An impressive design line is one of the appealing features of Chrysler’s 2011 Dodge Durango. An even more impressive feature of the new Durango is that is can travel more than 500 miles on a single tank of fuel. That distance covers Detroit to New York City or San Diego to San Francisco with having to stop for fuel!
Chrysler says the 2011 Dodge Durango has 45 security and safety features like front seat-mounted side air bags and standard side-curtain air bags that cover passengers in all three rows.
The new car also features all-new standard active head restraints. Also now offered as standard is the Electronic Stability Control system.
One of Chrysler’s new offerings also come with new engines like the standard fuel-efficient 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine and the more powerful 5.7-liter HEMI engine with fuel-saving, Multi-displacement system (MDS) four-cylinder mode.
Both engines are available with all-wheel drive and also with variable-valve timing (VVT). The manufacturer says the engines provide superior V6 and V8 towing capability: the V6 delivers 6,200 lbs and the V8 delivers 7,400 lbs. The new 2011 Durango, when fitted with the powerful V8 HEMI engine, can tow more weight than a 24-foot boat and trailer.
The redesigned interiors are done by the same interior design group that worked on the Ram truck and the new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Customers are likely to notice that the materials are refined and soft to the touch.
The new 2011 Dodge Durango will roll into showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2011 and will be available with Rear Cross Path detection, Blind-spot Monitoring, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning and Keyless Enter-n’Go.
