New 2017 Dodge Durango at Beck Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for Gainesville, FL
The 2017 Dodge Durango is a crossover SUV that is made both for off-road duties and for getting you to the corner store on normal roads. It has several new features for 2017, including the GT trim with a monochromatic exterior. The Citadel trim gains two-tone leather upholstery with silver stitching this year with its available Anodized Platinum package as well. Durango R/T gets roof rails added on for 2017. The base SXT can have two rows of seats if you want more relaxed room for passengers, and are not always full to the brim with people. The Durango models have, as standard, roomy third-row seats, impressive acceleration, excellent towing capacity, and low-range gearing with the four-wheel drive. Starting in 2017, drivers can use the camera to view the trailer while in motion, in models that have the available 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, which is great to check for loose straps or wind-blown items without having to pull over and physically look inconveniently.

Design of Dodge Durango
There are four consolidated and strong trim levels: the SXT, GT, Citadel and the R/T. The 2017 Dodge Durango automatically comes with three rows, but can be had with two rows. Second-row captain's chairs are optional, and rear passengers will have up to 38.6 inches of legroom. To be clear, depending on how you choose to configure the seating in your Durango (there's about 50 possible seating configurations), you will either have room for five or for seven passengers, and 85 cubic feet of cargo capacity. Passengers can watch movies or play their video games on the backs of both front seats with the available Blu-ray video entertainment system with two 9-inch screens that have a high-resolution. The base SXT begins the journey right with eighteen-inch alloy wheels.
