2021 Dodge Durango Review, Specs & New Features
The updated model comes with an upgrade to both the style and features found in the Durango; the 2021 model boasts a new infotainment system configuration--an optional 10.1-inch touchscreen with an updated version of the Uconnect interface. Dodge also makes a wireless smartphone charging pad available for the first time.
For those drivers who will be using the 2021 Dodge Durango for its workhorse capabilities, the top trim levels now offer a dedicated towing mode and new Tow N Go package to increase maximum towing capacity to 3,946 kg.
The exterior of the 2021 Dodge Durango was updated in the refresh, receiving new headlamps, an upgraded grille, a revised front bumper, and a new rear spoiler. The interior design changes are even more evident within the cabin. A driver-oriented dashboard now fills the space, featuring a left-angled infotainment display and controls to allow for easier and safer driver access.
Labelled the most powerful SUV, the 2021 Dodge Durango rises to the challenge with its powertrain options. Standard is a 3.6-litre VVT V6 engine, which is more than capable, but the optional engines provide optimized performance. The R/T model comes standard with a 5.7-litre HEMI VVT V8 engine, while the SRT 392 model boasts a 6.4-litre HEMI SRT V8 that delivers 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
The 2021 Dodge Durango features the new Uconnect 5 multimedia system, one of the most intuitive systems available. It offers navigation, SiriusXM 360L, and the ability to connect two smartphones to Bluetooth simultaneously.
All models of the 2021 Dodge Durango come standard with a ParkView rear backup camera and Park-Sense rear park assist system, as well as other safety features. Dodge also offers many other driver-assist technologies as optional on the Durango, including automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist.
