2014 Dodge Durango Priced at $30,790

Dodge’s revised three-row SUV goes up in price for 2014.

The Dodge Durango is significantly updated for 2014, and it also receives a new price. Dodge announced today that the 2014 Dodge Durango will start at $30,790 for the base SXT model, up $300 from 2013.

For 2014, changes to the Dodge Durango include a new front fascia, racetrack LED taillamps, and a revised instrument panel and center stack design inside. Mechanically, the 2014 Dodge Durango carries over the 290-hp, 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 and 360-hp, 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, but both engines will now be paired with an eight-speed automatic on all models. This combination should improve fuel economy by nine to 15 percent, Chrysler says, which should mean EPA ratings of approximately 18/25 mpg city/highway for V-6 models and 15/22 mpg city/highway for V-8 models. Both V-6 and V-8 models are available in rear- or four-wheel-drive configurations.

The 2014 Dodge Durango is available in five trim levels, including SXT, Rallye, Limited, R/T, and Citadel. The Limited model is new for 2014, the Rallye model replaces the Crew model, and the R/T and Citadel models receive price increases of $2500 and $1000, respectively. Chrysler says these raised prices are met with a barrage of new standard and optional features, including Bluetooth, paddle shifters, numerous available active safety technologies, and the aforementioned racetrack taillights.

The 2014 Durango Rallye, which starts at $33,985, adds five hp to the V-6 engine for a total of 295 hp, along with special wheels and body color exterior trim for a sportier appearance. The Limited model adds leather seats, an 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment screen, LED daytime running lamps, heated seats, and other features for $36,990. The R/T model carries a price of $39,990 and is the sportiest Durango model, with the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, a sport-tuned suspension, performance tires, and a slightly lower ride height. At the top of the Durango range sits the Citadel, which starts at $41,990 and adds Nappa leather, heated and ventilated front seats, navigation, remote start, a power sunroof, and more.

The 2014 Dodge Durango is one of the more expensive three-row SUVs in its class, with the value leader being the $29,455 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe. Check out the chart below to see how the Durango stacks up against the competition.
