Performance

2020 Dodge Durango

It’s a great day when the tough choices are between three potent engines, all paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The standard 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine, with a rear-wheel drivetrain, generates 295-hp and 260 lb-ft of torque and earns an estimated 26 mpg on the Boston highways and 19 mpg driving in the cities of Waltham, Brookline, and Medford. Optional are a 5.7-liter HEMI® for 360-hp and 390 lb-ft of torque and a 6.4-liter HEMI®, which kicks out 475-hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. The Durango has a towing capacity of 6,200, 7,400, and 8,700 pounds, respectively, when properly equipped. All-wheel drive is available with all three powertrains.

The Chevrolet Blazer comes equipped with an EcoTec® 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission to produce 193-hp and 188 lb-ft of torque.
