5 reasons to buy the 2022 Dodge Durango

1. Potent engines

The 2022 Dodge Durango is available with a lineup of powerful engine options. The base trim is powered by a 293-hp 3.6L V6 engine, and options include a 5.7L V8, generating 360 hp, as well as a 6.4L V8 engine with an output of 475 hp. They are all paired to an eight-speed transmission and offer a dynamic and thrilling driving experience, with quick acceleration and excellent handling. When powered by the V8 engine, it can go from zero to 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds, according to the manufacturer.

2. Towing capability

On top of the exciting performance, these potent engines contribute to a great towing capability on the 2022 Dodge Durango. When properly equipped, the AWD 6.4L V8 Durango can tow up to an estimated 8,700 lbs.

 With this capacity, the 2022 model can easily tow a sailboat, a travel trailer, or other heavy stuff for work or recreation. Features such as electronic roll mitigation, all-speed traction control, and trailer sway control help make towing that much more convenient.

3. High cargo capacity

If cargo space is among your priorities, you will be happy to know that the 2022 Dodge Durango has it in abundance. Behind the third row, it has 17.2 cu-ft of space and with those seats folded, you get 43.3 cu-ft. The total cargo volume with both the second-row and third-row seats folded down is a total of 85.1 cu-ft, which will allow you to haul supplies for a home renovation project or maybe some camping gear and sporting equipment, as well as plenty of grocery bags.

4. Standard tech features

As far as technology is concerned, the 2022 Dodge Durango comes with lots of standard features, which are aimed to enhance your overall driving experience. It's equipped with the Uconnect 4C infotainment system that comes with an 8.4-inch touchscreen and is compatible with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto. It also has several USB ports and 12-volt charging options. When it comes to driver-assist technology, it comes standard with rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind spot monitoring system.

5. Roomy interior

Arguably one of the most obvious benefits that the 2022 Dodge Durango offers is the interior space. The cabin is roomy and comfortable, with three rows of seats that can accommodate up to seven people. In the front row, you get 40.3 inches of legroom and 39.9 inches of headroom. Second-row passengers get 38.6 inches of legroom and 39.8 inches of headroom, whereas third-row legroom measures 33.5 inches. With this kind of space, first- and second-row passengers can sit comfortably and won't feel cramped even on longer trips, while the third-row seats are generally more suitable for kids.
