What’s New for the 2016 Dodge Durango?
Durango’s standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine generates 290 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, and can tow 6,200 pounds. The 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine produces 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque with a best-in-class tow rating of 7,400 pounds, plus has an active Fuel Saver Technology feature. There is a standard eight-speed automatic transmission that gets 15 percent better fuel economy than the last transmission, with a rotary shifter and steering wheel mounted paddle shifters on all models. The Durango also features an Eco Mode to maximize fuel economy. ESS technology increases fuel efficiency by shutting the engine off when the vehicle stops, while simultaneously not interrupting the cabin’s processes. The four-wheel independent suspension, used together with the Durango’s close to 50/50 weight distribution, lends to an improved responsiveness. The Durango has a standard rear-wheel-drive-based drivetrain but has available an all-wheel drive (AWD) for both engines.
The 2016 Dodge Durango is available in four trim levels: SXT, Limited, Citadel, and R/T. Seven-passenger seating is standard on all, while second-row captain’s chairs are optional. The instrument panel features a center stack that houses the 5-inch and available 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreens. The instrument cluster has a full-color 7-inch (TFT) screen, an adaptive cruise control with stop, the newest Uconnect Access Via Mobile system, a dual-screen Blu-ray DVD system as well as a Wi-Fi hot spot. A 5-inch touchscreen is standard on SXT models while Limited, R/T and Citadel models (and available on SXT) have the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen.
On the SXT, standard features include four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes, an electronic stability program (ESP), trailer-sway control, automatic headlights, projector fog lamps, and tinted glass. On the inside, the SXT features standard three rows of seats with 60/40 split fold and tumble second row, 50/50 split, a folding third row, premium cloth seats, a fold-flat front passenger seat, and tri-zone automatic temperature control.
The Limited trim delivers all the standard features of the SXT and adds LED daytime running lamps, signal repeater mirrors, a 10-way power front passenger seat, a 12-way power driver seat with memory and power four-way lumbar adjustment, ParkSense rear park assist, ParkView rear backup camera, and a vehicle security alarm.
The Citadel is the ultimate in Durango luxury. Adding more to the Limited, the Citadel’s standard features include: the Uconnect Access voice-command 3D navigation and live streaming internet radio, remote start, 20-inch aluminum wheels, a power sunroof, automatic high-beam HID headlamps, and a power liftgate.
The 2016 Durango goes all out in terms of safety and preventative features. It offers more than 60 available safety and security features, including standard all-speed traction control and electronic stability control (ESC), and trailer-sway control, which enhances towing capabilities while keeping the alignment for both vehicle and trailer. Available safety and security features include Uconnect Access with emergency call and roadside assistance, Blind-spot Monitoring (BSM) and Rear Cross Path (RCP) detection. The forward collision warning system with crash mitigation alerts the driver if approaching a vehicle in front too quickly, and the adaptive cruise control with stop will keep Durango at a driver-selected distance from the vehicle in front when cruise control is engaged, and can even bring the SUV to a controlled stop.
