It might not be the ultimate 7-seater SUV but with its ability to be fun, macho and useful simultaneously, it is surely admirable.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

For the year 2019, it is available in 6 different trims and that is excluding the performance-oriented R/T and SRT variants. The remaining trims are; SXT, SXT Plus, GT, GT Plus, Citadel and Citadel Anodized Platinum. With a base price of $31,940 which can go all the way up to $45,750, it targets all kinds of audiences with its versatility.


The base trim SXT is equipped with enough features to make it a car worth buying. The price tag for this trim is $30,445. Some of those features are 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, fog lights, a rearview camera, cloth upholstered seats, 7.0-inch touchscreen display which has multiple features on it including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, 2 USB ports, Bluetooth and a 6-speaker audio system. In 2019, you now have the option to go for leather upholstery and also a 5-seater option. The Plus package adds a bit more to this list. It adds 12-way power-adjustable front seats, bright roof rails and ParkSense park-assist.

Moving on to the GT trim which hits the sweet spot with its pricing and list of features. It adds a few more features to the SXT trim and will cost you $34,895. The features are; 20-inch wheels, a power liftgate, rear parking sensors, auto-dimming rearview camera, LED fog lights, 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seats and a few exterior changes giving it a more aggressive look. The GT is also available in the Plus package.

The Citadel is the next trim in line. It boasts a slightly hefty price tag of $43,245 but it adds some major upgrades to the existing features. It has a bigger 8.4-inch touchscreen display, an upgraded 9-speaker Alpine audio system, memory setting for driver and passenger seats, heated front and second-row seats, leather and vinyl upholstery, front parking sensors, 6-way power-adjustable passenger seat, heated steering wheel, etc. it definitely adds value to the GT trim.

The R/T is the top-tier trim excluding the mad SRT trim. Just like the SRT, the R/T is a performance-focused trim. It is equipped with all the features mentioned above but more importantly, it has a more powerful engine, a lowered ride height, simulated-suede upholstery, ventilated seats and a few driver-assist features which come standard.

Which Trim should you buy?

The Citadel has a plethora of features but it might be too pricey for some, hence we recommend the GT trim which is a trim lower to the Citadel. The GT can also be equipped with the Plus package which adds some fancy features at a marginal price difference.

Engine and Performance

Although the R/T and SRT variants of Dodge Durango have a monstrous 5.7L V8 engine which is surely mouth-watering from an enthusiast’s point of view, the standard 3.6L V6 also packs a punch. The base V6 produces 293 hp at 6,400 RPM with a max torque of 260 lb-ft at 4,000 RPM. The R/T’s V8 has a muscular performance of 360 hp at 5150 RPM and a peak torque of 390 lb-ft @ 4250 RPM. The SRT is on a whole new planet with a 6.4L V8 producing 475 horses.

All of these engines are paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission. It is highly reliable and is always wide awake to change gears at the right time. All Durangos have an option of an all-wheel-drive drivetrain with a rear-wheel-drive being the standard one. The 3.6L V6 engine with the RWD option sounds less exciting than other combinations but it is the most economical. You’ll not yawn behind the wheel of the 2019 Dodge Durango regardless of the engine choice, that’s for sure. The SRT’s V8 can tow up to 8700 lbs which is also an impressive number for this segment.

The 3.6L with the RWD is slower off the line than the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse and the 2019 Honda Pilot. The most powerful standard engine offered on a car in this segment is the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse’s 3.6L V6 producing 310 hp at 6,800 RPM. But Pilot is the fastest of the lot covering the 0-60mph in 6.2 seconds.

How well does the 2019 Dodge Durango handle?

The 2019 Dodge Durango is a massive, bulky SUV and you’ll be constantly reminded about it by the way the vehicle handles. The steering response is a tad slower for our liking because it’s not child’s play to maneuver this big car. However, the driving experience is not bad at all. 

The transmission is smart to understand when you need power, the suspension which is short and long arm type front and multi-link type rear, handles the bumps and corners well. The highway ride quality feels secure and comfortable as well. If you’re looking for some adrenaline, then the R/T or SRT won’t disappoint you but the fuel economy will take a mighty blow.

Braking Performance

The 2019 Dodge Durango is basically a loose, wild animal on wheels. It needs some serious braking power to tame this animal. Dodge has made sure that the brakes are reliable enough to make this bulky, powerful car stop. Both the front and rear brake rotors are 13.0 inches which are the biggest in class. The brake pedal has a firm feel to it and the brakes respond immediately to the action.

Curb Weight (lbs)





60-0MPH (feet)





The 2019 Dodge Durango has a slight disadvantage over the other cars mentioned in the table due to its heavyweight but that does not affect its braking performance. Instead, it produces the best numbers in class for 60-0mph braking distance of a mere 110 feet which is better than most sport sedans.

Fuel Economy

There’s no beating around the bush with this. The fuel economy of the 2019 Dodge Durango is one of the worst in the segment. The numbers mentioned in the table below are for the standard 3.6L V6 engine. The 5.7L V8 is a one-thirsty engine that offers a fuel economy of just 14/22/17 (city/highway/combined). These numbers are definitely not good enough to compete with the likes of the 2019 Honda Pilot which is the most economical car among the 4 mentioned below.

Fuel Capacity (Gallons)





Range (City/Highway/Combined, in Miles)





With a thirsty engine under the hood, the 2019 Durango ought to have a gigantic fuel tank. With a total capacity of 24.6 gallons, no car is even in the ballpark of the Durango, hence giving it a phenomenal range. The car with the smallest fuel tank is the 2019 Ford Explorer and with a combined fuel economy of just 20 mpg, its range is not impressive.


