The three-row Durango is into its third generation and for the 2021 model year, Dodge gives it a mild facelift and much-needed interior redo to keep interest alive. This family-friendly SUV offers a V6 under the hood and upgrade option of burly V8, surely moving against the wind as most upcoming midsize SUVs are opting for smaller displacements. With comfortable ride quality, you can enjoy the class-leading infotainment system. Though most rivals offer more safety and driver assistance tech, Durango is the only hot-rod.

Expert Review

7.7

Overall Rating


Dodge says that the Durango is in fact a three-row Charger. In this segment of mid-size three-row crossovers, the Durango is the only muscle car. Dodge Durango is the best in its segment for towing tasks, especially the V8 engine variant. The car might not be as same as the Charger in terms of acceleration but can surely tow your race car and carry one’s pit crew and back. 

The 2021 Durango is part of the third generation which is continuing since 2011. Starting at $31,765, Durango will compete against crossover SUVs like the Hyundai Palisade, Kia Telluride, and the Honda Pilot. Here’s our take on the 2021 Dodge Durango that is soon going to be on sale in the US market.

2021 Dodge Durango Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

Despite being such big, the three-row Durango is still a capable and pleasant vehicle. The Durango is a luxurious, refined, and functional SUV that occupies a spot near the top in its category. Sharing the same platform as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Durango impressively combines workhorse utility with ample creature comforts. For nearly a decade the car has been on the market, to check the reliability and ownership costs let’s have a look at its JD Power report.

The 2021 Dodge Durango has a good predicted reliability rating!

The muscle car still drives like an SUV but its unitized body construction gives it a more solid feel than full-size body-on-frame SUVs. Dodge offers a 4-wheel independent suspension as standard that affords it better ride control than its larger cousins with live rear axles. Having been on the market for over a decade, the Durango doesn’t feel out of touch. 

Reliability and Ownership Cost

JD Power rates cars based on quality, reliability, and ownership. The main aim is to make the ownership experience easier and make it easier for buyers to choose the perfect car for themselves. Notably, the 2020 Dodge Durango scored 79 out of 100 for its overall reliability from JD Power, and in terms of driving experience, the SUV got rated with 88 out of 100. 

Reliability Categories Dodge Durango's JD Power Ratings (out of 100)
Quality and Reliability 76
Driving Experience 87
Resale Value 88
Dealership Experience 68
Overall Reliability 79

Dodge ranks 8th in Consumer Reports' list of 10 most reliable brands for 2020, still, Durango is one of the least reliable vehicles this year. The CR gives the 2020 model year a score of 63 out of 100 overall. The Durango’s score was lower than other SUVs in its class such as the Kia Telluride, and the Hyundai Palisade. Though Chevrolet Traverse scores less than dodge Durango. The Dodge Durango's five-year cost of ownership is average for the class.

  • Cruise control cannot be canceled increasing the risk of a serious high-speed crash.
  • Faulty park rods installed preventing the gearbox to shift into Park mode increasing the possibility of unwanted movement of the vehicle.
  • Faulty voltage regulator chip in the circuit board which might have resulted in engine cut-off increasing the risk of a crash

2021 Dodge Durango Buying Advice

The Dodge Durango has plenty of positives while the 2021 model update has refreshed the styling. More standard features and a slick infotainment system adds to the appeal. It is one of the most practical SUVs in the segment that can be a daily driver. The sales of this car have stayed strong even when it's far from the most athletic SUV in the class. That's because Durango delivers a supple ride.

Is buying a used Dodge Durango a good idea?

If the car is well maintained and the seller is offering the car at a good and decent price then there is no doubt in buying the Durango as it is one of the most practical cars of the segment. 2019, 2018 & 2017 model years offer good values. But one can get the 2019 Durango at 72 percent its original price with 11 years of useful life left. However, it's one’s choice to buy a used car, and also the 2021 model of the Durango is refreshed so rather than buying an old car one should wait for the new model.

2021 Dodge Durango Engine and Performance

8.0/10

The 2021 Durango has a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 producing 293 horsepower via the stock, single exhaust, or 295 horses with an optional dual exhaust free-flow system. Durango's 360 horsepower V8 increases the towing capacity significantly (up to 8700 pounds). You'll find this engine under the hood of every Durango R/T and certain Durango Citadels. Both engine pairs with a slick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission while you can choose between rear-wheel and all-wheel-drive configuration.

