What is the Durango?
If you love muscle cars but find yourself needing an SUV, look no further than the Dodge Durango. It sports a broad-shouldered, burly look and backs up that powerful styling with, well, power. Besides the standard 3.6-liter V6 engine, there are two V8 engines to choose from, including the 475-horsepower SRT 392. Yep, you read that right — the ultra-powerful SRT Hellcat (with a not-insignificant 710 hp) was only available for the 2021 Durango. While we'll miss the roar of the supercharged V8, the Durango remains notable for its three rows of seating and a towing capacity of up to 8,700 pounds. If you like doing four-wheel burnouts and towing boats, there should really be no other vehicle on your shopping list.
The Dodge got a moderate styling refresh and some interior tweaks, including a new 10.1-inch infotainment screen, for 2021, so Dodge is pretty much leaving the Durango alone for the new model year. There is a strongly rumored redesign in the Durango's future, but we can't see that happening until 2023.
