2008 model year changes
Visually, the Dodge Durango is little changed for 2008, though some mechanical updates are worth noting. Most important is a new, next-generation 303-horsepower 4.7L V8, which can run E85 ethanol. Four-wheel-drive models are now available with a single-speed transfer case, which allows drivers to select full-time AWD in addition to four-wheel high and low. All Durangos now come standard with Chrysler's impressive limited lifetime powertrain warranty. Models in Limited trim differ slightly with some new exterior work, and a new Adventurer trim also offers cosmetic differences and a few interior upgrades. Durangos are now available with a rear back-up camera and Chrysler's MyGIG multi-media infotainment system. Pricing has increased marginally across the range.
Multiple configurations suit all drivers, from urban to rural; strong, aggressive styling in line with the Dodge family look; excellent towing capacity; best-in-the-industry limited lifetime powertrain warranty.
Special features for 2008
Bigger than a small SUV, smaller than a full-size, the Dodge Durango is just right for every need--from those who will never leave asphalt, to those who will never see it. The aggressive styling is distinctly Dodge, and in addition to the standard 3.7L V6 and hefty 5.7L Hemi V8, the new flex-fuel 4.7L V8 makes great sense as a blend of both fuel economy and power, and at 303 horsepower, offers nearly 70 more horsepower than the engine it replaces. The Durango's near-9,000-pound towing capacity with the Hemi is best in the class, and acres of interior room make it a smart choice for hauling people and cargo.
The 2008 Dodge Durango is a popular-selling SUV offered in SXT, SLT, Adventurer and Limited trim levels, in either two or four wheel drive. Engines range from a 210 horsepower 3.7-liter V6 in the SXT and the SLT or a 230 horsepower 4.7-liter V8 in the Adventurer and the Limited. With passenger capacity for up to seven and plenty of cargo room for all their gear, the Durango comes nicely equipped with front and rear air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, power accessories, front bucket seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio.
