5 reasons to buy the 2014 Dodge Durango

1. Robust V8 engine 

The Durango's available 5.7L HEMI® V8 provides exceptional power, ensuring robust performance and towing capability, making it ideal for hauling and adventurous drives. It pushes out 360 horsepower and is capable of towing up to an estimated 7,400 lbs when properly equipped.

 This makes it a great choice if you’re looking to tow the boat to the lake or just want the flexibility of being able to pull a trailer behind. 

2. Spacious and comfortable interior 

Despite having the utility of a workhorse, the 2014 Durango is spacious and comfortable. A bench seat comes standard in the second row but look out for the optional captain’s chairs if you’re regularly traveling with adults or older teens in the back. Even the third row just about has enough room for adults, but it’s probably best suited to kids if you’re heading out on a long journey. If cargo is your priority, the second and third rows fold flat to open up 84.5 cu-ft of space, which is enough for moving boxes or furniture from the antique store. 

3. User-friendly Uconnect® system 

The infotainment system in the Durango is incredibly user-friendly and comes with a range of features to enhance the driving experience. Look out for models with Voice Command and navigation to help you get where you’re going with ease. The available 8.4-inch touchscreen also includes Bluetooth® connectivity for easy music streaming. This works particularly well with the available nine-speaker Alpine® sound system. 

4. Commanding presence 

With its bold design and large stature, the Durango has a commanding presence on the road. This gives you great outward visibility but if you want more confidence driving a large vehicle, look out for the Technology Group package. It can be found on R/T and Citadel models as it gives you an advanced forward collision warning and mitigation system alongside blindspot monitoring with cross-traffic alerts. 

5. Versatile cargo space 

The Durango offers a generous amount of cargo space, with flexible seating configurations that allow for a variety of cargo and passenger arrangements. With all the seats flat, you get 84.5 cu-ft of space. But what if you want to carry passengers and their things too? The standard seven-passenger layout features a fold-flat front passenger seat, a 60/40 split folding middle row, and a 50/50 folding rear row for ultimate flexibility.
