New Dodge Durango Sevierville TN

The new Dodge Durango at Jim Cogdill Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram in Sevierville TN straddles the line between a car-based crossover and an old-school sport utility vehicle. It certainly looks rugged like a traditional SUV and boasts heavy-duty towing capabilities, particularly when it's hiding a big Hemi V8 engine underhood. But the comfortable ride, space-efficient interior and reasonably good handling afforded by its unibody design means it drives more like a car than truck-based competitors such as the Toyota 4Runner or Chevy Tahoe. Families with big toys to haul around Sevierville, TN, may find the Durango strikes an ideal balance between car and truck.

There are no changes for new Dodge Durango at Jim Cogdill Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram of Sevierville TN , although there are a few new aesthetic upgrades that can be had. These include the Premium Interior Group, which includes a suedecloth headliner and instrument panel.

The minimal updates come despite the fact that the Durango has been on the market in its current form for a full decade. Nevertheless, it still offers a compelling package with seating for up to seven passengers and the buyer's choice of a standard V6 engine with 290 horsepower or one of two V8 options. There's a 5.7-liter that offers 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque, while the 392-badged SRT model boasts 475 hp and 470 lb-ft. The V6 can tow 6,200 pounds, which is enough to beat any of its most popular competitors. The 5.7-liter V8 editions can tow as much as 7,400 lbs, and the beefy SRT leads the like-sized utility vehicle segment with towing capacity of 8,700 lbs.

The new Dodge Durango from Jim Cogdill Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram is offered in several trim levels, starting with the SXT and progressing through GT, R/T and Citadel tiers before peaking with the aforementioned high-performance SRT that can accelerate from 0-60 in a scant 4.4 seconds. The 5.7-liter V8 comes with the R/T trim, all others (minus the fire-breathing SRT, of course) get a 3.6-liter V6 as standard equipment. Four-wheel drive is optional across the board, again with the exception of the SRT that gets all-wheel drive standard. Six-cylinder Durangos achieve EPA-estimated fuel mileage ratings of 19 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 21 combined with either rear- or all-wheel drive. The V8 models return 14 mpg city, 22 mpg highway and 17 mpg combined. The SRT gets 13 mpg city, 19 mpg highway and 15 mpg combined, though buyers of that overpowered brute probably don't care all that much about efficiency. Everyone else might, however, and the Durango's sub-par fuel economy is a serious reason to consider another, more fuel-efficient large crossover.
