The American automaker presented its new product, which managed to outshine both Chevrolet and Jeep. It became the new Dodge Durango with considerable size and significant changes compared to its predecessor. This Dodge Durango is difficult to call a decent new generation. Rather, it is a global restyling of the model, which was firstly released in 2011. It’s time to upgrade the SUV.

2017 Dodge Durango redesign

The front part is highlighted by a stylish grille, LED DRLs wrapping headlights, as well as round fog lights adorning the bumper. Powerful stylish bumper is very big with bold lines.

If you look at the SUV side, it seems that we face a huge cruise liner. Yes, the end result is impressive, it’s not a compact city car. Huge wheel arches, a high window sills, compact side windows, a powerful exterior rear-view mirrors. All this is complemented by stylish edges on the doors, a flat roof and stylish wheels, which the manufacturer will allow to choose among a wide range.

The rear – sample power and practicality in one. Large luggage door, wide rear window, providing the driver a superb overview of what is happening behind SUV. Additional brake light built into the spoiler, which rises directly above the rear glass. Quite a convenient door provides access into the trunk, stylish and amazing optics along with lean bumper only complement the already excellent look of the car. But it becomes even more beautiful when in the dark red ribbon made of LED lights up. All of them involved more than 190 pieces.

Most likely, the main market  will be the birthplace of the manufacturer – the USA. The car is produced at the facilities of the Chrysler plant located in Detroit. The initial cost of the basic version is 25.5 thousand dollars. But the price tag is pre-restyling version. The novelty might cost a couple thousand more from the start.
