A new Rallye Appearance Group is offered on the SXT trim, while the Crew gains heated front and second-row seating. R/T trims can be outfitted with heated and cooling Nappa leather seats, Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection. Second-row captain's chair seating is now offered on all trims.
Changes for the 2012 Dodge Durango 7-passenger SUV include revisions to the automatic transmission on HEMI V8-equipped models, a 1-mpg improvement in the V6 AWD highway fuel-economy estimate and the availability of second-row captain's chair seating. The Express trim is replaced by the SXT trim.
The 2011 Dodge Durango is all new from the ground up. Riding on a unit body platform (the old model was body-on-frame), the Durango is now a more solid, stable and quiet vehicle. The new Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine serves as the standard powerplant, with a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 as an option. In an attempt to please everyone, Dodge offers the Durango in four distinctly different trims: Express, R/T, Crew and Citadel.
Despite all the banter about the coming "crossover" SUV revolution, for those with serious towing and off-road adventure needs there is just no substitute for a full-blown, body-on-frame SUV. At the top of the power and comfort category is the Dodge Durango, a seven-passenger transportation system with a rugged and distinctive style, a fairly plush interior and the option of a HEMI V8 under the hood. Although not as large as a full-size Chevrolet Suburban, the Durango has grown large enough to compete head-on with such heavyweights as the Chevrolet Tahoe and Ford Expedition. Dodge's MDS (Multiple-Displacement System) technology helps lessen the pain at the pump, and alternative fuel fans will find a friend in the new 4.7-liter Flex Fuel V8 that can run on either gasoline or E85.
