2015 Dodge Durango Review, Price and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Dodge Durango Concept. 2015 Dodge Durango changes is one brand new car from Dodge that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Dodge Durango Release Date.
The 2015 Dodge Durango is an affordable midsize SUV that gets a new optional audio system this year. The 2015 Dodge Durango is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 290 horsepower. The R/T model has a 360-horsepower 5.7-liter V8 engine. All trims come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional. The V6-equipped 2015 Dodge Durango earns an EPA-estimated 18/25 mpg city/highway with rear-wheel drive.
The 2015 Dodge Durango isn’t quite a crossover, nor is it strictly an off-road-ready SUV. It’s built from the architecture that brought us the Mercedes GL-Class and M-Class, as well as Jeep’s Grand Cherokee, so it’s a utility vehicle with considerable rugged capabilities and exceptionally nice road manners. Top it off with grabby front-end styling, and it’s neither fish nor fowl it’s more like SUV red meat done nouvelle Americain.

2015 Dodge Durango Interior
The 2015 Dodge Durango can seat seven, while optional second-row bucket seats reduce seating capacity to six. A tilt and telescopic steering wheel, tri-zone automatic climate control, a six-speaker audio system and the Uconnect infotainment system with satellite radio, Bluetooth, a USB port and a 5-inch touch-screen display are standard. Options include leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a sunroof, a power liftgate, an 8.4-inch touch-screen display, voice-controlled navigation, a rear-seat entertainment system and a new 10-speaker Beats by Dre audio system. A rearview camera, forward collision warning with crash mitigation, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert are also available.
The base Dodge Durango SXT includes standard power windows, locks and mirrors; remote start; air conditioning; an AM/FM/CD player; 18-inch wheels; a tilt/telescope steering wheel; and three-row seating. Bluetooth is standard, and the audio system display is a 5.0-inch touchscreen. Options include a larger touchscreen with smartphone-app connectivity; second-row captain’s chairs; heated seats; and a heated steering wheel.
On the outside, the Durango gets projector-beam headlamps plus hockey-stick-shaped LED running lamps on all but the base SXT. Top R/T and Citadel models get HID headlamps, while projector foglamps and the slimmer new textured crosshair grille, in combination with a resculpted hood and lower front fascia, makes the Durango look brawnier. Attractive wheel designs, including a Hyper Black finish, help punctuate the look, and in back the Durango features LED racetrack lighting, which forms a ribbon of light across the tail with 192 individual lamps.
2015 Dodge Durango Exterior
The 2015 Dodge Durango is offered in four trim levels SXT, Limited, R/T, and Citadel with numerous options and appearance packages to aid further customization. The upper trim levels are especially well equipped, rivaling the content in some luxury sedans.
The Durango Limited gets the upgraded Uconnect audio system; leather seating; a heated steering wheel; heated first- and second-row seats; power front seats; a rearview camera and rear parking sensors; and a 115-volt outlet in the cabin. The HEMI is an option here, as are second-row captain’s chairs; a navigation system; a power sunroof; a power tailgate; and Alpine audio. A Blu-Ray DVD system is an option on Limited models and above.
The big crosshair grille up front sets up the classic SUV stance. It makes all the difference in carving out a sport-ute silhouette for the Durango, distinct from the more carlike creatures in its class. Where it doesn’t look quite as rugged is from the rear quarters: From some angles, the look is heavy, although the monochrome treatments and dual exhaust help to but a little sport back into the design.
There are hockey-stick-shaped LED running lamps on all but the base SXT, and HID headlamps on top R/T and Citadel models. The textured crosshair grille was made slimmer last year, while the hood and lower front fascia were resculpted slightly. LED racetrack lighting, one of the latest Dodge family traits, forms a ribbon of light across the tail, with 192 individual lamps in all. That’s the detail we’d question–the racetrack shape might be more than enough.
2015 Dodge Durango Engine
The 2015 Dodge Durango offers a choice between a more efficient V-6 engine and a powerful HEMI V-8. Both are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, new to the lineup last year.
The Durango was updated with the same, excellent new eight-speed automatic transmission that’s used in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and other Chrysler products. The Durango gets a stylish rotary shifter like the one used in the Ram 1500 and Chrysler 200, as well as paddle-shifters for all models. A pair of strong engines is available: the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 making 290 horsepower and 260 pound-feet, and a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 making 360 hp and 390 lb-ft. Both are helped by the eight-speed auto to achieve acceptable fuel-economy numbers. HEMI feature so-called Fuel Saver Technology (cylinder deactivation), and all models have a selectable Eco Mode that changes throttle sensitivity and transmission shift points to maximize fuel savings.
Drivers who tow or regularly carry a full load of cargo and people should opt for the strong, snarly 5.7-liter HEMI V-8. It’s terrific for stoplight launches and interstate cruising. But despite the presence of the same automatic, it’s still pretty thirsty; if you’re not in love with the sound of the engine or don’t really need it for towing (rated at up to 7,400 pounds), you’re going to feel the sting of fuel bills more often, since gas mileage can be as low as 14 mpg city.
The eight-speed automatic even comes with shift paddles in some versions, but the programming could use some work. Instead of the 30-second cycle back into automatic mode that’s common on many paddle-shifted non-sports cars, the Durango persists in manual mode until you hold the upshift paddle for three seconds–this is likely a concession to those who want to choose their own gear while towing.
The Durango also offers a choice between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, depending on the model. Two different AWD systems are used; V-8 models get a low-range transfer case, while V-6 models use a simpler a single-speed unit. Towing capability tops out at 7,400 pounds with the V-8.
