Introducing the 2022 Dodge Durango and the Dodge Durango SRT
The Dodge Durango has long been thought of as one of the most capable and efficient mid-sized SUVs on the market. Unlike other vehicles in its class, the Durango offers powerful engine options that you would expect to find on a muscle car. In fact, the Durango SRT 390 has the same powerful get-up-and-go that the iconic Dodge Challenger provides.
This year, the Dodge Durango and the Durango SRT 390 have been equipped with more standard features than ever before. Here is a look at what you can expect to find on these two impressive and powerful models.
The Durango has an aggressive, yet stylish, exterior design. The body is both wide and tall, which gives it a sturdy appearance. The front fascia has a sporty appearance. The front grille has a unique design and is flanked by two LED projector headlights and large LED daytime running lamps. The rear also features LED taillights and comes with a two-piece rear spoiler that helps to tie the sporty and stylish look together.
The Durango SRT has a distinguished exterior appearance. The front hood has a large vent that sits in the centre and is both stylish and practical. This model also comes with two racing stripes that stretch from the front bumper to the rear bumper.
The Durango has a spacious and stylish interior design. The cabin features three rows of versatile seating and is able to comfortably fit up to seven occupants. The rear cargo area is spacious as well and can be extended by lowering the second-row seats in a 60/40 split and lowering the third-row seats in a 50/50 split. With over 50 different seating configurations, you will be able to easily customize your interior cargo and passenger space.
The SRT's interior is just as spacious and luxurious as the standard Durango. However, the SRT trim adds leather seats to the interior. It also comes standard with first and second-row heated seats.
The Durango comes standard with an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display, but a 10.1-inch display is available. Both displays run off the innovative Uconnect 5 system and come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. To help keep the rear seat passengers entertained on long road trips, the Durango also offers an available rear entertainment system that comes with two large displays that come with RCA and HDMI ports and are mounted to the back of the driver and front passenger seat.
The SRT comes standard with the 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment display. And while it offers the same features that the display on the regular Durango has, it also adds a few new features that can only be found on the SRT. For instance, the SRT's system comes with a Performance Page menu that allows you to check your acceleration times, cornering g-force, and even allows you to see how much horsepower your engine is currently delivering.

• Advanced Airbag System with 7 Airbags

• Rain Brake Support
• Front and Rear Park Assist
