The 2018 Dodge Durango in Cedar Lake, WI

Much like Dodge's smaller vehicles, the 2018 Dodge Durango has seen numerous updates and upgrades for the year. This year's model has taken a sportier approach to the full-size SUV, adding numerous infotainment features and more performance under the hood. Of course, it hangs on to all of the functionality of a third-row SUV at the same time. 


About the 2018 Dodge Durango in Cedar Lake

The 2018 Dodge Durango is a powerhouse in its class. A new performance trim option, the SRT, adds to the hubbub about this SUV. However, it truly calls out to large families and big-time travelers who need the extra seats and cargo space. This vehicle excels when it's on the open road. While the fuel efficiency suffers some with the new V8 option, the V6 is still available and makes for a family and wallet-friendly option. For families who have struggled to find comfort and convenience in a vehicle of this size, the 2018 Dodge Durango has it all. 

Aside from the more powerful V8 option, this year's model also features some updates to the interior, including a larger touchscreen, integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the requisite paddle shifters on the steering wheel. However, this SUV really shines when you fold the seats down and find more than 84 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front two seats. This is further augmented by a towing capacity of up to 8400 pounds. 


Performance on the Road

Ultimately, it all comes down to how this thing handles on the road. As with most SUVs of this class, the center of gravity is a little high, so you won't be whipping it around very many tight curves. Nevertheless, it does sit lower than SUVs of the past, taking a more aggressive stance and giving you plenty of security as you rev that engine up. Under the best circumstances, you're looking at about 19/26 mpg but if you opt for the extra power you will lose some of that fuel economy and can expect something closer to 14/22 mpg. 

The 2018 Dodge Durango in Cedar Lake is a welcome sight for anyone who needs more space and more flexibility.
