2019 Dodge Durango and Durango SRT
Posted on July 30, 2020
The 2019 Dodge Durango line-up offers a combination of uncompromised utility, advanced technology, class-leading towing and driving range, confident driving dynamics and aggressive styling. Dodge continues to upgrade the five Durango models, SXT, GT, Citadel, R/T and SRT, offering proven performance, utility and comfort with the SRT model, plus appearance packages, an available soft-touch hand-wrapped instrument panel, and other enhancements across the line.
Powerful Engines and Exceptional Towing Capacity
The base engine is the 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 engine rated at up to 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque coupled with the robust TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission to achieve a best-in-class towing capability of 2,812 kg. The available 5.7-litre HEMI V-8 engine produces a best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque and class-leading towing capability of 3,265 kg and is fitted with Fuel Saver Technology with cylinder-deactivation that seamlessly alternates between smooth, high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode and V-8 mode when more power is required.
The Dodge Durango SRT is loaded with performance features designed to make it a powerful, stylish and capable three-row SUV. Power comes from a 392-cubic-inch HEMI V-8 that delivers 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, with 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 12.9 seconds. On top of that, the Dodge Durango SRT outhauls every other three-row full-size SUV on the road with a best-in-class towing capability of 3,946 kg.
Three All-Wheel Drive Options
The Durango has three available AWD systems, which greatly enhance the vehicle's traction and handling. The 5.7-litre and 6.4-litre HEMI-powered AWD Durango models feature a low-range transfer case with a neutral position. Low range improves light off-road performance and helps ease maneuvers, such as pulling a boat up a steep launch or backing up with a trailer. The neutral position in the transfer case allows the vehicle to be flat-towed without damaging powertrain components.
Family-Friendly Seating with Plenty of Cargo Room
Families with three or more children will find the Durango's available captain's chairs with pass-through especially helpful as child safety seats can be latched into each second-row seat, and it's still easy to get to the third-row.
A versatile 60/40 split folding second-row seat conveniently folds and tumbles. Transporting long items, like 10-foot 2x4s, is not a problem as the left side of the second-row folds 60 percent, allowing the versatility of folding the 40 percent seat in tandem with the front passenger fold-flat seat. To make passengers more comfortable, second-row seats also are available with heat and they recline 18 degrees. The third-row seat features a 50/50 split and is easily folded from the rear of the vehicle. For even more utility, both the second- and third-row seats fold to provide a flat load floor. A switch in the instrument panel remotely lowers third-row headrests when not in use.
Connectivity and Infotainment Features
Hands-free communication is included with either the standard 7-inch or available 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, the latter of which is the largest touchscreen in its class, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also standard on all Durango models. Durango offers a class-exclusive Blu-ray video rear entertainment system with two high-resolution 9-inch screens, one on each front seat back. Each screen allows passengers to watch their movies on Blu-ray or standard DVDs or play their gaming systems via inputs for HDMI or RCA cables for each screen. Wireless headphones are included as is a wireless remote.
Safety and Security
The 2019 Dodge Durango offers more than 60 standard and available safety and security features with seven standard air bags, including full-length three-row side-curtain airbags, standard front-seat mounted side-thorax air bags, front-row active head restraints, standard trailer-sway control, available Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop, Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, 9-1-1 and Roadside Assistance.
