2017 Dodge Durango Review
Style, safety, high-performance: These are all very important facets of Chicago, Skokie, and Park Ridge living. So, when choosing the right vehicle, you need something that aptly reflects these qualities.
At Marino Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, we believe the 2017 Dodge Durango is your perfect fit. And we’re going to show you why.
Looking for Interior Amenities?
Even when we’re on the go, we like to take some of the comforts of home with us. And when you’re riding in the 2017 Dodge Durango, you might just forget that you ever left.
When it comes to seating, drivers can choose from numerous trims: comfy cloth, if you’re looking for something functional, or Nappa leather, if you prefer a sleeker look. Heated, ventilated seats with 8-way power adjustment are available for front sitting passengers, as well.
As a driver, you’ll have several helpful benefits, from a dynamic steering wheel mounted with music, speed, and phone controls to the available tri-zone climate control. And when it comes time to shift, the ergonomic rotary e-shift will keep things smooth and responsive.
Second-row passengers will have a bit of control too, with the available backseat console. This feature includes vent controls, as well as a USB and charging port.
The Durango Has You Covered
With seating for up to seven passengers, there’s a good chance that the Durango will be your primary family vehicle. And if that’s the case, then you need to keep them safe. Luckily, it shouldn’t be much of a problem in this SUV.
For one thing, you’ll have an advanced brake system, which includes a few different features. In addition to standard Brake Assist, you’ll have Ready Alert Braking and Rain Brake Support, both of which can help you come to sudden, precise stops, even when it’s raining.
Several intuitive safety technologies are also available, including Blind Spot Monitoring. Use this feature in tandem with Back-Up Assistance to keep an eye on those hard-to-see areas around you. There shouldn’t be any more surprises on the road!
Performance You Can Rely On
Amenities and safety features are great, but the cherry on top of the Durango sundae is undoubtedly performance. You’ll regularly generate up to 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, thanks to the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 under your hood.
It’s all that muscle that helps take your towing to the next level. When properly equipped, you can haul up to 6,200 pounds of cargo. Features like Trailer Sway Damping and Electronic Stability Control then ensure that your vehicle stays on course.
The available all-wheel drive system is a major help in this area, too. If you’re the adventurous type, you’re going to be driving on some unfavorable roads from time to time. But your Durango will adapt with ease.
