Winter weather is here, and whether you plan to drive in the lower 48 or the Great White North, you’re going to need the right vehicle. That vehicle is the Dodge Durango. With good tires, the Durango can take you anywhere you need to go, regardless of the weather. The Dodge Durango is the perfect vehicle for traveling through snow and any other type of inclement weather. It’s effective, full-on AWD, enables you to safely make your way over wet, icy or snowy terrain with ease. Plus being armed with either a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 or 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 engine makes blowing through snow banks a breeze.

No matter how bad the weather is, the Dodge Durango is the ideal SUV when it comes to safety and handling. Fitted with a limited slip differential, low range transfer case, traction control and two-wheel or full-time AWD, the Durango can safely stop and turn on snow, ice or anything else the weather throws at it. The Durango also has excellent ground clearance, independent suspension and large wheelbase length which provide excellent ride qualities even on winter-ravaged roads and even rougher winter weather. Plus the Dodge Durango is solid and sturdy enough to shake off whatever Mother Nature brings and tall and roomy enough to make getting in and other in full winter regalia easy. But, it’s one thing to read about a Durango and another to see for yourself. For this reason, you should head on down to Chapman Dodge Las Vegas and see for yourself.

The Durango’s power rear liftgate provides convenient access, while its wiper provides increased winter visibility. The interior is comfortable, nicely appointed and quiet at all speeds. It has room for four adults with adequate headroom and legroom in the back seat. The Durango has optional heated leather upholstery, dual-screen DVD rear seat entertainment and rear climate controls. The second row seats flip forward easily to provide third row access and loads of convenient cargo room.

Add a heated steering wheel with power tilt and telescoping memory settings, remote starting, keyless access, push-button ignition, an 8.4 inch touch-screen display, rear view camera, GPS navigation, satellite radio featuring Sirius XM Travel Link and multiple power ports as well as USB outlets in the front and rear.

The Durango’s steering wheel has a paddle shifter to increase gear ratios, and there’s an integrated rotary shift control in the center console. The new eight-speed automatic transmission combined with either the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 or the optional 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, cylinder deactivation technology as well as Eco-mode programming all enhance overall fuel economy. EPA estimated fuel economy for the 360-horsepower AWD Hemi-engined Durango is 14 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway for a combined average of 16 mpg.

With its LED daytime running headlamps, full-length rear LED taillights, adaptive cruise control, advanced brake assist and forward collision warning system, the Dodge Durango makes driving in winter safer than ever.
