What powers the 2022 Dodge Durango?
Being a muscle car brand, Dodge takes their engines very seriously, so that’s where we’ll start. Standard under the hood of the Durango is a 3.6L Pentastar V6 providing drivers with 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. While this is impressive for a baseline engine, some drivers may seek more power. And no one does more power better than Dodge! That’s why the HEMI 5.7L V8 is available pumping out 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. To take that one step further, the SRT 392 trim comes exclusively with a 392-cubic inch HEMI 6.4L V8 that rips out a heart-pounding 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. All three Durango engines are paired with a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission with forward gears for optimal performance. The Durango comes standard with rear-wheel drive, however better all-weather performance can be achieved with the all-wheel drive variants.
What standard and available features come with the 2022 Durango?
While the 2022 Durango’s engine lineup is impressive, the trim level lineup is even moreso! Looking at the SXT trim from the outside, you’ll find bright chrome roof rails, LED headlights, taillights, and fog lights, heated power-adjustable side mirrors, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Inside of the base trim, you’ll find dual-zone automatic climate control, a 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, seven seats, an 8.4-inch Uconnect 5 infotainment touchscreen, and a proximity key for the doors and ignition. Climbing the trim level lineup, you’ll find exterior features like 20 or 21-inch alloy wheels, a power liftgate, remote start, dual exhaust outlets, a single or dual-pane sunroof, a standard 5.7L V8, and more. Inside the mid-level trims, you’ll find a 10.1-inch touchscreen, leather upholstery, heated front seats, Alpine premium audio with nine speakers, a power-adjustable tilt and telescoping steering wheel, 8-way power-adustable front seats, and more. Finally, topping off the lineup is the muscly SRT 392 trim. This captures the muscle car spirit Dodge is so proud of with a standard 6.4L V8 engine with all-wheel drive, paddle shifters, Bilstien adaptive high-performance suspension, a functional hood scoop, Brembo high-performance brakes, heated/cooled front seats, heated rear seats, and integrated voice-activated navigation.
