V6, 5.7L V8 HEMI
The all-new 2011 Dodge Durango revives the Durango nameplate
which was discontinued in 2009.
The 2011 Dodge Durango SUV is a three-row vehicle spacious enough
to carry the entire crew - or family - and offer a decent amount
of performance too. Especially if you opt for the V8 HEMI engine.
The new Durango features a sleek design which is modern, spacious
and a bit BMW X5-ish. And the changes are more than skin deep.
The Dodge Durango's stiffened unibody structure is engineered
with the driving enthusiast in mind. The end result is a vehicle
that delivers premium driving performance combined with SUV
capability and crossover versatility.
The all-new Durango features two engine options: the standard
fuel-efficient 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and the available
5.7-liter HEMI engine with fuel-saving, Multi-displacement system
(MDS) four-cylinder mode. Both engines feature variable-valve
timing (VVT) and are available with all-wheel drive. In addition
to great efficiency, the engines provide exceptional V-6 and
V-8 towing capability with standard trailer sway control (V-8
- 7,400 lbs. and Best-in-class V6 – 6,200 lbs.). When equipped
with the HEMI V8, the all-new Durango can tow more weight than
a 24-foot boat and trailer.
The Durango's all-new interior was created by the same interior
design studio that designed the much-lauded interior in the
Ram trucks and the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Durango's
luxurious interior materials and thoughtful touches will make
owners and their crews want to jump in, hunker down and thoroughly
enjoy even the longest drive. Everywhere they touch, Durango
passengers will feel materials that are refined and soft to
the touch. Not only is it a pleasure to behold, it is extremely
functional and gives owners a first-class experience, regardless
of the trim level. Durango's interior is also extremely comfortable
for all three rows of passengers, and there's a surprising amount
of interior flexibility. With 22 different seating configurations,
there's plenty of room to store and move plenty of people and
The all-new 2011 Dodge Durango also offers consumers 45 safety
and security features, including standard front seat-mounted
side air bags and standard side-curtain air bags that cover
passengers in all three rows, as well as all-new standard active
head restraints. Electronic Stability Control also is standard.
Other available safety and security technologies include Blind-spot
Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, Forward Collision Warning,
Adaptive Cruise Control and Keyless Enter-n' Go.
The best part is, consumers will get all of the all-new Durango's
capability, functionality and flexibility and still get excellent
fuel efficiency. In fact, drivers can go more than 500 miles,
that's the distance from San Diego to San Francisco or from
Detroit to New York City, without having to stop for fuel.
The 2011 Dodge Durango will be built at the Jefferson North
Assembly Plant in Detroit.
