200 units of the 2011 Dodge Durango reach their dealerships

Article by Christian A., on January 16, 2011

Chrysler announced that 200 units of the 2011 Dodge Durango were given to the representatives of about 150 dealerships, in a major driveaway event that took place at the MGM Grand Hotel in Detroit. The 2011 Dodge Durango was introduced in September 2010 and it is based on the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s platform.

The Durango has a starting price of $29,195. There will be two engine options: the 3.6l Pentastar V6 and the 5.7l Hemi V8.

These units use variable-valve timing (VVT) and are offered with all-wheel-drive. In a statement, Chrysler said that early dealer feedback has been “great” as loyal current owners are eager to rediscover the Durango.

Chrysler said that the original right-sized three-row SUV has been “reborn” with a remarkable design and a performance-tuned suspension. It’s also no understatement that the new Durango is safe.

In fact, it’s one of the safest models in years, installed with 45 safety systems, including airbags, Electronic Stability Control, Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control and Keyless Enter-n' Go.

The car takes inspiration from the new Grand Cherokee, including the interior. We’ll know soon enough if customers will perceive the car as a slightly revised and rebadged Jeep model. Production of the 2011 Dodge Durango began in December 2010 at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant (JNAP) in Detroit.
