The Dodge Durango outmatches some pickup trucks with its maximum towing capacity, and it still boasts three rows of seats. But is it the right crossover for you? Are there other vehicles you should consider instead? Ryan ZumMallen of Edmunds takes a close look at the 2018 Durango and its essential equipment and highlights what you should know about towing with a crossover or SUV.
Usually, the majority of the very best options plans are hidden behind much more pricey trims with larger, thirstier engines. Dodge is democratizing its packages a bit with the new Durango GT Rallye Appearance Bundle.
The Dodge Durango GT Rallye Appearance Package adds sportier plannings to the GT trim, which, while not the base trim, still depends on Dodge’s V6 engine. Not only is the V6 much more reliable, its cost is substantially even more easily accessible.
The plan adds an efficiency hood, front fascia and LED haze lights, which are obtained from the V8-powered R/T as well as SRT models. The bundle will certainly set you back $1,495, and also it can be had in one of 7 shades: DB Black, Granite, In-Violet, Octane Red, Redline Red, Vice White and White Knuckle.
The Durango GT is offered in both rear-wheel-drive and also all-wheel-drive variants, with a starting rate of $37,895. Its V6 puts out 295 horse power as well as 260 pound-feet of torque. Despite the smaller engine, it could still tow a great deal– 6,200 pounds, to be accurate. Standard devices includes leather-trimmed seats, 2 rows of heated seats, a power liftgate as well as 20-inch black alloy wheels.
The Durango GT Rallye Appearance Package is available for buying currently, and Dodge kept in mind that it’s only available for a minimal time, but it really did not specify the length of time it’ll be available
