2009 Dodge Durango Hybrid Unveiled

The Dodge Durango offers style, comfort, convenience and superior versatility in a real SUV, with three rows of seating and room for eight.


The Dodge Durango’s styling is enhanced with a high beltline emphasizing its bold appearance, while short front and rear overhangs contribute to the vehicle’s expression of concentrated power. Crisp angles and chiseled surfaces highlight a strong and confident front-end design. The Durango’s signature crosshair grille stands out prominently, flanked by rectangular headlamps with dual-halogen bulbs wrapped around the corners of the fenders. The rear design of the Dodge Durango is marked by “afterburner” taillamps, and a chrome appliqué accentuating the rear liftgate.

Standard interior appointments include wood-accented door panels and instrument-panel center stack, air conditioning, overhead console with HomeLink® Universal Transceiver and Electronic Vehicle Information Center, front and rear LED lamps that can be individually aimed, MyGIG Entertainment System with navigation, floor console with rear power accessory outlet, and 60/40 third-row bench seat.

Standard equipment also includes leather-trimmed bucket seats, eight-way power driver’s seat with memory, four-way power passenger seat, heated front-row seats, and a second-row bench seat, providing seating for eight.


Dodge Durango rides on a torsionally stiff, fully hydroformed frame with independent front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering, providing a turning radius of 37.5 ft. — shorter than a Honda Pilot. Suspension and steering are finely tuned to deliver superior ride and precise steering. Dodge Durango’s rear suspension features coil springs and a solid rear axle secured with a Watt’s linkage system, resulting in refined ride and handling characteristics.

Advanced safety and security features include standard Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Stability Program with Electronic Roll Mitigation and Trailer Sway Control, side-curtain air bags for all three rows, ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System, Tire Pressure Monitoring system, Sentry Key® engine immobilizer, and ParkView™ Rear Back-up Camera System.
