It’s all about crossovers and minivans, friend, and here at Miami Lakes Automall, we got plenty of them to choose from.

Dodge

Are there really any guesses to make when it comes to Dodge? The Dodge Grand Caravan has been an American classic for over 30 years, and some of us may even remember riding around in some of the earlier models. Able to tow up to 3,600 pounds, the Grand Caravan offers over 140 cubic feet for storing cargo and equipment. Plus, with its Stow ‘n Go seating system in the second- and third-row seats, the minivan can seat up to seven people, has multiple seating arrangements, and the Stow ‘n Go compartments can be used for extra storage.

The Dodge Durango is another great choice and designed for families. Packed with all sorts of technology, such as Uconnect 8.4 with navigation, dual-screen Blu-Ray entertainment on 9-inch screens, available wi-fi hotspot and bluetooth connectivity, not only can this SUV keep the little ones entertained on long drives, it can offer older occupants a place to plug in if need be. The cargo space goes up to 84.5 cubic-feet, enough for an entire picnic or a bunch of sports gear no problem.

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)

Dodge Durango SRT in 2017 or 2018 – Is It True?

dodge-durango-srt-miami-lakes-auto-mall

There have been rumors floating around that Dodge may produce a performance Dodge Durango SRT in 2017 or 2018, and from a recent stream of articles, the rumor may be true.

Although it is not official, Dodge and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) officials have made several comments that the FCA and Dodge are focusing their efforts to focus on production of trucks and SUVs. So the addition of a performance Durango would make sense. Additionally, from the tweaks and changes Dodge recently announced on the 2017 model lineup, a Durango SRT would be a nice addition to the recently condensed 2017 Durango lineup.

So what could we expect if Dodge were to create an SRT Durango? Power and performance.  It is expected that a Durango SRT would be equipped with the same 6.4-liter V8 SRT engine that is currently used in the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT models. This engine generates up to 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.

This new engine world just be icing on the cake to the current Durango lineup, which is already full of powerful and practical features. The Durango has plenty of room for kids, their friends and beach or soccer equipment in the seven passenger, three-row SUV. When the driver needs room for cargo, the vehicle’s 60/40 Second-Row 60/40 fold and tumble seats and 50/50 split third-row folding seats easily fold down and provide 84.5 cubic feet of space.

How the Dodge Durango’s Engines Have Evolved

durango-1

The Dodge Durango’s engine has evolved quite a bit since the vehicle first hit the market in 1997. Before we had the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, we had several Magnum V8s and Corsair V8s included under the vehicle’s hood. As you’ll learn, these changes are certainly a good thing.

Before you go shopping for a Dodge Durango in Miami, see how the nameplate’s engines have evolved over the years…
