Visit Dodge for more information on the Dodge Durango.

The bold and rugged Dodge Durango SUV is a tribute to its original conception - the generous interior passenger and cargo space of a full-size SUV, versatility, and outstanding performance and handling. It has remained a dominating force in its market for years.

Available Models
The tough new 2002 Dodge Durango SUV is available in five models - Sport, SLT, SLT Plus, and R/T models. New this year is the SXT model, with unique upgrades to select luxury and performance features.

Interior Features
Within the roomy cabin are a standard four-speaker AM/FM stereo with cassette player and equalizer, and an optional rear Mopar DEV Entertainment Center - a thankful addition for those of you traveling with children on long trips. The standard two-row seating configuration accommodates five passengers, and a third row seat comes standard on SLT, SLT Plus, and R/T models to fit up to eight people. The new SXT comes with a standard AM/FM stereo with CD player.

A heat, ventilation, and air conditioning system for the rear seating area is available as an option, and dual-zone climate control is standard. The Durango SLT Plus and Durango R/T are finished off in fine style with genuine leather upholstery, an optional feature on the SLT. Heated and six-way power seats for both driver and front passenger are optional. Another option is an eight-speaker Infinity sound system.

Exterior Features
Durango R/T sports bright R/T badging, color-keyed wheel flares. The Dodge Durango SXT is all dressed up and ready to go with graphite front and rear fascias, grille and fender flares, sixteen-inch cast aluminum wheels, roof rack, and optional running boards.

Two highly impressive engines are available with the Dodge Durango SUV. The 4.7-litre Magnum eight-cylinder engine produces 235 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, while the 5.9-litre Magnum eight-cylinder engine is the largest in its class and delivers 245 horsepower and 335 lb-ft of torque. The standard transmission is a highly reactive automatic, and the towing capacity is 7,550 lbs when properly equipped, with a standard towing capacity of 1,670 lbs.

The Dodge Durango SUV is offered in either 2WD or 4WD configurations. Around half way through the year, a 5-45RFE five-speed automatic transmission will increase fuel efficiency.

Safety and Security
New for 2002 are upgrades in this department, such as the addition of side-curtain air bags for the front and second row seats. Other standard safety measures include a driver air bag, passenger air bag, three-point seatbelts, head restraints, front and rear crumple zones, side impact door beams, and child seat tethers and anchors.
