About Dodge Durango
The Dodge Durango is a mid-size sports car. Production of the third-generation Durango will begin in the 2011 model year. Built on the same platform as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, it has been assembled in a single volume at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit, Michigan, since late 2010. Production of the third-generation Durango began in 2011. It is built on the same chassis as the Jeep Grand Cherokee and features a unique body design. Since late 2010, it has been assembled at the Jefferson North assembly plant in Detroit, Michigan. Originally, the eight-seat Durango had the third row of seats in the rear, like many older pickup trucks. To accommodate a more practical third row, Dodge shortened the length of the front doors. The roof was raised two inches above the front seats to create more room in the stadium. The Durango's roof rack is designed to hide the raised roof.
By 2000, the new Magnum V8 engine was standard on all-wheel-drive models. The Magnum V6 engine was no longer available, and by the end of the production season, only V8 engines were available. The high-performance Durango R/T model was equipped with the powerful Magnum V8 engine and all-wheel drive. In 2002, a new version of the Durango, the SXT, was offered as a base model. In 2003, the Durango underwent minor mechanical changes, the most significant of which was the installation of four-wheel disc brakes. The second-generation Durango was first shown as the Dodge Durango R/T concept at the 2003 Detroit Auto Show. It was launched shortly before its Dakota counterpart. Like the Dakota, it has much in common with the large Dodge Ram pickup truck. A new coil-spring rear suspension and a full-size rear axle were introduced in 2004. The rear axle has a Watt arm that centers the axle. It reduces posterior axle slippage on uneven surfaces and allows for lowering and enlarging cargo space.

Following the announcement that production of the Durango would cease after the 2009 model year, Dodge launched a website and promotional images of the third-generation Dodge Durango on August 16, 2010. The third-generation Durango was manufactured alongside the Jeep Grand Cherokee at Detroit, Michigan's Jefferson North assembly plant. It has a slightly longer wheelbase than the Grand Cherokee and features three rows of seating. The third-generation Durango has four engines. The base engine is the new V6 engine. A Hemi V8 engine is available in "economy" mode. The 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8 will be available in the 2021 version of the SRT Hellcat. However, the 6.2L Hemi V8 engine that powers the Durango SRT Hellcat is no longer available starting with the 2022 model year. It cannot be modified to meet more stringent emissions requirements.
The 2017 Dodge Durango Limited has been discontinued and replaced with the new GT trim level, while the base SXT trim is now available with three seats for seven passengers. The Dodge Durango GT trim level is offered in R/T trim and with an SRT-style grille. The new GT Plus trim enhances the GT trim with more features, including heated first- and second-row seats, steering wheel, driver's seat, radio, and dual-mode memory mirrors. The 2021 Durango features updated bodywork, including revised bumpers and headlights, three air intake options, and six new wheel arches. SXT and GT models come standard with the new Uconnect 5 instrument cluster.
