If you haven’t had a chance to check out the new 2015 Dodge Durango R/T, then you’re missing out. Featuring high-performance engineering and revamped styling, the new Durango is causing quite a stir in the automotive industry.
The three-row Durango has been around in 1998, bridging the gap between compact crossovers and full-size SUVs. According to Top Speed, the 2015 Durango R/T performance is getting quite a boost thanks to the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that comes standard. This powerful engine generates 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque, all while maintaining 23 mpg. Pretty impressive, especially for a seven-seater crossover.
“The Dodge Durango R/T was already one of the meanest-looking SUVs on the market (especially under the $40,000 range), but things get even better for 2015 with a sporty new interior package inspired by the new Charger and Challenger,” said Top Speed editors. “From every angle, the Durango R/T stands out from the sea of SUVs and crossovers on the market, and it does so without sacrificing capability or comfort.”
The new Durango is also getting restyled inside and out, featuring LED lighting, R/T trim, and a taller ride-height. On top of that, a “Beats by Dr. Dre” audio system and Nappa Leather come optional as well. With all of these features, it’s easy to see why the R/T is one of the most popular mid-size SUVs on the road. It’s one of our favorites here at Corwin Dodge!
