2019 Dodge Durango Review
The 2019 Dodge Durango is a muscular and engaging SUV that offers a range of powerful engines, a comfortable interior with plenty of cargo space, and an array of appealing technology features.
Drivers in Geneva, Penn Yan, and Watkins Glen can learn more about the 2019 Dodge Durango with our comprehensive model review.
Base Dodge Durango models use a 3.6-liter V6 that sends 293 horsepower to the rear or to all four wheels. A 5.7-liter V8 with 360 horsepower, and a 6.4-liter V8 with 475 horsepower are also available, which give the SUV a maximum towing capacity of 8,700 pounds. All engines mate to an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Despite its considerable size and muscular build, the Durango rides and handles like a much smaller crossover. It’s an entertaining drive on curving back roads, combining precise steering with strong brakes and remarkable balance. The optional all-wheel drive system makes it safe and reliable in virtually any weather conditions as well.
The Durango has a well-appointed interior with soft-touch surfaces and soft cloth, supple leather, or smooth suede, depending on the model. The front seats are firm and supportive with a range of adjustability, and both the second and third rows offer an abundance of headroom and legroom. Optional captain’s chairs in the second row reduce the capacity, but increase the comfort and roominess for the second row.
With all the seats upright, the Durango has 17 cubic feet of cargo space, which expands to 43.3 cubic feet with the third row folded. Fold both rows down and you’ll access the full cargo capacity of 85 cubic feet, which is enough for just about anything you need to haul. Several small storage compartments are scattered around the cabin as well, so passengers have space to stow their phones, wallets, and other small cargo.
The Durango is well-equipped at base level, complete with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, multiple USB ports, 3-zone climate control, and keyless ignition. From there, the options include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that features Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ smartphone integration, heated and ventilated seats, and towing features.
In addition to a standard complement of safety equipment like active head restraints and airbags, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Active Lane Control are all available. These features are helpful to increase visibility, which is a significant advantage in a larger SUV, and prevent potential collisions.
