2012 Dodge Durango Video
- The return of the Dodge Durango brought with it numerous awards and comparison test victories from many well-respected evaluation groups, such as MotorWeek and the American Automobile Association (AAA). For 2012, the Durango receives even more features, allowing Durango to raise the bar once again for value in the seven-seat SUV segment.


About The 2012 Dodge Durango:

 

With its four-wheel independent suspension, near 50:50 weight distribution, and responsive steering and handling, Durango has driving dynamics unlike what you typically find in a Sport Utility. No other SUV on the road compares with the all-new Dodge Durango’s distinctive bold Dodge design that craftily houses a spacious three-row, seven-passenger functional, flexible and premium interior, covered in soft-touch materials. Durango features more than 30 storage areas, 28 seating configurations and a rear cargo area of nearly 85 cubic feet that fits a six-foot couch with room for coffee table or a 10-foot ladder with the front passenger seat folded flat.

Utility may be one of Durango’s key attributes, but safety did not take a back seat during development. The 2012 Dodge Durango was recently named a “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

New for 2012 is an automatic transmission on HEMI V-8-equipped Durangos that allows drivers to choose between six speeds when shifting in manual mode. V-6 AWD models now get 23 miles per gallon, a one-mile-per-gallon improvement compared to last year’s model. Also new for the 2012 model year are second-row captain’s chairs in the already well-equipped Durango interior (delayed availability). Revised trim levels include SXT, Crew, R/T and Citadel.

The 2012 Dodge Durango delivers the rare combination of power and fuel efficiency. Both engines deliver best-in-class V-6 and V-8 towing with standard trailer sway control on all models (V-8 - 7,400 lbs. and V-6 – 6,200 lbs.). Its award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine delivers an unsurpassed 290 horsepower along with a best-in-class driving range of more than 550 miles on one tank of fuel, which means Durango owners could drive all the way from Chicago to Nashville, or New York to Boston and back again, without stopping for fuel.

The EPA fuel economy miles per gallon (mpg) (City/Hwy) are 16/23 for both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models, an improvement of one mile per gallon highway for AWD models compared to last year. Durango is also available with the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with fuel saver mode. The 5.7-liter delivers 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,250 rpm and also features Variable Valve Timing (VVT). The available V-8 delivers performance, best-in-class 7,400 lbs. of towing capability and fuel efficiency. The EPA fuel economy mpg (City/Hwy) is 14/20 for rear-wheel-drive models and 13/20 for all-wheel-drive models.

The 2012 Dodge Durango features two automatic transmissions and two available full-time all-wheel-drive systems (V-6 and V-8 versions). The drivelines provide smooth operation of the vehicle over a variety of road conditions. Where competitors have switched to car-based platforms, the HEMI-powered, all-wheel-drive Durango features a low-range transfer case for light off-road recreation and to ease maneuvers while towing, such as pulling a boat out of the water from a high degree launch or backing up with a trailer attached..
