The Durango, a mainstay of Dodge's lineup since 1998, is a three-row large SUV with seating up to 7. It has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily bypass mud and snow. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. Dodge offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.


The 2020 Dodge Durango is above average compared to all vehicles.

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). The 2020 Dodge Durango has a score of 87, implying a 0.033% chance of driver death (2.9% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.028%, and the chance of injury falls to 2.5%.

We estimate that the 2020 Dodge Durango has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0326% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.7176%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0326% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.7176% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2020 Dodge Durango is 32% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2020 Dodge Durango is 22% less likely to result in a fatal accident.
