The Dodge Durango: Best Towing SUV

The Dodge Durango has long been hailed as one of the highest performing SUVs on the market for its muscular styling and performance, comfortable interior, and spacious seating for up to seven. At Melloy Dodge we not only value these qualities in the unique Durango, but also its impressive towing capabilities that have made it an in-class leader for several years running. This all-around star of a vehicle is built for everyday toughness, without compromising on maneuverability and fuel economy. This versatile SUV is an ideal candidate for all sorts of drivers, but for those looking to get exceptional towing capability, the Dodge Durango stands head and shoulders above the rest.

While many of our RAM trucks offer excellent towing capability as well, for the drivers with families, or those who need more space and versatility from their vehicle, the Durango is a great choice. The 2015 Dodge Durango comes standard with a 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 engine that has the ability to tow up to 6,200 pounds in a single go with 290 horsepower and more than 250 pounds-ft of torque. What that translates to on the road is a lot of power, and the ability to move objects on an impressive scale. Just remember, as you take your Durango to work, never tow more than recommended, no matter how confident you are in your Dodge's ability.

Not only does the Durango offer a great deal of power in a functional package, but it features a standard trailer sway control system that works hard so that you don’t have to, applying brake pressure on alternating wheels and adjusting engine throttle when necessary. This features eliminates sway and maintains balance when you’re moving a lot of weight on a long haul.

The Dodge Durango stands at the top of its class for towing ability, and comes with the added bonus of an estimated 25 mpg on the highway. If you’re a driver seeking balance between daily commutes and hard work, look no further than this impressive SUV, designed to meet all of modern life’s demands.
