Towing Capacity

The towing capacity for the 2018 Dodge Durango varies across the multiple engine options featured. Pick your engine to pick your towing power with three engines giving three different towing specs:

  • The Dodge Durango SXT features a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine which brings a best-in-class maximum towing power of 6,200 pounds
  • Upgrade to the available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine and your maximum towing power jumps to an impressive 7,400 pounds.
  • Climb behind the wheel of a 2018 Dodge Durango SRT® and tow more than ever before with an ample 8,700 best-in-class towing power generated by a  6.4L HEMI engine.

With these options, there isn’t much you can’t haul behind the wheel of the new Durango.


Towing Features

SUV drivers know that towing capability involves more than just raw power. The 2018 Durango brings other design aspects and features to make it the ideal SUV for any long haul from New Lenox. Highlights include:

  • Standard Trailer Sway Control: This feature applies brake pressure on alternating wheels and ultimately may adjust engine throttle to help eliminate sway and maintain overall vehicle and trailer stability.
  • 50/50 Weight Distribution: The front engine and rear drive axle are made for a near 50/50 weight distribution on rear-wheel drive models. When accelerating, weight shifts to the drive axle to increase downforce and helps improve traction and vehicle and trailer control.