The 2019 Dodge Durango is one of the most spacious 3-row SUVs on the market. Its bulky exterior and interior space are in harmony. The SXT and the SRT have an option of removing the third-row seats, adding more cargo space and reducing weight. The SXT is equipped with cloth upholstered seats with an option for leather upholstery and vice versa for the GT trim. The front seats are from 8-way power-adjustable to 12-way power-adjustable depending on the trim.

The quality of materials used in the interior could have been better. its average soft-touch surfaces just don’t look high-end. The dashboard is fitted with a 7.0-inch touchscreen display in the SXT trim while a bigger 8.4-inch display is seen in GT trim and above. Its user-friendly tech gives it a much better appeal.

Seating Capacity

Second Row (Head/Shoulder/Leg, in inches)





Third Row (Head/Shoulder/Leg, in inches)





Cargo Capacity (cubic feet)





There’s plenty of headroom and legroom in the first two rows of seats in the 2019 Dodge Durango, but that doesn’t translate to the third row. It is best suited for short people to sit back as it feels a bit cramped. The cargo space in Durango is also a letdown. The car with the most cargo space behind the 3rd row of seats is the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse.

Standout interior features:

  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Cloth/ leather/ simulated-suede upholstery depending on the trim
  • 60/40 split-folding second-row seats and 50/50 split-folding third-row seats
  • 8-way power-adjustable driver seat and 6-way power-adjustable passenger seat (GT and above)
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel with heated functionality

What’s there to keep you entertained?

The base trim SXT of the 2019 Dodge Durango is equipped with a Uconnect 7.0-inch touchscreen display with plenty of features to offer. Those include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, 6-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, voice activation and 3 12V DC Power Outlets

The GT and higher trims get an upgraded Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen display as their infotainment system. The GT trim also unlocks features like satellite radio and an additional 115-volt power outlet. The Citadel improves it further by adding navigation, a 9-speaker Alpine audio system and 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot compatibility. Overall both these systems are intuitive and have a user-friendly interface. The 8.4-inch display has crisp clarity and its functions are also simple to understand.

Standout infotainment features:

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Navigation (Citadel trim and above)
  • AM/FM/HD Radio
  • 6-speaker audio system
  • Bluetooth with voice activation
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot compatibility (Citadel and above)

We’ve already established the fact that the 2019 Dodge Durango is a bulky SUV. However, its exterior styling is aggressive and has a muscle car vibe to it. The front fascia is emphasized by the huge grille with the chrome styling in the shape of the Dodge logo, LED DRLs fog lights and a massive hood that has a rumbling V6 or a V8 underneath.

The side profile of the car appears tall and handsome thanks to the 8.1-inch ground clearance which is the best in class. Roof rails are standard on all trims. According to the trim, you’ll get either 18-inch alloys or 20-inch alloys with the latter being more attractive and readily camouflages into the muscular personality. The rear end continues the aggressive character with its large rear bumper, LED brake lights which join with a Dodge lettering in the middle, a power liftgate, rear lip spoiler and single exhaust outlet.

Length (inches)

Height (inches)





Ground Clearance (inches)





Wheelbase (inches)





The 2019 Dodge Durango is the tallest and heaviest vehicle in the lot. The car with the largest wheelbase and the highest overall length is the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse which translates to much better interior space.

Standout exterior features:

  • Auto On/Off Projector-beam daytime running LED headlights
  • 18-inch or 20-inch alloys
  • Roof rails
  • Power liftgate
  • Sunroof (Citadel and above)
  • Rear lip spoiler
  • LED Fog lights

Hold on to your horses because a huge list of safety and driver-assist features is going to follow. But before that, let's see what the federal authorities have to say. The NHTSA has given the 2019 Dodge Durango a 4-star rating in their crash test analysis and the IIHS has given it an overall score of “Good”. The 2019 Durango offers a lot of safety features but either they’re only available on higher, more expensive trims or are optional. Having said that, we think that the Durango is a safe car!

Standout safety features:

  • Electronic stability control
  • Hill-start assist
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Lane departure warning
  • Automatic high-beam headlights
  • Adaptive headlights
  • Forward collision warning
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Adaptive cruise control

2019 Dodge Durango vs 2019 Chevrolet Traverse

The 2019 Chevy Traverse is probably the 2019 Durango’s closest rival. The Chevy also boasts a humongous exterior but it has a better performing standard engine and also has a slightly better fuel economy. The Durango offers a lot of options in terms of powertrain, additional safety features and it also has better off-road capabilities and towing capacity than the Chevy. Buyers who look for a calm and composed 7-seater should definitely go for the Traverse as it is one of the best cars in the segment.

2019 Dodge Durango vs 2019 Honda Pilot

The 2019 Dodge Durango and the 2019 Honda Pilot have two completely different motives. The Durango leans more towards performance while the Pilot leans more towards utility and comfort. It is a clear choice for you depending upon your requirement. The Durango’s performance is unmatched while the Pilot has exceptional cargo space, fuel economy and good interior looks. If you wish to go for practicality over brutal performance, then the Pilot is the right choice for you.

2019 Dodge Durango vs 2019 Ford Explorer

The 2019 Ford Explorer sees a practical approach towards the American crowd rather than flaunting best-in-class numbers in every category. It is without a doubt that the Ford cannot match the sheer muscular performance of the Dodge but it also falls short in sections like braking performance, handling and fuel economy. the 2019 Dodge Durango is a clear winner in this comparison.

Final Verdict

The 2019 Dodge Durango is a bulky, aggressive-looking 7-seater with maddening performance. It excels in performance, towing capacity and offers an exciting driving experience regardless of the trim. However, the quality of interior and fuel economy are not its strong points. Buyers who look for such performance-driven vehicles are often ready to overlook such negatives. In such cases, the 2019 Durango is the perfect buy.
