New 2017 Dodge Durango at Akins Dodge Chrysler Jeep for Winder, GA

The 2017 Durango by Dodge is a utilitarian beast of an SUV, while still rocking strong fuel economy and capable driving dynamics. Let's not forget either that this is one of those vehicles that you can have a third seat put into the back row as an option, depending on model choice, to get seating for seven! New for 2017 is the GT trim in its monochromatic exterior style, which replaces a previous trim. The R/T trim adds so much capability on top with its new roof rails, which are always welcome, and this year, are painted black. The crossover 2017 Dodge Durango trims all have amazing acceleration, 3rd-row seat possibilities, strong towing capacity, and low-range gearing on the 4-wheel drive setups. The Citadel trim must have a pedal that goes right to the floor on luxury, with its Anodized Platinum package (available), which sees duo-tone leather upholstery with silver stitching. Also, in trims that have the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen (available), there is a rearview camera that is motion-activated, to see the trailer when driving. The SXT trim brings the comfort options with your choice of seats in the second row, new in 2017.

Under the Durango's Hood

The Durango is rear-wheel drive with an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard, yet an all-wheel drive arrangement is an option as well. Owners can put either a Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 that works with 260 lb-ft of torque and 290 horsepower, or a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with Fuel Saver Technology. That engine outputs 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. The 3.6-liter tows 6,200 pounds and can achieve 26 miles per gallon on the highway, 19 mpg city and 21 mpg combined. There is the possibility, on all trims, for the 'Trailer-tow Group IV' which gains several key things, like a full-size spare tire and rear load-leveling shocks, a 4- and 7-pin wiring harness, a 220-amp alternator (if 5.7L V-8), a heavy-duty engine oil cooler (if 5.7L V-8), and a Class IV hitch receiver. The EPA stated that the all-wheel drive setup for the Dodge Durango got 25 miles per gallon highway, 18 mpg city and 21 mpg combined, for its 2017 tests. This 2017 Dodge entry can get your towing needs addressed: the 5.7-liter has a tow limit of 7,400-lbs! 

Design of Dodge Durango

Oh yeah-- then there is the wonderful inside of the 2017 Dodge Durango! There are 3 rows by design, but remember that captain's chairs can be substituted in for the standard bench seat, in the second-row. The Durango makes about 85 cubic feet of cargo space and mainly seats a range of five to seven passengers, depending somewhat on seating choices. There are 4 models: the Citadel, SXT, R/T, and the GT. The GT model comes with 20-inch wheels, and there is a Blu-ray video entertainment system that is available. That same system rocks the interior with two 9-inch screens that showcase high-resolution DVDs and also plug-in video games. The Citadel trim incorporates illuminating xenon headlights and an exterior with a chrome trim. Packages abound with the 2017 Durango, and owners would do well to select either the Brass Monkey or Blacktop appearance packages for the R/T and GT models! There are 18-inch alloy wheels on the SXT trim, which then continues with heated mirrors, Bluetooth phone connectivity, a 5-inch touchscreen, a rear suspension that self-levels, a 6-speaker audio system, keyless ignition/entry, tri-zone climate control, and several other features. The Brass monkey package is noticeable with its split crosshair grille painted Gloss Black and aluminum 20-inch burnished bronze color wheels.

What's in the Mopar Chrome Appearance Group?

It's an option on all besides the R/T model, and it contains front and rear door entry guards, a chrome exhaust-tip, a bright pedal kit, and chrome mirror covers, all by Mopar!

Is there a CD player in the 2017 Dodge Durango?

It's certainly an option! It is a single disc and has a remote. The Durango must have Uconnect 8.4 for it to be included.


Standard on any 2017 Durango is Rain Brake Support, a driver's knee airbag, Hill-start Assist, Keyless Enter 'n Go, front-side airbags and especially important full-length side curtain airbags. But the list doesn't stop there! It continues right along with all-speed traction control, Brake Assist, anti-lock disc brakes, an Electronic Stability Control (which has a vehicle stability management system), electronic roll mitigation (ERM), and a quad-channel anti-lock brake system (ABS). The 8.4-inch touchscreen interface is there as an option, and chock-full of emergency assistance features. Purchasing the SXT model eases lining up trailer-hooks and also eases backing up into parking spaces with its rear parking sensors and rearview camera. In testing by the IIHS, the 2017 Dodge Durango attained the highest score of 'Good' in roof strength, head restraint, moderate-overlap front-impact, and side-impact tests. In U.S Government crash testing, the 2017 Dodge Durango saw a complete five stars for side-impact safety. Dodge has certainly integrated its customers' feedback, as many rely on this vehicle for the transportation of the most important people in their lives. Add into this that the Durango has strong traits in several other areas, and you have a winning vehicle you have just got to come down and try out here at Akins Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram! Questions?
