2022 Dodge Durango

Pros: Overall road manners and maneuverability are superior to most large SUVs; V6 engine delivers good highway fuel economy for a vehicle of this size and heft; comfortable, nicely finished cabin

Cons: Not quite as spacious as other large SUVs; thirsty in city driving, especially with available V8s

CG Says: Dodge’s large crossover SUV gains newly-standard features for 2022, with third-row seating now included on all trim levels. The Durango is powered by a 293-hp 3.6-liter V6 or a 360-hp 5.7-liter V8. The sporty SRT 392 is powered by a 475-hp 6.4-liter V-8. All engines, including the SRT models, are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available on models, except SRT where all-wheel drive is standard.

Available features include autonomous emergency braking, lane-departure warning, blind-spot alert, adaptive cruise control, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, Wi-Fi hotspot, heated/ventilated front seats, and tri-zone automatic climate controls. For 2022, the base Durango SXT gets newly-standard third-row seating and a power-adjustable driver’s seat, while the GT gets newly-standard remote start, heated front seats, and power-operated liftgate. Also, GT and R/T Durango buyers can now get the SRT 392’s vented hood, as part of the optional Blacktop package.

The Dodge Durango has something for just about every type of large-SUV shopper. The base SXT has a lot of features for the money, while the GT and Citadel add worthwhile luxury and convenience items. The sporty R/T probably isn’t the best value for most buyers, but we can see its appeal for those who crave brawny style and high performance. The SRT 392 adds even more performance with useful suspension upgrades, and the SRT Hellcat has outrageous capabilities.
