The new exterior of the Dodge Durango SUV is quite attractive, with an imposing front end that stretches wide and stares straight ahead with twin-element headlamps. The profile is that of a traditional SUV, and the rear has horizontal tail lamps on either end highlighted with chrome trimmings. Some suggest that the back end more closely resembles a mini-van than an SUV, but all in all reviewers agree that the overall look is appealing.
The trims available include Express at the most basic, with Heat, Crew, R/T, and CrewLux in between. The pinnacle of the Dodge Durango SUV trims is the Citadel, which includes all of the options you can imagine - as well as many you haven't even thought of. The basic interior is quiet, and comes standard with comfortable seats, soft-touch materials, and cloth upholstery. Other standard interior features include ambient lighting, Sirius radio, Bluetooth hands-free phone service, and three-zone climate control. Drivers will like the improved rear visibility offered by a remote release for the third row headrests.
Still at a reasonable price, the Dodge Durango SUV Crew trim adds in many more features, such as power front seats, a premium audio system, and a rear-view camera. The Citadel adds about $12,000 to the base model's price tag, with leather interior, Sirius backseat TV, skid plates, and a trailer towing equipment. The exterior colors available for the 2012 Dodge Durango include white gold clearcoat, mineral gray metallic clearcoat, canyon brown pearlcoat, bright silver metallic clearcoat, true blue pearlcoat, redline 2 coat pearl and rugged brown pearlcoat. The interior of the Durango can be outfitted in black, tan/black, light frost beige/black and medium graystone/dark graystone.
