The 2022 Dodge Durango is coming soon to our new inventory at Cochrane Dodge. It's a Dodge SUV that offers lots of functionality and the power of a muscle car. Releasing in the second half of 2021, the 2022 Durango returns with the same spirit in mind. This time it's lighter in overall weight and has a new three grille specialty design on the Hellcat series. Here are some more aspects that make the new Dodge Durango an excellent choice for your next SUV.

Engine Performance

The 2022 Dodge Durango has a rear-wheel drivetrain and a 293-horsepower 3.6-litre V6 base engine. When properly equipped, this year's Durango should have a maximum towing capacity of 9,000 pounds. The new Durango is a 4-door SUV that holds five passengers with a third row for extra space. It has 260 lb-ft of torque and an eight-speed automatic transmission. By upgrading to the higher trim levels, you can expect multiple V8 powertrains, along with a supercharger on the SRT Hellcat.

Safety Features

There is a backup camera and blind-spot monitoring for more awareness of other objects and motorists. The industry standard now of hill-start assist is included on the Durango, eliminating roll back as you lift off the brakes to proceed. It monitors your tire pressure as another standard inclusion for safety. You'll have lane keep assist and rear cross-path detection as well. Another great feature to make long road trips a breeze is the adaptive cruise control, keeping you at a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. If you ever need it, the forward-collision warning system will apply the brakes if you fail to do so. It's a solid vehicle for an SUV, offering lots of safety and practicality to make your commutes more enjoyable. The mere weight of the vehicle keeps most passengers safe in minor accidents. The seat belt system is excellent for children in the middle second row as well.
