Strong on technology, it has offered Android Auto and Apple CarPlay since 2018. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. Having more than average horsepower for its class, the Durango packs some oomph. Dodge offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury).
