Despite the age, the current-generation Durango stands out for many good reasons. It comes with powerful engines, class-leading towing capacity and many good qualities that aren’t so typical for the segment. Still, it also lags behind the competition in many ways, so the 2020 Dodge Durango will probably be the last year model of the current generation.
The new generation is expected to come sometime in the next year and it looks like it will bring plenty of interesting changes, especially in terms of base design characteristics. On the other side, the 2020 Dodge Durango will continue in a familiar way, with well-known features.
- Powerful engines
- Spacious cabin
- Class-leading towing capacity
- Outdated cabin design
- Short list of standard features
- Rivals handle better
The 2020 Dodge Durango will be the last year model of the current generation. So, don’t count on any important change. It will continue with familiar design characteristics. Despite the rugged look, it is practically a crossover, as it shares most of the parts with the legendary Jeep Grand Cherokee.
However, things are going to change with the upcoming redesign, as the new Durango is about to ride on a more traditional body-on-frame platform. Allegedly, the new model will share many parts with the new-generation Wrangler, which promises prominent off-road and utility performances. Of course, count on a completely new styling as well.
The interior of the 2020 Dodge Durango will remain pretty much untouched, we presume. In practice, this means a spacious cabin, which offers three roomy rows of seats, as well as plenty of cargo volume.
On the other side, the interior design definitely shows its age. The dashboard looks a little bit outdated, while most rivals like Honda Pilot or Mazda CX-9 look far more opulent and feature much finer materials. Another complaint goes to a pretty short list of standard equipment. Of course, things will be much better after the upcoming redesign.
Count on three familiar engines in the offer for the 2020 Dodge Durango. Base models will continue with a familiar 3.6-liter V6, which delivers around 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. A mid-range R/T model will feature a familiar 5.7-liter V8, which features a max output around 360 horsepower.
Finally, there is a top-range SRT version, which comes with a large 6.4-liter V8, which delivers around 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. All models feature an 8-speed automatic transmission.
2020 Dodge Durango Release Date and Price
Given the lack of changes, the 2020 Dodge Durango should arrive sometime late in the year. Same goes for the price, which should keep the same range, between $30,000 and $63,000 dollars, roughly.
