"How to Change Cars Forever"

2016 Dodge Durango Edmonton

Although Dodge is known for its muscle cars, the retro feel, and the NASCAR look, its latest SUV offering is nothing short of amazing. If you’re looking for a perfect family vehicle with ample passenger and cargo space and impeccable towing abilities, look no further than the 2016 Dodge Durango. Edmonton and Vancouver are the perfect places for a family vehicle.

The interior is specially suited to comfortably transport passengers and cargo. It’s a perfect mix of utility and performance. Just because it’s a family vehicle, that doesn’t mean it cannot deliver speed and power. You have a range of five different models to choose from where you can opt between the V6 and the V8.

One of the most attractive features of the Durango is that, despite being an SUV and a family vehicle, it is not an oversized car. Pair the standard 7-seat arrangement for passengers with a V8 engine for power and you have yourself a winning combination. It doesn’t hurt that the Durango looks as good as it does.

The 2016 models are geared towards achieving an improved fuel economy. And it does that through the start-stop technology on the models with the V6 engines. There are also significant improvements in the entertainment system which includes even more options, increased responsiveness, and a 10-speaker Beats by Dr. Dre audio system.

Here are some of the most outstanding features of the 2016 Dodge Durango. Edmonton citizens are going to love these:

The Engine

When it comes to the engine, you can choose between an incredibly superb 3.6-liter V6 and an even more powerful 5.7-liter Hemi V8. Regardless of the kind of engine you choose, you get an eight-speed automatic transmission and an additional option for an all-wheel drive.

The V6 is standard on all models except the R/T. And with the 2016 Dodge Durango, you now have the start-stop technology for an even better fuel economy and conservation at traffic signals. With a 295 hp and 295 lb-ft torque, the Durango’s V6 engines provide some of the best performance among the vehicles of its price range.

But the fun doesn’t end here: The serious speed and power comes with a rip-roaring, 360-hp, 5.7-liter Hemi V8. Not only does it bump the speed up several notches, but it also increases the towing capacity to an impressive 7,400 pounds. And when you don’t need the full steam of the glorious 8 cylinders of the V8, it simply deactivates four of them to conserve fuel. This, combined with the start-stop function, makes the Durango one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its range.

The interior

In terms of its interior, the Durango offers the most value for money among some of its competitors in the price range. And despite the modest price, the interior doesn’t feel cheap at all. On the contrary, it’s roomy and comfortable. You can have your own slice of luxury at extremely affordable rates.

With some of the higher-level trims, you get heated front and second-row seats. The second-row seats can enable you to accommodate 7 passengers but, when folded, can provide a more luxurious experience for the passengers in the back seats. The cargo area is spacious which can be even more so, when you fold the seats flat. Both the second and third row seats can be flat folded while you flip the passenger seat forward. This makes the Durango absolutely perfect for long objects.

The Exterior

The front and back lighting system is simply out of the park on the 2016 Dodge Durango. Edmonton and Vancouver streets can be especially tricky to navigate in the night. The strong LED accent lights can come in handy then. The LED eyeliners under the headlights can be used as daytime rights. And what’s a Dodge without a "racetrack taillight" display?

Although the Durango is an SUV, it retains some of the most iconic visual elements of the other models. The most notable of these is the crosshair grille in the front which comes in three different colors and designs depending on the model or trim level.

The Equipment

The range of options you can have on the equipment depends on the trim levels you go for. There are four to choose from:

  • SXT
  • Limited
  • Citadel
  • R/T

All of the models and trim levels have a 7-passenger seating setting. And when it comes to the seats, you have a lot of options for maneuverability. The driver seat can be easily adjusted for height. You have a 60:40 split folding on the second row seats and a 50:50 split folding on the third row seats. The cloth upholstery lets you travel in comfort.

There are plenty of options for a smooth driving experience. The 18-inch alloy wheels allow for a firm grip while the load-leveling rear suspensions eliminate bumps along the way. And, of course there’s cruise control.

The Uconnect 5.0 infotainment system is among the best in the class. The 5-inch touchscreen display is loaded with options. It has Bluetooth and audio connectivity, USB port, and media player.

Unimpressed with the infotainment system and the measly 5-inch display? Don’t worry, you can upgrade to a better and even more responsive 8.4-inch screen. The optional equipment also includes an upgraded navigation system, parking sensors, a rear-view camera, and a blind-spot warning system. The power sunroof and power hatch are other useful additions.

The verdict

The 2016 Dodge Durango is, to put it simply, the best family vehicle in its price range. It combines the iconic visual elements of Dodge with some of the more practical functions to ensure comfort and luxury. There is no better or an affordable option for an SUV elsewhere.
