TOPEKA, Kan., Aug. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Every vehicle reaches for the stars, but only a select few have the ability to actually grab one. The Dodge Durango is one of them. The 2013 model received best-in-class V-8 power, towing and highway driving range and the 2014 Durango is likely to win the same, if not more categories this year. The official release date has not been revealed yet, but it is expected to reach Briggs Dodge and other dealerships soon.
The best-in-class towing is also becoming the safest. Standard on the 2014 Durango is trailer-sway control to help stabilize up to the 7,400 pounds that the Durango is capable of hauling. If the trailer begins to waver, the Durango automatically reduces engine power and speed to get it under control again. On top of that, the Durango includes safety features such as anti-lock brakes, multiple airbags, and traction and stability control.
It doesn't require a manual transmission to get immersed in the driving experience. Consumers are likely to enjoy the addition of an eight-speed automatic transmission complete with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. It's quite the increase from last year's basic five-speed automatic.
On top of enhanced performance, the shifters account for a nine percent increase in fuel economy. They also increase the involvement and enhance the enjoyment that comes with driving a Durango. The eight-speed transmission is paired with a standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine capable of 290 horse and 6,200 pounds of towing capacity. The 5.7-liter V-8 adds another 70 to the horsepower and has the power to tow every single one of those best-in-class 7,400 pounds. To save gas, the V-8 automatically drops down to a 4-cylinder mode when large amounts of power aren't needed.
