2017 Dodge Durango Overview

 

When the people asked Dodge for an SUV, Dodge delivered the Durango. While undergoing a total of three changes, the basis for durability and utility has remained. While there are many that will claim loyalty since its initial release in 1998, it’s also picked up a bit of a following after Chrysler used the at-the-time upcoming Anchorman 2 star Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) to promote the SUV in 2014. Let’s take a look at what all the fuss is about, shall we? The 2017 Durango has six trim levels: SXT, SXT Plus, GT, Citadel, R/T, and Citadel Anodized Platinum. We will be disregarding typical features such as power steering, ABS, and the like during this overview (everything has it now, it’s a modern-day necessity). As always, check out our features glossary for an in-depth look into the features and packages offered.
