The first-generation Dodge Durango was released in the market in 1997. It was offered as a durable seven-seater SUV based on the features of a truck.
In 2003, a second-generation Dodge Durango concept was unveiled at the North American Auto Show. The revamped SUV featured a fully boxed, larger frame with design reference from the Dodge Powerbox. In 2004, it was officially introduced with a refreshed rear suspension for added agility.
Initially, the legendary automobile company announced that the Dodge Durango will be discontinued after its 2009 model release but in August 2010, teaser photos of the beloved SUV were released in an internet site as its third generation.
Locally, a refreshed Dodge Durango was quietly introduced in December 2019 fitted with exceptional exterior and interior highlights.
Both variants of the Dodge Durango measure 5,075mm long, 1,925mm wide, and 1,801mm tall. This modern SUV is known for its signature mighty stance made even fiercer with contemporary curves and sleek lines. Other notable highlights include the strikingly bold crosshair chrome grille, wide LED headlamps that may be upgraded to HID or high-beam controlled with an optional LED daytime running lights, class-exclusive race track rear lights made up of 192 LEDs gorgeously assembled to create a ribbon-like pattern, and a Stow N Place roof rack system with foldable crossbars feature.
To complement its beefed-up body structure, the Dodge Durango wears 18-inch to 20-inch aluminum wheels with a wide range of chiseled designs to choose from.
The luxurious interior of the Dodge Durango can accommodate seven fully grown adults. It can be adjusted to 50 different configurations that also allows loading of bulky cargo thanks to its 84.5 maximum cubic space. Other highlights in the cabin include customizable leather seats in seven tones and detailings, a steering wheel with smart features and controls with a paddle shifter, a seven-inch driver information digital display, automatic three-zone temperature control, and 115-volt power outlet and USB port at the second row.