Most drivers will probably find the V6 perfectly adequate but the V8 comes with more power and burling exhaust note. Where the V6 feels underpowered, especially during heavy acceleration or on a full load, V8 Durango ends all these concerns with a smile. 

The 2021 Dodge Durango has a 6,200-lbs V6 Towing Capacity

The Durango's towing capacity of 6,200 pounds climbs up to 7,400 pounds when you go with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8, while the maximum tow rating is achieved with SRT models. Next up is a 475 hp 6.4-liter Hemi V8 under the hood of the SRT 392 trim but the absolute king of the Durango lineup is the SRT Hellcat which features a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine good for 710 hp.

When it comes to power the Dodge Durango beats all the SUVs in question whether it’s the Kia Telluride or the Honda Pilot. However, in terms of torque output, the standard V6 is slightly behind the rivals. For those looking for a fuel-efficient Durango, you must stick with the V6 while for better trailering you can opt for the V8 Durango.  

2021 Dodge Durango Acceleration and Braking Performance

With the 3.6-liter V6 engine the Dodge Durango sprint from 0-60 mph in 7.4 seconds while the 5.7-liter V8 did it in 6.2 seconds. The Durango is not overtly sporty, but its rear-wheel-drive platform grants it an athletic feel. The most capable Durango SRT Hellcat does a 3.5-second zero-to-60 sprint and has a top speed of 180 miles per hour.

2021 Dodge Durango Performance is defined by thrilling instincts!

The Durango is a big vehicle, and its braking performance generally reminds of it. The standard brakes on the Durango are not responsive and do not inspire much confidence. In emergency situations, the Durango comes to a complete stop from 60 mph in 134 feet.

Being the heaviest car in the segment could be the reason for poor braking performance for the Dodge Durango. Here the Kia Telluride takes the trophy. The muscle car delivers a comfortable ride, making it a family-friendly SUV but the big SUV lacks a lot of steering response or feedback. The high-power models including R/T and SRT models offer a stiffer ride but improved handling.

2021 Dodge Durango Interior

8.4/10

Dodge has made a sweeping upgrade to the Durango's interior for the 2021 model year. The heavily redesigned cockpit of the SUV features a new instrument panel, roomier center console, and redesigned front door panels. Everything goes driver-centric, including the 10.1-inch touchscreen, which runs Dodge’s latest Uconnect 5 software. However, an 8.4-inch screen is standard on the SXT and GT models. Don't worry, the seven-seater Durango keeps the physical buttons and knobs under the screen, which also has a new wireless charging pad along with roomier center console storage. The new interior design brings a feeling of nostalgia, reminding of the driver-focussed layout of the Challenger and the Charger.

Dodge Durango Citadel Interior in Ebony Red: Redesigned driver-centric Cockpit feels wider and loaded!

Apart from the nice updates to the interior, the 2021 Durango gets a new R/T Tow N Go package. Inside, the luxurious Citadel has room for six people and features heated and ventilated Nappa leather driver and passenger seats with embossed ‘Dodge stripes,’ //, and heated second-row captain’s chairs.

The quality of materials used inside the vehicle is of very high quality with proper fit and finish. The steering wheel of the car is wrapped with leather and smart metal-look trim. The first row seats of the car are heated and ventilated and offer eight-directional power adjustment with added memory functions only for the driver seat. The space that the car offers on the inside is more than enough, whether it’s about the headroom or legroom.

 In terms of cargo space, the 2021 Dodge Durango has an average amount of cargo as compared to most other midsize SUVs. Behind the third-row seats is 17.2 cubic feet of space, which expands to 43.3 cubic feet when you fold down the third row. There’s a maximum of 85.1 cubic feet when you fold down both the second and third rows. 

How’s the 2021 Dodge Durango’s Infotainment System?

The Durango gains loads of tech for 2021, taking a big leap forward. In the 2020 Durango, a 7-inch touch screen was standard and an 8.4-inch touch screen was optional. Now the 8.4-inch version comes standard on the SXT and mid-range GT models while a big 10.1-inch touch screen is optional on GT and standard on the Citadel.

FCA's UConnect 5 Infotainment System: One of the best!

