficiency and acceleration. Make shifting even easier with available steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters for manual precision.
Comfy & Spacious Interior
Inside the 2018 Dodge Durango, you’ll have seven spacious seats to choose from, with two in the front row, three in the middle, and two in the back. These seats are standardly upholstered with plush cloth that can be replaced with available Nappa leather-trimmed seating surfaces for enhanced comfort. The Durango also offers a standard 3-zone automatic temperature control system to keep everyone comfortable. You can also opt for heated front and second-row seats as well as ventilated front seats. If you need more cargo space, though, you have more than enough ways to fit it in. The Durango offers more than 50 different seating configurations with all five rear seats being able to be folded down, if needed. Opting to fold them all down using the available 60/40 Fold & Tumble second-row seat and 50/50 split-folding third-row seat will get you an incredible 84.5 cubic feet of cargo space.
The interior of the 2018 Dodge Durango is not only spacious and comfortable, but it’s also fitted out with a variety of helpful and handy technology features. You’ll have a standard 7-inch Uconnect® 4 touchscreen infotainment system that provides standard Bluetooth® connectability, voice command recognition, and smartphone app integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Still, the Durango doesn’t stop there. Upgrade this model to the Uconnect® 4C NAV, which boasts these impressive features on top of turn-by-turn navigation, a bigger 8.4-inch touchscreen display, and live traffic and weather updates via SiriusXM® Traffic Plus and Travel Link™.
