Full Details Of The 2011 Dodge Durango
Dodge has recently released full information about the facelift 2011 Dodge Durango. Based originally on the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Durango has a very aggressive appearance with a prominent grille and “coke-bottled” styling. Joe Dehner, who is the chief designer of Dodge: “we took the performance car mantra from our own backyard and applied the formula to Durango. The Durango and Charger were designed at the same time, allowing the bold styling from the Charger to spill over to our all-new three-row SUV.”
The basic model, dubbed “Express” is offered with 18-inch alloy wheels, sapphire blue ambient lighting and automatic tri-zone climate control. For more money, you could get the “Crew” version that sports memory seats, an Alpine audio system, a power liftgate and a rear backup camera. For extra money, clients can get a rear-seat entertainment system and GPS navigation.
There is also a sportier version of the Durango, named “R/T” that sports a reduced ride height – lowered 20 mm, massive 20-inch aluminum rims as well as a monotone appearance. Clients can also get a collision warning system, heated seats (front + rear) and leather upholstery, for additional money.
If you prefer a more luxurious ride, Dodge offers the 2011 Durango in the “Citadel” version, which comes with 20-inch chrome wheels, a distinct front grille, heated steering wheel, HID – High Intensity Discharge headlights and perforated Nappa leather seats.
Clients can opt from one of the two engines available; a V6 3.6-liter capable of offering 290 hp (216 kW / 294 PS) and a 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) torque. With this engine, the Durango can tow up to 6,200 pounds (2,812 kg) and eats up 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway with the rear wheel drive activated. Using the all wheel drive system, it will do 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.
The other power unit is a HEMI 5.7-liter V8 that outputs 360 hp (268 kW / 365 PS) and a massive torque of 390 lb-ft (520 Nm). This powerful HEMI engine will do 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway, using the rear wheel drive. For the all wheel drive system, the figures are 13 mpg city and 20 mpg highway.
The 2011 Dodge Durango will begin sales in December at a base price of $29,195 with the destination charge included.
