The 2019 Dodge Durango provides three strong engines that can be found under the hood. In addition to engine options, there are five trims for consumers to choose from with various levels of luxury and high-end performance. Those trims are SXT, GT, Citadel, RT and top-trim Durango SRT. All come with all-wheel-drive standard except for the SRT, that provides rear-wheel-drive standard.

3.6L Pentastar V6 Engine

The Fiat Chrysler Automobiles classic 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine is the base engine. Drivers will gain a solid engine with strength and reliability with a Pentastar V6 that gains 295 horsepower. This engine is paired to the TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission and provides a best-in-class V6 highway fuel economy of 30 MPG.

 

5.7L HEMI V8 Engine

Owners that want more explosive strength that’s readily available from the start can opt-in for the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine. Providing best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque, all of that power gives the 2019 Dodge Durango quite a strong powertrain option. The HEMI V8 is made with variable valve timing technology (VVT). VVT combined with a multi-displacement system helps reserve gas and provides better fuel efficiency when driving at steady speeds. The 5.7-Liter is standard for the R/T trim, provides owners with a highway fuel economy of 25 mpg and provides a best-in-class maximum towing capacity of up to 7,400 pounds.

 

6.4-Liter V8 Engine

Available for only the 2019 Dodge Durango SRT, this powertrain is the option for those that want to have the best-of-the-best. With unlocked speed and power, this engine gets the most bang for the customers buck. Considering in just 4.4 seconds this three-row SUV can move from 0-60 mph, with a maximum of 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, there’s no denying this engine’s strength. Towing is also made easy with a best-in-class towing capacity of 8,700 maximum towing.
