What Is the 2015 Dodge Durango?

The 2015 Dodge Durango is a six- or seven-seat SUV that comes in four trim levels: SXT, Limited, R/T and Citadel. It has standard rear-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive on all trim levels. It competes with the Honda Pilot, Chevrolet Traverse and Ford Explorer.

What's New on the 2015 Dodge Durango?

A Beats by Dr. Dre audio system is now available on the Limited trim, and it's standard on the R/T and Citadel trims. Blacktop and Rallye Appearance packages are now available on more models as well.

How Does the 2015 Dodge Durango Compare to Other SUVs?

The 2015 Durango boasts bells and whistles found in other SUVs at a more reasonable starting price, making it a solid entry in the 2015 SUV class. It's not as roomy as the Honda Pilot or the Chevrolet Traverse, but its best-in-class towing of 7,400 pounds beats all competitors.

What Features in the 2015 Dodge Durango Are Most Important?

The Durango gets a 290-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and a capless fuel filler. It also has two available engines: a 295-hp version of the 3.6-liter V-6 and a 360-hp, 5.7-liter V-8. When properly equipped, the 2015 Dodge Durango can tow up to 7,400 pounds.

The Durango's standard features include a 5-inch touchscreen, a 7-inch LCD instrument cluster, 18-inch wheels, power and heated door mirrors, a rear window wiper and defroster, projector beam headlights, front foglights and a three-spoke, tilt/telescoping steering wheel with shift paddles. Available features include an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a power moonroof, a Blu-ray and DVD entertainment system, a navigation system, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, the Uconnect multimedia system, a power liftgate, 20-inch wheels, a trailer hitch receiver, LED daytime running lights and high-intensity-discharge headlights.

As is required for all new cars, the 2015 Dodge Durango gets standard front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Seven airbags - including a driver's knee airbag and side-curtain airbags - are also standard on the Durango. A blind spot monitoring system, cross-path detection, an emergency communication system and forward collision warning are all available on the 2015 Durango.

Should I Buy the 2015 Dodge Durango?

The 2015 Dodge Durango boasts stylish interior design and comfortable, supportive front seats. Available features like the 8.4-inch touchscreen sweeten the deal.

There are some negatives to consider, though. The Durango's hefty curb weight can be a drag, and the lack of physical buttons for the heated seats and sliding second-row seats hurt the interior versatility of this SUV. We also think backup aids should be standard safety features for a 2015 SUV.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
