The Next edition of Dodge Durango appears set to receive its next redesign for its 2022 release date. As part of a broader strategy to ramp-up production of 3-row SUVs, FCA has announced large investments geared toward its Mack Avenue Engine Complex and Jefferson North Assembly Plant (both in Detroit, Michigan).
2022 Durango Style Design
From the info that we have got, The 2022 Durango will get a more aggressive look by taking some fashion advice from the Dodge Charger widebody. It borrows elements from the four-door muscle car’s front fascia, LED headlights and running lights, hood, grille, and rear spoiler. On the hell-raising’ SRT Hellcat, the fog lamps are ditched for air intakes to cool the big supercharged V-8, and the SRT 392 models get a new front splitter and rear spoiler. There are three different grille textures across the Durango lineup: the hellcats are gloss black and get larger openings for cooling, of course; the SRT 392, R/T, and GT models have a wide honeycomb grille in black; and the Citadel and SXT models get a painted Granite Crystal grille.
Unfortunately, details on what the next-generation Durango will look like have not yet been announced. Previously, the Durango was reportedly slated to be discontinued ahead of the revival of the Wagoneer & Grand Wagoneer nameplates as new 3-row SUVs. As it stands, it’s likely that the current Durango will soldier-on through at least 2021.
Additionally, the 2021 Durango has a closet full of new shoes: six choices of new 20-inch wheel designs from silver to satin carbon to full-on black. On the SRT Hellcat and SRT 392, the wheels are wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion Zero all-season rubber, though P Zero high-performance tires are available. Dual-center stripes are still available on the GT, R/T, SRT 392, and SRT Hellcat models, and can be equipped in black with red accents, Bright Blue, Flame Red, Gunmetal Low Gloss, and Sterling Silver.
Interior & Navigation
On the inside, The 2022 Durango will feature a new instrument panel, roomier center console, and a 10.1-inch touch screen because who doesn’t like big screens? However, an 8.4-inch screen is standard on the SXT and GT models. Both screens are equipped with the latest Uconnect 5 infotainment system with standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa, and don’t worry, there are still buttons for things like the climate control settings.
Underneath the screen, there’s a new wireless charging pad along with roomier center console storage. A flat-bottom steering wheel with paddle shifters taken from the Challenger and Charger is standard on the SRT models but can be equipped on the GT and R/T as well.
Engine Options & Performance
The 2022 Dodge Durango will get a 710-hp SRT Hellcat variant, that’s the exciting news. However, the entire 2022 Durango lineup, including the SXT, GT, Citadel, R/T, and SRT 392 models, is getting updated looks, a new driver-focused cabin, and new technology. They won’t cover a quarter-mile of asphalt as quickly, but these are some much-needed improvements to Dodge’s big SUV.
Prices & Release Date
At the moment, there no official word about the 2022 Dodge Durango prices and release date. However, the 2021 version of Durango has an MSRP of $32,000 for its base model and $83,000 for the SRT Hellcat, We expect the 2022 Durango price will be higher $2000 than that.
