Among updates found in the Dodge Durango for the 2019 version are optional leather seats in the base SXT, available cloth seating in the mid-range GT, and a new 825-watt Harman/Kardon audio system in the Citadel and R/T models. The Citadel receives second-row captain’s chairs as standard and the GT can be ordered with a functional hood scoop, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert are now standalone options on all Durangos, and ordering the Trailer Tow package now includes an integrated trailer brake.
The Durango’s optional 360-hp V-8 greatly boosts towing capacity, while the 293-hp V-6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission are a more efficient pairing. Inside, the Durango packs some of the best infotainment systems in the market which gives competitors good ides to rival.
A rear-seat entertainment system, also optional, adds dual screens and provides HDMI and RCA ports to connect even more devices. Bluetooth phone connectivity is standard on all trims; SXT Plus trims and above offer audio streaming.It has also been hailed for quite a good audio quality for Bluetooth phone calls.
Durango is a road ready car that can equally handle off-roads rather well. With what we’ve seen so far it is an impressive update worth try out.
