What Are the Engine and Drivetrain Options for the 2021 Durango?
Dodge is America’s muscle car brand and has been for years. So it’s only right that they spread that impressive power across the entire lineup. The 2021 Dodge Durango will come with four available engines, starting with a 3.6L V6. This base engine is more powerful than most other SUVs, with 295 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque! Next up is the 5.7L V8 under the hood of the R/T and Citadel trims; this kicks out a whopping 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. Exclusively under the hood of the SRT trim is a powerful 6.4L V8 that cranks out 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Most carmakers would call it quits after that much power, but not Dodge! Under the hood of the all-new Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat is a supercharged 6.2L V8 that outruns the mighty Lamborghini Urus with an exhilarating 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque! Rear-wheel drive is standard across the Durango lineup, while all-wheel drive is also available. Both the SRT and Hellcat trims come standard with all-wheel drive. All four Durango engines pair perfectly with a robust 8-speed automatic transmission.

What About Some Durango Safety Features?
The body of the 2021 Dodge Durango sits on a high-strength steel frame specially designed to keep impact energy away from the cabin as the first line of defense from an accident. Drivers and front passengers are kept safe by front and side airbags, while the second and third-row occupants are protected by side curtain airbags. For driver assists, available on all trims besides the SXT is the Technology Group. This keeps occupants safe with lane departure warning with lane keep assist, full-speed forward collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control, blindspot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, rain-sensing wipers, and more. The Citadel trim got its name from being a fortress on wheels, so it’s only right that all the safety and security measures come standard.
