2019 Dodge Durango lineup sees minor changes, some new features.

The 2019 Dodge Durango soldiers on into the new model year with a few changes throughout the range. Most significantly, Dodge facelifted the GT model with the front fascia and LED fog lamps from R/T and SRT models. The GT’s optional performance hood sports a center air intake duct and two heat extractors. An integrated trailer brake controller also comes standard across the range when equipped with the towing package.

Engine options in the 2019 Dodge Durango lineup remain the same. SXT and GT models house a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Citadel models are available with either the V-6 or a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8, the latter of which makes 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. The R/T model comes standard with the 5.7-liter V-8. Finally, the 2019 Dodge Durango SRT model packs a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 with 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. All Durango models come mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

2019 Dodge Durango Citadel models come with second-row captains chairs as standard equipment. Citadel, R/T and SRT models also get an optional 825-watt, 19-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system. Other than that, comfort features from the 2018 model lineup carry over. Dodge is introducing three new paint colors for the 2019 Durango, including F8 Green, Destroyer Gray and Reactor Blue. New 20-inch wheels are available on the GT and R/T in Satin Carbon or Brass Monkey finish. 20-inch wheels on the SRT come in Matte Vapor or Brass Monkey finish.

Pricing for the 2019 Dodge Durango remain the same as last year, starting at $29,995 for a rear-wheel drive SXT. New models are scheduled to hit dealerships in fall 2018.
