The 2020 Dodge Durango is a powerful SUV that delivers on the kind of performance you've come to rely on from a midsize SUV and has been out since the 1998 model year. Dodge took the original midsize pickup Dakota and converted it into an SUV, although now it uses the same platform as the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Built-in the heart of the Motor City, this SUV is the kind of vehicle that delivers on what you expect in a sports utility vehicle of its size: power, comfort, and durability. With several trim and engine types, the Durango will give the kind of drive desired by any SUV buyer.
The 2020 Dodge Durango comes with a number of trims and configurations. As is the case with other Dodge vehicles, you do have the ability to swap out several engines to better fit your driving and performance needs. This is one of the areas where Dodge excels, as many other manufacturers do not offer the kind of engine freedom as Dodge.
The entry-level Dodge Durango is the SXT. The base model is a rear-wheel drive SUV with an entry MSRP of $30,495. The SXT all-wheel drive version of the vehicle does boost the MSRP to starting at $33,095. There is also an SXT Plus RWD and AWD that starts at an MSRP of $34,590 while the AWD model has an MSRP of $37,190. These two vehicles are essentially the same, just with some slight color and internal features. The Durango GT has an initial MSRP of $34,645, which increases to $38,995 if you opt for the GT Plus. The AWD versions of the trim increase the MSRP to $37,245.
Moving up with the trims, there is the Durango Citadel with a starting MSRP of $42,995. There is also a Citadel Anodized Platinum (much like the SXT and SXT Plus the main difference between the Citadel and Citadel Anodized Platinum is with the color options). The next trim up is the RT, with an initial MSRP of $43,995, and topping out the trim options is the SRT AWD (there is no rear-wheel-drive version of the SRT). The entry MSRP for the SRT is $62,995.
There are several engine options available on the varying 2020 Dodge Durango trim packages. The entry SXT comes standard with a 3.6L V6 that produces 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This is one of the more powerful base engines you'll find dropped into an entry-level trim package of a midsize SUV. With the engine, the fuel economy runs around 19 miles per gallon in the city and 26 miles per gallon on the highway (the AWD version of the engine will see a slight decline in fuel economy to 18 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway). The same engine type is available on the SXT, SXT Plus, GT, GT Plus, Citadel, and the Citadel Anodized Platinum.
If you're looking to go with a larger engine, you'll want to upgrade to at least the RT. The RT trim package uses a 5.7L HEMI V8 engine. This larger engine will put out 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. The larger engine does see a decline in fuel economy to 14 miles per gallon in the city and 22 miles per gallon on the highway.
As for the largest engine available in the Dodge Durango, you'll find it in the SRT AWD trim package. With this design, you'll have a massive 6.4L premium V8 Hemi that produces 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Despite the significantly larger size of this engine over the RT, the fuel economy doesn't dip all that much. In the city, you'll net around 13 miles per gallon, and on the highway, the SUV will hit around 19 miles per gallon.
When considering a midsize SUV, you'll likely want a vehicle that has not only decent storage in the cargo area but can tow as well. Many manufacturers skimp on the towing specs, but not the 2020 Dodge Durango. You'll find some of the best-in-class towing numbers when compared to any other vehicle of its size.
The available cargo space is the same in all the trim levels. With the rear seat up, the vehicle comes with a solid 47.7 cubic feet of storage space; if you fold the rear seat down, the cargo volume increases to 84.5 cubic feet.
As for towing, the V6 engine offers a maximum trailering capacity of 6,200 pounds. If you were to upgrade to the RT trim, the maximum trailering capacity does jump significantly to 7,400 pounds. The top tier SRT AWD trim sees another large jump in its towing potential, maxing out at 8,700 pounds. But after all, with the kind of engine you have in the SRT, you'll be sitting behind the wheel of the fastest standard SUV on the market.
The 2020 Dodge Durango does come with a number of standard and optional safety specs. The SXT comes with a driver, front head, front side, passenger, and rear head airbags. The SUV also features 4-wheel ABS and 4-wheel disc brakes.
Other standard safety features on the 2020 Dodge Durango include brake assist, child safety locks, traction control, and electronic stability control. All of the trim packages have the same number of airbags and use the same brake designs. If you decide to go with the SRT package, the safety features on the SUV will include not only child safety locks, brake assist, electronic stability control, and traction control, but also auto-leveling headlights, daytime running lights, and integrated turn signal mirrors. You also have the option to include blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and lane-keeping assist.
There are a number of entertainment features available on all trim packages for the 2020 Dodge Durango. The base SXT comes with an AM/FM stereo, AUX input for connecting your favorite external audio devices that use a 3.5mm headphone jack, smart device integration via Bluetooth, and MP3 player. It also comes standard with an onboard hands-free communications system and wireless cell phone hookup.
If you were to go with the max trim SRT, you would see a sizeable jump in the kind of technology and features built into your SUV (the different trims in between will offer a varying number of these additional features). On the SRT the SUV does come standard with AM/FM stereo, AUX input, HD radio, satellite radio, MP3 player, smart device integration, a premium sound system, and WiFi hotspot (data package required). Having the WiFi hotspot is a major advantage, not only for listening to your favorite streaming services but for passengers looking to watch content on your tablets or who need to continue working on work projects. The SRT also features an onboard hands-free communications system, wireless cell phone hookup, and a navigation system.
There are several optional features found on the SRT. The optional upgrades you may be interested in include a CD player and an entertainment system. The entertainment system is a fantastic upgrade if you have children and you want to keep them busy with movies. Additionally, if you haven't purchased a new vehicle in a few years you may be surprised at the lack of a CD player, but most manufacturers are now moving away from the CD player and instead are focusing on bringing other technology into the center console of the vehicle (which is why it is now optional instead of standard).
Looking for convenience features that will help improve the quality of your time inside the vehicle? The Dodge Durango has these features in spades. The base package comes standard with a back-up camera, vehicle anti-theft system, variable speed intermittent wipers, keyless start, fog lamps, electrochromic rearview mirror, and auto-off headlights.
The top trim level comes with all the entertainment and convenience features you could hope for. It comes standard with an electrochromic rearview mirror, keyless entry, rain-sensing wipers, heated mirrors, universal garage door opener, remote trunk release, a heated steering wheel, remote engine start, rear parking aid, power liftgate, HID headlights, fog lamps, auto-off headlights, and a back-up camera. The top tier trim package also includes optional adaptive cruise control (which is fantastic when driving through traffic that is constantly speeding up and slowing down) and an interior cargo shade.
