The 2018 Dodge Durango has arrived at local Ohio dealerships, including Sherry Chrysler. With this updated version of the family-friendly SUV on the lot, it is time to make sure that you are familiar with its features and what separates this model from the previous model year. As always, the Durango is the largest SUV in the Dodge lineup, featuring your choice of two or three rows of seating. There is also the familiar choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
New SRT Trim
Perhaps the biggest news for the 2018 Dodge Durango is the addition of a new SRT trim level. This trim gives you a 6.4-liter V8 powertrain that delivers 475 horsepower and lets the SUV reach 60 mph from a standstill in only 4.4 seconds. It only takes 12.9 seconds for the new Durango SRT to complete the quarter mile. In addition, this trim is ready to tow 8,600 pounds.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, frequently referred to as just the Dodge Demon, is ready for thrills and will certainly appeal to anyone who wants all the power they can get. The Demon delivers an incredible amount of power and has numerous records under its belt, ensuring that it will help you win nearly any drag race – unless, of course, you are racing against another Dodge Demon.
Top Performance Figures

When you buy a new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or RAM vehicle, you get the peace of mind that comes with an extensive warranty. The result is less money spent on regular car repairs and maintenance and even some roadside assistance so you don’t have to worry about getting a flat tire in the middle of nowhere.
Understanding the Coverage
The warranty coverage for a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or RAM vehicle is essentially the same since they are all part of the same larger company. Most people choose to buy a gas-powered vehicle, and in this case, you will get a Powertrain Limited Warranty that lasts 60,000 miles or 5 years, whichever comes first. The Powertrain Limited Warranty for diesel vehicles is even better, lasting 5 years or 100,000 miles. Depending on the vehicle, even the gas engine may have 100,000 miles of coverage. In either case, the Powertrain Limited Warranty includes the drive system, transmission, [...]
Finding your next family car doesn’t have to be an overwhelming challenge if you take the time to do some research.

When it comes time to buy your next car, you will have to make a few important decisions, including what brand you want to buy and the body style. Some people prefer sedans while others prefer SUVs. This is largely a matter of personal preference since you can find the same features and amenities on either style of vehicle. To figure out which is right for you, consider a few key areas where one excels over the other.
Versatility and Seating Space
In terms of versatility, even a small SUV tends to take the lead over a sedan. Both body styles will typically have split and folding rear seats, but SUVs will have more spacious cargo areas, as well. Their taller roofs also provide extra headroom, something many drivers appreciate. Like sedans, most small SUVs will only have seating for five passengers due to space constraints. However, you can find the occasional small SUV with [...]
