Dodge Durango Towing Capacity
The Dodge Durango is one powerful SUV. Both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available and each will deliver some impressive performance and capability.
Since towing is a top-of-mind priority for potential Durango drivers in Chicago, Skokie, Park Ridge, or Forest Park, Illinois, we at Marino Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram wanted to highlight the towing metrics that are available on this vehicle. Read on to learn more about the awesome towing capacities!
Dodge Durango Maximum Towing Capacity
With the Dodge Durango, you will be able to tow cargo that weighs up to 8,700 pounds. This exceptional power is delivered through multiple engine options that are either available or standard on certain trim levels. These engine options include the following:
- 5.7L HEMI® V8
- 6.4L HEMI® V8
- Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® V8
The 5.7L engine comes standard on the R/T trim and can typically tow up to 7,400 pounds. However, when you equip it with the available Tow N Go Package, now you’re able to reach the maximum amount of 8,700 pounds. This engine continues its power with 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque.
Moving onto the 6.4L engine, you’ll find this on the SRT 392 trim, which is only available in an all-wheel drive configuration. This engine again reaches 8,700 pounds of towing capacity and can produce up to 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
The Supercharged 6.2L engine really knocks it out of the park with power. You’ll find this one standard on the highest trim level, the SRT Hellcat, which also is only available in all-wheel drive. In addition to the maximum towing capacity of 8,700 pounds, it will also get you an incredible 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque.
Dodge Durango Other Towing Capacities
Although the Durango has a maximum towing capacity of 8,700 pounds, other amounts are available from another engine and on certain trim levels that may be better suited to your lifestyle.
For example, the base trim comes with the 3.6L PentaStar® V6. This engine can reach a maximum towing amount of 6,200 pounds and produces up to 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. These metrics are the same whether you choose the rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive format.
The 5.7L engine mentioned in the previous section is also available on the Citadel trim, where it can deliver some impressive towing potential. The amount is slightly different depending on whether you opt for the rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configuration. With all-wheel drive, the engine can get you 7,200 pounds of towing. With rear-wheel drive, you’ll get a little more at 7,400 pounds.
Dodge Durango Cargo Volume
Being able to tow your equipment is great, but there may be certain items you want to keep protected from the outside elements. In that case, you’ll want to utilize the interior cargo volume to store what you need.
Inside the Dodge Durango, you’ll be able to fold down the rear seats to access a maximum volume of 85.1 cubic feet. This way, you’ll have plenty of room to store such things as luggage or other essentials so that they all arrive safely to your next destination.
