2012 Dodge Durango Citadel: Overhauled for 2011, the Dodge Durango qualifies as a wholesale advance on its predecessor. It’s not merely competitive. It’s near the top of its class in many of the things SUV buyers want. This SUV will work best for those with varied needs: plenty of seats, good cargo capacity and great hauling flexibility, class-leading towing capacity or dual-range all-wheel drive. The standard setup is rear-wheel drive, yielding even weight distribution, a compliant bump-soaking ride, quiet cruising and good response to driver commands. The standard 3.6-liter V6 brings 290 horsepower, paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission, though this modern four-cam engine is hauling 4900 pounds around. On the plus side, the V6 gets an EPA-estimated 23 mpg Highway and has a big fuel tank, so those 400-mile scenic routes won’t leave you worrying about the next gas station. Durango Citadel ($40,995) is the top of the line. They come standard with the V6, but also with nearly all available luxury features, including Nappa perforated leather seating, heated and ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, sunroof, the best audio with on-board hard drive, HID headlamps, blind spot warning, rear cross-path detection, adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning, R/T brakes and the 20-inch wheels.
This Durango has everything you can want in an SUV! It is loaded with goodies, has always been serviced regularly at Dodge, was owned by a non-smoker, was garage kept, and is offered in the highly desirable Deep Molten Red with Tan Leather color combo. As the owner of the dealership, this was our family vehicle. The majority of the miles are from family trips from TX to FL and GA. We have always promptly serviced this vehicle when needed, completed all recalls, and completed oil changes at recommended intervals. THe battery is brand new. With 156k miles there has obviously been some wear and tear but it’s minimal. The items to note are; 1/2 rip in front passenger seat, curb rash on 1 rim, and 2 or 3 small rock chips in windshield. Otherwise, and exceptional SUV with lots of life left.
