2012 dodge durango Reviews and News

2012 Dodge Durango
2012 Dodge Durango
The Durango was redesigned for 2011 with new exterior styling and a surprisingly luxurious interior. Because of that top-to-bottom makeover, the Durango returns for 2012 with few changes. It does offer some improvements, however, including better fuel efficiency for V-6 AWD models, second-row captain's chairs, and a few new exterior color choices. Behind the signature cross-hair grille lie Chrysler's fuel-efficient 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and a five-speed automatic transmission, which come standard. A 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 is optional, and it brings with it a new six-speed automatic transmission. Towing capacity is rated at 6200 and 7400 pounds for the two powertrains, respectively, and rear- or all-wheel drive is available with either engine. The Durango's unibody construction is similar to that of the Mercedes-Benz M-class and the Jeep Grand Cherokee and is a welcome contrast to the old body-on-frame chassis that punished occupants of the previous Durango. The interior features three rows of seats with room for seven, and drivers will appreciate items such as adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection, and forward collision warning. The Durango might be the Dodge that most successfully combines SUV capability, crossover versatility, and carlike performance.
2012 Dodge Durango Special Service Front Three Quarter
There's been a lot of fanfare about the newest crop of police sedans including the Ford Police Interceptor, Chevrolet Caprice, and Dodge Charger, but there are also options for police officers who need to carry more than just a couple of computers and the occasional bad guy. The Dodge Durango Special Service, the newest of those options, was just announced today by Chrysler.
2012 Dodge Durango Citadel Rear Three Quarter
After the company launches a diesel version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chrysler Group may also fit a diesel engine in the Dodge Durango SUV and next-generation Ram Dakota pickup. According to Ward’s Auto, light trucks will probably be the other Chrysler vehicles with diesels in the U.S. market.
