New 2017 Dodge Durango at Brown's Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for Patchogue, NY
The 2017 Dodge Durango trims all have quick acceleration times, impressive towing capacity, 3rd-row seat options, and low-range gearing on the 4-wheel drive versions. The 2017 Durango by Dodge is a crossover SUV with staying power, and is ready to provide reliable driving dynamics and robust fuel economy. Drivers can add a third seat into the back row as an alternate set-up, depending on the model, to create seating for seven occupants! New for 2017 is the GT trim in its monochromatic exterior style, which replaces a previous trim. The Citadel trim focuses on luxury, with an available Anodized Platinum package that involves two-tone leather upholstery accented by silver stitching. Also, in Durango models that opt for the available 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, there is a motion-activated rearview camera inherent to it, that assists in viewing the trailer (and its status when driving). The R/T model crowns itself with new roof rails that are painted black. The SXT trim has your choice of second-row seating, another new possibility in 2017.
Under the Durango's Hood
Prospective buyers can put either a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine inside with Fuel Saver Technology, or a Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 that gets to 260 lb-ft of torque with its 290 horsepower. The HEMI V8 engine uses 360 horsepower to arrive at 390 lb-ft of torque. The Durango is rear-wheel drive and usually employs an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard, but owners can arrange for an all-wheel drive set-up as a choice. The 3.6-liter engine tows 6,200 pounds and can see 26 miles per gallon on the highway, 19 mpg city and 21 mpg combined. The EPA found that the AWD-style 2017 Dodge Durango saw 25 miles per gallon highway, 18 mpg city and 21 mpg combined. There is the potential, on all Durango models, for the 'Trailer-tow Group IV'. This particular package group assists with a 4- and 7-pin wiring harness, full-size spare tire, rear load-leveling shocks, a 220-amp alternator (if 5.7L V-8), a Class IV hitch receiver, and a heavy-duty engine oil cooler (if 5.7L V-8). This 2017 Dodge Durango can get your towing adventures accomplished: the 5.7-liter has a tow capacity of 7,400-lbs!
Design of Dodge Durango
The Durango creates about 85 cubic feet of cargo space and can seat five to seven passengers, depending strongly on seating choices. There are four Durango models: the R/T, Citadel, SXT, and the GT. There are 3 rows normally, but captain's chairs can be put in place of the standard second-row bench seat. The Citadel trim brings xenon headlights (which are brighter than halogens) and an exterior accented well with chrome trim. The GT model rolls big with 20-inch wheels, and there is an available Blu-ray video entertainment system that is highly recommended. The Blu-ray video entertainment system put in two 9-inch screens that play high-resolution DVDs and can work for video games that passenger's plug in. There are 18-inch alloy wheels on the SXT trim, which then elaborates with tri-zone climate control, heated mirrors, a rear suspension that self-levels, a 6-speaker audio system, Bluetooth phone connectivity, a 5-inch touchscreen, keyless ignition/entry, and several other great points of interest to explore. Packages are the name of the game with the 2017 Durango, and owners can pick either the Brass Monkey or Blacktop "appearance" packages for the R/T and GT models!
What does the Brass Monkey package contain?
The Brass Monkey package has a split crosshair grille that gets painted Gloss Black and aluminum 20-inch 'burnished bronze' color wheels. It is an option on the G/T and R/T models.
