Dodge Redesigning Durango for 2014

Due to the recent competition in the full-size and crossover SUV segments, Dodge is introducing quite a few upgrades to the 2014 model year. Much of the base of the 2014 Durango is shared with the popular Jeep Grand Cherokee. Changes to the interior include a new digital instrument panel that allows drivers to select their preferred view, as well as a shifting knob in the center console, rather than the usual lever. Passengers in the Durango's back seat will notice the video system is now in the seatbacks, rather than in a flipdown system from the roof. The Durango's exterior is seeing a few updates, as well, including a new grille, raised front bumper, projector beam headlights, LED running lights, and Dodge's signature racetrack taillights. As for changes under the hood, the SUV has been fitted with a new eight-speed automatic transmission, helping the Durango achieve a 9 percent greater fuel economy.

Standard on the Durango for 2014 is a 3.6 liter V-6 engine which generates 290 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, there is an option for a 5.7 liter V-8, generating 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. Durango still possesses its rear-wheel-drive, unlike many of its competitors, and it also has two available all-wheel-drive systems. Properly equipped, the V-6 Durango can tow up to 6,200 pounds, with the V-8 increasing that to 7,400 pounds. Trailer sway control is also standard on all Durango models. The 2014 Dodge Durango SUV will be available in five trim levels.
