The Dodge Durango - Big, Brawny, and Cozy

Big and brawny, the Dodge Durango doesn't try to hide its power. It embraces it and puts it on display for the world to see. From the rugged lines to the powerful styling, this SUV lets the world know that it's the boss. This rugged midsized SUV is comfortable for drivers and passengers alike, thanks in large part to its ample space. The third row is one of the few that actually has enough space for adults, making it easy for people to pack up all of their friends and go on an adventure.

The Durango is highly responsive, making for an agile ride across all terrains and in all conditions. It also has a powerful V8 engine that produces ample get-up-and-go, and it has one of the highest towing capacities in its competitive class. This makes this the perfect SUV for various situations. From loading up the family to hauling a trailer, it has you covered.

What's Changed with the 2017 Dodge Durango?

When a vehicle has been around for as long as the Durango has, it's normal to expect it to remain stagnant from one year to the next. The Durango has remained a popular option by constantly offering something new, though. That makes 2017 another exciting year for Durango enthusiasts. The year is packed with new features that make the SUV better than ever before.

The 2017 model welcomes a new trim to the lineup. Now, the Durango has a GT model. This trim replaces the Limited trim, and it is expected to be the most popular of all of the options. The GT has a 3.6-liter V6 engine that's paired with an 8-speed anatomic transmission. It also comes with leather seats and a monochromatic exterior. Consumers choose between rear- and all-wheel drive when they go with this trim.

This year also brings about some changes regarding the seating. Third-row seating used to be a standard feature for all of the trims, but now, drivers can choose what they want in regards to seating. The base SXT comes standard with two rows of seats that hold up to five people. A third row can be added onto the base option for those who want additional seating. All of the other trims come standard with three rows of seats, so you can choose which one fits into your lifestyle. You can go as big or small as you want with the 2017 Durango. You will also notice an exciting change on the trims that include the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen. When you are towing a trailer, your rear camera will show the trailer as long as the vehicle is moving. This makes towing quite a bit easier.

History of the Dodge Durango

With so much happening for 2017, it can be easy to forget that the Durango has been around since 1998. There have been three generations of Durangos. The first generation went from 1998-2003. This generation was the trendsetter. It proved that SUVs could be just as rugged and sturdy as trucks. The second generation hit dealerships in 2004. It was taller, wider, and longer than the first generation, and it rubbed shoulders with full-sized SUVs. This generation offered third-row seating, making it a popular choice for families.

Dodge released teaser pictures of the third generation in 2010 and finally started production in December of that same year. It upgraded the engines and introduced new safety features. The third generation proved to be the best Durango yet, and it has gotten people excited about the future. What will the next generation bring? Only time will tell, but for now, people are very happy with the third generation of the SUV.
