2017 Dodge Durango

With 2017 upon us, it was only time Dodge released its newest Durango. The introduction of the 2017 Dodge Durango in Edmonton was an early surprise for fans of the vehicle. Perhaps, the biggest difference between the previous model and the 2017 car is the removal of its third row seat, a standard feature in all past Durango cars. The vehicle boasts the body of an SUV with incredible towing ability.
On the road, the Dodge Durango rides like a dream, as its rugged and sophisticated exterior passes other cars. It is available in GT, R/T, SXT, and Citadel trims. The GT takes place of the Limited, the Citadel trim receives Nappa leather, and the SXT receives a standard five-passenger seat with an option to select a third row seat.

The car’s rearview mirror displays the view of the trailer when the car is moving, but only with models with 8.4-inch screens on the dashboard. For families who want a good and reliable car, the 2017 Dodge Durango in Edmonton hits all the right spots. Without further ado, let’s get into the details.

The engine

The 2017 Dodge Durango is equipped with 3.6-liter V6 engine. However, not all the 2017 models boast a 3.6-liter V6 engine. The standard engine is absent from the R/T trim.

For families who want to save fuel, the Dodge Durango in Edmonton sounds like a safe bet. People who want a little bit more horsepower can opt for the 5.7-liter Hemi V8, which generates an astoundingly 360 horsepower. Additionally, it has a 7,400 towing capacity to boot. Like the 3.6-loter V6 engine, it also has the ability to turn off four of the eight cylinders. One thing in common the V6 and V8 engines have is their all-wheel drive and 8-speed automatic transmission.
