The Dodge Durango has established itself as a legend in the traditional SUV class over the past couple of decades. It was first introduced as a midsize SUV back in 1998 and lasted as such through the 2003 model year. From 2004 through 2009 it was briefly upsized to the full-size SUV segment, before taking the 2010 model year off and returning to the midsize SUV segment in 2011 with its current and third generation. While there aren’t a ton of traditional sport utility vehicles left on the market, the 2022 Dodge Durango continues to make its presence felt and show that they still have a place. If you’re in the market for a capable and stylish SUV in Topeka, KS, or the surrounding area, be sure to consider the Durango, available right here at Briggs Dodge RAM.
The Durango received a few updates and enhancements for the new 2022 model year. For starters, both Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection have been standardized across the board, while the Blacktop Package has added a performance hood to the GT trim level and performance all-season tires to GT and R/T models. In addition, SXT, GT, GT Plus and R/T Plus have added a ton of standard content.
The Dodge Durango lineup offers three different powertrain options, including a 6.4L HEMI V8 that delivers 475 horsepower and a 4.4-second 0-60 mile per hour acceleration time and a 5.7L HEMI V8 with 360 hp. Both of these engines also offer a best-in-class maximum towing capacity of up to 8,700 pounds! The third and final option is a 3.6L Pentastar V6 that generates 295 hp that can tow up to 6,200 lbs.
Customization is a big deal with the Dodge brand, so they offer quite a few packages that you can opt for to increase the amount of content or add unique design cues to your Durango. Packages include the R/T Tow n Go package, the SRT Black Package, the Blacktop Package and the Anodized Platinum Appearance Package. That last one adds a bunch of aesthetic upgrades in the form of platinum design cues.
