2019 Dodge Durango Performance Review
One of the first things you notice about the 2019 Durango is that it has plenty of muscle. Exactly how much, however, is up to you. You have your choice of three different engines:
- 3.6L Pentastar® V8: 295 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque
- 5.7L HEMI® V8: 360 horsepower, 390 lb-ft of torque
- 6.4L HEMI® V8: 475 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque
If you’re looking for an engine that’ll get you farther between fill-ups, you’ll probably like the 3.6L engine that achieves an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 MPG city and 26 MPG highway.
On the other hand, if you have a hefty load to tow, you’ll probably prefer either of the HEMI® engines. The 5.7L engine can tow a maximum of 7,400 pounds when properly equipped, while the 6.4L engine increases that capacity to 8,700 pounds when properly equipped.
All three engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission with electronic T-shifter. Steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters are available as well for those times you want to take control without taking your hands off the wheel.
Dodge Durango Interior
Inside the 2019 Durango, you’ll find a spacious and versatile cabin. This SUV is available with seating for five, or seating for seven with an optional third-row. The second-row seats feature a 40/60 split and the third-row seats can be split 50/50 to optimize space between passengers and cargo.
Speaking of cargo, the Durango can accommodate a total of 85.1 cubic feet of it with the second and third rows folded down flat.
You can decorate your interior to your liking, as well, with a choice of seven different color options, including:
- Radar Red
- Light Frost Beige
- Demonic Red
You can also choose from materials like Caroline Mesh/Double Cross cloth, Nappa leather, or Laguna leather with Silver accent stitching.
2019 Durango Safety Technology
As you make your way around town or hit the highway in pursuit of adventure, you can count on a selection of safety technology systems to help keep you safe and aware of your surroundings.
Every model comes standard with Rain Brake Support, for example. This system automatically activates when the windshield wipers are in operation and helps to keep your brakes at their best by applying a small amount of pressure to the calipers to remove water from the brake pads.
Smart safety technologies like Blind Spot Monitoring is available, as well. This system helps you merge safely by alerting you to other cars in your side and rear blind spots.
If there’s an unseen hazard ahead of you during your drives, available Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus can also help by issuing a warning to slow down. This system can also hit the brakes for you, if necessary, to try to prevent an impending collision.
