Looking for a midsize SUV to tote the kids around town or commute to work in? The 2018 Dodge Durango is everything you could ever want. With seating for five to seven, rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations, and horsepower ranging between 293 to 475, you can customize this vehicle to your liking thanks to all the various trims. Here’s a closer look at the six trim options so you can see which one best matches your requirements.
As the entry-level Durango, the SXT has a number of standard features you’d expect in higher trims. For example, it comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making it easier to integrate your phone during your drive. Enjoy a 3.6-liter V-6 VVT engine that provides 293 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but you can upgrade to all-wheel drive if you’d like. With an MSRP of just $32,595, it’s quite the bargain.
The SXT Plus comes with everything the SXT trim does. Additional features include the ParkSense Rear Park Assist, which is great when you’re trying to back into space, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. It also includes a bonus third row, bumping up the total passenger count to seven. The MSRP of $33,490 means it is still affordable.
Starting at $37,795, the GT comes with rear-wheel drive, but you can upgrade to all-wheel drive for an additional fee. You’ll gain a lot of creature comforts with this trim, including leather-trimmed seats, heated seating in the first and second rows, and a heated steering wheel. The GT is great for hauling around cargo with a power liftgate and universal garage door opener.
The Citadel sees a bit of a price jump with an MSRP of $42,145, and for good reason. This model has many add-ons, including an 8.4-inch touchscreen display, Uconnect 4C NAV, and an Alpine Premium Audio System for powerful sound. Even the exterior is classy with 20-inch polished aluminum wheels and integrated roof rail cross bars.
The R/T trim has you covered if you want a little more power, as it comes with a bigger engine than the other trims. The 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 puts out 360 horsepower for a lot more kick. You can also tow an impressive 7,500 pounds, which is convenient if you want to bring along a boat or trailer. This trim will cost you $43,140 for the standard rear-wheel drive version.
New for 2018, the SRT trim is the top Durango model. With an MSRP of $62,995, it features all-wheel drive and a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine that puts out 475 horsepower. You can zoom from 0 to 60 in a mere 4.4 seconds, a time that beats out much smaller vehicles.
