These days, some people think that family vehicles are limited to minivans and bland, personality-free crossover SUVs. While we would beg to differ — the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and 2016 Jeep Cherokee certainly disprove this theory — some families want a vehicle that is not a minivan or crossover. For these drivers, we’d recommend the 2016 Dodge Durango. The new Dodge Durango is a large seven-passenger SUV with aggressive styling and a tough V8, a family vehicle for those looking for something tough. 

Here at our Dodge dealership near Walnut Creek, OH, we are pleased to carry the 2016 Dodge Durango. The large SUV differentiates itself from the typical crossover SUV with its aggressive styling, which features a bold shape, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a load-leveling rear suspension. The vehicle comes in four trim levels: SXT, Limited, Citadel, and R/T. There are also a number of option packages available, with a customer favorite being the Customer Preferred Order Package, which adds roof rails and crossbars, an eight-way power driver seat with four-way lumbar adjustment, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and satellite radio.

Moving on to under the hood, the 2016 Dodge Durango sports a 3.6-liter V6 engine good for 290 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel-drive come standard, while an all-wheel-drive system is optional. To save fuel, the Dodge brand installed an automatic start-stop system that shuts down the engine while the car is stopped. If the V6 engine isn’t powerful enough for you, you can opt for the 5.7-liter V8 engine that cranks out 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque.
