2017 Dodge Durango Cargo Space

Dodge Durango Beats The Competition, But Don’t Just Take Our Word

2017-dodge-durango-shaker (2)

The auto market is swarming with SUVs and crossovers these days, and with all of the available options it’s hard to know how to separate the good from the not-so-good. That’s why it’s important to do one’s research when car shopping. It’s even better if you have a go-to blog to read about the choices out there. Excuse us while we plug in this neon sign. Today, we’re talking about the Dodge Durango.

Stunning Reviews

Let’s get past the fluff and the sale and right to why the 2017 Dodge Durango beats the competition. A quick Google search shows you many reviews for this SUV, and we can’t say we’re surprised when they’re all great. U.S. News gives it an 8.4/10; Car and Driver gives it a 4/5; Edmunds.com gives the Durango a 4.9/5; and KBB gives it a 9.1/10. That’s a whole lot of sources giving the Dodge Durango superb ratings.

U.S. News highlights the powerful V8 option for those that want to tow and haul cargo (7,400 pounds towing capacity). However, if you don’t need to tow, the Dodge Durango has 84.5 cubic-feet of cargo space*. Just look at the picture above, that’s ridiculous. Plus, Uconnect has gotten so good these days, available with Bluetooth connectivity and a Wi-Fi hotspot, and if you consider the available dual-screen Blu-Ray entertainment systems, drivers and passengers can find many ways to be entertained.

Do You Know These Popular Dodge Terms?

Miami Lakes Popular Dodge Terms

Dodge has been making a name for itself since the late 1950’s, and since the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, they began their muscle car legacy. From that point on, they developed new terms for all of their special performance car features.

Shaker Hood

Also known as the “shaker scoop,” a shaker hood has a scoop-shaped unit attached to the air intake of a car engine that protrudes through an opening in the hood. As the engine makes use of air and fuel, the vibration of engine combustion causes the scoop to shake, giving the illusion that the entire car is shaking due to the power of the engine. It was used on many cars, such as the 1969 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet, the 1969/1970 Boss 302 Mustang, as well as the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda before appearing on the 1970 second generation of the Dodge Challenger. Today however, no one thinks of the shaker hood without immediately also thinking of Dodge.

Miami Lakes Dodge Durango Brass Monkey

Dodge Durango Brass Monkey is One Funky Monkey

Miami Lakes Dodge Durango Brass Monkey

The Dodge Durango Brass Monkey will crush other SUVs by appearance alone. Some of the finer accessories have been made available to the consumer, and the Brass Monkey package brings back the look of the Durango Limited, a trim that is no longer available. The package was released as an option for the Durango R/T first, but Dodge knows not all of its consumers can jump the gap to $40k+ with ease. So they recently unleashed the Brass Monkey for the Dodge Durango GT for people who are more budget conscious, and it’s one funky monkey. (they did the same thing with the Dodge Scat Pack Dynamics Package)
