The 2017 Dodge Durango doesn’t see numerous changes compared to its predecessor, but the ones that are made have really improved this SUV. One noticeable change is the introduction of the Dodge Durango GT trim, which replaces the Limited trim while giving the vehicle a sportier monochromatic exterior appearance.
However, there’s some added features and upgrades that you’ll enjoy whether you drive around town or commute in the North New Jersey area. With that being said, let’s delve into these improvements.
2017 Dodge Durango: What’s New Inside & Out
Anodized Platinum Revisions
Debuting in the middle of 2016, the Dodge Durango Anodized Platinum Appearance Package was introduced as an option for the Citadel trim.
It has returned for 2017 with the following design cues:
- Anodized Gunmetal trim on the steering wheel and front & rear door speakers and tweeters
- Platinum Chrome trim on the 7” TFT customizable gauge cluster, center stack and both front & rear console
- Platinum Chrome accents on the grille surround, fog lamp bezels, door handles, exterior badging & lower sills
- Black & sepia 2-tone Nappa leather seats with silver accent stitching
- Soft-touch hand-wrapped instrument panel with silver accent
Easier Towing Experience
We know that drivers in the Bergen and Rockland County area like the fact that the 2017 Dodge Durango can tow up to 7,400 lbs, which is more than plenty for a boat, camper or bringing your various off-road toys for a fun day or weekend. If you opt for the 8.4” Uconnect touchscreen, then you can actually see the item(s) you’re trailering via a rear-mounted camera to ease the process of backing it all up.
Added Dodge Durango R/T Options
If you choose the 2017 Dodge Durango R/T, then you can get a couple of new upgrades. A new hand-wrapped soft-touch instrument panel with red accent stitching gives the interior a more premium look, while utility can be maximized thanks to the available black roof rails.
