The Dodge Durango is a best-in-class midsize SUV that provides more of what drivers want: performance, technology, bold style inside and out, excellent occupant protection and plenty of luxury. For drivers who demand the best, the Citadel trim is the right choice and it's available here at Colonial Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Hudson in Hudson, Massachusetts.
The seven-passenger 2014 Dodge Durango (MSRP from $29,995) offers five well-equipped variants: SXT, SXT Plus, Limited, R/T and the luxurious, seriously capable top-of-the-line Citadel.
U.S. News ranked the Durango ahead of the Nissan Murano, Mazda CX-9, Chevrolet Traverse, Toyota Highlander, Kia Sorento, GMC Acadia, Honda Pilot and both the Ford Explorer and the Ford Edge. Edmunds.com selected it as 2014 “Most Popular” in the “Large Traditional SUV” category, and it was one of Strategic Vision’s “Most Loved Vehicles in America” in the “Mid-Size SUV” category. In their review, AutoTrader editors said, “The 2014 Dodge Durango is the rare SUV that isn't just a tall station wagon with tough-guy styling cues… the Durango's rear-wheel drive platform gives it real credibility as a workhorse, whether you're towing things or heading off-road. Yet the Grand Cherokee's carlike ride and handling are present here, as well, so the Durango gives up nothing to the Ford Explorers of the world as a suburban errand-runner. Imagine that: an SUV that genuinely provides the best of both worlds.”
The Durango Citadel is powered by a strong 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that pumps out 290 hp and 260 lb/ft of torque through an eight-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain enables the Durango to return an EPA-estimated 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway and gives it the ability to tow up to a best-in-class 6,200 pounds. Also available is a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that bumps the power up to 360 hp and 390 lb/ft of torque, and increases towing capacity to a best-in-class 7,400 pounds. The V8 features Fuel Saver technology that can deactivate up to half of the eight cylinders under light driving conditions, helping the HEMI-equipped Durango deliver an EPA-estimated 23 mpg highway.
The Citadel differentiates itself from its siblings with an abundance of luxury equipment. Highlights include a chrome-surround grille, power liftgate, sunroof, High Intensity Discharge Bi-Xenon headlamps with auto leveling and automatic dimming, heated exterior mirrors, rain-sensitive windshield wipers and large, 20-inch polished aluminum wheels. Inside, the Citadel features the best-in-class Uconnect® 8.4 infotainment system with Navigation and Voice Recognition, SiriusXM Satellite Radio and Travel Link, a nine-speaker Alpine audio system, Nappa leather seating surfaces, ventilated front seats, eight-way power front seats, a power tilt and telescoping steering column, and a perforated and heated leather-wrapped steering wheel.
For those longer trips, choose the available Rear DVD Entertainment Center that adds a Blu-ray compatible DVD player and two flip-up seat-back-mounted screens.
The versatile Durango offers 50 seating configurations and 85 cubic feet of cargo capacity, so whether you’re on a family vacation or a massive hardware store run, you’ll know everything will be able to fit.
A 2013 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety “Top Safety Pick,” the Durango is standard with Electronic Stability Control, All Speed Traction Control, Trailer Sway Control, and Antilock Brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution. The Citadel adds a ParkView rear backup camera, ParkSense rear park assist, and an available Technology Group that combines Blind-Spot Monitoring/Rear Cross Path Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision warning with Crash Mitigation.
Icing the cake are a five-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty with 24-hour Roadside Assistance and a three-year/36,000-mile Basic Limited Warranty, for worry-free driving.
