From its sleek exterior design to its modern, spacious interior, and
intelligent, fuel-efficient and powerful powertrain options, the 2011 Dodge
Durango is all-new from the inside out. And the changes are more than skin deep.
The Durango's unibody structure is more than 25 percent stiffer than its
predecessor. The end result is a vehicle with crossover versatility, SUV
capability and performance in a different league than its competitive class.
"Dodge Durango appeals to customers who need the versatility of a crossover
and capability of an SUV, but want the refinement and characteristics of a
premium performance vehicle," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, Dodge Brand
and Senior Vice President, Design - Chrysler Group LLC. "Durango owners love to
drive and relish the feelings it evokes, but also want a vehicle that stands out
from the crowd and expresses their individuality."

thoughtful design will make owners and their crews want to jump in, hunker down
and thoroughly enjoy even the longest drive. Everywhere they touch, from the
steering wheel all the way back to the soft third row armrest, Durango
passengers will feel materials that are refined. Not only is it a pleasure to
behold, it is extremely functional and gives owners a first-class experience,
regardless of the trim level. Durango's interior is also extremely comfortable
