As with anything that comes out with a totally new style I was a bit leery about buying the new Durango. We initially purchased it due to its size of the third-row for adults which we really enjoyed and loved the overall look of the Durango. After having it for over two+ years now we are still satisfied with Durango Citadel that we have. We do have the Hemi V8 and that to me has been the downfall with this vehicle. We are LUCKY to get 13-14 in town and are LUCKY to get 18-20 on the Highway. It tries to conserve fuel but with the weight and big engine it is tough! Love it overall though!

I actually own the CREW model with the V8-HEMI but I cannot find anyone that lists this model in the V8 only the T model is listed. It is wonderful in every way although she likes the gas when on the highway she drops 4 cylinders saving me on gas and she can tow over 7 lbs..how wonderful is that! The comfort of the ride is incredible and with 45 safety features I take comfort that my family is protected not to mention all the bells and whistles that came with it.

The Dodge Durango is back!

It’s better than ever and definitely heating up the competition between other vehicles in its class. At first glance it’s pretty clear why the Durango took so long to be revamped and when you sit in the driver seat it’s even more apparent what the big deal is. The 2011 Dodge Durango has had some tough competition with the class leading Ford Explorer, as well as other popular models like the Toyota 4-Runner, GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse, to name a few. With a complete overhaul inside and out, improved performance and drive, and an affordable price tag, the Durango is sure to impress and give you what an SUV should, plus more!
The exterior is completely redesigned and presents a fresh look for the Durango. Every line has become fluid with each panel flowing smoothly into the next, and while the body has become remotely smooth and less muscular, Dodge has added just enough chrome accents to give it a hint of character. The grill is still very predominant; however the glam has definitely been upgraded this time around adding almost a diamond-like sparkle to the new face of the Durango. The Citadel (as test driven) comes with 20-inch x 8.0-inch aluminum chrome clad wheels and when combined with the smooth lines, chrome accents and glamour-rich grill, give it that sporty meets luxury appearance. The Durango also comes equipped with a power sunroof, power liftgate, fog lamps and low beam/SmartBeam headlamps with Auto Leveling System.

Equipped under the hood with a 3.6-Liter V6 24-Valve VVT engine, the Dodge Durango has 290 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque; although leaving the 4Runner and Pilot in the dust, this puts it at an even playing field with the newly redesigned Ford Explorer. All trims come standard with a 5-speed automatic transmission which included Electronic Range Select driver-interaction manual control and an electronically modulated torque clutch. The Durango provides great continuous power for the most part, but if you catch the shift in the wrong place (3-4k) you can feel a bit of lag. Even being as large of a vehicle as it is, the Durango was extremely easy to handle, had one of the best turning radius capabilities in its class and at the end of the day, drove like a luxury vehicle instead of a rough road SUV. Equipped with anti-lock 4-wheel disc brakes with rough road detection, the Durango brakes very well; abruptly but smooth. Although, the Durango has ample power under the hood, which you could get VERY used to especially if you have a lead foot, it doesn’t come without a price: lack of fuel efficiency. While most SUVs are trying to beat the high fuel price odds and competing with models like the Ford Explorer (17city/25hwy), the Durango only gets 16city/23hwy, then you add its ability to tow 5000 pounds and it becomes even less of a competitor in the fuel efficiency aspect. However, while fuel efficiency might be at the top of most people’s minds, when you drive this vehicle and take into account everything else it has to offer, the gas mileage becomes a very distant concern.



Dodge gave the interior a quality upgrade, providing comfort at all levels with 8-way and 4-way power seats, heated and cooled seat features for front passengers and heated seat options for second row passengers. The leather seats are extremely comfortable in this vehicle and are very easy to adjust to the right setting for the right level of comfort. Even with three rows of seating, the Durango has ample and comfortable legroom and space for adults and children. The driver has an added bonus features with a heated steering wheel and the power tilt telescope steering column for drivers who can’t quite get comfortable with the typical tilt steering wheel. This not only allows drivers to move the wheel up and down but also allows for power adjustment by moving it towards or away from them. The Citadel trim provides a very luxury sport look and feel with a blend of perforated camel colored leather, wood grain and black accents. The leather-wrapped shift knob, leather wrapped door armrests and console lid and illuminated cup holders are just small touches Dodge has added that have made BIG differences. The colors work very well together and every inch of the interior are designed well and with much thought. Nothing is out of reach and all controls are intuitively designed for ease of use. Climate and entertainment controls provide typical functionality; not complicated at all. The Media Center is a 6.5” touch screen that is CD, DVD, MP3, HDD, and Navigation ready with Uconnect Voice Command with Bluetooth capabilities. While these capabilities are a step up from past models, the LCD screen graphics are a bit behind the competition, especially when being compared to Ford Explorer’s Microsoft SYNC. All in all it gets the job done.



As for safety, the Durango rises above the competition. Not steering away from the typical safety feature, it comes equipped with side curtain airbags in all rows, front seat-mounted side airbags, advanced multistage front airbags, electronic stability control, Blind Spot and Rear Cross Path Detection, ParkView Rear Back-up camera and ParkSense Rear Park Assist System. In addition, Dodge used advanced technology to add features such as Adaptive Speed Control/Forward Collision Warning and Enhanced Accident Response System. Both are designed to help prevent collision of any kind by alerting with an audible chime when something crosses the path behind the vehicle or if the sensors detect when a vehicle may be coming too close, too quickly to your vehicle.
The 2011 Dodge Durango was impressive all around. Sport utility meets luxury, combined with comfort, ample space, intuitive technology, high performance and a drive you can’t wait to experience time and time again – Dodge has hit its mark. The Durango provides the versatility of an SUV and a driving experience that you could only expect from a luxury vehicle. The Dodge Durango comes in six trims starting at $29,195 with the Express and going up to $42,020 for the Citadel trim.
