Overview

What's New in the 2019 Dodge Durango?

Most of the changes involve new options for specific grades. Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is now a free-standing option on all grades. Citadel, R/T and SRT models now offer an optional 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. Available on all trim levels, an integrated trailer brake is included in the trailer-tow package. See the 2019 Dodge Durango models for sale near you

Which Durango is the Best?

It's hard for us to recommend a vehicle that returns 17 mpg. So, as much as we love the 5.7-liter V8, we'd have to go with the far more efficient V6. Its 8-speed automatic transmission and start/stop technology further increase efficiency, and it still can tow more than any of its crossover competitors. Beyond that, make our Durango a GT -- we think it's worth the price premium over the rather basic SXT model. It even looks better. Find a Dodge Durango for sale

How Much Does a 2019 Dodge Durango Cost?

The 2019 Dodge Durango comes in five trim levels: SXT, GT, Citadel, R/T and SRT. It's easy to be confused by the available trims because the marketing folks have thrown together an SXT Plus and GT Plus with a couple of extra features, as well as a Citadel Anodized Platinum version, but these aren't really separate trims. AWD is standard on the SRT and a $2,600 upgrade on all other trims. All prices reflect the $1,495 factory destination charge.

The SXT ($31,690) gets things rolling with 18-in alloy wheels, automatic headlights, a backup camera, tri-zone automatic climate control, a height-adjustable driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 7-in touchscreen, a USB port, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a 6-speaker audio system. Three rows of seats are standard, but two can be specified as an option on the SXT only.

The GT ($37,135) adds special exterior styling elements, 20-in wheels, LED running lights, rear parking sensors, an auto-dimming driver mirror, power-adjustable front seats, driver memory settings, heated front and second-row seats, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, two USB ports and an 8.4-in touchscreen.

The Citadel ($44,490) has a power lift gate, a sunroof, xenon headlights, automatic wipers, upgraded brakes, chrome-clad exterior trim, upgraded leather seating and extended interior leather trim, a power-adjustable steering wheel, ventilated front seats, an integrated navigation system and a 9-speaker sound system. A version that's absurdly known as the Citadel Anodized adds a couple of appearance upgrades.

Platinum ($47,765) essentially features different exterior and interior trim. This is also the first trim where you can add the V8 engine.

The R/T ($45,490) comes standard with the V8, plus a sport-tuned suspension and steering, special styling elements and a Beats audio system.

The new SRT ($64,490) adds further upgraded brakes and steering, a sport-tuned adaptive suspension, special styling, Nappa leather and simulated suede upholstery and second-row captain's chairs. Full leather seats and a second-row bench are optional. You can also delete the third row.

Note that many of the upper trims' extra features are available on lower ones without option packages. Other options include blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, second-row captain's chairs, a towing package and a rear entertainment system that features two screens, a Blu-ray player and an HDMI port. Available only on the upper three trims is the Technology Group, which adds a variety of accident-avoidance tech detailed in the Safety section below.

Is the 2019 Dodge Durango a Safe Car?

The 2019 Dodge Durango comes with a backup camera, front-side airbags, full-length side-curtain airbags and a driver-knee airbag. The Technology Group adds forward-collision warning and automatic braking, lane-departure warning and keeping, adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems. The latter two items are available separately on all grades.

In government crash testing, the Durango earned 4-star overall and frontal ratings and a 5-star side rating. The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Durango the highest-possible rating of Good in every category except the firm's challenging small-overlap front crash test, where it earned a second-worst Marginal rating. Its crash-prevention tech was rated Superior.

Competition

2019 Dodge Durango vs the competition

2019 Ford Explorer -- Recently updated with a new look and new technology, the Explorer is a formidable rival to the more truck like Durango. It's not as utilitarian as the Durango, but it's certainly more fuel efficient and maneuverable.

2019 Chevrolet Traverse -- The redesigned Traverse offers a truly enormous interior, and its V6 drivetrain is perhaps a smidge better than the Durango's. Forget about off-roading or serious towing, though.

2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee -- If you don't need the Durango's third-row seat, we strongly recommend checking out the Grand Cherokee, which is basically a smaller, nimbler version of the Durango with a nicer interior.

Used Ford Expedition -- If you need more capability and space than the Durango provides, you'll probably need a full-size truck-based SUV. In that case, try a used Ford Expedition at this price point. Its cabin isn't as nice as the Chevrolet Tahoe's, but it has a smoother ride and a far more usable third row seat and cargo area.
