2014 Dodge Durango rated by EPA at 25 mpg highway

Article by Christian A., on October 6, 2013

Major upgrades were given to the 2014 Dodge Durango, which is on sale now. All models get a new eight-speed automatic. Because of this new transmission, the 2014 Durango is able to offer considerably improved EPA mileage ratings, enabling the rear-wheel-drive, six-cylinder 2014 Dodge Durango models to accomplish ratings as high as 18/25/20 mpg city/highway/combined.

Compared to the equivalent 2013 Dodge Durango, the new Durango has a higher rating by up to two mpg city and highway. The 2013 Durango had a rating of 16/23/19 mpg city/highway/combined when powered by the Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine and rear-wheel-drive. On the other hand, the 2014 all-wheel-drive Durango V-6 models are better than last year’s models with a 17/24/19 mpg rating.

A 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 partnered to the eight-speed transmission is also offered on the 2014 Dodge Durango. Better fuel economy is offered on the 2014 Durango V-8 models on the highway, with rear-wheel-drive models getting ratings of 14/23/17 mpg and all-wheel-drive models getting 14/22/16. In comparison, the 2013 lineup recorded a highway rating of 20 mpg for both rear- and four-wheel-drive V-8 models.

Because of the better fuel economy, the 2014 Dodge Durango became more competitive against the three-row crossovers such as the 2014 Chevrolet Traverse, the 2014 Ford Explorer, and the 2014 Honda Pilot. When compared with these models, the rear-wheel-drive V-6 2014 Durango has the same highway fuel economy as the front-wheel-drive, V-6 Pilot model.

However, it does better than the front-wheel-drive, V-6 Traverse and Explorer, which both have a highway rating of 24 mpg. The 2014 Dodge Durango has a starting price of $30,790 (including destination costs). It is currently available with five trim levels, namely: SXT, Rallye, Limited, R/T, and Citadel. The 2014 lineup also has the following improvements: a new front fascia, LED “racetrack” taillights, and a modified interior design.
