History of the Durango
Introduced in 1998 to compete in the growing SUV market, the Durango was a big, powerful alternative to minivans that came equipped with four-wheel drive and a V8 engine. That original V8, which was 5.2 liters, only put out around 230 horsepower with 300 lb-ft, of torque, though.
Today, the 2015 Durango's 5.7-liter HEMI V8 has 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft. of torque. It's even more efficient too. Where the original 1998 Durango got about 17 mpg on the highway, the more powerful and more capable 2015 model gets 23, despite also being much bigger than its predecessor.
When creating the Durango, Dodge did extensive market research to discover what car buyers wanted most in a vehicle. Obviously everyone wants different things, but the Durango really struck a fine balance. Whether the buyer wanted power, interior space, towing capability, or great handling, Dodge was going to provide them the absolute best.
And while marketed as a compact SUV, the Durango was really more of a mid-size SUV. The reason it was marketed as compact was because smaller SUVs were hitting the market and the company was looking to capitalize on this fact. Dodge wanted to have the most powerful, spacious, and most capable "compact" SUV available. And in that respect, they did!
Why the Durango is the Best Minivan Alternative
The modern minivan may have a lot of space, but it's slow and incapable of any task beyond the absolute basics. The Durango, on the other hand, offers the space of the minivan, the styling of an SUV, great power and performance, and is capable of towing up to 6,200 pounds (with the base model alone)!
The Durango's 3.6-liter V6 gives entry-level buyers access to 290 horsepower and 260 lb-ft. of torque, which is more than enough to get up and go when necessary. If you upgrade to the 5.7-liter HEMI V8, you'll have access to 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft. of torque. Choosing to take that upgrade to the V8 also gives you more towing capacity, which goes up to an incredible 7,400 pounds total.
On top of overall performance and capability, the Durango's styling is one of the main reasons buyers choose it over a traditional minivan. Where the styling for minivans has changed very little over the years, the Durango's style has evolved to an elegant, yet tough as nails type of look. It's got just enough aggressive styling to command presence on the road while not overdoing it like some vehicles do.
Getting the Know the R/T Trim
In its review of the 2015 Durango R/T, Car and Driver said "What to do when you want to look bad as hell but need to haul around as many as six other people? You could buy this Dodge Durango R/T."
And really, that's the perfect summary for the R/T. It looks really, really good, but is a people hauler at the end of the day too. But on top of that, it features to power of Dodge's 5.7-liter HEMI V8, a great suspension for a more sporty ride, beautiful 20-inch wheels, as well as blacked-out exterior body modifications that give it an even more aggressive look when compared to the base Durango.
With all of its power and features, the R/T is also one of the most affordable high-end SUVs you can buy compared to others like the Chevy Tahoe. Its $39,795 starting price means that you can add in comfort options while still saving money compared to other brands.
Features to Keep Everyone Happy
One of the most important parts of a minivan for many buyers in the back seat entertainment it offers kids. Because keeping the little ones entertained often means the difference between a stress-free trip and a stressful trip. The drop-down entertainment system was the saving grace on many road trips, but has now evolved to match the times, and is available on the 2015 Dodge Durango.
The problem with the classic rear-seat entertainment system is that it was only capable of watching one thing at a time. That means two conflicting opinions could lead to the trouble you were trying to avoid by getting the entertainment system in the first place.
The rear-seat entertainment option on the Durango, however, includes two headrest-mounted nine-inch screens that are able to independently operate. So one person can be watching a DVD or Blu-Ray on one screen while another plays a movie, video game, or anything else via the A/V and HDMI input options on the side of the screen.
So the days of having the control fighting over who's in control of the in-car entertainment are over.
