Vehicle Details

The 2012 Dodge Durango is the seven-passenger cousin of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which in turn is related to the Mercedes-Benz ML-Class. The 2012 Durango is a crossover SUV that still can tow heavy loads, go off-road, and haul seven passengers in complete comfort (though we wouldn’t recommend doing all three at once). The Durango is available with rear- or all-wheel drive, a V-6 or V-8 engine option allowing a towing capacity of up to 7400 lbs, and can seat seven adults in comfort.

The Durango’s two engine options are a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 and a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8. Only available with a five-speed automatic transmission, the 3.6-liter V-6 produces 290 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, and returns an EPA estimated 16/23 mpg city/highway in rear- and all-wheel drive forms. The other powertrain option is a 5.7-liter V-8 paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, which is EPA-estimated to get 14/20 mpg city/highway in rear-drive form, and 13/20 mpg city/highway in all-wheel drive.

For 2012 the Durango gets a few minor changes that include a six-speed automatic for V-8 models, available second-row captain’s chairs, and a new color options.

Body style: SUV
Engines: 3.6L V-6, 5.7L V-8 
Transmissions: 5-speed automatic, 6-speed automatic
Models: Dodge Durango SXT, Dodge Durango Crew, Dodge Durango R/T, Dodge Durango Citadel

Dodge has a few changes in store for 2012 Durangos. The biggest change for 2012 is the addition of a six-speed automatic transmission on Hemi V-8-equipped Durangos. Dodge has also revised AWD Pentastar V-6 models so that they now eek out 23 mpg highway, up one mpg compared to last year. Dodge has revised the trim levels for 2012, dropping the Express, Heat, and CrewLux trims in favor of SXT, Crew, R/T, and Citadel trims, and is adding second-row captain’s chairs as an available option.

The Dodge Durango is a rather aggressive looking SUV. The Durango is follows the traditional SUV formula of offering a masculine-designed SUV with a long aggressive hood and an even longer body. Durango R/T models come standard with a sport appearance package which features a more aggressive lower fascia and unique satin carbon finished 20-inch wheels. For 2012 there are three new colors available on the Durango: Deep Molten Red, Canyon Brown, and True Blue.

For the 2012 model year, the Dodge Durango’s interior remains unchanged with the exception of second-row captain’s chairs being made available. The 2012 Dodge Durango is a true seven-passenger SUV with an adult-friendly third row. The Durango’s interior features over 30 storage cubbies, has 28 seating configurations, and (with the second and third rows folded) has almost 85 cubic feet of cargo room. Dodge says that’s enough room to swallow up a six-foot long couch and a coffee table at the same time.

Dodge proudly touts the Durango as a sort-of Sport-SUV with near 50:50 weight distribution and an available 5.7-liter Hemi V-8. The Hemi V-8 produces 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque and puts its power down to the rear wheels or all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. In our testing, a rear-drive R/T model accelerated from 0-60 mph in 7.3 seconds. The base engine is a 3.6-liter 290-hp 260 lb-ft V-6. In our testing and all-wheel-drive Crew model managed to hit 60 mph from a standstill in 9.0 seconds.

As expected in a modern SUV, the 2012 Dodge Durango comes with a host of safety features. All 2012 Durangos come standard including front driver and passenger airbags, full-length side-curtain airbags, and front seat-mounted side-thorax airbags. 2012 Durangos also get standard traction control, electronic stability control, Electronic Roll Mitigation, and Trailer-sway Control. All-wheel drive, Blind-Spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross Path detection systems are all available. The 2012 Dodge Durango is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick.

Georgia Buyers We recommend that all of our buyers set up an appointment before coming to our dealership. This way we can provide the highest level of service and make sure that the vehicle you are interested in is available. We rely on Car Fax reports to give you the full history of the vehicle that is available. These sources pull from different resources and are never 100% accurate, sometimes some information does not make the history reports. We highly recommend that our customers preform a pre-purchase inspection. Registration can take up to 30 days to be completed. Once all paperwork has been transferred to the appropriate tag office we will send you a registration letter via mail or email. Georgia emissions are required to be performed if the county requires them. Please confirm with your knowledgeable sales team if your new purchase would need emission work done. You can also go to a third party source, cleanairforce.com to confirm that the vehicle has been tested and passed. Georgia law does not allow us to hand over any title during the sale, even if you pay cash. Certain processes are required and we must abide by the regulations. Out-of-State Buyers Lara Truck Sales does a lot of business with customers outside the state of Georgia. This eliminates any surprise that could happen when you get here. We try to do our best to satisfy all of our customers and we would be more than happy to take the vehicle to the mechanic of your choice (you will be fully responsible for any and all charges that may apply).
