2020 Dodge Durango Specs, Engine, Review, & Changes – The Dodge vehicle family muscle mission does not end with the 2020 Dodge Durango crossover. The brawny ride with its steel unibody isn’t by definition an SUV, as it lacks body-on-frame construction. CUV classification does not end Durangos from transporting three rows of passenger seats, towing as a lot as to 8,700 pounds, or lighting up the pavement in the SRT version.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Jeep Grand Cherokee shares two engines and a few other mechanized elements with the Durango, but the Grand Cherokee is a five-passenger vehicle. The Durango is longer, broader, taller, and heavier than the Grand Cherokee, plus, depending on trim, the Durango can seat six or seven travelers, including the driver.
Dodge’s 2020 mission for the Durango: Distribute SRT styling qualities to other trim amounts to bring up the Durango’s overall badass quotient. The 2020 Durango R-T has the exact same front styling as the SRT, which include a front fascia, performance hood, decrease valence, and fog lighting fixtures. Other trims and powertrains and appearance deals for all powertrains. All 2020 Durangos have rearview file backup video cameras, new sport steering wheels, and a driver-driven electronic T-shifters.
Three engines power 2020 Durango models. The most compact of the three mills, with the greatest fuel economy, is a 3.6L Pentastar V6. The V6 tends to make 293 horsepower at 6,400 rpm with a single exhaust and 295 horsepower with dual exhaust. Torque with possibly exhaust system is 260 pound-feet at 4,000 rpm. Durangos with the V6 can pull up to 6,200 pounds of motorboat, camper, or trailer.
Fueling the V6 with 87 octane gas is fine. Rear wheel drives Durango with the V6 offer an EPA average score of 19 mpg in city driving, 26 mpg on the highway, and 21 mpg combined. With AWD the put together V6 mileage score stays the same at 21 mpg but the city and highway driving each drop one mile per gallon to 18 mpg and 25 mpg, respectively. The V6 is standard on the SXT, SXT Plus, GT, and Citadel Durango trim. The Durango R/T goes a 5.7L Hemi V8 rated at 360 hp at 5,150 rpm and 390 lb-ft of torque at 4,250 rpm. You can use 87 octane gas, but Dodge advocates midrange 89 octane. Rear wheel and all-wheel drive Durango with the 5.7L Hemi is EPA rated at 14 mpg in the city, 22 mpg on the highway, and 17 mpg in mixed driving. The 5.7L Hemi is a choice on the Durango Citadel.
The high-performance Durango SRT gets its power from a 6.4L V8 that wails with 475 hp at 6,000 rpm and 470 lb-ft of torque at 4,300 rpm. Supply the SRT 91 octane premium gas. The SRT’s EPA fuel economy status probable issues very little to those who will buy it, but for the record, it’s 13 mpg in city driving, 19 mpg on the highway and 15 mpg combined. Handling, suspension, brakes, and drivetrain methods change amid Durango trims. The SXT and GT trims have anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes, with heavy-duty enhancements for the Citadel and R/T trims and high-performance Brembo brakes on the SRT. The R/T has a reduced-height sports suspension when the SRT has a Bilstein high-performance active damping suspension. AWD SXT, GT, and Citadels use a single-speed full-time AWD set up. The R/T has two-speed, active on-need AWD. The SRT uses FCA’s Quadra-Trac active on-desire 4WD system.
All Durango models have electronic stability control, including vehicle stability administration, electronic roll mitigation, all-speed traction control, brake assist, and 4-channel anti-lock brakes. Also, all trims include hill-start assist to stop rolling back when starting upon an incline, rainfall brake assists, ready alert braking, and trailers sway control. Unaggressive safety and driver assistance features are available in choice deals for most models (not the base SXT), but the only feature across all trims is a rearview backup camera. The dining tables listed below suggest indirect safety and assist features that are standard (in striking), optional, or otherwise available for each trim.
