2014 DODGE DURANGO: As the full-size sport-utility vehicle (SUV) and crossover segments in the U.S. are showing tremendous growth, Dodge ups the ante with the new 2014 Durango, in five trim levels: SXT, Rallye, Limited, R/T and Citadel. Since Dodge re-introduced the Durango in 2011, it has continued to deliver excitement and refinement with world-class suspension and performance. For 2014, the Dodge Durango rear-wheel drive presents outstanding on-road driving performance. Available all-wheel drive (AWD) further enhances driver confidence by leveraging the SUV’s 50/50 weight distribution. Actually, there are two AWD systems – one for the 360 horsepower 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 and one for the 290hp 3.6L Pentastar V-6 powered models. This year, all Dodge Durango feature Chrysler Group’s new eight-speed automatic transmission with rotary shifter and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters as standard equipment. On models equipped with the Pentastar V-6 engine, the Durango can tow up to 6,200 pounds. When coupled with the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, the Durango offers trailer tow capability of up to 7,400 pounds – more weight than a 24-foot boat and trailer. Second-row captain's chairs are offered for the Durango, as well as nappa leather with ventilated front seats on R/T models. With standard seven-passenger seating and luxurious second-row captain’s chairs available on all models, the seats in the 2014 Durango can be converted to as many as 50 different configurations. There are more than 30 storage areas and a rear payload room of nearly 85 cubic feet that fits a six-foot couch with room for a coffee table. Obtainable technology on the Durango R/T and top-of-the-level Citadel is blindspot/rear cross path detection, as well as features such as Uconnect Web and rear-seat DVD entertainment system. There are eight exterior paint colors to select from including two new shades, Deep Cherry Red and Bright White. Dodge Durango is built at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit.