The standard setup runs FCA's Uconnect 4C while the larger setup runs a five times faster Uconnect 5 software. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard with both screens and Amazon Alexa has been introduced for the first time. Both interfaces are simple and straightforward while controls are easy-to-use. The car has got a 9-speaker sound system too; you will also get an option to replace the standard sound system with a Harman Kardon 19-speaker sound system.

2021 Dodge Durango Exterior

8.1/10

The Exterior of the 2021 Dodge Durango gets some fairly mild updates. The most noteworthy exterior changes are made to Durango's front fascia, including a new grille that mimics the Charger widebody sedan. Giving the SUV a modern and aggressive look, thanks to the slim LED headlamps and newly sculpted hood on some models. On the rear, reshaped air channels or we can say inlets are as functional as aesthetically pleasing.

The 2021 Dodge Durango flaunts the looks that thrill

The Citadel exterior features high-end, unique cues and accents, including Platinum chrome accents on door handles and mirror caps, 20-inch-by-8-inch Satin Carbon wheels, and dual rear exhaust with bright chrome tips. SRT models get a new chin spoiler, and all models gain a rear spoiler atop the back hatch. However, the SRT Hellcat Durango is slightly different from other models, it has a unique front-end design, new chin splitter, and also a unique rear spoiler.

2021 Dodge Durango Safety

7.4/10

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration rated the 2021 Dodge Durango with five out of five stars in the side crash test. Rear-wheel-drive models got four out of five stars in the rollover test, and all-wheel-drive models earned three stars. The new Durango did not receive an overall safety rating from the NHTSA.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is yet to release the safety ratings of the 2021 Dodge Durango. However, the similar 2020 model received the highest rating of Good in four categories and the second-lowest rating of Marginal in the driver’s side small overlap front test.

The 2021 Dodge Durango is built to be a guardian!

The Citadel features a full suite of safety features, including Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop, Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Advanced Brake Assist, and LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist as standard.

2021 Dodge Durango vs Honda Pilot

The Honda Pilot has been the SUV of choice for city dwellers and suburban soccer moms for years due to its easy driving dynamics, bulletproof reliability, and great gas mileage. This Honda might not be the best at anything but it most certainly is the jack of all trades and if you aren't on the lookout for a muscle car with 3-rows, then the Pilot makes a lot of sense.

2021 Honda Pilot

2021 Dodge Durango vs Hyundai Palisade

The Palisade is a properly loaded SUV in this segment. It is competitively priced. It offers a lot more than the Durango, also offers above-average practicality and efficiency. Let’s be straight forward, the Hyundai Palisade makes more sense than the Dodge Durango. It has more space to offer, more fuel-efficient, just a little more expensive than the Durango. However, the higher trims of the Durango offer more performance but comes with a high price range. 

2021 Hyundai Palisade

 

2021 Dodge Durango Final Verdict

With the 2021 Durango getting updated a bit from the outside and the inside too, however, this will incorporate only minor tweaks, anything major is not going to be introduced, although the brand has announced to launch the performance variant that is the SRT Hellcat. Dodge Durango lacks some of the most basic safety features and also has the smallest boot in the lineup of the three-row SUVs. However, if you shell out some more money and opt for the higher trim that comes with the best in class features.

The Dodge Durango is a crossover SUV with a unibody sturcture, so it's not built with the body bolted onto the frame like the more rugged truck-based SUVs. Durango is built on the chassis of its corporate sibling, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, stretched with a longer wheelbase to make decent room for seven.

Which Dodge Durango is the Fastest?

The new Durango SRT Hellcat is the fastest in the 2021 lineup while being the most powerful SUV in the world. The Hellcat Durango sprints from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, covers the quarter-mile in 11.5 seconds, and has a top speed of 180 mph.

Not for long trips.

I really like the driving dynamics of my new Durango. It is big, yet effortless to maneuver. Handling is far better than I expected; moves in traffic very smoothly.

The visibility is amazing making it safe and easy to drive. The motor is smooth and has a linear power delivery which in turn makes riding even more joyous.

Durango- the best?!

Durango is the perfect SUV for all. It has everything a big, beefy need to have. Space, power, and good ride quality. Though it rolls a little when going through corners.

Dodge Durango

Wish it was not so noisy then I hit the gas hard and leave that wish behind in smoke. Ride quality is rough which I expected somewhat and was not disappointed or surprised at all.
