2014 Dodge Durango Coming In The 3rd Quarter

The new 2014 Dodge Durango, available in five trim levels: SXT, Rallye, the new for 2014 Limited, R/T and Citadel, has a standard 290 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine paired with the new standard eight-speed transmission and an available 360 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with cylinder-deactivation that seamlessly alternates between four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and V-8 mode when more power is in demand to optimize fuel consumption.

The new eight-speed automatic transmission with rotary shifter and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters improves fuel economy up to 9 percent while enhancing performance and smoother shifts. The V-6 engine Durango can tow up to 6,200 pounds and with the V-8 engine up to 7,400 pounds. Production is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2013.
