2005 Dodge Durango - Price Quote

Visit Dodge for more information on the Dodge Durango.

The manufacturers at Dodge love to provide customers with varied lineups that range from value to valuable. With the Durango it is no different. There are no less than three rugged engines powering this tough sport utility vehicle.

In another major change, Dodge offers an Adventurer package for 2005. This outdoor-enthusiast lover's dream is perfect for camping trips back into the wild. With the solid construction of the Durango, you'll have peace of mind that you're not going to get stuck out there when it's time to come back either.

For 2005, Dodge Durango offers heated cloth seats-an industry first for SUVs-on all Durango models, plus an available full-screen navigation system.

Available Models
The 2005 Dodge Dakota Durango comes as an ST model with two rows of seats for five-passenger capacity, and as SLT and Limited models that seat seven on three rows. There's also a new SXT model.

Interior Features
Practical features abound with the 2005 Durango. It has a large and usable "fast food" bin at the base of the center stack for extra storage room, multiple cup holders and several power sources for phones and accessories.

However, so too do luxury features. The Limited model offers automatic climate control, leather upholstery, an 8-way power passenger seat, power-adjustable pedals, a memory system (driver seat, mirrors, pedals), a leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls, an AM/FM radio with in-dash 6-disc CD/MP3 changer and heated power mirrors with driver-side automatic day/night.

Exterior Features
The Adventurer trim includes a roof with a choice of six-rack systems or an Adventurer Accessory kit. Also standard are Satin Silver tubular side steps, reversible slush mats, a rubberized, washable cargo liner with a built-in rear cargo organizer and unique machine-finished aluminum wheels.

In addition, there's unique badging, unique mineral gray side moldings with Satin Silver inserts, Satin Silver roof rack side rails and mineral gray painted front and rear fascias.

Dodge offers a standard 3.7-liter V6 engine with the base ST model. It can produce up to 210 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 235 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. 4-speed automatic transmission is the sole setup for this motor.

The rest of the model lineup uses a 4.7-liter Magnum V8. With 230 horsepower at 4600 rpm and 290 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm, it is quite strong. 5-speed automatic is the transmission of choice.

Then there's the 5.7-liter HEMI Magnum V-8. It pumps out 335 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 370 lb-ft of torque at 5200 rpm.

Safety and Security
Antilock 4-wheel disc brakes are standard across the line. Curtain side airbags are optional.
