4 Reasons to Check Out the 2016 Dodge Durango
Drivers in the market for a three-row SUV will want to check out the 2016 Dodge Durango. Boasting more attitude than typical crossovers with all the family-friendly features you’d expect from Dodge, the new Durango is a smart choice for anyone wanting to stand out.
Here are four reasons to consider the 2016 Dodge Durango when you’re in the market for an SUV crossover.
1. Ample Space for the Whole Family
Three-row crossovers offer extra room for all the kids, but some competitors fall short in terms of head and leg space, especially when it comes to that back row. The 2016 Durango features a practical design that’s suited to passengers of any age or size. In fact, the third row is so roomy and comfortable that even adults will be comfortable for a long ride.
Dodge achieves this level of comfort with unconventional seating configurations that accommodate up to seven passengers. Many three-row crossovers attempt to cram in an extra seat, but that design only reduces room for everyone. That’s a big drawback, especially when you don’t need seating for that many people. In contrast, the 2016 Durango offers up to 50 different seating and cargo configurations, making it one of the most flexible SUVs on the market.
2. Exceptional Cargo Space
As if designing enough room for the family wasn’t enough, Dodge has also made the new Durango a leader in cargo capacity. The vehicle’s maximum cargo capacity is 84.5 cubic feet, which is very competitive in this segment. By storing the third row and using the space behind the second seats, you’re still getting a whopping 47.7 cubic feet of space.
Naturally, the space behind the third row when all seats are in place is limited, but it’s actually big enough to accommodate a large golf bag. There’s more than enough room for gear and groceries.
3. An Array of Add-Ons
While the base SXT model is pretty standard, the Durango’s upper trims add some sweet features that are well worth the upgrade. Optional packages like the Nav & Power and Safety/Security & Convenience add extra horsepower, upgraded brakes, a sunroof, and ventilated front seats. The Citadel trim can even be equipped with a Beats audio system and a rear entertainment system that includes a DVD/Blu-ray player and two screens.
If you prefer appearance over tech, the Rallye Appearance package adds body-color exterior trim, 5 extra horsepower, and black wheels. These types of customization options allow you to add the features that are most important to you and your family.
4. High-Tech Safety Features
Safety is every family’s priority, which is why Dodge has integrated state-of-the-art safety features into every Durango. Even the base model comes standard with stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes, trailer sway control, a driver knee airbag, front side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags. Parking sensors and a rearview camera are optional on the SXT trim and come standard on all upper trims.
Opting for add-on safety packages will get you forward-collision warning, emergency assistance, stolen-vehicle tracking, blind-spot warning, rear cross-path alert, and automatic braking.
