Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Dodge Durango?

The Dodge Durango delivers muscle car power and feel in a large, three-row SUV. Available with rear- or all-wheel drive, the Durango competes with the Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Explorer and Honda Pilot. With seating for up to seven people, the Durango has a standard 295-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine. Two optional V-8 engines are offered: a 360-hp, 5.7-liter V-8 and a 475-hp, 6.4-liter V-8 that goes in the SRT version. All engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

What’s New on the 2019 Dodge Durango?

The optional Trailer Tow Package now includes an integrated trailer brake. The base SXT trim can have optional leather seats, while the sporty GT trim now shares its front-end design and LED foglamps with the R/T and SRT models. The GT can also have an available performance hood with an air inlet and heat extractors. A Harman Kardon premium audio system is now available for Citadel, R/T and SRT trims.

What Features in the 2019 Dodge Durango Are Most Important?

Seating options are aplenty in the Durango, from a second-row bench seat or captain’s chairs to an available third row. Dodge’s easy-to-use and responsive Uconnect multimedia system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. A 7-inch touchscreen is standard, but a larger 8.4-inch screen is optional. Looking to entertain rear-seat passengers? Opt for the dual-screen entertainment system. The available V-8 engines do offer more towing capability, but you shouldn’t rule out the standard V-6 as it can tow up to 6,200 pounds when properly equipped. Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and lane departure warning cost extra.

Should I Buy the 2019 Dodge Durango?

With its rear-drive platform, bold truck-inspired styling, high-performance V-8 engine offerings and towing capability, the Durango doesn't follow the typical three-row SUV template. If that's what you want, no other mainstream large SUV matches it.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
