What are the 2021 Durango’s Engine Options?
Several powerful engine options are available for the 2021 Durango and which one you get depends on trim level. The SXT starts things off nicely with a 3.6-liter V6 that comes with 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, which pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission. You can get this engine with four-wheel-drive on the SXT and the GT. Moving to the R/T brings you a 5.7-liter V8 that pumps out 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque and allows for a towing capacity of 7,400 pounds. While these engines are powerful, the SRT ups the ante with a 6.4-liter V8 with 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. While these engines are amazing, if you want a tad more power, the SRT Hellcat provides you with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that lights up the pavement with 710 horses and 645 lb-ft of torque.
Can you tell me about the features of the 2021 Durango?
We sure can! There are five trim levels of the 2021 Durango, and each one comes with an inspiring amount of features. Starting things off is the SXT trim, which comes with a push-button start, three-zone climate control, power-folding third-row headrests, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Moving up to the GT adds a remote ignition, a power liftgate, a power driver’s seat, a 115-volt power outlet, and a satellite radio. More luxury features are available with the Citadel as it has leather and vinyl upholstery, heated front and second-row seats, and a nine-speaker stereo with a subwoofer. The R/T is a performance-oriented trim as it comes with upgraded brakes, and it also looks and drives more aggressively. If you are looking for raw, on-road power, the top of the line SRT is for you. It comes with an electronic limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes, and performance-tuned suspension. Also standard are upgraded leather, simulated-suede upholstery, and ventilated front seats. A new SRT Hellcat variant adds a powerful new engine and a new front fascia with a chin splitter.
