With everything from all-weather performance to true tire-burning speed, the 2020 Dodge Durango is the power player of the three-row SUV segment.
Why choose the 2020 Dodge Durango?
Get the Durango for its sporty, speedy capabilities and rugged personality. This Dodge SUV is the muscle-car version of three-row SUVs, giving you up to 475 horsepower and exceptional towing capabilities. Add the all-wheel-drive system with low-range gearing for true off-road adventure.
Inside, the Durango’s comfort game is strong. All three rows are big on space, giving all seven passengers the perfect amount of leg and elbow room for road trips. You’ll also love this SUV’s tech features, which include a large, responsive touchscreen infotainment interface and standard smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Which 2020 Dodge Durango trim level is the best?
Five trim models give you everything from rugged power to blazing speed. Choose from the SXT, GT, Citadel, R/T, and SRT for the features you want at a price that suits you.
The SXT gives you rugged performance and a wealth of standard tech features, all of which comes at a great price. Move up to the GT for extra convenience with remote ignition technology, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a power liftgate. The Citadel adds to these features with sleek interior style via leather-and-vinyl upholstery and a bigger, 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment interface.
With the R/T, you’ll enjoy greater speed with standard V8 performance. The R/T also increases head-turning power with more aggressive exterior styling.
The top-of-the-line SRT is also focused on speed, giving you the line’s most capable engine (more on this below) and a bevy of high-end performance gear. Inside, the SRT puts a greater emphasis on luxury, with upgraded leather and simulated-suede upholstery and ventilated front seats.
Which 2020 Dodge Durango is the fastest?
At the top of the 2020 Dodge Durango trim lineup, you’ll find the SRT, the line’s fastest SUV. Its 6.4-liter V8 engine supplies you with 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, which translates to blistering speed. The SRT is also equipped with high-end performance gear – like Brembo brakes, an electronic limited-slip differential, and a sports-tuned suspension – to bolster its position as America’s most capable three-row SUV. The SRT’s standard all-wheel-drive system is the cherry on top of all this sporty performance gear, maximizing your grip on the pavement.
The SRT isn’t the only Durango whose powertrain is big on muscle. The base engine – standard on the SXT, GT, and Citadel trim models – is a 3.6-liter V6 that makes 295 horses and 260 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive is also optional for these models, upgrading performance around tight turns and on wet roads. And the all-wheel-drive system’s low-range gearing makes for an engaging off-road ride.
There’s a 5.7-liter V8 engine under the R/T hood. Drivers can tap into its 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque for plenty of raw speed. The R/T is also available with sporty all-wheel drive.
How much can the 2020 Dodge Durango tow?
Thanks to its best-in-class power, the Durango can tow best-in-class figures. Naturally, capabilities vary according to which powertrain you select. The SRT’s 6.4-liter V8 engine will get you the most heft. Add the Towing package to your SRT to tow trailers weighing up to 8,700 pounds.
Don’t worry though, other Durango powertrains are also boat-ready. The R/T’s 5.7-liter V8 engine will help you tow 7,400 pounds’ worth of boat. Max tow ratings for Durango models with the 3.6-liter V6 engine reach 6,200 pounds. Note that even with the base engine, the Durango bests three-row competitors with its towing prowess.
