This midsize SUV isn’t just a speed demon in an SUV’s body like its front end might insinuate. The 2020 Dodge Durango puts safety first, without having to sacrifice performance and its own unique form of Dodge styling. Read on to find out how the 2020 Dodge Durango is designed to keep its driver and passengers safe on the road, and off.
No matter how many cameras and computers you put into a car, there is no more important component to safety in a car than a good set of brakes. The 2020 Dodge Durango combines modern technological innovation and quality braking performance to make the SUV the safest vehicle it can be. Activating the windshield wipers activates brake drying, a system that applies light pressure to the brake calipers to dry off the pads and prevent slipping if the driver needs to stop. Available brake assist can boost power to your brakes when the vehicle detects a crash is imminent. Stopping distance is also shrunk down thanks to electronic brake force distribution. The Durango also knows when you suddenly let pressure off the accelerator, and will automatically prepare the brakes for a panic stop.
Safety Through Construction and Technology
Down to its bones, the 2020 Dodge Durango is made with strength. The chassis is made from strong steel to protect everyone inside in the event of a collision. Ideally, technological functions like adaptive cruise control and the onboard blind spot monitoring system eliminate many of the times where collisions might have happened.
The 2020 Dodge Durango is built for more than just on-road driving, however. Drivers who plan to take their Durango off-road will benefit from Electronic Stability Control and Electronic Roll Mitigation, which team up to help keep your vehicle on course and right-side-up if you lose traction or go over uneven terrain. In the end, the best way to stay safe in any vehicle is to drive safely and responsibly. No amount of technology can replace an attentive, prepared driver.
