One thing we see a lot at Miami Lakes Automall are parents that already have a minivan and can’t decide what the next family vehicle should be. We have more than seven brands, and a lot of model options, so the selection of vehicles is pretty huge.
Some parents want the family’s second car to be a little sportier like a Dodge Challenger or Chevy Camaro, but its just isn’t big enough. Or some people think about the Chevy Tahoe and realize, it’s just a little too big and isn’t really that much more unique than a minivan. Sure, the Tahoe has a body like an SUV, but aside from that, not a lot of character. Well, Miami Lakes Automall has the perfect solution to that family dilemma, the Dodge Durango.
A family with a Chrysler Pacifica and a Dodge Durango in the driveway has it all. Both vehicles offer plenty of space for cargo and passengers, but each vehicle serves a different purpose. Both vehicles are ideal vehicles as daily drivers, but when it comes to more specialized outings like road trips, trips to the beach, hauling your boat to the boat ramp, or hitting the town for a night out, each vehicle has its own specialty.
The Chrysler Pacifica is ideal for trips to the beach and road trips because it offers all of the conveniences one could want. The Pacifica is available with three-rows of seating and has room for seven or eight passengers depending on its seating configuration, but just because it has all those seats doesn’t mean they need to be up at all times. The Chrysler Pacifica features Stow ‘n Go seating, which makes it a breeze for users to fold up the vehicle’s second- and third-row seats and stow them away in storage compartments that are built-in to the vehicle’s floor. That option makes the Chrysler Pacifica ideal for longer trips where it’s more important for the couple kids in the back seat to have more space to stretch out rather than have space for all of their friends that won’t be along for the ride.
The Chrysler Pacifica is also extremely fuel efficient, (18 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, 22 mpg combined city/highway) so on longer trips and daily trips to soccer practice and dentist appointments, the Chrysler Pacifica is a more economical choice. Additionally, the Pacifica is available as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), meaning the vehicle can be powered by a battery, by an engine or a combination of both. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid makes any road trip extremely efficient because the Pacifica Hybrid can travel up to 566 miles on a full tank of gas and fully-charged battery, so that means its affordable and there is less time spent filling up at the gas station.
On the other hand, the Dodge Durango is an ideal option for a large family that needs a vehicle that can offer a little more power and speed when it is needed.
The Dodge Durango is available with a 3.6-liter V6 engine, a 5.7L HEMI V8 engine, and the all-new 6.4L HEMI V8 engine, and the Durango is available with rear-wheel-drive (RWD), which offers an exciting muscle car feel, or with all-wheel-drive (AWD) (Dodge Durango SRT is only available with AWD). Additionally the power of the 5.7L and 6.4L engine is enough power to gives parents just enough thrill behind the wheel.
The 5.7L engine gives the Durango a towing capacity of 7,400 pounds, and the 6.4L engine gives the Durango a best-in-class V8 towing capacity of 8,700 pounds — and both of those capacities are plenty to tow a trailer full of jet skis or even a small boat.
Finally, the Dodge Durango offers families that extra bit of style when wanted. Heading out to South Beach for the night? The Durango has just enough umph to stand out from the crowd.
