Welcome to Vision Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram!
The growth of SUV adoption rate continues to increase at a rapid pace. By 2020, we could see half of all car sales go to SUVs. People are realizing SUVs can be sporty, powerful, luxurious, and efficient.
American SUV staples, like the Dodge Durango, show off the best example of an SUV in its purest form. The latest 2018 Dodge Durango doesn’t try to be everything else, it’s big, powerful, and utilitarian. This may turn off some buyers out there riding the crossover wave, but the Dodge Durango leads the way with lots of buyers.
Let’s take a quick look at what the Durango GT offers SUV enthusiasts.
1. Power and Performance
Coming with a 3.6-liter V6, the 2018 Dodge Durango GT has 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The premium trim bumps you up to a V8 with 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. This gives it plenty of mustard to make your way around the urban jungles, as well as some offroad grit.
The Durango GT is capable of towing up to 6,200 smoothly. Plus, the car itself never feels unusually light as some crossovers often do.
Because the Durango is so balanced, driving it is effortless. The suspension keeps things smooth over uneven roads and the tires grip corners well. Driving an AWD Durango across country roads is incomparable to light hybrid SUVs.
You’ll want that extra weight for traction under gravel and dirt. Otherwise, you suffer from that floaty feeling that most cars experience off road.
The seats in the Durango GT are plush, with spacious leg, head, and storage room. Thanks to the big wheel and balanced weight, this is an SUV that is smooth and quiet to ride in. Everyone will also appreciate the generous space for getting in and out of the vehicle.
You’ll spend less time settling into the Durango and more time enjoying the trip.
4. The Rallye Pack
This is by far the coolest body upgrade in the SUV class. The Rallye pack adds a cold-air scoop, two heat extractors, LED fog lamps, and your choice of glossy styling in seven colors. You can make your SUV look faster, without paying the fuel tax for it.
5. Durango GT Safety Features
Last, but not least, is Dodge’s trademark safety marks. You’ll find your standard rearview camera displayed on an eight-inch screen. Other features include front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, adaptive headlights, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.
The 2018 Durango was awarded a top rating of “Good” by IIHS crash tests.
Buying a 2018 Dodge Durango
There’s no better time than now to buy the 2018 Dodge Durango GT. The current prices are trending around $6,000 below the MSRP of $37,895. You can save a lot by buying a used Durango GT with low mileage.
