Does exploring uncharted territory with the wind blowing through your hair as you deftly take one turn after another sound like fun to you? How about bringing along four of your favorite friends? If so, the Dodge Durango could be a great choice for your next car.
Here, we consider seven reasons to buy a used Dodge Durango.
1 – Powerful Engine: This strong SUV comes in three engine lines – a 3.6-liter V6 with 293 horsepower; a 5.7-liter V8 with 360 horsepower; and a 6.4-liter V8 with 475 horsepower. All three include eight-speed automatic transmission. Despite all that power, the Durango still manages a decent 19 mpg in the city and 26 on the highway on the V6 engine model and 14 city/22 highway on V8 engine models.
2 – Comfortable Ride: Even over rough roads and uneven terrain, the Durango offers a fairly smooth, and quiet, ride. Maneuvering is adequate and you’ll find that whether you’re embarking on a long road trip or quick mountain getaway, you’ll enjoy the ride.
3 – Roomy Interior: One of the most attractive features of the Durango is the cargo space it offers. With a full 17.2 cubic feet behind the third row, you’ll have plenty of room for gear, groceries, or both. Folding down the third and second row will give you 85.1 cubic feet to fill with whatever you are hauling. Best of all, the front passenger seat folds flat as well, allowing you to transport longer items with ease.
4 – Realistic Third Row: The Durango sports a roomier third row than many of its competitors. With the third row engaged, you can comfortably seat seven.
5 – Incredible Towing Capacity: At 8,700 pounds, the Dodge Durango boasts one of the highest towing capacities in the midsize SUV class. This feature adds unbeatable functionality to your ride.
6 – Easy to Use Infotainment System: Like many modern SUVs, the Durango’s infotainment system is intuitive. It includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth technology, two USB ports, voice controls, and accommodates both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If you search carefully, you can find an upgraded version that includes an 8.4-inch touchscreen, premium speakers, and Blu-ray/DVD system.
7 – Able to Handle Any Road with AWD: If added traction and maneuverability during adverse road conditions is important to you, be sure to look for used Dodge Durango models that include all-wheel drive (AWD). The other option you’ll see with Durango models is rear wheel drive.
