Vehicle Feature Series: Dodge Durango – Frugal Novice

Vehicle Feature Series: Dodge Durango

This is a sponsored post partnered with Kahlo Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. All opinions are honest and are my own.

In my latest post on vehicle features, I’m focusing on the Dodge Durango. I mentioned in my first post my love of SUVs, and I enjoyed learning about all this model has to offer, particularly when it comes to safety.

The Durango has all sorts of tech-advanced features like keyless enter ‘n go and UConnect technology that includes Remote Vehicle Start, Roadside Assistance, Android Auto Integration, Apple CarPlay Support, and navigation system. You can even add in a dual-screen Blu-Ray entertainment system.

The Durango has a strong and secure steel cage that helps keep you safe and secure in case of an accident. It has a blind spot monitoring system, and has Electronic Stability Control with Electronic Roll Mitigation that helps you maintain directional control on low-traction surfaces and helps prevent rollover. The Durango uses throttle control and limited braking when detecting slower traffic ahead to adjust cruising speed and keep a safe distance.

The brakes on the Durango are high-tech and intuitive, too, including: 

  • RAIN BRAKE SUPPORT When the windshield wipers are activated, light pressure is applied to the calipers to remove water from the pads.
  • BRAKE ASSIST Available Brake Assist can boost the braking power when it detects the rate and amount of brake application for emergencies.
  • READY-ALERT BRAKING Suddenly releasing the accelerator pedal will activate Ready Alert Braking, which prepares the brakes for a panic stop.
  • ELECTRONIC BRAKE FORCE DISTRIBUTION Regardless of any vehicle-load conditions, Electronic Brake Force Distribution regulates braking pressure from front to rear to enhance stopping distances.
