Dodge is planning a total assault on the status quo for the 2011 model year, and it all starts with the 2011 Dodge Durango. While the name may sound familiar, the 2011 Durango is nothing like the SUV of yore and marks an entirely new, fresh, forward-thinking era of Dodge design. With its stiffened unibody structure and optimal 50/50 weight distribution, Durango is engineered with the driving enthusiast in mind. The end result is a vehicle that delivers premium driving performance combined with SUV capability and crossover versatility.”
Beneath the hood, drivers are afforded all of the capability theyve come to expect from a SUV thanks to the impressive engine choices. Available standard is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with 6, 200 lbs tow capacity, fantastic fuel efficiency, and variable-valve timing (VVT). For those in need of a little more power, the legendary 5.7L HEMI® V-8 is also available and prepared to haul a staggering 7, 400 lbs. The interior has been completely revamped for 2011 to provide a ride experience that is as extraordinarily breathtaking as it is capable. Surfaces are smooth and soft to the touch while the dazzling driver display creates a visually stunning cockpit that youll find difficult to resign to just the garage. The cutting-edge amenities are complemented by modern safety features, including standard front seat-mounted side air bags, side-curtain air bags that cover passengers in all three rows, Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, and Forward Collision Warning.
Of course, perhaps the best part of this bundle of joy is that you wont have to sacrifice at the pump to enjoy it. Thanks to our dedicated team of engineers and our commitment to consumer values, weve managed to produce a capable, powerful, fuel-efficient vehicle that can easily travel 500 miles on a single tank. True, that means the trip to your mother-in-laws just got a lot more direct, but it also means driving up-state to the big game just got a lot less expensive.
The 2011 Dodge Durango will officially hit showrooms in the 4th quarter of 2010, so be sure to mark your calendars.
