4 Reasons Moms Can’t Get Enough of the Dodge Durango
Sexy, refined, and sleek are three adjectives that perfectly describe the 2017 Dodge Durango. But that’s not all. The Durango is also known for being reliable, spacious, and safe, and it has excellent efficiency. All for a starting MSRP of $29,995, it’s no wonder why moms are a huge fan of the Dodge Durango. Below you’ll find a more in-depth look at why this vehicle is just so appealing.
Reason #1: Interior Room and Cargo Space
Featuring much more interior room than other mid-sized SUV’s, the 2017 Dodge Durango is a great vehicle for those with larger families or for those mom’s going on a road trip with girlfriends. This SUV features 39.8 inches of head room, 42.80 inches of hip room, 38.6 inches of leg room, and 50.4 inches of shoulder room. Plus, this Durango has 17.2 cubic feet of cargo room, split-folding rear seats, and up to 84.5 cubic feet of cargo space, all providing plenty of room for both passengers and bags.
Reason #2: Versatile and Comfortable Interior
In conjunction with the first reason, another reason why this SUV is so popular is the fact that it has fifty different seating configurations. Comfortable seating for up to seven makes the Durango the perfect vehicle for hauling around sporting equipment or going on a vacation. Those lucky enough to get a front row seat will be met with the comfort of available heated and ventilated seats with lumbar support. The second-row seats give those passengers access to the center console, which features vent controls, USB ports, and an available 115-volt power outlet. The 2017 Durango also features three-zone automatic temperature control, allowing all passengers to find the perfect temperature for them.
Reason #3: Powerful Performance
The engineers at Dodge don’t believe in sacrificing driving performance and power. The 2017 Durango comes with two engine options, both of which provide an exhilarating driving performance. The standard 3.6-liter Pentastar engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and generates 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The optional 5.7-liter V8 engine is paired with Variable Valve Timing (VVT), fuel saver technology, and an 8-speed automatic transmission. Outputting 360-horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque, you’ll definitely feel the need for speed when driving a Durango with this engine.
Reason #4: Built With Safety In Mind
Being equipped with over 60 safety features, it’s apparent that Dodge’s commitment to safety is clear in the 2017 Durango. One of the available safety features that we love the most is Adaptive Cruise Control. This feature uses radar sensors to detect distances between you and other vehicles on the road. With this detection, the system will adjust cruising speed to maintain proper distance with the vehicle in front of you.
And there you have it, some of the top reasons why the 2017 Dodge Durango is the next mom mobile. Interested in learning more? Stop by our dealership today.
