2023 Dodge Durango – Engine, Transmission and Performance in Cranbrook

January 10,2023

The Durango’s optional 360-horsepower V-8 engine delivers a significant improvement in towing capability (a maximum of 8700 pounds), while the 295-horsepower V-6 engine paired with the eight-speed automatic transmission is the more fuel-efficient combination.
The fuel economy of the Durango does not beat that of its four-cylinder competitors, of course. However, the trade-off for the more fun V-8 and its beefy towing capacity may well be worth it for some consumers.
We put both the V-8 and V-6 engines through their paces, along with the eight-speed automatic transmission that is standard and the all-wheel available drive. A run from 0 to 60 miles per hour in the V-6 took 7.4 seconds, while the V-8 engine did it in 6.2 seconds.
The Dodge’s suspension strikes a balance between being sporty and comfortable, but the braking and steering wheel performance make it clear that you’re behind the wheel of an SUV.
While it is not overly sporty, the rear-wheel-drive architecture of the Durango gives the vehicle an athletic feel, and its muscle-car mentality shines through when it is used in day-to-day situations. It is, nevertheless, able to provide a comfortable journey, making it an SUV that is family-friendly and is both enjoyable to drive and convenient to own and maintain.
