The 2016 Dodge Durango falls under this crossover's third generation of production (2011-2020). After a brief hiatus for the 2010 model year, the third-generation Durango launched with a revised unibody frame instead of the truck-like body-on-frame design it utilized in the past. The end result was an SUV that drives and handles more like a sedan than a truck.
With the third-generation Durango also came upgrades like a more powerful V6 engine and a completely refreshed cabin. By 2016, an automatic engine start/stop system was also standard on V6 models.
2016 Dodge Durango Engine Options
A 3.6L V6 engine at 290-295 hp (varies by trim) is standard on the 2016 Durango, as is an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. However, all-wheel drive is optional for every trim.
Speaking of trims, the top-tier R/T receives a more powerful 5.7L V8 engine at 360 hp. The all-wheel drive system offered on this trim differs in that it includes a low-range transfer case as well.

Reviews for 2016 Dodge Durango
2016 Durango R/T
I would recommend this truck because it really appropriately meets the needs of both my family and my performance needs. We can all fit very comfortably (with extra seating) and I can feel the performance of the 5.7 liter V8.
- Value: For our family needs this truck had most of the boxes checked
- Reliability: Our family has much to which involves sports, weekly shopping, and small kids - this truck gets it done
- Technology and Entertainment:
- Fuel Economy: I absolutely love the V8 power, but traveling 89 miles/day for work is equally disenchanting for fuel consumption
- Cabin Noise: To be able to endure a little less of the outside world while having the windows up would have to be a necessity
- Cost to Maintain: There have been a few predictable repairs based on customer and other reviews
Awesome SUV with a lot of cool features.
Sporty and plenty of room for the family.
- Technology and Entertainment: Still learning new things it has every day
- Cabin Noise: Sounds good outside and quiet on the inside
- Interior Space: Plenty of leg room
- Value: A little more than I would like to pay
- Dashboard: A lot of buttons and a bit confusing
- Fuel Economy: Gets less fuel mileage than my last SUV but is still pretty good
