2016 Dodge Durango

2016 Dodge Durango Release Date, Price, Diesel, Engine, Specs – The upcoming 2016 Dodge Durango is a vehicle which is a very nice combination between an SUV and a crossover car. The release is actually a very nice and comfy family car with some great performance features as well. But the only downfall of the car is that its fuel economy specs are not favorable, so if you are willing to overlook the thirst you are in for a nice ride.

The car is certainly not an off-road vehicle nor does it incorporate carlike crossover characteristics. In fact it is something in between with some very nice driving ability as well. It includes three rows of seats much like the one that is seen in the Jeep Cherokee but the outside look is built upon the architecture that is seen in the GL-Class and M-Class from Mercedes.

The bottom line is that the 2016 Dodge Durango is a utility vehicle with much rugged capabilities and also very nice and even exceptional road manners. It uses a handsome styling to attract the people from the outside and also interior comfort from the inside. Judging from the pictures it is a handsome choice but to get to know the essence of the car you can study the review and find out more.

The shape of the 2016 Dodge Durango is a really handsome one, in fact it is presumed as one of the most handsomest looking three-row SUV cars on the market. It achieves that by combining the traditional characteristics of a typical SUV with some contemporary features that now come included. This was not always the characteristic of a Durango vehicle. The late models were characterized by a rugged and imposing look which did not have anything handsome about it. But off late Dodge has managed to trim down its car and by using some sleeker lines and master craftsmanship managed to make this car what it is today. The latest designs represent a wholesome design of a crossover vehicle seen in the Dodge Durango.

The car incorporates a big crosshair grille and combines it with a silhouette that does not have a protruding arch. It is boxy, but not too much boxy as it contains a shape which is just enough not to make it be slab sided. From the back it does look like a truck as it has some monochrome details to it with a duel exhaust system. But it has been combined in a way that it enhances the sport side of the car and not imposing too much of the ruggedness of the car. It now even includes some sporty LED racetrack lights that brighten up the mood considerably. All models except the SXT base version receive the hockey-stick-shaped LED running lights while the R/T and Citadel trims have HID lights matted on top.  this truly presents one of the better designs for the Durango and its slimmed down crosshair grille makes a world of the changes that have been imposed.

Interior

On the inside, Dodge had decided to incorporate a very different philosophy for the interior design. There are absolutely none of the traditional characteristics of a truck vehicle carried over inside. The 2016 model will continue a modern inside look which will characterize it as a more contemporary vehicle than before.  The most noticeable change is seen in the dahs which has thin metallic rims which frame the major controls and with the added infotainment touchscreen even enhance the usefulness. There is some leather upholstery added which uses a combination of red inserts and red stitching with white trim rims. This is even brought to the R/T trim and makes it a more of a luxury car than a utility vehicle.

The previous model year has incorporated the use of Nappa leather interior , which will be available for the R/T trim this year as a standard option. This year the greatest announcement is the use of new colors schemes that will be used as well. They are the Red Pearl, Luxury Brown, Light Brownstone and Ivory Pearl Tri-coat. Also a great addition are going to be the new packages that were announced but will be offered some time after the initial release of the base model. Announced were the new Brass Monkey Appearance Package and a Platinum Appearance Package, optional for the Citadel trims.

Engine

There are a couple of very powerful engines announced for the new Dodge Durango vehicle. The base version is going to be the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6  which can make 290 horsepower (or 295 hp) and 260 pound-feet. The second choice is the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 that makes 360 hp and 390 lb-ft.. Both will be available with an eight-speed auto to achieve acceptable fuel-economy numbers. To help the fuel economy as much as possible, the engines use Fuel Saver Technology for the Hemi and top-start technology for the V-6 engine. But the numbers are still not so favorable for the fuel consumption of the Durango as they measure to 14/23 mpg, or 17 mpg combined, or 14/22 mpg or 16 mpg combined. with the all-wheel drive.

Price and release date

The release date for the 2016 Dodge Durango is set for next year. We can expect to see the vehicle in action of April when it will be available for sale. The base MSRP rating is set at 30,495  USD, while the price of higher trims is of course higher, but more details on that will be released with the debut of the car.
