To make the most out of buying a 2020 Dodge Durango, make sure you get the right trim level. Since there are a total of eight trim levels to the SUV, finding the right trim for your needs requires a bit of research. The reason for there being so many trim levels is partially due to how many ways the Durango can be used. If you want it as a simple passenger vehicle, there are trims for that. There are also trims for higher performance, off-roading, sportiness, internal technology, and much more. Read on to learn a little about each one.
The base model of the Durango features the classic dodge crosshair grille design and seats up to seven people. It gets decent gas mileage and can tow over 6,000 lbs.
SXT Plus RWD/AWD
This version of the base model comes with satellite radio, powered driver seat adjustment, and roof rails for more utility than the regular SXT.
This version introduces the sportier front end with black grille and body-color-matched fascia, antenna, and sill molding. You can also get different colors for this trim level that are not available on lower trims.
GT Plus RWD/AWD
Almost identical externally to the regular GT, this version has a power liftgate, remote vehicle start, heated steering wheel, and USB charging ports for phones and other devices.
The citadel brings a sense of luxury to the Durango. Nappa-leather trimmed seats and second-row captain’s chairs play a big role in upping the interior quality, even if it does reduce seating to 6.
This trim says hello to the 5.7L engine and gets badging to match. Uconnect ® 4C NAV with the 8.4-inch touch screen and an Alpine® sound system means higher-tech and a greater sense of interior quality than lower trim levels.
Citadel Anodized Platinum RWD/AWD
It may have a strange name, but this version of the Durango improves over everything that made the RT trim great, and adds high-intensity discharge headlamps, soft-touch hand-wrapped instrument panel with live stitch.
This is the point where American muscle meets sensible midsize SUV to produce something unique and wonderful. The 6.4L HEMI ® SRT ® V8 engine has a 0-60 of 4.4 seconds and can pull nearly 9,000 lbs. when towing. Active noise canceling, Brembo ® brakes, and Bilstein ® Suspension turns this version of the Durango into another thing entirely from ever trim level below it.
