Dodge Durango Fuel Economy Improves in 2014

There’s really no areas in which the Dodge Durango isn’t vastly improved for 2014, including the Dodge Durango fuel economy numbers. With a 24 mpg rating on highway and 17 mpg in the city, the Durango posts high-class numbers for a seven passenger SUV. But, take it from us here at Corwin Dodge, the new Durango is impressive for many more reasons as well.

Let’s start with the powertrain options—Dodge offers a 3.6L Pentastar engine, a six-cylinder beast, standard on the Durango. The engine revs up to 290 horsepower and makes use of an eight-speed automatic transmission to keep a good grip on the roads while maxing out its power. However, you can feel free to upgrade to a 5.7L engine, a real behemoth that delivers huge numbers and huge loads of performance.

One of our favorite features of the 2014 Durango is the spacious interior. (And, no, despite how Ron Burgundy may try to pitch the Durango, we’re not talking about the glove compartment’s gum-holding potential.) Many vehicles can claim to seat up to seven people comfortably, but few follow through on that claim as completely as the Durango. From its aggressive exterior to its spacious interior to its balance of power and efficiency, the Durango is the perfect SUV for your whole family.
