The 2018 Dodge Durango is built to take families anywhere they need to go, from school drop-offs to long roads trips. MotorTrend has a 2018 Durango R/T model in their long-term fleet for just such testing purposes. At the end of two months, this Durango has completed holiday road trips through inclement weather. Here are some of the team’s observations on living with the Durango!
This Durango conducted its first road trip over Thanksgiving weekend, covering 2,173 miles in just under 40 hours. Over the course of this trip, the 2018 Dodge Durango carried up to seven passengers at a time, plus a dog. With adults filling the front and second row, there was plenty of room to accommodate a dog crate in the cargo area. Plus, the Durango’s cargo area comes with multiple hooks and tie-down points to secure cargo like a pet crate.
The Durango is also comfortable inside for all your passengers. With temperatures below freezing, the Durango’s interior stays toasty, especially with available heated and ventilated front seats. The second row has easy access to their own temperature control panel, as well as a USB and 115-volt outlet for charging. The 2018 Dodge Durango offers a driver-oriented cockpit with lots of handy driver assist features. You can choose between regular or adaptive cruise control, which came in handy on this road trip. The Durango helps keep your family safe on trips with blind-spot monitoring, superb brakes with Rain Brake Support, electronic stability control, and much more.
Keeping everybody entertained on a long trip is also important! That’s why the 2018 Dodge Durango comes with a superb Uconnect infotainment system ready to go. You can play your favorite music and podcasts instantly with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Integrated Uconnect Voice Command lets you take control without taking your hands off the wheel. You’ll also get Bluetooth Streaming Audio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio to cover all your musical bases. Plus, the available Uconnect 4 NAV system also offers integrated Navigation, SiriusXM Guardian, SiriusXM Traffic Plus, and SiriusXM Travel Link.
No matter where you’re going, the 2018 Dodge Durango is up for the task. The standard 3.6L V6 engine can tow up to 6,200 pounds, while the 5.7L V8 offers up to 7,400 pounds. If you need more, the new Durango SRT has a 6.4L HEMI V8 engine that will move 8,700 pounds, the best in its class. The Durango also has Trailer Sway Control and other technologies that make it safe and easy to haul your vacation with you. Plus, the two available all-wheel-drive systems enhance your Durango’s traction and give you confident driving and towing in all kinds of road conditions.
