Aventura CJDR 2018 Dodge Durango

Spring is here, Summer is already barreling down on us with that South Florida heat, and those of you who are still in school, classes are coming to an end soon enough. Once school’s out for summer, that means it’s time for a family vacation, and what better way than to take a long trip for some sight-seeing and making new memories? Even better, why leave home when you can take a piece of it with you by ditching the airfare and taking a road trip to the next vacation spot? With SUVs and Crossovers like the 2018 Dodge Durango, there’s plenty of space, power, and entertainment.

Interior Space

Not just for cargo, the 2018 Dodge Durango can seat up to five or seven passengers. Coming standard with a second-row 60/40 split bench seat, smaller families can can fit a lot of cargo in the back of the vehicle and not feel crowded. If looking for a little more comfort, triple-zone automatic a/c control comes standard and leather upholstery options begin with the Dodge Durango GT trim. When it comes to carrying more cargo, that 60/40 split-bench comes in handy when space is only needed for two passengers, because when the second-row seat is folded down there is 84.5 cubic-feet of space for cargo.

Is this a bigger family expedition? By opting in for the third-row seating group (only possible for the SXT and SXT Plus trims), the 2018 Dodge Durango can seat seven people. If the family is still small and you just have kids who require a little more personal space when sitting next to each other for long periods of time, consumers can opt-in for second-row captain chairs instead of a bench seat on all 2018 Dodge Durango trims except the base (SXT). Changing to captain chairs will limit the seating capacity to four in all trims where the option is possible though, so keep that in mind too.

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.
